Then followed the Triton, the first twin-engine of the Riva shipyard, the Sebino, which inaugurated mass production and the Florida, an American model particularly popular in those years.
And it’s in November 1962 that came the myth: the presentation of the Riva Aquarama, the motorboat that became the most famous creation of Carlo Riva, and later became the historical icon of the brand. Produced in only 789 pieces worldwide, each numbered, it was distinguished by the typical Riva signed stern, which combines the walled surfaces, the deck and the transom in a single sculptural volume, creating a true work of art. A work of art that everyone admired and desired…
It was the year 1969 when the slogan for the presentation of Riva Aquarama immediately synthesized the soul of this boat: “Sun, sea, joy of life!”. An emotion available just to a few people (considering the cost of 10 million and 800 thousand lire), a dream for everyone.
Even today, these motorboats maintain the charme of that era: the age of paparazzi, divas with scarves, love stories for the magazines, luxury and elegance. And they keep alive the memory of their owners, celebrities such as Anita Ekberg, Brigitte Bardot, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Sophia Loren, King Hussein of Jordan, Gunter Sachs, the Shah of Persia, Prince Ranieri, Tonino Lamborghini up to George Clooney and Elle MacPherson. The Ing. Carlo Riva himself owned a magnificent Aquarama motorboat, the Lipicar, the last one in the line of production.
