Riva Rivamare is Equal Parts Style and Substance [w/ Video]
The boats made by Riva are irrefutable proof that Italian speed and style is not the exclusive domain of the nation’s land-bound motor vehicles. That tempting trend continues with the Rivamare, a sleek speedboat that measures just an inch under 39 feet long, but packs a whole lot of substance into that handsome hull.
The top deck provides comfy lounge seating and a high tech bridge that blends a traditional helm/wheel with a joystick control for more precise maneuvering when docking and navigating tight spaces. At the stern, a hatch swings down to create a sweet “beach” area. Inside, a beautifully finished cabin incorporates a kitchen, lavatory, shower, and lounge that converts to a double bed, while a pair of Volvo Penta D6 400 engines punching out 1,750 horsepower each provide the muscle to push the Riva Rivamare to a top speed of 40 knots. No info on pricing yet but, because this is Riva we’re talking about, you’ll get your money’s worth.
