1965 Riva Super Ariston 22.5' - with original twin Riva-Chrysler 413 cubic inch, V-8 "Golden Lion" dual quad twin carburetor, gasoline engine.    

This 1965 Riva Super Ariston that has just come available. It is a freshwater boat restored in 1994 by a top Riva restorer in Italy. It received a new bottom, rebuilt original engine, new upholstery, new rubber, new epoxy varnish, and new chrome plating being done at that time.  This is an estate sale and the family has owned the boat for the past 18 years.  It currently shows low hours of 695 since new.

This is the BIG Ariston, it has the original Riva-Chrysler 413 cubic inch “Golden Lion” engine and has the factory “dual quad”, twin four-barrel carburetor set up, this was the high performance Ariston of the day with the larger hull and less than 9% of total Ariston production were “Super” models so they are highly collectable. 

This Super Ariston comes complete with Riva Searchlight, Riva boat cover and support polls, anchor, ski tow pole, flag staff, boat hook, mahogany tool box, convertible top, Riva siren and automatic bilge pump.

This boat is not perfect, it needs a thorough cleaning from storage and would benefit from having the varnish freshened up a bit.  It is large enough to handle larger bodies of water yet small enough to easily manage, store and tow, etc.

I am sorry this boat has SOLD!

Please see the photos below taken in October 2014 in storage prior to any cleaning or detailing.
