Description

The Riva Aquarama was designed by Carlo Riva in the 1960s, a luxury wooden runabout built by Italian yacht builder Riva. The Riva is noted as one of the most legendary and famous speedboats out there. Production of it and its derivatives (the Lungo, Super, and Special) ran from 1962 until 1996. The hull was based on the Riva Tritone, an earlier model speedboat by Riva, 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 boating world. The company was founded by Pietro Riva in 1842, and run by Carlo Riva through its 1969 sale to the American Whittaker Corporation.

It is available as a FULLY ASSEMBLED model, ready to be proudly display as a piece of history. SavyBoat master craftsmen handcraft these highly detailed wooden models from scratch using historical photographs, drawings, and original plans. The model Riva Aquarama has been built to scale with high-grade wood such as: western red cedar, rosewood, and mahogany.

They are 100% hand built individually using plank-on-frame construction method and are similar to the building of actual boats. Each Riva Aquarama model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. This is truly a beautiful model of the Riva Aquarama with nature finished so you can see the beauty of the wood grain. There are multiple tones of wood decking on the bow. You can find exquisite details from the leather works to all the realistic gauges. All fittings such as windshield frame, wiper, navigation lights, mirror, flag pole are made of stainless steel. The cockpit has two hand stitched individual leather seats as well as a rear passenger seat. The swimming platform also comes with stainless steel handrails. The model rests on a wooden stand for easy display.
