Lanéva Retrofit supported by the Government of Monaco

As part of the launch of its new branch, and in particular the first retrofit project of a vintage Riva, Lanéva benefits from the support of the Mission for Energy Transition of the Prince’s government. 

Under the impetus of H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince, the Prince’s Government is pursuing a committed energy transition policy which should reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030 compared to 1990. As part of the recovery due to the COVID19 crisis, the Monegasque government is adding a new axis to its Green Fund. The purpose of this Fund is to support any Monegasque company that carries out a project contributing to the energy transition. This boat retrofit project is financially supported by the Prince’s Government via the team of the Mission for Energy Transition (MTE) which leads this Green Fund. 

The project 

The conversion of a vintage Riva boat to 100% electric propulsion.  Originally equipped with a 177 HP Chrysler V8 engine, the Riva Ariston had several lives before becoming a 100% electric boat.  The operation consisted in removing this engine, the associated supports and all the equipment related to the heat engine.

The engineering developed for this project has made it possible to expand the range of vintage Riva boats which will soon be electrified. All models are affected.  It is therefore not just a project but a sector that has been launched in Monaco thanks to the continued support of the Government.

A Princely Inauguration for the first Lanéva Boat

The boat Lanéva left her Italian shipyard a few weeks ago to join her Monegasque base.

A few days after her arrival, the boat had an appointment at the Monaco Yacht Club to be officially launched and inaugurated. We had the privilege of welcoming HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco for a ribbon cutting under a sun perfectly set for the event. Accompanied by the Vice-President of his Foundation and the Minister of the Environment, the sovereign boarded the boat to discover the unique combination of materials: flax fiber, cork, sustainable wood, upholstery made of recyclable materials.

The fifty or so guests took turns to discover our new boat designed in Monaco, which catches the eye with its blue-colored hull.

The trials are open and you can book your slot on our website.

Lanéva will continue the presentation of his boat with the exhibition EVER Monaco which takes place from 8 to 10 May 2019 and which will lead to two round tables on sustainable sailing, organized by Lanéva and visits to the Yacht Club of Monaco where you will find the boat in the water. In general, this show will be an opportunity to discover the latest developments in terms of electric mobility.
