Benetti motor yacht Riva sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 36.6 metre motor yacht Riva, listed for sale by Konstantin Kolpakov at Arcon Yachts, has been sold with Harry Peralta at Globe Regal introducing the buyer.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Benetti to a design by Stefano Righini, Riva was delivered in 2006 as a Benetti Classic 120 model. A classically styled interior by Francois Zuretti contrasts dark mahogany joinery with cream carpeting and light fabrics to create an overall air of modern refinement.
Accommodation is for 10 guests in five cabins. The master suite, located forward on the main deck, comprises a walk-through study and an en suite bathroom with bath and a shower. The remaining four cabins – two doubles and two twins with additional Pullman berths for children – are on the lower deck. All are finely decorated and have marble-lined en suite bathrooms.
The main saloon has U-shaped seating, coffee tables, a bar and an entertainment centre including a large flat screen television. Forward is a formal dining area with seating for 10 guests. The sheltered aft deck is geared towards al fresco entertaining and dining, hosting a circular highly polished table seating 10 guests.
Up on the flybridge is further room for outdoor relaxation, offering a Jacuzzi spa tub, barbecue grill and a full bar.
Twin 1,500hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a cruising speed of 15 knots and a range of 3,400 nautical miles at 11 knots.
Lying in Pisa, Italy, Riva was asking €7.5 million.
