Riva Superamerica 42

This classic Riva Superamerica 42 is a totally unique example of this highly sought after Italian gem, one which turns heads wherever she goes. Meticulously refurbished and modernised over the last decade. She benefits from twin Cummins 375hp engines (engines are in need of an overhaul), 5kw generator, E series Raymarine navigation aids, holding tank, Tek Dek decking and a hull professionally treated for osmosis and coated in coppercoat for the ultimate protection.
