The Best of the Best 2003: Speedboats - Riva Rivarama

  • Fluto Shinzawa

Available in a choice of seven different colors, the 44-foot Riva Rivarama is certain to turn heads in a sea of ubiquitous white vessels. While not brash like its go-fast counterparts, the Rivarama, which Ferretti says is under $1 million, makes its own statement with color schemes that range from shades of green and charcoal to a lustrous dark blue Kevlar hull topped with a deep mahogany teak deck.

Twin 700-hp diesels power the 44-footer to speeds topping 45 mph. Belowdecks, the plush interior includes a bed, couches, and an entertainment center.
