Riva Tritone: In another class
Film star Elizabeth Taylor, the Shah of Iran and Prince Rainier of Monaco — all were to own examples of the most famous powerboat in the world, a Riva. It’s no wonder, then, that the classic wooden boats built on Lake Iseo are as popular as ever.
We found a fine example from Classic Driver dealer ‘Classic Boats Amsterdam’. It’s a Tritone, named after Triton (Tritone in Italian), the son of Poseidon and Aphrodite in Greek mythology.
This example, hull number 220, was built in 1963 and is powered by two, big-block Chrysler V8s.
It’s in the final stages of restoration and priced at 350,000 euros.
This Riva Tritone is available from Classic Boats Amsterdam. You can find out more by visiting the Classic Driver Marketplace
