Further Comments

This Super Aquarama was the only one custom ordered in 1970 as Riva was not offering "Custom" builds. The original owner had previously purchased new Tritones and really wanted the Tritone aft deck without the sun pad. The original receiving sheet from Monaco Boat Service, the original dealership lists Hull #393 as "speciale, senza fosetta" which is special, without sundeck. Apparently, this buyer had enough "influence" on the company that he received just what he wanted apparently it did come at a substantial price! This boat is truly a "one-of-a-kind" and has had exceptional care through the ownership of four previous boaters. This boat began life in Italy, then went to Belgium, then accross "the pond" to the U.S. where it was kept at Lake Tahoe. Now it is here in Minnesota where a complete restoration was performed from 2005 to 2007. No expense was spared to bring this exceptional boat back to SHOW CONDITION. Included is a complete provenance detailing the ownership since new, information on the individual owners, details supporting the "one off" custom build for the first owner, complete restoration with photos and valuation of this gorgeous Super Aquarama. Features include: twin 427/320 hp rebuilt inboards, cuddy with dual opening overhead hatches, Alpine stereo/cd, spotlight, compass, windshield wipers, flip-up boslter helm seat, in-floor cooler, in-floor fender storage with Riva monogrammed fenders, concealed convertible top, bow and stern poles with flag and burgee, bow anchor locker with anchor, large mahogany storage bin below decks, stern shower/washdown, spare propellers, mahogany boat hook, and full mooring cover.
