Riva ownerMeet one of the original Riva owners, he purchased a 1951 Riva in Sausalito in 1975 for $5,000. “Another guy offered me $10,000 for it in the parking lot that day, I got a heck of a deal”. Many of these classic boats sell for up to $200,000 today.

Maintenance is the biggest issue. These mahogany and teak decks take a beating in the sun, and applying varnish and upkeep is a constant chore.
