New book describes the restoration of a classic Riva Tritone 258

The restoration of the last-surviving Riva Tritone 258 has been chronicled in a new coffee table book.

Created by Hamburg-based photographer Nicole Werner and writer Erdmann Braschos, Riva Tritone 258 describes the thorough 18-month restoration of the luxury sport boat by the Riva restorer Ju?rgen Renken. The project was particularly important because the 258, which once belonged to German media mogul Axel Springer, was believed to have been lost.

The 224-page book documents the stripping down of the boat, as well as the repair methods and techniques used to clean, stain and varnish the mahogany. It describes how the boat’s fixtures were re-chromed by a specialist from Lombardy and how the American Chris-Craft eight-cylinder engines – crude by today’s standards – were revamped in a workshop in the Lu?neberger Heide in North Germany. The Tritone 258 was the successor to Riva’s infamous Aquarama.

The book is published by Berlin-based Authentic Treasure Publications KG and is available in German and English language editions. The standard edition costs €225, excluding postage and packaging and the luxury edition €852.
