The boat, the 28th of just 30 built is, as its name suggests, 32-foot in length and presented in as good as new condition. Its sleeping cabin and water closet have never been used and it has been captained for just 78 hours. Capable of speeds of up to 62 miles per hour, its auctioneer describes it as “a unique and very exotic addition to any dock”.

 

Offered without reserve, the rather fetching red Riva has a pre-sale estimate of £142,000 to £174,000 ($201,000 to $246,000 or €180,000 to €220,000).

 

Update: 15th May 2016: Sold for a far lower sum than the lower estimate for just £63,600 ($91,300 or €80,640).

    1. With reference to the cabin, they mean”used overnight”. Actually it has seen 78 hours of day time extra marital activity! Which as it involved Italians, probably represented 77 hours of boasting and 1 hour of actual action!

      This is just a cynical “branding”exercise. The real Ferrari engined race boats of the 1950’s were far more interesting. Achille Castoldi’s famous Formula 1 v12 Ferrari broke the world speed record for a 800kg boat in 1953 at 164.7kms. He was allowed an engine for his boat by Enzo because he had successfully hidden some pre war Alfa racing cars from the Germans in the war. Nothing new under the sun.
