Giulietta Boat on ebay

Check out the ebay.it listing at: Motoscafo Aeromere Alfa Romeo Giulietta Plein Air 1959 tipo Riva | eBay

If they'll throw in the tow vehicle, I may have to bid on this thing!

According to the auction text, the boat has now a 1600 engine but the original Giulietta 1300 engine is also available.

Wow! That is cool beyond words! If I had any chance of being able to afford this Alfa, I would be there. I love vintage boats [ I have and enjoy a 1975 Steury with original 50hp Johnson], and would be seriously honored to be the custodian and Captain of this fine Craft,,,

Getting it here from Italy would be interesting. Don't envy that drive. This IS the boat for the Alfa owner that thought they had seen them all. Very nice.

Yea, it's a nautical "abnormale".

The instrument panel and motor are 750 Berlina (750C), 55Hp in standard tune, this would have been the cheapest option available at the time. The 1600 motor must be a *noticeable* improvement on the original 1300.... Steering wheel is standard 750 / 101 item.

The blue paint on the motors is a common thing in nautical circles as it makes it much easier to see oil leaks in a confined engine bay.

Agree on the "hole-in-the-water-that-you-throw-money-into", but this would be a very cool boat to own along with the trailer & tow car !!

I was raised on sailboats and trained from Day One to hate motorboats, but jeez this is cool, especially the use of so many interior/dash pieces in the cockpit. Was it common on these Alfa-engined boats to use the Giulietta instrument panel, steering wheel, etc.?
What kind of drive would this have to the prop?

Since the motor is facing aft and upward, there is likely a Vee drive to the propshaft.

This would look great in the slip at my villa on Lake Como, then after my morning espresso I could just motor over to the Villa D'Este Concorso.....
I should have tried harder in school.

Having had the privilege and honor of working on the repair and restoration of a few Italian Riva power boats during a past life (in the 80's), it is safe to say that in my humble opinion these are undoubtedly the finest powered water craft ever designed and built by mortals.

This one is also the 1st example I have ever seen with the Alfa Romeo powerplant, most having Chrysler 392 hemis.
(and I agree with NMMilano, I should have studied smarter)

Get out there and DRIVE !

Since you brought this up (and I can't read Italian), can you tell if this example truly is (or is being represented as) a boat manufactured by Riva?

I'm ignorant of the exact usage potential of the term "tipo" in Italian. Seeing all the trim pieces and names (none of which is "Riva"), I have my doubts. Overall I think it might look a bit crude (sorry) for one of theirs.

Not that I'm particularly boat-savvy - though I've enjoyed a few wooden boat shows (mainly Chris-Crafts and Garwoods) at Tahoe and elsewhere.

And not that I wouldn't still love to have it - esp. with that tow vehicle!

"Tipo Riva" means "Style Riva", so it seems a Riva but isn't a Riva, nor is a replica. The towing car and the trailer are not included in the price.

20.000 EUR = 26748 USD (today)
