The condition or level of safety equipment on board is not to be negotiated on following survey. It is likely to be listed by most surveyors but is not structural or an integral working part of the vessel and is not to be used to further negotiate the price down after survey. We strongly suggest that for your own personal safety that when purchasing a yacht you provide new safety equipment rather than relying on second hand gear.

Should you become the new owner of this yacht then the responsibility to re-register or update official bodies for items such as EPIRB, VHF, MMSI or AIS becomes yours.

Manufacturer Provided Description
Wherever you look on the Riviera 42 Flybridge Convertible you'll find the most meticulous attention to detail. It's there in the transom's top mounted cleats that make tying up so much easier. It's there in the quality of the leather upholstery, the finish of the timberwork and the ergonomics of a new style cockpit. This is a boat for the entertainer, for those who love to set sail with family and friends. Dine al fresco on a generously proportioned deck, cook up a feast in a surprisingly large and superbly equipped galley, relax in a saloon that is as elegant as it is spacious, watch a show on the large flatscreen TV - it's a standard inclusion, along with the VCR, DVD and CD player.
