Riva Opera motor yacht Vivace for sale
by Malcolm Maclean
The 26 metre motor yacht Vivace has been jointly listed for sale by Ultramar Yachts and Dimitris Kyriazakos at Ekka Yachts.
Built in GRP by Italian yard Riva with exterior styling and interior design by Mauro Micheli, Vivace was delivered in 2012 as one of the last Riva Opera 85 models. An interior in a neutral colour palette sleeps up to eight guests in four cabins consisting of a full-beam master suite amidships, VIP suite forward and twins to port and starboard, all with entertainment centres, LCD television screens and en-suite bathrooms. In addition, a further two cabins sleep three crew aboard this yacht for sale.
In the saloon, cream-upholstered settees are grouped in a U-shaped configuration facing a portside entertainment centre including a 42-inch LCD television screen on a rise and fall mechanism, and a Bose Lifestyle stereo surround sound system, while further forward is a dinette seating eight guests.
The aft deck with upholstered bench seating, a walnut table and four custom Riva chairs is ideal for al fresco dining, while up on the flybridge is built-in semi circular seating, a central helm position, two tables, a fridge and barbecue grill, plus the convenience of an electro-hydraulic Bimini top for shelter from the elements.
Like most models in this range, she is built for speed, with twin 2,000hp MTU diesel engines powering her to speeds of up to 33 knots and she is fitted with Mitsubishi gyroscopic zero-speed stabilisers.
Lying in Cesme, Turkey, Vivace is asking €3,000,000.
