A little history:
The name Riva is synonymous with elegance, class, and premier European craftsmanship. Riva has been one of the world’s leading producers in high quality speed boats since the 1950s. The Riva name dates back through the 1840s, where Pietro Riva began to fashion boats in a small northern Italian town called Sarnico. Pietro’s grandson, Carlo, would be the figurehead of the Riva Speed Boating legend. In the 1950s, Carlo Riva began to produce elegant wooden speed boats of unquestionably superior style and quality. The Riva Tritone is a very influential speedboat of the Riva line. A post-war model, the Tritone was heavily produced for years. Equipped with two engines and a perfect size for sea-cruising, the Tritone was the model that gave birth to the illustrious Aquarama.
