The Pegiva is the type of boat an owner uses for a pleasant Sunday afternoon run with a couple of friends, up to Sanctuary Cove on the Gold Coast or to an exclusive harbour-side restaurant in Sydney for lunch, when the weather is right that is.Find out more
Pegiva Luxury Boats
The first model, the Classic, was made from Brazilian mahogany, with 22 coats of protective polyurethane, which produced a finish similar to that of a grand piano. It took two men a whole year to finish just one.
From the Classic the RetroSun was born, a composite hull to increase durability and reduce maintenance. The trademark Brazilian mahogany inserts and timber-laid decks remained to add a touch of nostalgia, deck fittings are custom made and cast in 316 solid stainless steel, then highly polished to a mirror like finish.
The RetroSun is 7.5 metres in length, with a beam of 2.3 metres and seating for five.
The majority of boats are exported to Netherlands, USA, Switzerland, Germany and Dubai.
The Pegiva brand is firmly established in Europe where their sporty mix of speed and style has made them a highly sought-after superyacht accessory.
Pegiva recently shipped a Retro Sun across the Pacific to Florida and into the waiting arms of famous performer, Billy Joel. The Piano Man came across the Pegiva website early in 2006 when he googled retro boats and made a mental note to check out Pegiva when he toured to Australia in November 2006.When he returned to Florida and showed the brochures to his next door neighbour, he ordered one too, sight unseen.
