The Port


The new Carlo Riva Marina

An impressive redevelopment project gives the city of Rapallo a new port, open to everyone, capable of satisfying the needs of both yachtsmen and citizens. A meeting place for enthusiasts and tourists, in the heart of the Tigullio and the Mediterranean: this is the new Carlo Riva docks.

Il Porto

A landmark for Italian boating for 50 years

Founded in 1975, Porto Carlo Riva is one of the first private marinas in Italy and an iconic location for Italian yachting. The Port was created under the leadership of Carlo Riva - owner of the namesake luxury yacht brand, a seaman and a pioneer of nautical boating - and quickly became a destination to be for boat owners. This was possible thanks to the high quality of its services and its strategic position on the Riviera di Levante, which allows quick access to nearby Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino, as well as the main Mediterranean destinations.

Today, the Port is reborn to guarantee maximum safety, combined with innovation and modernity: the new layout allows it to accommodate larger vessels and is enriched with selected infrastructures and services, providing a unique experience to our guests.


A new layout for tomorrow’s boating industr

The layout of the new Porto Carlo Riva, designed by the Tectoo architectural office and realised in collaboration with the best experts in the nautical sector, has been thought out with an eye to the needs of modern boating.
