Introducing the Riva Scoiattolo Replica: A Masterpiece by CF Boatworks

At CF Boatworks, we take pride in crafting exceptional custom boats that embody the timeless elegance and superior craftsmanship of classic designs. We are thrilled to present our latest creation, a stunning replica of the Riva Scoiattolo. Built in 2023, our team meticulously recreated Carlo Riva’s iconic 1953 design, ensuring that every detail and nuance was faithfully captured.

The Riva Scoiattolo replica is a 14-foot runabout and holds a special place in Riva’s rich history. It is the only post-war outboard designed by the legendary Carlo Riva himself. Uniquely, the name “Scoiattolo” translates to “squirrel” in Italian, perfectly encapsulating the boat’s lightweight construction and agile performance on the water.

Classic Beauty:

When constructing this exceptional vessel, we left no stone unturned in our pursuit of excellence. Each plank of the Scoiattolo was meticulously hand-picked, and the port and starboard sides were re-sawn to achieve a flawless mirror finish. Furthermore, we spared no effort in sourcing the highest quality materials, importing the hardware directly from Riva in Italy or custom-making it in our own shop. Equally important, all fittings and hardware on the boat are either chrome plated bronze or custom fabricated from highly polished stainless steel.


Dedication to Perfection:

The attention to detail and dedication to perfection is evident in every aspect of the Riva Scoiattolo replica. With a weight of 134 kilograms, this boat strikes the perfect balance between sturdiness and nimbleness on the water. Countless hours of expert craftsmanship went into its creation, with our skilled artisans devoting over 1,600 man hours to build and finish this masterpiece.

Elegance and Speed:

Furthermore, powering the Riva Scoiattolo replica is a 25-horsepower Yamaha engine, ensuring a thrilling and responsive performance. Whether you’re cruising along the coastline or navigating calm lakes. This boat offers an unmatched experience that combines elegance, speed, and pure exhilaration.
