If you love late-1980s/early-1990s style and are in the market for a boat, pay attention, because RM Sotheby’s will soon present the rare opportunity to own this one-of-40 1990 Riva 32 Ferrari boat at its upcoming Monaco sale.
Riva was established on the shores of lake Lake Iseo in Italy in 1842 and is today known for its “unparalleled style and personality,” RM says. In 1990, the boat maker partnered with Ferrari on the Riva Ferrari 32, an officially licensed and expertly styled Ferrari boat that is essentially a water-ready Ferrari 512.
Unfortunately, the Riva 32 isn’t packing a pair of Ferrari V12 engines beneath its bodywork, but instead two 390 horsepower 8.0-liter Vulcano V8 engines. The powerplant will take the 32-foot long vessel to 62 mph and sustain the speed “without missing a beat,” RM says.
This particular Riva 32 Ferrari is the 28th ever built and includes three sets of keys, signed paperwork from Riva and a boat trailer and custom cover. The engines were also recently removed for a complete service and test driven for three hours, receipts for which are include on file.
The Riva Ferrari 32 is expected to fetch about $200,000 when it goes under the gavel in RM Sotheby’s Monaco 2016 sale later this month.
