The Riva 76 Perseo Super is a 76-foot sport fly yacht that was launched by the iconic Ferretti-owned shipyard Riva in 2021. Designed in partnership with naval stylists Officina Italiana Design, this sporty yacht bears a super-sharp and ultra-contemporary body, a striking metallic paintjob and a low-slung flybridge that almost disappears from view at profile. This Riva yacht is the successor to the popular 76 Perseo from 2015, and updated touches include a glazed sunroof above-helm, much larger, redefined hull windows, refreshed interiors, an improved wheel-house and hi-tech, performance enhancing additions.
Masterful use of space up on the compact, al-fresco flybridge allows for a triple sunpad to the rear, a pair of side chaise-longues, an Ottoman and a sofa, so that up to eight guests at a time can enjoy thrilling sea views from this raised vantage point. There is also a centrally located and fully equipped helm up here, with nothing but a Venturi-style windscreen separating you from peerless perspectives to the distant horizon.
A modern foredeck lounge built into the soft curves of the superstructure itself features a sunken sofa lined in Arctic Mambo fabric or authentic leather and a forward facing sunpad for a trio of guests. Back in the teak and mahogany lined aft-cockpit you will discover a shaded L-shaped sofa, a hidden wet-bar station with a grill and a U-shaped transom sofa with a table that can be turned into a sprawling rear sunpad. Side steps lead down to a hydraulic swimming platform and access to a transom garage that can store a Williams jet-tender and a pair of Seabobs.
Refined carpeting, plush Gentili Mosconi fabrics, Arper leather furnishings and Mariaflora cushions contrast against authentic rosewood or beach-toned oak surfaces, polished stainless-steel fixtures and richly lacquered accents in the salon for a feel that is both elegant and restrained. Latticework side glazing extends all the way to the ceiling, while an above-helm sunroof and rear sliding glass doors keep the light streaming in. There is space in here for an L-shaped lounge sofa, a dining sofa paired with a mahogany table and plenty of handsome, hand-finished cabinetry, as well as a starboard helm with a pair of piloting chairs. The helm has been designed around the sports cruising experience, and features Xenta electro-hydraulic steering, a Simrad COMMAND system with touch-screen monitors, Humphree trim tab controls, an Aventics joystick, thruster controls, Seakeeper NG18 switches and VHF Radio.
Revisited lower-deck layouts mean that there is room for an additional cabin on this yacht when compared to the older 76 Perseo model, though some buyers exchange this for a lower dinette lounge with an L-shaped sofa. You will also find the galley on this level, a Corian-lined space with Bosch appliances and a full-height fridge-freezer that is perfectly suited for extended voyages out to sea. Four en-suite cabins provide sleeping space for up to eight, with two amidship twins, a VIP double to the bow and a full-beam owner’s stateroom to aft. The largest of the rooms features a king-sized bed, cabinetry, mirrored wall panels, panoramic hull glazing, bedside cabinets, a full-height closet and a marble-lined, semi-open bathroom.
A pair of MAN V12 1800 diesel engines allow for full throttle top speeds of around 37 knots and consistent cruising speeds of 32 knots. At the lower pace you can expect a range of around 315 nautical miles.
