Official RIVA model
This official Riva Super Tritone model boat (1:10 scale) is built by our jewelers using high quality wood (beech wood) and matching parts (chrome brass). Real padding.
In order to obtain a perfectly smooth hull and deck, 10 coats of varnish are applied, interrupted by progressively finer sanding steps. The last phase consists of applying several coats of gloss varnish to create a “mirror effect” characteristic of these boats.
This is the most extraordinary Riva model with its exclusive license.

History of this model:
Built from 1953 to 1966 for the Tritone and from 1960 to 1964 for the Super Tritone. The Super Tritone was equipped with 2 Chris Craft Engine V8 275 CV. Until the arrival of the Aquarama, the Tritone was the main model in the Riva stable, the largest and most expensive boat and the only one to be fitted with two engines. Its size, power and long range (thanks to large fuel tanks) made it an ideal boat for sea cruising and it did much to forge Riva's reputation in the Mediterranean. Developed from the BQ 69 designed in 1950, it received its name in 1953. Her hull design borrowed from the Corsaro, with the addition of a second row of seats in the cockpit, behind which the stern area was fully paneled and used as a sun lounger.
A total of 257 boats were built between 1950 and 1966 and there were three versions in addition to the base model. The Super Tritone was slightly longer with more powerful engines; 21 were built between 1960 and 1963. The Tritone Cadillac, on the other hand, was powered by two 250 hp Cadillac engines; ten were built between 1956 and 1960. Finally, the Tritone Aperto, on which the Aquarama design drew directly, had an open sunbathing area at the stern; 15 were built in the early 1960s
and 22 units as Super Tritone.
