The Antibes Yacht Show kicked off yesterday on the very sunny French Riviera. The show this year sees the attendance of some our favourites – from DEVOCEAN to AVELLA and more! The highlight of our show was finally getting to see the very exciting and highly reputable Riva Domino 86 RHINO. We saw RHINO around the French Riviera last summer, ever-popular on charter she regularly frequented the hottest spots of Cannes, Monaco and St Tropez.
Spanish sundowners last night provided excellent refreshment on a beautiful evening in Port Vauban, Antibes. The boat itself feels large beyond its size with huge outside space at the rear, flybridge and dining on the bow. She’s highly specced with beautiful tan leather upholsteries outside, sumptuous tweed soft furnishings in the cabins and a full-beam master suite which offers space otherwise never found on yachts of this size.
RHINO is the most stylish yacht around. Her calendar for this season is starting to fill so we highly recommend ceasing this opportunity to charter this one-of-a-kind yacht! Contact our team in Cannes today for more information.
RIVA is one of the oldest and best known names in yachting!
Carlo Riva’s most famous creation is without doubt the RIVA Aquarama. Famous for its speed, beautiful appearance and craftsmanship, the RIVA Aquarama quickly became known as the Ferrari of the boat world, a symbol of wealth on the fashionable French Riviera during the 1960s, 70s and 80s. However it was another giant of the Italian motor industry that first teamed up with RIVA in the 1960s when Ferruccio Lamborghini commissioned a custom Aquarama for himself. This amazing boat was fitted with twin 4.0 litre V 12 engines taken directly from a Lamborghini 350 GT, each producing 350hp giving a top speed of 48 knots! LAMBORGHINI was finally delivered to Ferrucio in 1968.
After Ferrucio’s death in 1993, the boat was left untouched for many years until recently when a Dutch collector tracked it down and asked the team at Riva World to restore her to the great working condition she had been in for decades previously. The results are truly astounding! As the video below shows, LAMBORGHINI is looking as good as she ever has. Three years of hard work and devotion from the highly skilled team at Riva World, led by Sandro Zani, has led to the resurrection of a masterpiece of engineering.
At Boatbookings.com, we have an appreciation of both the old and new. We take pride in matching our clients to the best yacht for them, whether that be an ultra modern super yacht such as M OCEAN or a classic sailing yacht like the BLUE PETER.

Why not escape the hustle and bustle and bright lights of the French Riviera this summer and take your charter east to Èze? The small village provides an escape from the busy towns along the coast, still maintaining its beautiful and picturesque historic buildings that date back to as early as 1306.
Climb to the top of the village and take in the panoramic views of the Côte d'Azur, or visit the Botanical gardens which are renowned for their collection of cacti and succulents. There is a wonderful collection of shops, art galleries and restaurants around the village, making it popular with honeymooners and tourists alike. The commune then extends down to the coast where Èze-sur-Mer is home to a stunning but narrow stony beach, making it a quiet and tranquil spot to escape the crowds. We can recommend a great place for you to spend the day on land, sampling some of the fine continental cuisine and hospitality the Riviera is famous for.
Take a day to unwind at the Anjuna Bay Restaurant and Private Beach. The décor is unusual and exotic with Indian and East Asian influences, lending itself the crystal clear waters that surround Èze-sur-Mer. You can relax on one of the loungers and receive fantastic service from the welcoming and attentive staff.
For dinner the restaurant at the private beach cooks some of the finest traditional and modern Mediterranean cuisine, accompanied by the sea view throughout. For larger groups there is a set menu available which includes drinks and is great value for the sumptuous food and drink on offer here. If you're looking for somewhere to eat on the beach, Anjuna Bay is a must for all parties.
She has berths for up to 8 people and maintains a cruising speed of 34 knots, meaning even with 8 passengers she can still glide along the French coast. RHINO does this whilst spoiling the charterer for choice with where to spend their time whether it be on the sun pads on the foredeck or flybridge as well as a lavish and relaxing lounge area with dining space for up to 8. The Captain and his enthusiastic team guarantee an unforgettable charter on board RHINO.
