Heir to and evolution of the multiple award-winning 76’ Perseo, the best-loved Riva sport-fly of recent years proposes new aesthetic solutions combined with unprecedented functional design features, achieving excellence in terms of onboard liveability and performance.
With an overall length of 23.25 metres (73 ft 3 in) and a maximum beam of 5.75 metres (18 ft 10 in), Riva 76’ Perseo Super is the result of an aesthetic and technological development effort that achieves a perfect balance of past, present and future, the product of collaboration between the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, designer Mauro Micheli, the founder of Officina Italiana Design with Sergio Beretta, and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
Exterior styling featuring over 40 square metres of glazed surfaces on the hull and in the superstructure is enhanced by new stylistic features. In the streamlined profile, glossy black details intersect the ice white dominating the hull and main deck, in a contrast that 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 the roof with an opening forward section positioned over the lounge, with the dual function of illuminating the space below and allowing fresh air to enter.
The cockpit offers an area for socialising, with a sofa in the aft section and a teak dining table seating eight featuring the Riva logo and a stainless steel base. The spacious sun deck is integrated into the yacht’s aerodynamic lines, offering somewhere to relax in total privacy, plus a helm station to pilot the yacht from a privileged vantage point. A big central sun pad covering about 4 square metres, with a forward-facing sofa at its edge, reigns elegantly over this area. The bow area, on the other hand, is fitted out as a big lounge with a front-facing sofa that can be sheltered by a hood. A big sun pad at the tip of the bow rounds out the fittings in this private relaxation area.
All mooring gear is hidden from view, in a solution designed not to detract from the yacht’s beautiful lines, but without compromising on the practicality of technical manoeuvres and enhancing the ergonomics.
A third lateral manoeuvring station is also available on request.
The dominant wood in the main lounge for the standard version is sand-coloured oak, juxtaposed in classic Riva style against mirror surfaces or light and dark lacquer, with polished stainless steel detailing. On request, the owner can opt for rosewood as the featured wood, enhanced by colour contrasts and fine finishes and detailing.
The lounge is a large and inviting open space. Past the glass entry door, the living area on the starboard side is furnished with a sofa, an armchair and a pouffe designed by Gentili&Mosconi and a leather-topped coffee table. The Mariaflora cushions are a pleasing detail and enhance the seating by making it even more comfortable. Further forward is the dining area seating eight, featuring an L-shaped sofa elegantly coordinated with the oak table and black leather chairs by Arper. Forward on the starboard side and furnished with two Riva pilot seats is the helm station.
The lower deck too is characterised by the refined pairing of sand-coloured oak and pale or dark lacquer interspersed with bold black leather detailing, including the possibility of opting for rosewood as an alternative featured wood. The layout has three cabins for six guests, all with en-suite bathrooms.
The new Riva 76’ Perseo Super excites owners with excellent performance in line with the other great success stories in the sport range and is fitted with a pair of MAN V12 V-drive engines rated 1,550 mhp each. With this configuration, the yacht has a top speed of 32 knots and a cruising speed of 28 knots. The owner can also opt for a more powerful propulsion system featuring two MAN V12 engines rated 1,800 MHP each, in which case the top speed rises to 37 knots and the cruising speed to 32 knots.
The bridge is equipped with a Xenta electro-hydraulic steer-by-wire system with independent control of the rudders for sporty turn optimisation and a SIMRAD COMMAND helm station with integrated onboard monitoring and navigation and manoeuvring controls. From here the captain can manage the entire yacht using three 16-inch touchscreens. The owner can also request a solution with three 19-inch touchscreens and a convenient and functional manoeuvring joystick. The external helm station has one 16-inch touchscreen in the standard version and two in the optional version.
