63rd Genoa International Boat Show News – The Riva 82′ Diva flybridge redefines the concept of space on board

6 September 2023

A new flybridge born to write a new chapter in the history of its category. This is how the Riva shipyard defines the new Riva 82′ Diva making its debut at the 63rd Genoa International Boat Show this year.

Riding on the strength of its 180 years of history, Riva with the new Riva 82′ Diva (25.29 metres long by 6.08 beam) adds a new model to its flybridge collection that includes the Riva 90′ Argo, the Riva 102′ Corsaro Super, the Riva 110′ Dolcevita and the Riva 130′ Bellissima.

Designed by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, founders of Officina Italiana Design, the Riva 82′ Diva stands out for its flybridge with no less than 40 square metres of surface area, organised with a lounge and bar protected by a carbon fibre hard top and with a sun deck to bow.

Another interesting space is that of the aft beach club characterised by its folding bulwarks that become terraces, as is that of the cockpit, raised and furnished with sea-view sofas, for a surface area of almost 35 square metres.

The main deck is organised with a saloon and living area that precedes the galley directly connected to the bridge. On the lower deck, the master cabin and three guest cabins sleep a total of eight. In the centre of the boat are the crew quarters.

In terms of engine set-up, the new Riva 82′ Diva is provided with two MAN V12 1800s (29 knots top speed, 26 knots cruising) or two MAN V12 1900s (31 knots top speed and 27 knots cruising).
