1958 RIVA TRITONE VIA SPEEDBOAT

In early 1958, Carlo Riva received a special order for a pair of Tritones from a wealthy Milanese textile industrialist, Mr Gianoglio. A close relative of H.S.H. Prince Rainier III, the reigning prince of Monaco, Mr. Gianoglio wished to bestow the prince with a Tritone, as a show of his admiration and gratitude. Thus, hull no. 62, Via, was born.

Via, adorned with red and white stripes, in the livery of the Principality, was powered by two Chris-Craft MCL, 5.5-litre, six-cylinder engines, each capable of 175 hp at 3,400 rpm and both equipped with the automatic diverter dubbed the ‘Chris-O-Matic’, which was launched at a time when the pushbutton automatic transmission fascinated the American auto industry.
