Even the patrol boats are cool
I know common sense would dictate the fact that there are other boats on Lake Como other than Riva’s. Just like the USA isnt full of cowboys and Indians. But we have been here two days and yet to see one Riva. Which is okay because the entire area is drop dead amazing. So we thought we would show our fellow citizens of Woodyboaterville, the other brands on the lake.
Its an Alluminio Boat
Now of course we have no idea what they are, so we get to make them up. Maybe soon once I have spent a couple more days here, I will know the difference. Its like a whole new world thats opened up for for pea brain!
A Plastica Boat
Aliscafo Boat and is cool as hell
Taxis and a very cool vintage ferry boat
This was very fast and official looking
This is the AMC Gremlin of boats
A Prerestorero Boat?
One slick tour boat
Old guy and his fishing boat
Another shot of that old ferry tour boat
Its a Como and Going Boat
That top is a very traditional top on the lake. We also saw this sort of canopy top on old boats in Venice
One very snazzy taxi boat, not sure what that leather strap is for? Is that security? there is a ton of big money on this lake for sure.
You might wonder how we were out on the lake shooting. We rented a nice boat for 3 hrs and had some fun. What a great bunch of guys at Nautica Boats2Rent right in Varenna. Very easy and very helpful.
Here is the boat being delivered to us at the dock
We drove to lunch on a little island and parked next to this very nice taxi
The drivers side of the taxi
I wish i knew the brand of this boat, very cool!
Okay I did see a Riva, who knew they were a Gelateria store?
mmmm, I like Riva with the double planked cone
I recall the Enterprise being larger. And in NYC . But, here on Lake Como its a fishing boat.
While eating lunch this was just a bit of boat magic.
Now, I am not sure what brand boat this is, I should know because its stunning. And i promise to find out. But, here it is in all its glory. Yup! look closer. THE CELL PHONE AGAIN!
I mean you are on this insane cool boat, and your checking your phone?
Thats more like it. Stay tuned, we are here for two more glorious days.
