Riva is a prestigious manufacturer of runabout motor boats, founded in the early 1950’s by the Italian manufacturer Carlo Riva.
Symbol of luxury and refinement, these boats are inspired by Chris-Craft runabout boats, seen on the American Lakes or racing boats in wood such as the legendary Ferrari Arno XI.
Riva built his last wooden runabout boat in 1996.
