Riva 88 Domino motor yacht Solemates sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 26.85 metre motor yacht Solemates, listed for sale by Luxury Yacht Group, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Sean Fenniman at Allied Marine.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Riva, Solemates was delivered in 2017 as a Riva Domino Super model. Her interior in striped rosewood with fine leathers and fabrics accommodates up to eight guests in four cabins consisting of a full-beam master suite, VIP suite, a double and a twin, all with entertainment centres, flatscreen televisions and en-suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for up to four crewmembers.
In the main saloon, which benefits from the extensive glazing to allow in ample light, two settees are located to port with a third to starboard, all upholstered in white leather and grouped around a dark leather and stainless steel coffee table. Forward, a glass topped dining table seats eight guests on Poltrona Frau leather chairs and has two low cabinets for storage of glassware, china and silver.
The aft deck is substantial, offering seating on a C-shaped settee and folding chairs, along with a table and small fridge, creating the perfect venue for relaxed al fresco entertaining and dining. Meanwhile, the sundeck offers yet more outdoor living, featuring built-in C-shaped seating, dining tables, sunpads and sun loungers. For complete sunbathing privacy, the foredeck has a dinette and a built-in settee.
Twin 2,435hp MTU diesel engines power her to an exhilarating top speed of 38 knots and she is fitted with gyroscopic zero speed stabilisers.
Solemates was asking $7,990,000.
