Cannes Film Festival, Day 5 – Inside Llewyn Davis – Our Yacht Nominee: Riva Aquarama

Inside Llewyn DavisDay 5 of the Festival International de Film, and the film of the day is Inside Llewyn Davis. Directed and written by both Ethan Coen and Joel Coen, Inside Llewyn Davis recounts the story of a singer-songwriter who navigating New York’s folk music scene in the 1960s, struggling to make his name. The film stars Justin Timberlake, John Goodman and Carey Mulligan, star of The Great Gatsby which also premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on opening night.

So in keeping with the era, the traditional style of folk music and the decade of the ’60s, our yacht nominee in this Riva Aquarama, available for charter on Lake Garda, Italy.

This classic build keeps with the traditional style of the runabout boat, used for short trips here and there – though the luxury design is a bit indulgent compared to the idea of the folk music coming from the working classes! This Riva Aquarama is an original build, fromRiva Aquarama
1968 of which there were only 281 built – so the chance to be able to charter this model is rare. Return to the good old days of the Sixties with this original model, a truly delightful way to explore the towns that surround the Italian Lake Garda.

And, keeping with the theme of a classic style yacht, we know that Justin Timberlake is no stranger to these gorgeous runabouts! In the popular movie Friends With Benefits he was taken for a ride across New York on a classic wooden runabout, so not only does our choice suit the ’60s decade, it also is a ‘favourite’ of one of the film stars!
