RIVA 85' opera
yacht painting


For this project, the MS1 team did a full yacht painting job for the Riva Opera for the first time. The yacht had old paint on the exteriors with growing cracks, thus the need for a painting service.

The project involved overall restoration, and the painting requirements were fully customized to the client’s request and were specifically sourced from the Riva factory in Italy. The project took approximately 2 months to complete. The mahogany had also begun to crack and lift, requiring a full exterior restoration.
