Tievoli is Riva hull #332 in the 1969 Aquarama series numbered from #306 to #370. She was originally delivered to a Norwegian businessman in St. Tropaz and christened Kalmouck. As the story goes, after many years of motoring off Monaco, her owner was forced to sell after a business downturn. The boat was sold to a boatyard In Bremerhaven, Germany and re-sold to a boat builder in Hamburg.
The Aquarama finally found its way to the Shepherd Family in California where she lives at Lake Tahoe with her new name Tievoli, “I Love It” spelled backwards.
