The boat

With wider use of the steam engine in the late 1800’s, the first passenger ships called “Steam Launches” were made in the United States to transport people from Long Island to Manhattan. Lake Como followed suit creating its first motor boats called “Vaporinas”; long boats with sleek lines, a driving position in the bow, space in the rear for passengers, and partly covered by a glass rooftop. Built for the upper-class, these Larian boats are a symbol of elite tourism of that era. These beautiful boats can still be seen on the lake today thinks to the expert craftsmanship of Cantiere Ernesto Riva and the design of engineer Carlo Bertorello who have updated the Vaporina in the same classic style but with all the modern day technology and comfort.
