Riva 122 Mythos Construction Update

The Riva 122 Mythos, the largest Riva to date—and the first built entirely in aluminum—is five months from completion. The photo above was taken in June, while the image below was taken in September.

While the 122-foot (37-meter) megayacht represents some significant firsts, the Riva 122 Mythos also represents a rekindling of a relationship. The yacht is being built by CRN, Riva’s sister company under the Ferretti Group umbrella. CRN and Riva first collaborated well before they became sister companies. In 1970, Riva’s founder, Carlo Riva, approached CRN to produce projects together, culminating in several builds through 1978.

Even with CRN’s involvement, the Riva 122 Mythos is most definitely a Riva. She’s based on the 86 Domino, so she has a coupe-like profile. Like all Rivas, the megayacht is designed by Officiana Italiana Design. Additional input comes from Ferrettigroup Engineering and AYTD, the Ferretti Group’s research division. Since speed is also in the DNA of all Rivas, the Riva 122 Mythos is expected to cruise at 25 knots. Top end should be 27½ knots, with twin MTU 12V 4000 M93L diesels.

The 24’9” beam (7.6-meter beam) megayacht should feel extra-spacious due to just two guest staterooms accompanying the full-beam master suite below decks. Four crewmembers and the captain are housed forward. You may recall that Riva allows buyers to choose different layouts for many of its models. The builder offers a standard four-stateroom arrangement for the 122 Mythos and even a five-stateroom option. The owner of  this first Riva 122 Mythos has requested Canaletto walnut throughout, which is being installed now. Complementing it are leather, white lacquer, and steel.

Additionally noteworthy about the Riva 122 Mythos’ layout: a dining area inside the galley, akin to a chef’s table at a restaurant. The owner, from Brazil, is passionate about food and cooking. He and four or five other people can gather here. There’s also a formal dining area open to the saloon.

No Riva would be complete without alfresco spaces. The Riva 122 Mythos has a hot tub, a sunpad, seating, and a bar/mini galley on the flying bridge. The captain can drive the megayacht up here, too, or below in the raised pilothouse. The swim platform lowers to ease swimmers’ access to the water and to allow boarding of watertoys. There’s a garage for a PWC and a separate garage for a tender.

Upon delivery to her owner, the Riva 122 Mythos will represent a few interesting statistics. About 15,000 man hours will have gone into painting, 10,000 man hours will have been spent on woodwork, and 8,000 man hours will have gone into electrical systems.

Here’s what the two-tone grey Riva 122 Mythos should look like.

IAG Yachts Building Serenity for U.S. Owner

Pershing 108

Serenity, the 133-foot (40.4-meter) megayacht depicted here, is about six months into construction at IAG Yachts. She’s the latest project for the China-based megayacht builder, and she was commissioned by an American buyer. In fact, Serenity is for the owner who took delivery of a same-named 116-foot (35.4-meter) Lazzara in 2008 and has been using her ever since.

IAG Yachts terms the megayacht a Noble Star Terrazza model, for two reasons. First, Serenity is similar in profile to the Noble Star 140 series being offered by IAG Yachts. Both bear styling by Evan K. Marshall. “Terrazza” is part of the megayacht model’s name due to permanent balconies. You can see one forward on the main deck and the other farther aft on the deck above. The balcony feature was incorporated at the request of the owner.

Like her predecessor, the six-stateroom Serenity will serve her owner’s family and charter guests. IAG Yachts is building the Noble Star Terrazza to RINA’s Charter Class, with naval architecture by Axis Group Yacht Design. Marshall is additionally working with the owner on the interior. Beam is a comfortable 26’5” (about 8.1 meters).

IAG Yachts is employing resin-infusion construction to save weight. That, of course, should also translate to better performance. IAG Yachts anticipates Serenity seeing a 2,600-mile range at 12 knots with Caterpillar C32 engines. She should also enjoy many different anchorages due to a shallow-water-friendly seven-foot (2.1-meter) draft at half load.

This first Noble Star Terrazza is set for delivery in 2015.

In other IAG Yachts news, the first in its Noble Star series is making progress. The hull of the 140-foot (42.7-meter) fiberglass megayacht emerged from its mold in August. Delivery to her American owner is expected by the end of next year. She’s expected to be christened King Baby .
