Description

Launched at Genoa Boat Show in 1966 with the slogan “the teenager’s bomb”, the Riva Junior is a clear example of a versatile runabout with double vocation: familiar and playful. Carlo Riva’s goal is to design a boat that is very easy to drive and maintain allowing its owners (even younger ones) to safely make sea sports such as fishing and water skiing. There are several elements that make this model unique. First of all the sides pianted with orange peel white varnish, typical of American Utility vessels of the ‘60s. Another singular aspect is the stern’s shape that doesn’t look like traditional Riva models. It has been designed with an outward projection to protect passengers from the splashes of the sea. Also the design of bollards is a boat’s peculiarity. Indeed they are ring-shaped to make easier the operations of hauling and launching. Like all Riva runabout, also the Junior has VIP owners such as Brigitte Bardot, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton.
The model in this advertisement has hull number #39 and it was built in 1966. It is also the first of the series equipped with the powerful 180 Hp Riva Crusader. Totally restored by the expert workers of Vidoli’s shipyard in Stresa, this Junior has 0 hours and was launched only during sea test.

 

 

Presentato al Salone di Genova nel 1966 come la “bomba dei giovani”, il Riva Junior costituisce un validissimo esempio di motoscafo versatile in grado di coniugare al meglio l’aspetto familiare a quello ludico legato alla pratica degli sport del mare. L’obiettivo di Carlo Riva è quello di creare una barca facile da condurre e da mantenere così da permettere ai suoi armatori (anche più giovani) di praticare tranquillamente attività come la pesca e lo sci d’acqua assaporando al meglio la vita di mare. Diversi sono gli elementi che rendono unico questo modello a partire dalle murate verniciate a smalto bianco a buccia d’arancia tipiche degli Utility vessel americani degli anni Sessanta. Altro aspetto singolare è la forma della poppa che, anziché essere a botte come i classici runabout Riva, presenta un aggetto verso l’esterno così da proteggere i passeggeri dagli spruzzi del mare nelle andature portanti. Un’ulteriore particolarità sono le bitte che, invece di essere delle tradizionali gallocce, sono a forma di anello per rendere più facili eventuali operazioni di alaggio/varo. Come tutti i motoscafi Riva, pure lo Junior ha annoverato importanti armatori del jet set internazionale tra cui Brigitte Bardot, Liz Taylor e Richard Burton.
L’esemplare in questione è il numero #39 del 1966 ed è il primo della serie a essere motorizzato con il poderoso V8 Riva Crusader da 180 cavalli. Restaurata totalmente grazie le esperte maestranze del Cantiere Vidoli di Stresa, questo Junior ha zero ore ed è stato varato solamente in occasione del collaudo a fine lavori.

Interior disposal

The deck layout includes a single large cockpit protected by bulwarks and refined mahogany handrails fixed on chromed bronze supports and terminals. The engine locker is in the central area of the cockpit and it is also the base for a mattress that connects to the aft seats obtaining a single large sunbathing area. Forward of the engine locker, there are located the seats of pilot and co-pilot. The wheelhouse takes inspiration by car design and it is protected by an enveloping windshield supported by a chromed profile. The vipla upholstery is the typical used by the shipyard and is based on cream tones of the instrument panel and on turquoise of the seats, backrests and sun pad.

 

 

Il layout della coperta prevede un unico grande pozzetto comodamente percorribile in piedi protetti dalle murate e dai raffinati tientibene in mogano fissati su supporti e terminali in bronzo cromato. Il cofano del motore è nella zona centrale del pozzetto e funge da basamento per l’alloggio di un materassino che si collega alle sedute poppiere divenendo così un’unica ampia area prendisole. A proravia del vano motore, oltre un pratico ripiano porta oggetti in legno sono collocate le sedute di pilota e copilota che servono la caratteristica timoneria di derivazione automobilistica protetta da un avvolgente parabrezza su profilo cromato. Eleganti e distintivi del Cantiere, sono gli abbinamenti cromatici delle tappezzerie in vipla incentrate sulle tonalità panna del cruscotto e turchese delle sedute, degli schienali, del burlone e del materassino prendisole.

Instruments

The wheelhouse is equipped with SW/Chris Craft instruments: tachometer/hour counter, temperature gauge, ammeter and fuel gauge.
