The story of Riva Yachts began in Sarnico when, after a fierce storm, Pietro Riva, a skilled carpenter, began to fix the damaged boats in the harbour. Pietro then opened a shipyard in Sarnico where the very first Riva creations were built. Riva Yachts became wellknown in the shipping industry and continued to become successful even after Pietro’s son, Ernesto, took over the management of the company. He significantly raised the quality and fame of the Riva brand. Over the 1920s and 30s, the Riva family broke a number of records with its motorboats and speedboats in national and international competitions.
