The Riva 42 Malibu is an impressive combination of attractive Italian design and top quality construction from the famous Riva shipyard, Sarnico. This is an extremely rare model as only twenty were built between 1983 and 1986, this one being the 17th of 20. A perfect small family cruising boat, but with plenty of cockpit space and flybridge for entertaining. Future classic with incomparable build quality not found in boats these days. Please contact for further information.

Spacious aft teak laid cockpit leads through stainless steel patio doors to carpeted saloon and lower helm station, with dinette area to port and storage and helm station to starboard side. Down to equipped galley with twin guest to starboard, and bathroom further forward. Fully forward to V Berth cabin with good storage and small seat to port side.
