Built in 1970, Giulia is a fine example of a Riva Junior. Delivered new to Palermo, Sicily with periods between spent in Venice & on Lake Maggiore, in recent years she has been enjoyed here on the River Thames.
The Junior model was first introduced by Riva in 1966 under the slogan 'the young people's rocket', and certainly her sporty lines and suitability for skiing invoke hot summer days zipping around the Italian lakes. However, with an interior layout designed for ease of access from bow to stern, the Junior model is equally suited to navigating the more tranquil waters of the River Thames in style.
In 2016 Giulia spent several months in our workshops at Hurley undergoing extensive cosmetic restoration. At that time, works carried out included full external scrape and re varnish, repainting throughout, new vinyl floor coverings, new seat coverings and cockpit edge trim, replating of deck/hull fittings where needed, and paint detailing of her engine. Since then regular routine maintenance works have been carried out by ourselves.
Giulia's inventory includes overall blue Riva cover, secondary storage cover, Riva bimini with poles, mahogany bathing ladder, ski pole, 2 x paddles, boathook, flagpole, 1 x Riva pennant, 6 x fenders, and 1 x Riva lifting trace.
She is for sale complete with road trailer.
