This is an exclusive edition of the Riva Aquarama Painted. It is made of beautiful 100% handcrafted mahogany & western red cedar. It took hundreds of hours to build and has hundreds of impecably handcrafted details such as shiny chrome and brass fittings, very detailed dashboard and leather seats. The metal steering wheel, horns, rails surrounding the boat and clear windshield with metal frames are pretty impressive.
Layers of vanishes are applied; the hull is beautifully painted a rich redish color. This model was built according to scale through original plans, pictures and drawings. Extensive research thru original plans and pictures makes our model look authentic. Each model goes thru a demanding quality control process before leaving our workshop.
The Riva Aquarama Painted rests on a neat wooden stand. It is shipped fully assembled and ready for display.
This item is just as luxurious as the real boat.
In 1962 Carlo Riva introduced the AQUARAMA series of new fast runabouts. She was powered by a 2-Riva 350 horse power engines and was hailed as the water borne Ferrari by the industry. AQUARAMA is still being built by Riva; over 800 have been delivered. Without question, Riva of Italy, which traces its beginnings to a mid-19th century carpenter shop, is the world leader in producing elegent, luxury wooden runabouts.
