Aquariva (2000) – Scale Model Motor Boatby Abordage – Museum QualityHistory of the Aquariva The last classic motorboat launched by Riva, the Aquariva sports fantastic lines and fine “Italian Style.” Abordage is the Official Model Maker for Riva.Craftsmanship Our model motorboats are handcrafted by a highly specialized artisans' guild in the Dominican Republic according to the strictest of standards. These artisans are highly trained experts, using computer-aided design to obtain 100% accuracy in replication scale. The motorboats are museum quality, made plank on frame. You will not find a higher quality model Aquariva at this price! The number one goal in building our motorboats is to obtain the highest degree of accuracy that is possible. The detail work on the Aquariva is made to resemble that of the original – right down to the type of materials selected. All of the parts made for the Aquariva are designed specifically for this model – they aren’t substitutes from another motorboat. Careful precision in detail is made even in the lines. Finish The Aquariva is accurately painted with at least two coats of paint. Five coats of lacquer are also applied, and the model is sanded and polished at each stage, giving the work a radiant finish that protects and preserves. Certificate & Plate The Aquariva comes with a certificate authenticating the master who made it; it's country of origin, how the motorboat was made, and more. It also comes with a gold colored plate that displays its name and year. Display Case Looking for a handsome way to display and protect your model motorboat? Consider a display case to accompany your order. We sell finely crafted display cases and can help you select one that will fit the Aquariva perfectly. See the “Display Cases” category for more information. Packaging and Shipping Our museum quality motorboats normally ship within 7-10 business days. They are carefully packaged in crates or very strong boxes, supported with forms to insure their protection during shipping. They are mailed via Fed Ex Air to further protect them and for expedient delivery. Instructions on how to unpackage the motorboat are found after opening the first box.
