Mystery Launch 16-08-2019

Another mystery launch photo from Andy Donovan’s boat broking days – that distinctive stern hopeful will ring a bell with one of the woodys.

Marco Scuderi and his yard – MCN Shipwrights – are making noises in the world of classic boating with a double page feature in the August 2019 edition of UK Classic Boating magazine.
Well done Marco. And just by coincidence I’m at the yard later today to check out the 1969 Riva Superaquarama restoration, before it heads back to its owner across the Tasman. Twin 454 V8’s so cool zoom zoom  photos soon 😉

  1. Like Nathan I have absolutely no idea who she is, but am intrigued by the “tumble home” at the front end. Looks like a late 1930–40’s for build date & almost certainly a home build with a hard chine.

    Can hardly wait to see the ‘Riva’ they are absolutely FABULOUS!

    WW featured one in 2013, a ‘Riva Tritone’ . Her name is ‘LOLA’, fitted with 2 large Crusader V8s (Crusaders were the engines they usually fitted at that time). Take a look back & if you like me, admire these beautiful boats. She lives in her own air conditioned shed, on the waters edge of the sounds in the South Island. — KEN R (edited by Alan H)
