Lake Como looks, with love from Leeds
What they say
“Our craft combine elegant lines with the latest construction techniques. Great to look at and fun to use!”
What we say
We love any boat that looks like a classic Riva, and when it comes from Yorkshire we love it even more.
The 18 is the latest from Marine Classics, who now boast a range from 16-26ft. The firm build mahogany launches and sportsboats, using quality woods “covered and reinforced with hi-tech easy-care materials” to ensure minimal maintenance.
The standard engine and speed will be enough to tow waterskiers, but there are other power options for inland users restricted by speed limits, including an electric version. The hand-built craft can be fully customised.
