The year of 2012 marked a great moment of history within the shipyard industry and within the Principality of Monaco:
The 170th year Riva anniversary ( 1842- 2012), the 50 years of the Aquarama and the 90th year birthday anniversary of Carlo Riva the Engineer.

For the special occasion, the Riva trophy 5th edition, organised by Monaco Boat Service group in collaboration with Yacht Club de Monaco, united the whole family from the prestigious boatyard for this unique triple celebration.

Riva’s history is intimately linked to that of the Principality, thanks to the Princes who have always been open to initiatives and encouraged the development of recreational boats making Monaco the reference in terms of yachting, said Carlo Riva, the ‘Ingegnere de Sarnico’, at the Riva Trophy prize-giving in 2012.
