The Riva Aquariva Super is the spiritual descendant of that most famous of the classic wooden Rivas, the Aquarama. The Aquariva Super captures the essence of the grand tradition of Riva style, trimmed in luxurious leather, with decks of beautiful, gleaming mahogany inlaid with maple.
Tucked away in the cabin below the foredeck of the Aquariva Super are a pair of seats/bunks and a wc. There's also a wet bar in the cockpit, with a sink and hot and cold water. So she has all the facilities you might need for dayboating use. And naturally, as it's a Riva, it's all rather beautifully designed and finished. Very chic!View Gallery
With its U-shaped seating, the cockpit of the Aquariva Super is a delightfully convivial space to spend time with friends and family, whether at rest or under way. The stern of the boat, with its sunbed over the engines and steps down to the bathing platform, is thoughtfully practical as well as being nostalgically reminiscent of the Aquarama Special, the best and final version of the most famous of all the classic Rivas.View Gallery
Handling the Aquariva Super is an absolute dream. Her agility and responsiveness are sublime. The innovative, electronically-controlled, two speed automatic gearboxes maximise the sporting potential of the twin 370hp Yanmar engines, delivering both rapid acceleration and a fast and economical top speed of over 40 knots.
