The newly debuted Riva 76′ Bahamas from the iconic yacht builder may just be the answer to your yachting needs, a stunning fusion of high-tech innovation with sleek Italian styling and a contemporary twist. Riva’s 76′ Bahamas, which debuted earlier this month at the Cannes Yachting Festival alongside the Riva 102′ Corsaro Super and the limited-edition Riva Anniversario, offers new, redesigned spaces in a new iconic form. The name Bahamas is said to have been a part of Riva’s history for a long time, as the tropical destination conjures up images of far-flung paradise islands waiting to be explored by superyachts.
The Riva 76′ Bahamas, inspired by the original yacht designed by Mauro Micheli in the 1990s, is the industry’s second convertible yacht. The new Riva 76′ Bahamas Super is an exceptional yacht that combines the allure of timeless style with technological advancements. Her hull was designed to provide owners with ‘high-impact design,’ and it is based on the Perseo 76, giving her a classic retro appeal with cutting-edge comforts. Her reimagined sleek, striking, and sporting lines capture the rich Riva heritage perfectly. The hull color, a glossy shark gray with black accents, combined with the updated hull glazing and windows, give this new model a striking, distinct appearance that will catch the eye wherever she cruises. Simultaneously, her redesign ensures that the lower deck accommodations receive as much natural light as possible.
Regardless of how distinctive her aerodynamic exterior styling is, it is her convertible c-top that has garnered her much-deserved attention. The carbon hardtop, first seen on the Riva 88 Florida, can also cover the foredeck seating and be retracted entirely in a single, fluid movement. The ability to convert the Riva 76′ Bahamas Super from an open sport flybridge to a coupe with the flip of a switch is nothing short of brilliant. Her main deck has a sociable layout with plenty of seating options, alfresco dining, and sunpads located forward and aft for sunbathing. During cruising, the high sides and wraparound windscreen provide guests with a solid sense of security as they move around the deck. Aft, two staircases lead down to the transom swim platform, where you can swim directly into the water. The lower deck has three cabins, with the owner’s suite amidships and a double VIP suite forward. The twin cabin is on the starboard side, and all cabins have ensuite bathrooms. A spacious galley with plush indoor seating is located in the center of the lower deck accommodation, separated by a sliding glass door. By the engine room is a crew cabin with two bunk beds and a bathroom.
Available with twin MAN V12 1,550s or twin MAN V12 1,800s, the latter gives her a thrilling top speed of 37 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots. She is ideal for island hopping across the Bahamas in comfort, style, and speed, measuring 23.32 meters in length with a maximum beam of 5.68 meters and a draft of 1.95 meters.
