Broker's Comments

She has been subject to a comprehensive restoration. She has a riva engine (fully serviced) and only the cushion would need to be restored (even if they are in a correct condition), in order to have a perfect masterpiece.

In the decade of the Italian industrial revolution, dominated by the myth of speed and racing cars, l’Ingegnere, as Carlo Riva is called, sensed the importance of this phenomenon and created a series of wooden yachts characterized by unique, unmistakable design features. One of them was the Ariston, of which Carlo Riva says it was “designed with love, born pure and strong like a pedigree horse. Unforgettable! It was my Lord of the Sea”.
