This official model boat of RIVA Ariston is built in mahogany exactly as the real boat with fitting parts ( chrom brass) built by our jewellers. Real upholstery. In order to obtain a perfectly smooth hull and deck, 5 layers of varnish are applied, intersected with increasingly fine stages of sanding. The final phase consists in applying several layers of gloss varnish to produce a ” mirror effect ” characteristic of these boats. This is the most exceptionnal Riva model with its exclusive licence.
For over 14 years we have developed many partnerships with prestigious shipyards such as Riva, Chris Craft, Beneteau, Jeanneau, etc. … We work closely with them to get very close to the original model boats.
The workshop located in Vietnam was born in the same time than our company, by combining local know-how to craft modern methods of design and production of today’s boats. this workshop produce only boat models for KIADE.
From old to new, Kiade proposes an extensive range of up-market models. They are handcrafted and ready to display."
