Riva Boats

Beauty in pure form

Where Rolls Royce is synonymous with the sumptuous luxury of a limousine and Ferrari is the sports car against which all others are measured, so Riva represents beauty and elegance on the waves. If the Ferrari is a prancing horse, and the Lamborghini a raging bull, then the Riva has all the elegance of a dolphin speeding through the water. Sleek and handsome, gorgeously crafted and beautifully finished, Riva boats represent the very best in good taste.

It was in 1842 that Pietro Riva started his boatyard on Lake Iseo.
