The Riva Malibu 42 is a craft displaying real Italian flair and style, Fun Gee is presented with a new survey, and full under hull preparation and also benefits from an engine rebuild in 2011. She has been valeted throughout and her art deco interior fitments now are presented superbly. Fitted with new Engine batteries and available at an attractive price




From the bow the Riva offers an amazing amount of space to the forward deck which is generally flat with space for sunbed cushions to be located amidships, these are in two sections and can be stored inside the cabin. Flat side decks run port and starboard of approximately 12” wide at the bow decreasing to 7” at the stern. These are surrounded by stainless steel rails from the windscreen forward and then adequate hand holds are fitted to the cabin sides’ port and starboard. Upon entrancing the cockpit at the stern a stainless rail surrounds the cockpit giving a safe feel to this region. Amidships access is gained to the bathing platform which is of Teak grated design and approximately 7’ wide and2’ deep. The cockpit is fully teak covered and a ladder leads to the fly bridge to the port side and stainless steel framed sliding doors lead to the cabins. Two hatches lift below the cockpit floor giving access to the lazarette, engines, batteries and tank spaces. From the aft cockpit via a 7 rung ladder access is gained to the fly bridge which features a centrally mounted twin helm seat, giving all around visibility from the second helm station. Aft of the seat a large sunbathing area with a centrally located foldable stainless steel mast upon which all navigation aerials are mounted.



A spacious area with two V shape berths each of 6’03 x 2’ 06”. Aft and to port a seat with a deep wardrobe aft and small storage locker. Adjacent to starboard a full height mirror. The cabin is lit by art deco lamps to port and starboard and hidden lighting within the side locker storage areas. Port lights are fitted to port and starboard and these feature stainless steel blackout shutters for privacy. Forward a opening hatch gives access to the fore deck.


Located to the port side of the craft with a door to the lower corridor. Moulded in Blue GRP and fitted with a toilet which has an integrated wooden lid and closure becoming a seat for when the shower is being used. The wash basin is all fully moulded as is the storage region alongside this. Four lights over the basin give good light to the room and an opening port light again featuring stainless steel blackout


The attention to detail of the construction of the Riva is evident in the fit out of the galley which is located to port with adequate storage and cupboards. A deep rectangular single bowl stainless sink with a two ring hob fuelled by 240 v. fitted with a stainless steel cover. Beneath this a fridge with ice compartment


Situated to starboard opposite the galley the side cabin is fitted with two cross over single berths each being 6’02” x 2’04”.
