History Notes

The length and width of the hull, well balanced with the weight of 1500 kg, allows a comfortable and at the same time fast navigation. For this reason, the hull 764 has a lower angle which passes to 122 °. This modification let the boat to achieve a level of navigation very similar to the Aquarama, the most successful boat of the entire Riva wooden range. In fact, there are many improvements that were first on the Aquarama and subsequently brought to the third series of Ariston, today considered the best for navigation and aesthetics by Riva lovers.
