The New Riva 76’ Perseo Super |
The new Riva 76’ Perseo Super made its world debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021. Radiating elegance and sportiness, the heir to and evolution of the multiple award-winning 76’ Perseo – the most-loved Riva sport-fly of recent years – now presents new aesthetic solutions combined with distinctive functional design features. The result is new levels of excellence in onboard liveability and performance.
With an overall length of 23.25 m and a maximum beam of 5.75 m, the new Riva 76’ Perseo Super results from aesthetic and technological development that achieves a perfect balance of past, present and future.
The exterior features over 40 m² of glazed surfaces on the hull, and the superstructure are enhanced by new stylistic features. In the streamlined profile, glossy black details intersect the dominant hull colours and main deck. This contrast accents both the sporty verve and classical elegance of this extraordinary sport-fly.
One of the stand-out functional design elements in the evolution of the 76’ Perseo is its roof. An opening forward section positioned over the lounge serves to illuminate the space below and allow fresh air to enter.
The stern area is designed to offer maximum comfort for guests and excellent practicality for the crew. Almost the entire swim platform can be lowered into the water, where it acts as an underwater surface to relax on and aid in entering and exiting the water safely.
Consistent with the excellent functionality that characterises the entire yacht, launching and hauling up the Williams Turbojet 325 tender is a quick and easy operation when the garage door is open, and the swim platform is lowered. For owners intent on having maximum fun, an optional second water toy can be installed on the swim platform in addition to two Seabobs in the garage on either side of the tender.
The cockpit offers a generous area for socialising, with a sofa in the aft section and an eight-seater teak dining table with stainless steel base. The entire area can be converted into a sun pad with a mechanism that lowers the table, making it possible to cover the area with cushions. The area is enhanced with solutions that increase comfort, like the option of a drawer refrigerator under the sofa or a pouffe with a low table.
A bar corner configuration with stools is available on request, with the mahogany and polished stainless steel detailing and the Corian countertop being emblematic of Riva’s style. Completing the set-up is a fridge, an icemaker and a sink so that you can enjoy a drink in an intimate romantic setting. On the left, under the stairs leading to the sun deck, is the entrance to the crew cabin on the lower deck.
The spacious sun deck is integrated into the yacht’s aerodynamic profile, offering a place to relax in total privacy, plus a helm station to pilot the yacht from a privileged vantage point. A large central sun pad, with a forward-facing sofa at its edge, reigns elegantly over this area. The second centrally-positioned helm station is forward and surrounded by other sofas on both port and starboard sides.
The bow area is fitted out as a spacious lounge with a front-facing sofa that can be sheltered by an extendable hood. A big sun pad at the end of the bow completes the features in this private relaxation area. The Arctic White Mambo fabric used for the exterior upholstery amplifies the ethereal refinement of all the outdoor spaces.
The dominant wood in the main lounge for the standard version is sand-coloured oak, juxtaposed in classic Riva style against mirrored surfaces or light and dark lacquer, with polished stainless steel detailing. On request, you can opt for rosewood as the featured wood, enhanced by colour contrasts, elegant finishes and fine details.
The lounge is an ample and inviting space. Past the glass entry door, the living area on the starboard side is furnished with a comfortable sofa, an armchair and a pouffe designed by Gentili & Mosconi and a leather-topped coffee table. Further forward is the dining area, which seats eight and features an L-shaped sofa elegantly coordinated with the oak table and black leather chairs by Arper. The helm station is forward on the starboard side and furnished with two Riva pilot seats.
The lower deck is characterised by the refined pairing of sand-coloured oak and pale or dark lacquer interspersed with bold black leather detailing, including rosewood as an alternative option. In the standard layout, the yacht’s lower deck welcomes guests into a cosy lounge furnished with a large, light-coloured, L-shaped sofa by Gentili & Mosconi and, on request, a pouffe with a low table.
The standard layout has three cabins for six guests, all with en-suite bathrooms, but a fourth cabin can be configured to ensure optimum livability on request.
The master suite dominates the mid-ship section of the yacht. The stand-out features of ultra-refinement and minimalist design are the bed with leather headboard and sides and the beauty of the ergonomic and functional furnishings. The en-suite bathroom is behind a smoked glass mirror door. On the starboard side is a guest cabin furnished with single beds and a separate bathroom, while the VIP cabin is in the bow, with a twin wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom with a separate shower.
As always, acoustic insulation in this area is exceptional. The forward and aft walls in the master suite have additional insulation to guarantee maximum comfort.
