Riva unveils a restyled version of its Riva 76’ Bahamas vessel that was launched in 2016. The new Riva 76’ Bahamas Super boasts a radical and innovative restyling that offers new functions and unprecedented storage solutions. The extraordianry boat was born in collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the firm founded by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, working in partnership with the Strategic Product Committee led by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
The huge cockpit 76’ Bahamas Super features the generous sunpad that overlooks the beach area. The sunpad’s armrests have two built-in panels that offer an easy way to control the lighting, the stereo system, and the stern door. The lounge area is positioned on the central part of the deck and is protected by the double-curved laminated glass windscreen with a polished stainless steel frame. On the starboard side, the dining area includes an L-shaped sofa and a teak table with stainless steel trim that seats eight guests.
A fridge, an icemaker and a sink, plus an optional grill or TV screen can be found at the big bar area on the port side. The bridge and the helm station are outfitted with touchscreen displays and the steering system has been converted from hydraulic to Xenta electro-hydraulic for better functionality while cruising. The pilot and co-pilot chairs are joined by a third chair on the opposite side of the sliding hatch that leads below deck. The chairs, which are specially designed for all Riva models by Officina Italiana Design, are housed in a fibreglass cradle.
The C-TOP, the aerodynamic carbon top with a patented system that turns the yacht from an open into a coupe and vice versa, remains the ultimate feature of Riva 76’ Bahamas Super. Lifted by two carbon arms finished with a polished carbon look, it rises from the deckhouse to a position over the cockpit and locks onto the windscreen and carbon roll bar, revealing a spacious forward dinette.
The large stern garage, with an automatic door controlled from the panel in the sunpad’s right armrest, can house a 3.25-meter Williams tender and water toys. In the bow, the winch compartment has two flaps.
The full-beam master suite is furnished with a forward-facing double bed and a cabinet unit on the starboard side, complemented by the ensuite bathroom with its new layout. The master lobby has a storage area containing the washer-dryer. The layout of the guest cabin bathroom features a shower separated by a glass partition.
Riva 76’ Bahamas Super is equipped with a pair of MAN V12 V-drive engines rated 1,550 mhp each in the standard version. With this configuration, the yacht has a top speed of 32 knots and a cruising speed of 28 knots (preliminary data). Also available 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 (preliminary data). On request, a Seakeeper NG18 can be installed to offer greater stability at anchor and when cruising.
The bridge is fitted with a Xenta electro-hydraulic steer-by-wire system with independent control. 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 maneuvering joystick.
