Riva 50-meter will contain steel hulls and aluminum superstructures. It will be a displacement yacht with 4 decks, with luxurious accommodation for up to twelve guests, as well as 9 crew. The crew will have a dedicated stairway leading up to the main-deck galley and farther up to the wheelhouse. The sun deck will feature freestanding seats plus a Jacuzzi while the aft area on the lower deck will feature a real beach club, a cocktail bar and an indoor living room.

Power will come from either twin CAT C32s or a pair of MAN D2862 LE 466 engines. Both are capable of pushing the yacht to a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots and she will have a range of 3,800 nm at 11 knots.
