Ariston hull # 834

I recently acquired 1968 Ariston # 834 which the production list shows was originally delivered to Munchen Gladbach with the name Viko. Any ideas on how I can find out more about the history of this boat? When it came to the US? Prior owners? Where it was used? I am missing the history from 1968 to 1985.

Luke;

Welcome aboard and congrats on the purchase of your Ariston.

I wish it was easier to find history. I've got a gap from 1959 to 1975 on my Ariston 266.

It is doubtful that the Riva Historical Society has any information but you could try. They will never respond unless you are a member of one of the chapters. Beware it takes a very long time for them to respond and they might not respond but rather post your question in one of the quarterly Viva Riva magazines. The RHS is worth joining for the Viva Riva.

Where are you located?

regards

Don

Don,

Thanks for the advice. I am located in Northern Indiana - Lake Wawasee. Currently having 834 redone by Jeff Funk.
