Boat location: Wanssum / The Netherlands
This VAT paid April 2000 delivered Riva 70 Dolce Vitacomes fully packed with exceptional options for an even more exceptional price and in good condition. Many upgrades after purchase by her second owner.
This just is a spectacular yacht and most likely the only example sailing the Dutch waters. Due to her location she benefits of having rare extra’s as a completely new (2020) Kabola HR central water heating system that has been seamless integrated with her full air-conditioning system. Furthermore a large Victron Quattro 24/5000/120 inverter/charger combination with digital remote control.
This last option enables you to limit the shore power to any desired value.
Once you have foot on deck you instantly sense the quality and feeling only a brand like Riva can produce. Her saloon provides ample space and light throughout, a very comfy dinette is placed on starboard opposite of the luxurious helm position with teak flooring preventing dirt entering when coming from deck trough her huge side-door.
Behind you find the large saloon with crème leather upholstery and a on starboard side placed cabinet packed with storage, tv, bose sound system etc. A large cabinet with the original Riva cutlery and crockery is found directly near the corridor that leads to her full beam super huge galley.
The accommodation on board is a typical 6 plus crew layout in a king size double and super-sized double twin with en suite facilities.
Twin large electric stern winches are covered by a full teak cover that also can be used as stern side seats. A 350kg Besenzoni hydraulic crane is found under an electric operated lid that also houses the electric powered cable drum for the Riva’s shore power cable and little storage for cleaning items. Furthermore you find a hydraulic Besenzoni gangway in a cassette that slides nearly invisible below deck. Solid teak decks, original Riva wooden table and foldable super sturdy polished Riva chairs can convert her cockpit to a dining for eight.
Under the starboard cockpit seat is the entrance to a very fancy crew cabin with twin beds, a large shower, sink and own head. In 2020 a new Waeco fridge has been installed for the comfort of her permanent crew.
The owners cabin has been refitted with new alcantara headliners just weeks ago and for her king size bed a special mattress was produced.
Beautiful lighted lockers are found throughout the master and a very comfortable make up table is integrated.
En suite a very large head with all facilities as shower compartment, wash basin, toilet and bidet are found with the last two beautiful hidden under a grp Riva design lid.
In between Master and guest cabin the central connecting corridor is placed and also functions as super large storage for appliances as for example a vacuum cleaner and other householding items.
On both port and starboard there are two ample sized guest cabins, both with own en-suite heads and identical facilities as the Dolce Vita’s Master head.
Optionally the guest cabin twin berth layout can be changed to a double or even two double guest cabins.
On starboard a very well equipped helm station gives you full control of this beautiful Riva, a very nice feature is the remote control that enables full control from wherever you are. Quad digital interfaces powers the MAN engines as well as bow and stern thrusters.
Although the navigation systems are a little outdated the systems work fine and give you all information you need.
Imagine this Riva 70 with all new black flush mounted touch screen panels…
The enormous fully airconditioned and full beam galley is found on the Riva’s full beam and the entrance is located on her starboard side with only 4 steps down.
If you can’t make it in this galley, you just can’t cook…!
The fly bridge comes with identical instruments as the lower helm position and is furthermore equipped with a wet-bar with sink, fridge and grill.
It also accommodates a large L-shaped settee and sun chairs on the back of her fly.
A complete set of covers as well as a Bimini comes with the yacht.
Forget about the exterior staircase as you find far more comfortable stairs to the fly from inside.
The true masterpiece is found below deck, her engine room!
Once you enter from her electric operated entrance you will notice that time stood still.
After 20 years it is still as it was delivered by Riva. It was just kept very well and very tidy.
All is original except for the 2020 Kabola central heating and the new superheavy Victron Quattro 24/5000/120 inverter/charger.
This Riva 70 Dolce Vita is ready to go anywhere!
