9 February 2023 • Written by Nick Jeffery

The 36.6-metre motor yacht Riva I has been sold with Michel Chryssicopoulos of IYC representing the seller and Yves Di Lena of YDL introducing the buyer.

Riva I was built in GRP by Italian shipyard Benetti as a Classic 130 model designed by Stefano Righini. She was launched in 2006 and enjoyed a refit in 2019 which saw her guest capacity increase from 10 to 12, with further quarters for a crew of eight.

Riva I was asking €5,650,000.

With original interior styling by Francois Zuretti, Riva I boasts ample interior volume at 299GT and has served as a popular charter yacht in recent years. The interior is finished in rich shades of wood grain joinery paired with soft cream carpeting and light fabrics.

Guest accommodation is split between five cabins with the option of converting the skylounge to a sixth cabin. The master suite, meanwhile, is located forward on the main deck and comprises a walk-through study and marble-lined full-sized bathroom with a generous bath and shower.

The main saloon features a lounge area to port with coffee tables, a bar and an entertainment area including a large flat screen television. Forward guests will find a formal dining area and a staircase leading to the lower deck accommodation, while a sheltered aft deck with table seating provides al fresco entertaining and dining options.

Large exterior decks geared towards entertaining features on each level. Accessed from the after deck via a twin staircase, the beach club offers an ideal spot for sundowners by the water, while further relaxation can be found on the sundeck with a Jacuzzi, barbecue grill and bar.

This Italian-built yacht for sale features a well-maintained engine room and zero-speed Naiad stabilisers to ensure reduced roll at both anchor and when underway. Powered by twin Caterpillar 1,500hp engines, Riva I can reach a top speed of 15 knots with a cruising speed of 11 knots. She has a beam of 7.9 metres and a draft of 1.95 metres.

Riva I was asking €5,650,000.
