What is the name of the most famous boat brand in the world? Whoever is to answer this question is likely to name four letters: R-I-V-A. The shipyard, its models and the stories of its owners have cemented a reputation that is unparalleled and that was spreading so slowly shortly after the Second World War, in the early 1950s.
Poroli Special Boats is thus one of the oldest Riva representatives worldwide and has already sold dozens of models of the cult label in Switzerland, Germany and the Mediterranean.
The demanding clientele, however, rewards as well the excellent after-sales service provided by Poroli Special Boats. At its location at Lake Maggiore, the company has its own shipyard offering all kinds of maritime services. There are also two showrooms, a painting hall, a winter storage for up to 150 boats, a marina and two indoor test pools. Owners of older Riva models, i.e. those made of wood (up to 1996), also appreciate the expertise of the Poroli team and the supply of original spare parts.
The latest addition to the Poroli portfolio is an office in Grünwald near Munich, in addition to the Majorcan location in Puerto Portals. Under the umbrella of BAVARIA AG, Poroli moved into a representative consulting office at the beginning of December. “We are pleased about the strategically important location,” says Katharina Poroli, “and of course about many visits there and at the boot Düsseldorf, where a DolceRiva 48 and a Riva Argo 90 will be presented in January”.
