The Riva Ariston is the most durable of the production of the shipyard, which began in 1950 and ended in 1976 with 1,012 units. The runabout for excellence, the Favourite Eng. Carlo Riva.
This Ariston is one of 59 produced in 1959 and, at the time, this series was characterised by its very dark Philippine mahogany sides, the new dashboard with dished steering wheel, new grey Chris-Craft instruments. The hood changed: a transparent plastic window opened by a zipper was put into the back.
The boat is being completely restored to its originality.
Chris-Craft MCL 6-cylinder 175 HP engine overhauled.
