Ask A Question

There are many questions you may have about a Riva yacht charter. We're happy to answer any of them, and below we've listed a few common questions

How do I choose?

Tough choice, as they are all beautiful capable yachts. I would start with 2 questions, how many guests and where are you planning on going? This will help determine the size of yacht that would work. However we are at hand to offer our expertise.

Where can we go?

All our charters start in the port of Monaco, from here in a day charter you can comfortably go to Eze, Nice, St Jean-Cap-Ferrat, Beaulieu-sur-mer, Villefranche, Vintimille, San Remo. Anything further, you'll be best booking a multi day to best enjoy the time efficiently.

Bad weather?

In the event of bad weather or any other reason that it is unsafe to go out on the yacht we will do our best to find an alternative day or vessel. This can be done by way of a credit note. 


We can cancel booking provided we receive the request 28 days before the day of charter. Anything shorter and we will have to charge you for the yacht. We will however be normally able to cancel the skipper and any A.P.A.

Can we swim?

The skipper will stop in a safe location, drop the anchor and ensure the engines are stopped, the swim platform or ladder is down and then you can all enjoy a swim in the beautiful Mediterranean sea.  All the yachts have showers and changing rooms as well as a WC to ensure you can get correctly dressed for whatever comes next. 

Do the yachts have any shade?

All the modern Rivas have shade, even the open models featured have electric Bimini tops that provide adequate shade during those Riviera hot sunny days. 

How much will fuel be?

All the modern Riva yachts apart from the Iseo are twin engine. They are all modern diesel engines which will show a litres per hour rating depending on how fast and hard your work the engines. It's a simple maths calculation, the litres per hour x time. If you are happy to gently miandre around the coast you can minimise the fuel use compared with working the engines hard and blasting down the coast. 

How long is a day charter

All our charters (unless prior agreement) begin at 10am and end at 5pm. We would love you to stay on for a sundowner and enjoy some of your favourite jams back in port, just ask if you  can on a sundowner to your charter.  Similarly if you want to get an early start we can normally accommodate this or any other request - within reason.
