Riva Days Sarnico 2012
Took part in the 2012 Celebration of Carlo Riva 90 years, the Aquarama 50 years and Cantieri Riva 170 years. Over 100 mahogany masterpieces gathered on their birthplace Lago d’Iseo in Sarnico and ours was the only one from Finland – special award presented by the “Ingenieure” Carlo himself.
Earlier in the same summer I made a solo trip of nearly 300 kms from Helsinki to Turku during some beautiful sunny weather between the islands.
In 2013 sold to an important car and boat collector/designer and a good friend of mine.
Retains its original Riva / Chris Craft 283cc V8 engine and Velvet Drive transmission.
Both were rebuilt in 2010/2011 by a specialist widely considered as the best in Finland for American V8 engines.
2012 several layers of varnish and hand polish.
Comes with mooring cover, original wooden cradle and custom built road registered trailer.
