Roberto Franzoni authored a great boat about Riva; the family, the shipyard, and the boats as well as the yachts. Carlo then said that his stainless steel metal came from Sweden, his windshield glass from Belgium, the wood screws from England, the boats various textiles from Italy, and his boat’s engines from the United States.
Interestingly, a twin engine wood Riva boat took 36 days to make while a single screw inboard Riva took only half as long at that time.
He and his customers preferred, based on purchase patterns, Chevy engines five to one over the 290 Horsepower 413 Chrysler engines. The bottom shape was changed from the prototype model for all boats, starting with boat 34.
Aquarama Riva model boats came in several hull lengths from 26’ 3’, 27’, 27’ 3”, 27’ 7”, and 27’ 9” but are routinely called as around 28 feet long or almost 29 feet in Length over all (LOA). Riva covers the wood boat era of Riva including the Aquarama, which is to be the featured marque at the Lake Tahoe Antique and Classic Boat Society show this year. Some say that until Carlo Riva, a runabout was called a “Chris Craft” like when cellophane tape was called “Scotch Tape” by many. The boat, the ride, the service, the fellow boat owners all were perceived as the simply the best in the world. Without knowing condition; is the 1959  Century Coronado with a hardtop OK going for its $39,000 as a fair deal today? Newson’s design for the Aquariva vessel is unique in its conception, as well as the materials chosen.
These runabout boats all had a deeper forefoot than the typical Chris Craft of that time, while at the transom, the bottom was all but flat, as was the Chris Craft runabout. This gives a better riding across the water experience at low speeds but these Riva need to get that sharp vee in the bow area out of the part of the hull that is in contact with the water as any speed increases. Over-power a straight shaft inboard and the flat transom stern area give more lift to the transom area of the runabout. 2)      Have power trim on the drive to allow the helmsman to adjust amount of lift at the stern area of the boat.
Wood Rivas seem to seabuddy to reflect Italian passion, smart boat building, and a vision about what a good boat should be. This classic is a twin engine boat that had a speed “approaching 55 mph or 90 kmh” according to the sales information. His book called Riva was published in Italy in 1986 and is an out-of-print collector type book.


In that interview, he related how he used nine coats of varnish; four sprayed, and five brushed on and hand rubbed.
By hull #178, built around 1967, the bottom shape was changed again to give a better ride at cruising speeds. Figure on from about 370 total horsepower on the low side to most having about 640 total Horsepower with one boat showing as having 800 combined horsepower.
Brigitte Bardot is shown behind the wheel of one of the several Riva runabouts that she owned. Or Ted Kennedy (and friend) photographed with his swim suit down around his ankles before he got past middle age. A wood-like, textile-based laminate (phenolic composite) was used for the deck area and instrument panel. Simple, balance and power the runabout such that the vee splits the waves and wakes at low speeds and weight balance, adjust the shaft down angle, and power to make the boat ride bow proud, or bow high, at speed.
More lift from the almost flat bottom stern and down angle of the shaft causes the runabout bow to want to submarine and bow steer. The runabout was set-up to perform well for an expected top speed: put in a souped up engine and that set-up will not perform well at the new top speed. This boat number 774 was presented as the last Riva wood Aquarama Special as sold by Cantieri Riva as they made their final step in boat building into fiberglass boats from wood hulls. She is powered by her original big block 454 Chevy engines made to Riva specs by Crusader engines in the USA. The original owners and sellers of this boat at this $975,000 sale price, the founding family of Sony Electronics, said it came with full documentation paperwork to support the boat’s history.
He went on to say that all Riva wood boats were tested in the water for at least sixty hours before it was sold.
The first three wood boats were carvel planked, but then laminated hull sides were used from all the hulls from then on. By 1969, the hull shape above the waterline, the stem, and a different bow cap were instituted. All the boats are twin engine boats and feature wood framing as well as planking of the hull and deck of these classics. The book also covers the Ariston and Super Ariston and why they are different from each other. His boats were the ones to successfully challenge “Chris Craft” as the boat to lust after when the most “carefree” era came forth to the world.


Peter Sellers is shown behind the helm of a Riva and Leslie Caron was photographed peaking out from inside a Riva bow cuddy cabin. This material was developed in the first half of the 20th century, and was a precursor to fibreglass. Look for more info and photos from this RIVA book… and seabuddy thanks them for their photos.
Miss Taylor was married eight times (twice to Richard Burton), suffered from over 70 illnesses.
These laminated boat construction pieces proved to make for a better looking boat, especially as the classic boat ages.
While it has copy in English the text is international as other languages are also included.
No reserve brings up pricing on some items and brings down others if there is only one bidder. While having an ostensibly organic feel and aesthetic, it is significantly more durable than wood. If a wave or wake at an angle catches the vee up front, that area can become a larger “rudder” than the boat’s metal rudder and the runabout will “bow steer” and the helmsman can not correct or over-come this redirection by the smaller area metal rudder that is attached to the steering wheel. You can see from the Mecum Auction supplied photos that the boat was properly stored, serviced, and maintained over her lifetime. To give the exterior a more high tech look, Newson utilized anodized aluminium, a material not generally associated with boats; this lightweight material is used in lieu of stainless steel and chrome brass, yet remains contextual among Riva’s glamour and classical design.
Heads of State, royal families, Saudi Kings and others also are shown in their connection with Riva. The Shah of Iran had his Riva air freighted to his local waters from the factory in the Lake country of Northern Italy.. And I do not have the coin in my jeans for a top shelf boat that is a classic wood Riva power boat. The Riva Aquarama  and Riva Super Aquamara captured the LUST of boaters and landlubbers alike. A limited production boat that stands close inspect up to the standard of a custom boat is a show stopper.
