Broker's Comments

Boatshed Torquay are delighted to offer this impressive Riva Bravo 38 for sale. She has a deep V hull tapering at the transom, ensuring that she offers speedy and smooth trips. Once I stepped onto her I was pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness and the imaginative functional design which has permitted space for a large saloon and a forward double cabin with privacy curtains. With a smart corner galley, ample headroom and a generous heads with shower she makes for comfy living. With many extras and updates she is a great boat at a realistic price.
