Rivanotes is not just a notebook, it is also a chronicle in printed form of the most enthralling yachting story of the past 100 years. Inside are sketches of the legendary mahogany and fibreglass boats and components from Riva. When you look at the 20 freehand drawings, you’ll get a real sense of the vibrant creative verve of the designers who first sketched the boats that would go on to achieve wordwide fame. From Giorgio Barilani, who gave shape and substance to the ideas of Carlo Riva, to Mauro Micheli, who since 1997 has designed the models that have grown the Brand’s prestige. The jewel in the crown is the original sketch of the ‘Bridge’, the long-standing headquarters of Riva in Sarnico. Overlooking Lake Iseo, this is where the past, present and future blend to celebrate the legend that is Riva. Rivanotes comes in Aquamarine-coloured mambo, easy to wash and resistant to sunlight (the same material used for Riva exterior upholstery). On the spine of the diary is a steel pen with the Riva logo, and the clasp takes the form of a mooring bollard. As well as adding another touch of class, a small aquamarine-coloured rubber ring prevents slipping on sloped surfaces or when on the move.
