relate that one day, just after the second world war, he was
taking out for a walk in the center of Milan, when he
noticed a cinema hall ,Cinema Ariston.
Dedicated to the most exacting customers, the Riva Ariston
uses the formula of the Riva Corsaro but bigger: the boat is
6.52 m long and sits 6 passengers on two large benches.
In the beginning, the Riva Ariston was powered by a 185
horse 8V Chris Craft engine. Later it was powered by a 220
horse, then by a 290 horse power engine that allowed it to
reach the speed of 70km/h.
The pure lines of the boat had evolved to reach its
equilibrium in the Super Edition built in 1968. With a 350
horse Riva power engine its speed was more than 80km/h.
The functional capote gives the boat the classic elegance
typical of Riva Style. Without question - Riva of Italy -
which traces its beginnings to a mid-19th century carpenter
shop - is the world leader in producing elegant, luxury
The production of the Riva Ariston started in 1950 and
finished in 1976. With 1012 constructed, it is the boat that
the Riva Shipyard constructed for the longest time.
