Riva Tritone (1954) – Scale Model Motor Boat
by Abordage – Museum Quality
History of the Tritone
The TRITONE is a very important motorboat of all Riva production. It came after a post-war model and for years was the biggest model produced. It was equipped with two engines and was the right size to be a sea-cruising motorboat. It is the model that gave birth to the Aquarama.
Through the last half of the 20th century, Riva triumphed at all the boat shows and on all the markets in the world. Kings and emperors, princes and sultans, actors, sportsmen and celebrities, and all the international jet-set that filled the pages of glossy-magazines, headed straight to Riva to choose their boats in the same way as they went to Rolls-Royce or Ferrari for their cars. During this period after WW II, Riva boats became a legend throughout the world, an object of desire and an expression of dreams. Nothing came near to matching the superb quality, style and prestige of the Riva, which was firmly established in a class of its own.
