Ventura to bring Bentley-coloured Riva to London show
Motorboat & Yachting: Ferretti Group dealers Ventura have released details of the Riva model that they will be bringing to the 2016 London Boat Show.
The Ventura stand at the London Boat Show is always very popular, and the Ferretti Group dealer hopes to continue this trend in 2016 with its latest Riva display.
Heading to the Excel Centre for next month’s ten-day event is a unique Riva Aquariva that has been finished in Bentley blue to match the owner’s luxury car.
Built in 2009, but evoking the classic styling that made Riva a worldwide name in the 1950s and 60s, the Bentley-edition Aquariva is up for sale with an asking price of €395,000 (approx £288,000).
Powered by a pair of 380hp Yanmar 6 LY3/UP engines, Bentley Blue is capable of a top speed of 42 knots.
This display will replace the secret auction for a classic Riva that Ventura has run for the past two years.
A spokesperson for Ventura said: “A new Bentley to match this Aquariva is of course readily available should anyone wish to recreate the set, but there’s unlikely ever to be another boat like this!”
Bentley Blue will go on display at the Excel Centre from January 8-17 on Stand A120. Advance tickets to the London Boat Show are on sale now, with prices starting from £10 per adult.
