Ferretti Breaks Group Record With 122ft Mythos Launch

Riva Yachts and CRN Yacht have collaborated in their largest build to date, of a 122-foot superyacht, Mythos, which was launched from CRN's shipyard in Ancona, Italy, on March 15, 2014.

The two firms have a long history of working together on yacht builds, but their largest projects, prior to Mythos, have been 90-foot and 100-foot Vespucci yachts. The new yacht is the largest yacht built in the 172-year history of Feretti, and its first entirely built in aluminum from the Ancona shipyard.

The superyacht was produced in a three-cabin configuration for a client who will take delivery in May. The standard version will feature four cabins, but may have up to five cabins on request. The vessel's maximum speed is 27.5 knots, with a cruising speed of 25 knots, powered by two MTU 12 V 4000 M 93L, 3510 mhp engines.

During the summer months the 122' Mythos is scheduled to cruise across the Mediterranean Sea, and it will be officially presented to the public at the 2014 Festival International de la Plaisance in Cannes.

"Today is a very special day for Riva and for all of us at the Ferretti Group as it marks a new chapter in Riva's prestigious 172 year history," commented Ferruccio Rossi, Ferretti Group's CEO. "This is indeed – for the Mythos – the beginning of a path that we believe will be extremely successful. For Riva, in turn, it's another exciting chapter of a book that we keep writing day after day, feeling great pride and responsibility in doing so. We are sure that the new flagship will be an extraordinary ambassador for Riva, for the Ferretti Group, and for the entire Italian boating industry, as a symbol of industrial know-how and unmistakable Italian beauty. We can't wait to officially present it to all Riva enthusiasts all over the world," added Rossi.
