Riva’s history dates back to 1842, when Pietro Riva began building boats at Sarnico, a small northern Italian town on the shores of Lago d’Iseo.By the 1930s, by which time the business was managed by Pietro’s grandson, Serafino, the company was a leading manufacturer of small racing boats, many of which he raced himself.  At the same time, it began building pleasure boats.In the 1950s Serafino’s son Carlo transformed the business.  After a considerable struggle with his father to realise his ambitions, he created wooden boats of such exceptional style and elegance that they surpassed anything his competitors produced.Through a great deal of hard work, and some very clever marketing, the Riva brand became a worldwide legend courted by screen stars, royalty and businessmen alike.  Famous owners included Brigitte Bardot, pictured here on her Super Florida, Sophia Loren, Peter Sellers and many more besides.
