Italian boat brand Riva celebrates its 60th birthday of boating excellence with stunning coffee table book Riva Aquarama. “The Riva icon enjoyed a mythical status and was beloved by movie stars, heads of state and royalty—everyone from Brigitte Bardot, Elizabeth Taylor, Gunter Sachs and the royal family of Monaco”. Dreamed up by the legendary Carlo Riva, it is estimated by Riva experts that only around 650 are still in existence, from the 760 completed Aquaramas made in the Sarnico shipyard.
“There are no limits to the beauty of the Aquarama, how perfect it looks and how timeless. It was an instant classic. You could have an eighty-meter yacht, but people will always look at the Aquarama first.” – Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group
Edited by Assouline and penned by Michael Verdon, Riva Aquarama coffee table book features more than 200 pages and over 200 illustrations.
