The recently released Riva 76′ Bahamas from the renowned yacht builder may be the answer to your yachting needs. It is a remarkable blend of high-tech innovation, sleek Italian design, and a contemporary twist. Riva introduced the Riva 76′ Bahamas with the Riva 102′ Corsaro Super and the limited-edition Riva Anniversario at the Cannes Yachting Festival earlier this month. The Riva 76′ Bahamas features renovated interiors in a new distinctive form. It is thought that the term Bahamas has been a part of Riva’s history for a very long time, as the tropical destination conjures up images of distant paradise islands awaiting exploration by superyachts.

The Riva 76′ Bahamas, the industry’s second convertible yacht, was inspired by the original yacht constructed by Mauro Micheli in the 1990s. The new Riva 76′ Bahamas Super is an extraordinary yacht that combines the attraction of timeless style with technical innovations. It is a step above the competition. Her hull is based on the Perseo 76, which provides her a classic retro appearance with cutting-edge amenities; she was designed to offer owners “high-impact design.” Her updated sleek, stunning, and athletic lines represent the rich Riva legacy to perfection. The hull color, glossy shark gray with black accents, and the upgraded hull glazing and windows offer this new model a stunning, distinctive appearance that is certain to attract attention wherever she sails. Moreover, her redesign guarantees that the accommodations on the lower deck receive as much natural light as feasible.

Regardless of how distinctive her aerodynamic external design may be, it is her convertible C-top that has gained her so much attention. The carbon hardtop, which was originally seen on the Riva 88 Florida and which protects the helm station, can also cover the foredeck seating and retract in a single, smooth motion. The Riva 76′ Bahamas Super’s transformation from an open sport flybridge to a coupe at the flip of a switch is nothing short of brilliant. Her main deck includes an abundance of sitting in a social layout, as well as alfresco dining and sunpads for sunbathing front and aft. During cruising, the high sidewalls and windscreen provide passengers with a sense of protection as they move about the deck. Two stairwells lead aft to the swim platform, which provides direct access to the water. The lower deck contains three cabins, including the owner’s suite amidships and a double VIP suite forward. The double cabin is placed on the starboard side, and all cabins have private bathrooms. The big galley and luxurious interior seats are positioned in the center of the lower deck accommodations, separated by a sliding glass door. Near the engine room is a crew cabin with two sets of bunk beds and a bathroom.

Available with twin MAN V12 1,550 engines or twin MAN V12 1,800 engines, the yacht has a maximum speed of 37 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots. With a length of 23.32 meters, a maximum beam of 5.68 meters, and a draft of 1.95 meters, she is excellent for island-hopping in comfort, style, and speed across the Bahamas.
