Elegance, harmony and style are three adjectives that are associated with the legendary Riva 63 Vertigo by the boatbuilder that became so indelibly associated with the high life during the heady 1950’s and 1960’s.
When this model was first launched in 2007, it took up the challenge of reinterpreting the concept of “open” making a name for itself as a high-performance yacht with a high technology content, offering space optimization and maximum comfort through numerous innovative solutions.
Delivered in 2008, ‘Pleasure Island’ is the Riva 63 Vertigo which was put in the capable hands of Palumbo SY Naples for some expert maintenance jobs.
Her interior provides maximum space and luxury: wenge wood and light oak give a touch of modernity without foregoing the classic elegance inherent to Riva yachts.
Below deck she can accommodate 6 guests in 3 cabins, comprised of two doubles with bathroom and a twin.
Powered by two V12 MAN engines, this speedy yacht can reach up to 40 knots.
While the overall quality of her finish was originally good, ‘Pleasure Island’ has required the yard team to carry out a complete maintenance service to her fiberglass hull, in addition to repainting the convertible hard-top for the cockpit and completely replacing the decking with slats in extra-striped Burma Teak. The latter being a particularly noteworthy job as it entailed stripping all the existing teak slats, cleaning and preparing the substrate, templating (making an accurate pattern for the replacement slats), manufacturing each single slat at the shipyard woodworking shop and finally assembling them on deck and sanding the new decking off.
Now that the whole job is complete, this perfectly sized boat for exploring the Italian Riviera in great style with friends and family is once again ready to take in our charming costal towns and sunny beaches.
