Classic Riva speedboats have been the epitome of luxurious Italian Riviera style since the 1950s, with famous owners including Feruccio Lamborghini, Prince Ranier of Monaco, Sean Connery and Brigitte Bardot.
Now the legendary boatbuilder has come out with a new vintage-inspired vessel, the Rivamare, inspired by another Italian icon, the sports car.
Measuring 39 feet long and 11.6 feet at its widest, the Riva Rivamare is powered by a pair of 400 hp Volvo Penta D6 400 engines capable of propelling the craft to a cruising speed of 31 knots and a top speed of 40 knots, according to Uncrate.
The cockpit situated on the mahogany paneled deck features an innovative control system with joystick and docking mode functions.
A rear hatch features mahogany steps that extend to form a “beach” area with direct water access for swimming or using smaller pleasure craft.
Belowdecks you’ll find a gallery kitchen, bathroom with glass shower, and living area that converts into a double bed for sleeping should you decide to make a night of it.
Which seems like a guarantee for whoever is piloting this jaw-dropping beauty.
