Riva Classic Range
In 1962 the Riva Aquarama was born. The name means 'view of the water'. These are the largest of all the wooden Riva range & are powered by twin v8 engines, the layout comprises of a large seating area amidships with a cuddy under the forward deck and sun bathing area towards the stern.
The Riva Ariston was produced between 1950-1973. Perhaps the prettiest of all the classic wooden Rivas, with its tapering aft deck and curvaceous hull design. The seating area comprises of a double row of seats with the option to clip a sunbathing cushion over the aft deck .
Designed in 1968 and named after the Mexico Olympics which took place in the same year. The Riva Olympic features a forward seat with sunbathing area to the stern which can be converted to create a seperate stern seat if desired. It was the last of the single engined wooden Rivas produced.
The Riva Florida is a very attractive and practical boat. Produced between 1952-1967, the cockpit layout is similar to that of the Riva Olympic, with the exception of a bridging deck on the Florida between the back of the front seat and the sunbathing/seating area at the stern.
In 1966 the Riva Junior was born, with its open cockpit and walk around central engine case it was the ideal ski boat, and due to its size the Junior often served as a tender to large motor yachts
