The ten limited edition units were already sold out before entering production. Aquariva Cento, the special edition realized by Riva to celebrate the hundredth unit produced of its main model, have been created to be the boat of the Millennium and the immediate success it achieved just after its launch at the Genoa Boat Show 2006 leaves no doubts about the challenge results. The only boat available after the Genoa Boat Show, the true hull number one hundred, was sold on auction on 15th November during the Invest in Futures gala night organized in London by the Prince’s Trust, the charity established by HRH The Prince of Wales to help young lives in the UK. The Ferretti Group Chairman, Norberto Ferretti, and the Riva CEO, Ferruccio Rossi, met in the afternoon with the Prince Charles of England and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, and then they all went to the Roundhouse, in Camden Town, where the event took place. The Aquariva Cento was sold as final item of the auction just before the private concert by Sting.
