L'Oursin - an exciting Riva Junior


L'Oursin is a classic Riva Junior, the epitome of Italian craftsmanship and timeless design. Boasting the original turquoise upholstery and fittings, this beauty retains its authentic charm that has been carefully preserved since it first graced the waters. With a striking white-painted hull that sets it apart from the varnished mahogany typically found on Riva models, L'Oursin stands out with its unique elegance.

Originally launched as part of the new wave of luxury in the summer of '66, this Riva Junior— number 133 out of a limited run of 609 — represents a blend of history and prestige. Imported from France by its current owner, it comes complete with a full-length cover, ensuring ease of storage.

Powered by a robust Marine Engine RIVA, an 8-cylinder GM3849852 with "velvet drive," L'Oursin promises a smooth and powerful performance. Measuring 5.58 meters in length and 2.17 meters in width, with a manageable weight of 1000 kg, it is as much a pleasure to pilot as it is to behold.

Presented on a trailer with a heavy-duty cover, this vessel is ready for its new owner to be transported wherever they see fit. Priced at £45k, now owning a piece of Riva's legacy is within reach, offering an accessible entry point into the world of Riva without the steep investment of an Aquarama, which could cost upwards of £200k.

Seize the opportunity to become the custodian of a piece of nautical history with L'Oursin—Riva Junior No133. Perfect for the connoisseur or the enthusiast looking to enter the world of classic boating with style. L'Oursin will be at our boat store for viewing from mid April 2024.
