Later known as the Riviera, the first FN.333 flew 4th December 1952 and was a three seater powered by an under powered Continental engine. The second aircraft flew on the 8th December 1954 powered by a more powerful engine but still with only accommodation for three. Owing to a shortage of funds Nardi were not able to complete a third more definitive model until 14th October 1956 powered by the Continental engine noted above. Lacking further funds the design and manufacturing rights were sold to SIAI Marchetti in March 1959. A total of some 29 were made, most of which were sold in the U.S.A., but examples were sold to Australia, Norway and Sweden. There are still some Riviera's extent today in the U.S.
