This beautiful Riva 43 Tropicana has been lovingly maintained at the highest level of luxury. Based in Cannes, France, this yacht is an exceptional example of legendary Riva design and craftsmanship. Her contemporary yet tasteful lines and her attention to detail are always in style. Her huge cockpit with wet bar, lounge seating and helm station provide a luxurious setting for high speed cruising, swimming and sun bathing, dining alfresco or just sunset cocktails at the marina. Below deck, her spacious layout is perfect for family and friends. Her two cabins will sleep five people comfortably and her full service galley and head make holiday and extended cruising a pleasure. Her very low engine hours mean many more years of international adventure along the cote d’azur.

Charter business: This yacht is available for purchase either alone, or with her successful charter business. She has commercial certification in France for 11 passengers, plus a captain. She has a proven three year record of annual bookings and profits. A UK based, limited company with a website and an established client base provide booking, administrative and management support. Annual profit from the charter business is approximately $28,000. This is a rare and profitable opportunity for an entrepreneur to get into the prestigious and lucrative cote d’azur charter industry and have the charter revenue cover all operating expenses, and yield an immediate and healthy profit. An executive summary of charter bookings is available for review. Price for the charter business is $63,000. This figure is in addition to the yacht cost.

Slip: A private slip is also available for purchase or rent. Rental cost per year is $14,000. Purchase price for the slip is $273,000. The slip is the bay of Cannes and approximately 10 minutes by boat to the city of Cannes.
