New Model: Riva 76 Bahamas

Riva continues to be very active and at the start of Summer 2016 season launched an event which presented two new models, the anticipated Rivamare, and the surprise 76 Bahamas. A lot of history again going on with the name used for the new Bahamas which was the open sport yacht flagship of Riva in the early nineties, launched as 58 in 1991 and modified to a 60 from 1996 onward and delivered in 21 units in its life span.  The 58 Bahamas was also the start of a legacy, that of designer Mauro Micheli of Officina Italiana who designed all new Riva models since then.  The new 76 Bahamas is build on the very well received Perseo platform launched in the fall of 2015, and also uses the open invisible hard-top solution as used on the 88 Florida.  It is primary an open model which in need can fast become a hard-top coupe.
