Classic Riva at London Design Fair
Riva to be displayed at Masterpiece art and design fair 27th June
Surrounded by beautiful and valuable works of art and design, this beautiful 1958 Riva Tritone will be displayed at this year's London Masterpiece fair held in a few days time. Riva dealer Ventura said, of all the classic Rivas, the Tritone is perhaps the one most associated with the glamour of La Dolce Vita on the Riviera in the 1950s and ’60s. A Royal favourite, Tritone #62 was owned by Prince Rainer and Princess Grace of Monaco. The Tritone marked the birth of the golden age of the twin-engined wooden Rivas. This particular example, on show and for sale at Masterpiece, is hull #86 which is powered by two 225hp Chrysler V8 engines, giving it a top speed of 40mph. Both boat and engines were restored over a period of 4 years from 2012-2016.
The Masterpiece art and design fair takes place from 27 June to 3 July in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea beside Chelsea Bridge. The Riva Tritone will be exhibited by Ventura on Stand A42, with an asking price of £325,000.
