The Ariston may not be Riva's most famous model—that distinction goes to the legendary Aquarama—but many aficionados agree that the Ariston is the closest to perfection with its impeccable lines, ideal proportions, and no aft sunbed to interrupt the sumptuous curves of the exquisite mahogany deck.
Famous Ariston owners include Prince Rainier III of Monaco and actress Anita Ekberg. This beautifully restored, ‘60s-era speedboat is, as the name suggests, the best; a sound investment and a pleasure to experience.
When production ceased in 1974, a quarter century after the model was first conceived, over 1,000 boats had been built. Through the years, many modifications were made, not least of which was the length. This model No.836 from 1968 is one of the longest at 6.8 meters and one of the fastest with a 220 Crusader Riva engine.
Lovingly and skillfully restored by RAM—the official Riva maintenance workshop in Sarnico—every part of this powerful machine is as good as new, in full working order. The latest in nautical technology and engineering meets beautifully refurbished, vintage Cote d’Azur glamour!
