What U.S. Buyers can expect buying a yacht in Europe

First of all- buying your yacht in Europe is fun. Chances are you have to get on a plane to get to the yacht you want anyway; so this is just a longer flight. And wouldn't you rather see a bit of Madrid, Antibes, Rome, or Monaco along the way, rather than Ft Lauderdale or Miami??

Purchase steps are the same with a few key differences:

  • You may want to get an accepted offer before you make the trip. These offers are subject to satisfactory inspection and survey prior to any 'acceptance'; but the advantage in having a vessel under contract is that no one can snatch it while you are enroute or actively considering the purchase. In this market that makes all kinds of sense.
  • We have trusted surveyors, brokers and maritime attorneys we have worked Europe for many years, so that's not a problem.
  • Once you have purchased in Europe - you will have the option to cruise the Med for awhile, or have us arrange for the vessel transport back to the U.S. (East or West Coast) on a special yacht transport ship.
  • We will assist you with insurance, U.S. Customs and Duty, Offloading and Delivery, Registration, and even finding suitable crew.
  • One more item- if the yacht needs to be converted to U.S. power system, we will also assist with that. You'll find that many European yachts have been fitted with Atlas power conversion units that get installed in the engine room so that you have seamless power hook-ups wherever you cruise.


Belowdecks there are four-stateroom. Quality fabrics offer a contrast in the saloon, but there is greater use of fabric down here to create a softer and lighter look. The beautiful blending of the contrasting textures of wood, leather and fabric orchestrates a rich and restful effect.

The master stateroom has a full-width bathroom across the aft end with a shower cubicle in the center, a bath and washbasin on one side and the head on the other. An eminently practical arrangement becomes stunningly beautiful with wood paneling and marble floors and tops.


Step through the saloon doors and there you see the Riva quality in all its glory. Leather is the unusual feature of the interior styling. Rich, brown and lustrous, it is used for paneling on the furniture, for the low coffee table and for detailing.

In terms of layout, the Opera follows convention with separate lounge and dining areas on the main deck. The galley is tucked in behind the wheelhouse; the outside door to the galley allows crew access to both of these working areas without disturbing guests. The galley may look "tucked in" but it is still a good size and well equipped for comprehensive meal preparation. On some models, the galley was fully enclosed in European style, but it has been designed so that the panel facing the dining room can be opened up to create a serving counter.The eight-seat dining table is angled across the room in a space-saving arrangement that leaves room for the day head just behind the pilothouse. On the port side, inside stairs lead up to the flying bridge. You have the option of closing off the dining area from the lounge by means of a wood-slatted Venetian blind. In the lower lounge section everything is squared off in an arrangement that is very smart.

Flybridge and decks

When you step on board you are surrounded with teak, on the decks, the bulwarks and even the large cockpit table. Riva manages a unique richness to its raw teak, a richness that welcomes and embraces you.

There is lots of teak teak on the fly bridge. The layout up here is almost circular, the settees and the bar (with barbecue) sweeping round the helm and an adjacent sun bed in the forward section. An arch mast provides the mounting points for the antenna and also houses the bimini that extends out under power to provide shelter over most of the flying bridge. Main tender stowage is a garage built into the transom.Some of the practical features, include the wide windscreen pillars and the double seat at the helm.


For machinery this yacht has a pair of MTU diesels, V-12 engines from the 2,000 range. These work through V-drive gearboxes, which keep the engine installation well aft. The 4,000 hp gives this heavy yacht a very agile performance, the speed building up to a respectable 33 knots in the right conditions.
