A lovely example of the Italian Classic Riva 34 Flybridge Special, from one of the worlds finest names in boat building. She’s powered by twin Cummins diesels, 210hp with plenty of torque. The engines run sweetly and sound great and have only 854 hours on them. These engines are reliably simple and low maintainence to run. They are non turbos and have no complicated electronics or fly-by-wire systems to let you down at the worst possible times. Cruising speed is 22-25 knots.
She has twin shaft drives running through three bladed bronze propellers. Again, no expensive and unreliable outdrive legs here and she’ll turn easy on a six pence especially with the individual throttle and gearbox control levers.
Her interior was refurbished by the Riva agent a few years ago at great cost, keeping the vessel the way she was designed to look and function. There’s a double main cabin forward with a separate access to the shower, toilet and bidet. The seating in the saloon neatly converts to a further double berth if required. A lovely immaculate galley with sink, cooker and fridge freezer with a pull out wine holder.
Access to the extended flybridge and secondary controls is from the beamy aft cockpit. There’s a sun shade bimini and new flybridge wind dodgers and new camping aft canopy. She’s got stainless steel davits and anchor with a very recent electric windlass and calorifier too. The generous stainless stanchions make a safe space on the fore deck where there’s room to relax and lay out too. There’s a life raft, warps, rear paraselle, swim platform and numerous other nice Riva touches throughout the vessel, as well as all original Riva handbooks, drawings and history.
This classic Riva is a fantastic coastal craft. Offering delightful beamy accommodation with simple no nonsense marine engineering and a wonderful shape and design that looks great even out of the water.
