Riva Aquarama is still the symbol of luxury in nautic world.
The most famous Carlo Riva’s designs, the Aquarama was become, over time, more than just a boat. The undisputed flagship of the range, it is celebrated as a nautical legend in its own right, a superlative in beauty, craftsmanship and performance that has rarely been surpassed both on and off the water. Its evocative name perhaps assured its mythical status, and is derived in part from the widescreen Cinerama movie format, popular in the early 1960 s, which is echoed by the boat’s wide windshield.
In origin, the Aquarama was a direct descendant of the Tritone, upon whose hull it was based. First built in 1962, it incorporated the open sunbathing area of the Tritone Aperto with several new features, including separate front seats and a central non-slip gangway which allowed easier access to the water at the back. Like the Tritone it was always a twin-engine boat, although the units fitted varied widely, from 185 hp each to 350 hp in the Aquarama Special.
In total 769 boats were built over the course of the Aquarama’s long production run, which only came to an end in 1996. This included 203 Super Aquaramas (built 1963-1971), seven Aquarama Lungo (1972 only, and the longest at 8.7 metres), and 278 Aquarama Special (1972-1996).
