Neat boat!! I knew it for many years @ Lake Tahoe when it was called "Water Bug", a reference to the owners other passion, collecting and racing Bugatti's.

This shows that the true Riva aficionado prefers the Tritone styling to the AQ :?

Interesting that the ad does not show the rear deck - the single most distinguishing feature of the boat! ??

The auction resulted in a bid of $575,000 and the guy did not take it....wow.

Don't know if people know it yet but there is going to be another auction coming up in August. No less than five historic boats are on the block.
