Mincio Model Boat Kit
The Mincio kit is a scale reproduction of a typical inboard engine boat, similar to the Riva Aquarama. The Aquarama was considered to be a nautical legend and compared to the Ferrari of the boating world. Boats like this can be typically seen on the canals of Venice and utilise a curved windscreen that wraps around both the passengers’ and driver’s head, creating somewhat of a 360 degree view of the landscape.
The design of the windscreen was inspired by the Cinerama period of the 1960’s. Boats like this one had a posh and sleek mahogany finish, giving the vessel a look of absolute luxury. Seats were finished in premium leather and the boats could reach speeds of up to 50 knots, using a 400 hp engine. The Mincio and her sibling counterparts were very much a part of 1960-culture and have made their mark on nautical history.
