1959 RIVA 19' SUPER FLORIDA - HULL 403 This highly collectible classic luxury Italian boat is freshly refinished and ready for the next owner. Current owner has moved to the coast and can't bear to put her into salt water so he is reluctantly putting her up for sale. Previous owners had restored the boat to Riva specs and the original Chris Craft Marine Flathead 6 engine was re-built by well known VAN NESS Engineering in NJ with attention to detail including using the original style Italian Hose Clamps and hoses to retain it's stock appearance. It was bored out to yield 201 HP and has more torque than the 283 V8's that replaced it the following year. Current owner has upgraded it to Electronic Ignition with excellent results. All wiring was identified as correct and original and in good condition. All running gear was inspected and upgraded/repaired where needed. All hardware on the boat is original and correct and includes the optional Surrey/Bimini style Top.
In 2007 she won Best of Show at the famed Keels & Wheels show in Texas and a 1st Place in class at the Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance Classic Boat show. Since 2009 she has been meticulously maintained by our BOATHOUSE BAY CLASSICS restoration division. She comes with a newer deluxe Tandem Axle Trailer with brakes & swing tongue. Also included are two sets of Lounge Pads (one for show) and a custom fitted Travel and Storage cover.
