Product Description

"Rolls-Royce of the Sea', "Stradivarius of Boating" are just some of the phrases that have been used to describe the Riva Aquarama. The Riva Aquarama will forever be worshiped.

In 1962, Carlo Riva introduced the Aquarama series of new fast runabouts. This fast bi-motor has so much charm and elegance that she is compared with Rolls-Royce and Ferrari.

Riva redesigned his top-selling Tritone into the Lipicar, a boat perfectly adapted for family water sports. Riva's RR and export manager Gerard Kouwenhoven suggested the name Aquarama instead. The Jet-Set quickly made the boat Europe's status synmbol.

Power options were a pair of 185-hp Chris-Craft engines or 220-hp Riva V8s.

Later the boat size increased to 8.25 meters and was powered by 2 -220 horse power engines. The boat could sit eight persons at speed of 75km/h. In 1966, The firm presented the Super version that is 8.45 m long because of the big gas tanks necessary for the new 320 horse power engines.

Its performance became exceptional, the Super Aquarama speed is close to 90km/h. The architect Giorgio Barilaini , who was in charge of the yard projects since 1957, re-designed the stern: he created a strainer (passage) that make the access to the swiming ladder easier. This new version was 8.75 long and named Aquarama Special.

With the Special version , Aquarama signed its best model, who is still the floret of the shipbuilding yard. 767 units of this graceful mahogany powerboat have been made.

Only the finest materials, including well-seasoned mahogany and teak are used in order to duplicate the brilliance of this classic mahogany speedboat. All reproduction is plank on frame.
