Broker's Comments

This is a stunning example of a Classic wooden motor-launch, beautifully kept and recently re-varnished.
To the casual passer-by she could be mistaken for a Riva Aquarama but without the extra £200,000 price tag!

Equally at home on the Thames at Henley or on Lake Geneva. Similar boats have graced the silver screen in Bond films, and Indiana Jones managed to dispatch a couple making this example just a little bit rarer.

Although happy to meander along at idle she is capable of a claimed top speed approaching 40 M.P.H. Fast enough to startle a few of her modern contemporaries.

The engine has recently been serviced and the hull has been epoxied to just past the waterline to allow her to be used in salt water.
