1971 Riva Super Aquarama

Price available upon request.

1971 Riva Super Aquarama. This is one of last three Super Aquaramas constructed while Ing. Carlo Riva was in command of the Shipyard. Sold originally to an Italian, she eventually found her way to Los Angeles California where she was disassembled for refinishing in 1981. S AQ 474 remained in indoor storage, dismantled, through 1996. She was then purchased by a pair of ambitious Swedish marine engineers who fastidiously reassembled her with the information and materials available at that time. That restoration included refinishing, re-chrome plating of every component, re-upholstery, bottom service, and installation of a new pair of new 454 CID Crusader Marine engines. After completion of their refurbishing in 1998, they ran the boat only for sea trials and then put her into indoor storage. The boat was sold, in 2002, to a Client who has used the boat on Lake Tahoe ever since. All in all, S AQ 474, although built in 1971, has been in storage for 20 years, or for nearly half of it life!

In 2013/4 S AQ 464 received a complete restoration at our facility. This included a new bottom and required related components, complete strip & refinish, and upholstery. Correct Riva materials were used throughout the entire process.  We also installed a modern stereo w/MP3 compatibility, concealed within the cabin.

At the 2014 Tahoe Concourse d’Elegance, Teresa won 1st Place in Class, and Best Riva in Show.

Today, S AQ 474 is as close to perfection as possible, and now available for immediate use.

Of course, TERESA has the Riva standard equipment; chrome water ski pole, bathing ladder, sun cushions, cabin cushions, Riva tool kit, Riva boat hook, stern flag pole w/flag, etc. Also included is a complete Riva sun canopy w/poles, mooring cover, and a custom tandem axle trailer.
