Rescue at Sea

 

It’s that age old story of man creates a world renowned luxury sports car. Man commissions a speedboat to include said sports car engines making it a global one-of-a-kind personal watercraft. Man passes away. Boat is subsequently stashed away for years out of view with little notice or attention. Years later, boat is discovered and restored to its original condition. We’ve all heard this scenario before, correct? Of course we haven’t.

The man was Lamborghini founder Ferruccio Lamborghini.

The boat is a unique Aquarama built by Italian firm Riva over 45 years ago.

When a Riva collector from the Netherlands ultimately tracked down this floating jewel, they bought it and immediately hired Riva-World to restore it. The project would take three years to complete because of the detail involved in perfectly recreating it to the form that the late Lamborghini originally acquired it.
