The Riva Aquarama is undisputedly the most popular and famous of Carlo Riva's designs. It has become the Flagship of the Riva yacht building company.
The yacht building company Riva launched the runabout speedboat under the Aquarama name in 1962 and quickly became known as the Ferrari of the boating world and production lasted over three decades until the production ended in 1996.
The 8.5m Hull was made from Mahogany hardwood and was varnished so the wood grain was still visable. Powered by twin engines the Riva had 185 to 400 HP to play with depending on the choice of engines and had a cruise speed of up to 45 knots.
