Auction Block: 1990 Riva Ferrari 32 Speedboat

Mar 14, 2022

Category: Rides

When it comes to roads and raceways, Ferrari is a brand that has traveled them well. Since their beginnings in the 1940s, the Italian manufacturer has risen to the top of the sports car stratosphere with its high-performance stallions that have dominated Formula One racing as well as the garages of enthusiasts. But what about those collectors who want to take their love of the Prancing Horse out on the water?

In the late ‘80s, Ferrari and Italian yacht brand Riva decided to collaborate on the car company’s first non-roadway vehicle, and the 1990 Riva Ferrari 32 was born. Comparative in look to Ferrari’s Testarossa, the 32-foot speedster sports the same delicious rosso corsa coat and side strakes that the ’80s poster car is famous for. This particular Ferrari boat up for auction is number 28 out of 40 that were ever produced.

The interior of the driver’s cabin immediately recalls signature Ferrari characteristics, such as the leather-wrapped, three-spoke steering wheel and the high-visibility gauges, which both look fitting next to the waterproof switchgear. The interior cabin also includes a two-person bed lined in red as well. Since this is a Ferrari after all, the engine itself contains two Vulcano 400 V-8 engines boasting 390hp each, giving the vessel a top speed of 54 knots.

Nothing says power and prestige more than this craft. Easily the most eye-catching speedboat on any waterway, the 1990 Riva Ferrari 32 is unmistakable. It will be sold on March 25th and 26th at RM Sotheby’s nineteenth annual Fort Lauderdale auction in Florida as part of the Rey Collection, but bids can be made on RM Sotheby’s website as well, with a going estimate of anywhere between $100,000 and $150,000.

Purchase: $100,000+
