Riva’s woody speedboats are some of the most famous in the world, with the global jet set taking to their smooth lines and stunning style instantly.
This 1959 Florida was owned by Bridget Bardot and docked at her St. Tropez villa throughout the 1960s. Its name ‘Nounours’ translates from French as Teddy Bear — but we read as ‘nooner!’
The flip back seat of the boat converted into a reclined sunbed, perfect for those romantic trysts around lunchtime.
The estimate is not yet available, be we expect it to be fairly reasonable. A top value of around $200,000 is a safe bet, but you never know with this boat’s special Hollywood connection and stellar condition.
