This Gorgeously Retro Riva x Ferrari Speedboat Is For Sale
Meet the Ferrari of speedboats.
Ferrari’s signature design looks as perfectly applied to this extraordinarily rare Riva speedboat as it does on the Prancing Horse marque’s many enviable road cars.
In fact, the 1990 Riva Ferrari 32’s side strakes and Rossa Corsa colors specifically reference the Testarossa, the iconic, flat-12-powered 80s exotic made famous in a “cocaine white” appointment by Miami Vice.
RM Sotheby’s, the seller of the vessel, notes that the interior also contains parallels to Ferrari’s automobile instrumentation, including a leather-clad three-spoke steering wheel, black dashboard, and high-visibility gauges—all of which are waterproof.
Beneath the deck within the 32-foot hull is a sleeping berth for two, a full stereo system with era-appropriate radio and CD functions, and a panoramic photos displays.
Meanwhile, a pair of Vulcano 400 V8 engines rated for 390 horsepower each (when new) can propel the yacht to 62 mph (54 knots)—fast, but not incredibly so by today’s standards.
The project was born of a collaboration between Riva chairman Gino Gervasoni and founder Enzo Ferrari in the 1980s. Only 40 were made, this being No. 28. RM Sotheby’s puts a presale value on the 1990 Riva Ferrari 32 of $100,000 to $`150,000.
