Yes I know there are other boats out there, but this year is a special year for Riva Boat Owners. 2012 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Riva Aquarama, claimed to be “ The Best Boat Ever Made” by Motor Boat and Yachting magazines.I have to say, it is one amazing boat.. On an entirely different level of Woody Boating. Lets put it this way, I wash my hands BEFORE I get on one.. So how is this all going to be celebrated? Since you just asked. The Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation is recognizing the Riva Aquarama as the Marque Class for the 2012 Concours d’ Elegance. Only 768 Riva Aquaramas were created during the production run of 1962-1996. It is guaranteed that the 2012 Concours will feature the largest assemblage of these rare Rivas ever seen in the United States. The Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance will be followed three weeks later by a sister celebration of Rivas in Sarnico, Italy. Carlo Riva, the creator and builder, celebrates his 90th birthday in 2012 and will receive special honors at these two sister events. There is now a cool website to tell you all the details.
