Looks like it may be an Abbate, Chiavari or Timosi rather than a Riva boat.

Do you have any other photos of the rear side of the dashboard and the engine when it was installed?

Ok when I look at the steering wheel (looks the same as my one) and the instrumentcockpit, this Boat look like a Taroni Mistral from Sarnico. Should be length around 6m and wide 2m.

You will not find much Informations in Internet. I looked in internet for the last 2 years and so far i know there are 3 boats left on teh marked. In a view weeks I will starting paintjob with stoppani paint. I made a lot woodwork again like you. I changed a bit on the instrument part so it looks like riva super florida now. I did get in Contact with the company in Italy but he could not gave me old drawings or pictures because they all been robbed out years ago. May you can post some more Photos ?

not took much photos latley will take a few tomorrow, were ready to start varnishing tomorrow, were using epifanes for the first 7-8 coats then using stoppani. been told that that leaves a good deep glossy shine.
do you have any pictures of yours would be nice to see another.

a view more woodwork may be 2-3 days and I am nearly ready for starting paint Job like you. But I only will use Stoppani.I use mogana pasta so bring the color. The 8 Layer clear varnish and add two layer with UV resistant clear valish. Please excuse my english. It's not perfect. The engine will be a V8 Flagship 240 HP. I did come with the boat. the preowner change the propshaft already and restaurated the bottom of the boat.

Great discussion and thanks for the pictures.

It's very interesting for us in the States to see the different kinds of European boats. I like the style.

Hi Don, thank you. I have seen that you are in more other forum and you are a profesional in Woodworking. Rearly nice work by the way. Great job!
I also like Crist Craft and by the side I also have a "Xylon Tümmler 103" from 1965 which will be restored after finishing the Taroni Boat. Xylon looks nearly the same as Crist Craft Constellation.

Andy;

Thanks.

For the record I am not a professional woodworker. I had all the woodwork on my Ariston done in California by Rudy at Northwest Classic Boats. I think they do the best work in North America for Riva's. I like to do all the other stuff such as engines, electrical and interior.

www.northwestclassicboats.com

I work for a large Biotech company as the day job.

I'm happy you found the forum and please spread the word.

Best

Ciao

Hi Bri, you shure you want to have the same one in new? I would use Volvo Penda Shaft seal. But the original one you will ask on

I know that Taroni did buy all parts traight from Riva

I am open if the customer likes to get in contact with me.
