Broker's comments

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 is in excellent condition. Only 7 of the Riva Feadships were built between August 1961 and October 1965 and they have gained status amongst connoisseurs.
