The Riva Aquarama is a Luxury Wooden Runabout built by Italian Yachtbuilder Riva. The Boat's Speed, Beauty, and Craftsmanship earned it Praise as the Ferrari of the Boat World.

The Most Famous of Carlo Riva?s Designs, the Aquarama has Become over the Decades a Nautical Legend. Its evocative name, derived in part from the Widescreen Cinerama Movie Format popular in the early 1960s, echoed in its sweeping wrap-around windshield, conjures images from another time."Her Class comes along with such Lightness and Style of a Stradivari."

The Riva Aquarama's 29Feet hull is sheathed in Mahogany and Varnished to Accentuate the Beauty of its Natural wood grain. All versions were twin engined, with top speeds of 45 - 50 Knots. On top of the Engine compartment is a Cushioned sundeck.  A Swim Ladder is mounted in the Stern. A Special Chrome Nickel Bath Procedure assures the Highest Quality ever for LifeTime on this Beauty!

The Aquarama Special Series started with Hull # 503 in 1972, implementing a proposal made by Architect Barilani in 1968 intended to modify the Aquarama's Stern, making it more practical. The hull was lengthened with a more raked Transom that incorporated both the bathing Steps and a Convenient Bathing Platform, anticipating a Solution that is now used Universally. The Mahogany Dashboard was Enriched by eight VDO Instruments, those were redesigned in 1970.

The Aquarama Wheel is a simplified One with a Stainless Steel Plug Engraved with ''Riva'' in the Centre. Lever Switches with a Rubber Cap Replaced the push-pull ones. The Stern Light was changed from # 556. The Cabin Ceiling is fully Upholstered starting from # 593 

The Aquarama is mentioned in Jeremy Clarkson's book I Know You Got Soul. The Boat also featured in the Top Gear 2013 DVD special The Perfect Road Trip in which presenter Jeremy Clarkson, whilst driving the boat in Venice, described it as "The most Beautiful Thing in the World". The Actress Charlize Theron drove an Aquarama Super in 1993 in a Spot for Martini & Rossi. Another Special driven by Xenia Onatopp appears in the movie GoldenEye, and a Special is driven by Vincent Cassel in the Movie Ocean's Twelve. In 2011 the actor Jude Law drove an Aquarama Special for the Dior 2011 Campaign. Owned by Gunther Sachs, Alain Delon, Brigit Bardot, George Clooney, just to name a View.

If there ever was to be a Boat like this. Riva would have to built it.
