    Hull # 393 was built especially for New Yorker Ernst Petschek, who had previously owned several Tritone hulls, a design he favored for its closed rear deck. Petschek paid Monaco Boat Service a 5% premium to bypass Carlo Riva's rigid work procedure and adapt the Tritone’s aft design to this Super Aquarama, resulting in a true rarity: a Super Aquarama with Tritone decks, or “Senza Fossetta”, as it says on the MBS documentation, literally “without dimple” (sundeck).

    Around 1980 the boat was purchased by Sierra Boat of Lake Tahoe, CA and was sold to a few owners, one of which was Tom Perkins, a Venture Capitalist of Kleiner Perkins. Mr. Perkins had the interior done to match the Bugatti Motor Cars that he owned. Color – Red.

    In 2005, Hull #393 was purchased by a very knowledgeable boat owner and yachtsmen from Lake Minnetonka. He has since kept it in a boathouse, covered on a lift. The engines were completely rebuilt in 2007. The boat was Stripped, Stained & Varnished in 2006.

    Extensive documentation is available, including copies of the original factory paperwork to substantiate the engine numbers, and much more written in Italian.

    Asking Price: $750,000.00 USD
