the 1962 Riva Aquarama's legacy
Incredibly limited-edition and built with premium power, the Aquarama's legacy among extravagant sea vessels is well-deserved.
One of the most famous of Carlo Riva's designs, the Aquarama, has become an industry legend over the years with quintessential '60s energy and an elite design. Its uniquely nostalgic wrap-around windshield envelopes a luxury interior, topped with a leather cushioned sundeck.
A polished build using premium materials promises a lifetime of use, not to mention style ― those leather passenger seats only become more beautiful with years of sun-soaked sea exploration.
Ultrarare and yielding only 281 units, the small production carried big impact and high horsepower varying from 185 hp to 400 hp with Riva's 'tuned' engines from Cadillac and Chrysler models. A convertible roof brings the deluxe sportscar experience to the sea.
You can still find the retro yacht with expertly held-up condition for auction, including this listing ― along with other elite sea vessels that Riva added his signature touch to, like the iconic MonteCarlo Offshorer.
