RIVA AQUARAMA – ITALIAN RUNABOUT 1970
The Riva Aquarama is a luxury wooden runabout built by Italian yacht builder Riva. 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 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.
The Riva Aquarama kit includes:
Laser cut Wooden Hull, Double Planking, Similar Leather Seats, Brass Chromed Parts, Detailed Interiors, Plans and Instructions.
For R/C operation a motor & transmission kit can be purchased separately, which includes two top quality electric motors, electronic speed controller, all parts required to change your Riva Aquarama static kit into a full working model.
