Riva Aquarama Speedboat Model

Origin: Italian

Year: 1972

The Riva Aquarama is a luxury wooden runabout built by Italian yacht builder Riva. However, production of it and its derivatives (the Lungo, Super, and Special) ran from 1962 until 1996.

Firstly, the hull was based on the Riva Tritone, an earlier model speedboat by Riva. Instead,  which in turn was inspired by the American mahogany Chris-Craft runabouts.

The boat’s speed, beauty, and craftsmanship earned it praise as the Ferrari of the boat world. The company was founded by Pietro Riva in 1842, and run by Carlo Riva through its 1969 sale to the American Whittaker Corporation.

First built in 1962, it launched the open outdoor area of the Tritone Aperto together with new features.

After selling the Riva yard, Carlo Riva was part of the creation of the “Monte Carlo Offshorer” brand. Developed together with Bob Hopps and Cal Connell, the Monte Carlo Offshorer 27 (70s).

The Monte Carlo Superfast Offshorer was built out of fibre glass and was the first production runabout. Its engines were centreline mounted with heavy duty chain drives transmitting torque. The V drives were mounted well forward and powered shallow angle propeller shafts using Radice properties. Aquariva continues the Aquarama heritage into the 2000s with elegant sinuous lines
