In a perfect marriage of classic design and technology, ER Innovation (a Company of Cantiere Ernesto Riva Group) unveiled the new E-Vaporina Elettra – coupling one of the legendary yachtmaker’s most admired designs with advanced electric propulsion and battery technology from the 21st century. Fittingly, it made its debut on Lake Como at this year’s world-famous beauty contest for historic automobiles and motorcycles – the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.

Each boat is a functional work of art

Daniele Riva, the 7th generation family member who currently heads the company, learned the techniques and secrets of wooden boat construction literally at the foot of masters as he grew up. He says the Vaporina: “is one of our most traditional models. With the new electric drive, we are prepared for the 21st century. The boat shows once again how elegant, uncompromisingly sustainable and safe maritime e-mobility can be in this day and age.”
