1965 Feadship Riva Caravelle

Pompano Beach, Florida


Caravelle is a 1965 78'9" Classic steel Motor Yacht built by the famed Royal De Vries shipyard in Aalsmeer, the Netherlands, now part of Feadship. Caravelle's designer was Carlo Riva and her naval architect was H.W. De Voogt. She had a major refit in 2018 and 2019 at the Feadship XL yard in Makkum, the Netherlands. More work was done in 2019 and 2020 at the Rybovich yard in West Palm Beach. She is in excellent condition. Only 7 of the Riva Feadships were built between August 1961 and October 1965 and they have gained a status amongst connoisseurs.
