Riva Tritone

The Riva boat company celebrates its 175th anniversary in 2017. Pietro Riva started repairing and then building boats on Lago d’Iseo in Northern Italy in 1842 and handed down the company through three generations until Carlo Riva took command of the company in 1954. Notably, 2017 also marks the 95th birthday of Carlo Riva, as well as the 55th anniversary of the Riva Aquarama model. Whilst Riva boats had been very well built and highly regarded for the first 110 or so years of the firm’s existence, it would be the runabouts of Carlo Riva that made the name an international symbol of La Dolce Vita on water, an essential part of life for any would be jet setter or style leader of the mid-20th Century. That Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, the Shah of Persia, Dino de Laurentis and Prince Ranieri had a Riva runabout was to understand that to own one was to live in a world of ultimate glamour. But the reputation of the Riva boat wasn’t built on style alone, although they all have looks to spare. In the 1920s and ‘30s, Serafino Riva built motorboats that set speed records and won many competitions. Their combination of powerful engines and expertly shaped hulls made them both fast and comfortable for cruising. That Riva Tritone was one of the first Rivas to be constructed using prefabrication and covering in plywood and she was the subject of a complete renovation in 2015/2016. The original engines are currently undergoing a total renovation. A very great opportunity to buy one of the most iconic boats ever built and in such amazing condition. So stylish and exotic with old school charm. Further info on request.
