Classic Riva Sinks in Sapri

A ten meter classic Riva flybridge motor cruiser sank while in her berth in Sapri yacht marina, to the South of Naples in Italy on the morning of Wednesday 22 February.  The Riva classic cruiser was unattended at the time of sinking and according to some reports had the bilge pumps going on for quite some days, before energy ended and power faded which led to its sinking.  
The Riva in this sinking is a Portofino 34 model produced between 1976 to 79 in 38 units.  Sharing hull with the longer produced Summertime 34 the Portofino was a nice mix of sportfish influence to those of a sport cruiser, with an open main deck and a double berth with head lower deck.  Powered by twin 350hp gas or 225hp diesels the Portofino 34 reached 35 and 29 knots top speeds respectively.
