Italian elegance with a sporty look: The Riva 76 Perseo

The Riva 76 Perseo is one of my personal favorites when we are talking of “smaller yachts”. My previous impressions from images where confirmed during my visit at the boot Düsseldorf. This 23m motor yacht comes with a sporty and elegant look but also with a small flybridge to enjoy the journey with a view.

This beauty was designed by Officina Italiana Design. The designers Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta chose Moon Grey – a metal silver – as the main color.


The main salon with the integrated helm station has very big windows that catch a lot of natural light. This area features an L-shaped settee for dining and an L-shaped sofa with a coffee table.

Downstairs on the lower deck is the full-beam owners’ suite with walk-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom, sofa, and desk. The VIP cabin is in the bow. Furthermore, there is a twin guest cabin and the galley on the lower deck. The area for two crew members is behind the engine room with direct access to the technical area.

The sundeck has a fold-out helm station with engine monitoring, joysticks for thrusters/tiller and radio device. Furthermore, a U-shaped seating area forward and a sunbathing area aft.
