Now available! A great sailing Monte Carlo Offshorer 30 designed by Carlo Riva himself. With the great 'monoposto' single leaning post behind the dash and two smooth petrol engines, this Monte Carlo Offshorer 30 is a real show stopper.
If you’d have strolled around the ports of Cannes or St. Tropez in the 1980s, there’s one particular boat that you’d have seen more than any other: the MonteCarlo Offshorer. If you were a somebody during that time, it’s likely that you owned or at least had access to an Offshorer. The sleek and slender day cruiser, with its innovative stepped hull, central driving position, generous sun deck and racy graphics, is as synonymous with the era of excess as synth-pop, pastel-coloured linen suits and big hair.
There were two men instrumental in bringing the Offshorer to fruition: Carlo Riva of the history-steeped yacht maker, and the Italian entrepreneur, petrolhead and three-time offshore powerboat world champion Renato Della Valle. Shortly after he sold his eponymous brand in the early 1970s to Bertram, Riva travelled to Florida to meet Bob Hobbs, a naval engineer, mathematician and close friend who had developed an innovative ‘V-step’ hull that drastically improved both performance and control across the water.
All and all a great collectors item that will hold it's value or even more..
