1969 Riva Junior

The Riva Junior was produced from 1966 to 1972 with only 626 examples made. When introduced in 1966 it was designed to replace the Riva Florida. Conceived for utility use and ease of maintenance it was typified by a large cockpit that could be walked round the engine cover and driving seat. The sides and transom were normally painted white, but this example has beautiful mahogany hull sides. The design of the transom, also used for the Olympic, had the purpose of protecting the passengers from spray from the stern. The Riva Junior was launched with the slogan, ”It’s the young people’s rocket”. The cockpit is equipped along its sides by a large mahogany grab rail with an elaborate front stay of chrome plated bronze incorporating the engine air intakes. In 1972 the Junior was replaced by the Rudy, of very similar design and slightly longer, but made of fiberglass.

This 1969 Riva Junior received the highest in quality of restoration which was completed in 2018 and was done by Northwest Classic Boats. It took over $175k to complete the restoration with no expense spared including a no soak West System bottom and the upgrade from painted white hull sides to mahogany hull sides. This Riva won a 1st place award at the prestigious Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance boat show after the restoration was completed.

Power comes from a Riva Crusader V8 with 190 hp. The engine was rebuilt in during the restoration in 2018 but the tachometer still shows the original engine hours of 458.0.

The boat comes with Riva fenders, a mahogany fold down swim ladder, a custom full waterline cover, and a 2016 Ryan Trailers dual axle trailer.
