The first Riva 76’ Perseo Super was launched at La Spezia
Riva recently launched hull one of the 76’ Perseo Super, the new Sportfly model designed by Officina Italiana Design founder Mauro Micheli. The 76ft yacht with an 18ft beam features over 40sqm of glazed surfaces on the hull and superstructure, while Riva traditions are evident in the use of mahogany and polished stainless steel.
In the cockpit, the dining area can become a spacious sun pad by lowering the table for eight and covering it with cushions. The sun deck features a 4sqm central sun pad, while the upper helm is flanked by sofas on both sides.The standard lower-deck layout features three en-suite guest cabins – a fourth is optional – plus a small lounge and a galley.
The Riva 68’ Diable is a development of the former Diable
Riva’s 68’ Diable is a development of the former Diable, itself based on the Riva Super America hull. Also designed by Micheli, the 68’ Diable sits in Riva’s Open range, which spans the 27ft Iseo to the 88’ Florida.The 68’ Diable has a new hard top covering the dining area and helm station features a sunroof with a two-way opening mechanism.
The cockpit features two big sunpads, comprising a chaise-longue at the water’s edge and one that can be shaded – along with the dining area – by an automatic bimini system built into the hard top. The lower deck features a versatile social area with a galley and dinette plus three en-suite guest cabins – a master cabin midships, a twin to port and a VIP forward.
PERSHING, WALLY INNOVATION
The Pershing 6X is expected to reach 48 knots
The Pershing 6X is expected to have a top speed of 48 knots and a cruising speed of 42 with a pair of 1,550mhp MAN V12 engines, living up to the performance standards and sleek design of the 5X, 7X, 8X and 9X.

The Wally WHY200 is a 200GT hybrid yacht
Wally’s WHY200 (Wally Hybrid Yacht) is named to represent the widebody yacht’s 200GT volume, a remarkable offering on an overall length of 27m (88ft 9in) but with a sub-24m load line length.
The WHY200 has more than 200sqm (2,153sqft) of indoor living space and 144sqm (1,550sqft) of exterior space, which Ferretti Group says is ‘up to 50 per cent more living space than traditional yachts of its length’ and offers ‘the living space and lifestyle advantages of a 33m (110ft) superyacht’.
