Probably no one needs to be introduced to the Italian Riva motorboats: for at least seventy years, these boats have been the most elegant form of water transport on the French Riviera or even in the lakes of northern Italy. A Finnish carpenter, Hannu Viren, also tried to revive this style in 1995.

He also built a wonderful looking little boat out of pine and mahogany, which he perfected with five coats of varnish. The metal parts were also forged by the master, because he understood that. With a length of 3.7 meters and a width of 1.25 meters, it has become an ideal boat for two people in the land of a thousand lakes. However, all this would not have been possible without first buying an 80s Kawasaki jet ski.

He put the resource extracted from it in the back of the Riva imitation, so the Jet-Zet was born. The base weight of 250 kilos was thus associated with 50 horsepower, which is quite a good value: the boat is capable of a speed of 65 km / h with even two passengers.

The ship, which is still operational and consumes 10 liters of petrol per hour, is being auctioned off in style in Monaco. The fair value of such custom-built vehicles is always in doubt, but according to RM Sotheby’s auction house, the showy boat could cost between 16 and 24,000 euros.
