One of our most successful holidays this summer has been a package of boat and villa. Whether you are an adventurous, adrenaline-seeking couple who can’t decide between a hidden retreat on a remote bay, and a sleek and adrenaline fueled racing toy like a Riva, you can take both, and alternate the atmosphere of an authentic, not very comfortable but highly romantic beach shack, with 500 horsepower of 21st century speed and trimmings. Maybe you are an inveterate villa -lover wanting to get some peace and quiet and offload a restless husband and noisy children, or someone with lots of friends to entertain in the area – either way, the addition of a boat can sprinkle stardust on your holiday.
Adrenaline junkies can go for a very affordable, sleek and powerful toy like this Riva, for less than you might think,
Those who want to be able to pile on to a boat with lots of friends and potter along to a nearby beach or neighboring island, enjoy lots of deck sp ace and shade, and then head home for the evening, will love a wooden schooner to use as a large floating terrace, serving evening drinks under a low, full moon, or lunch in a little bay full of the sound of cicadas in the heat.
