Riva 90′ Argo
Riva has achieved quite a feat with the new 90 Argo, creating a high-speed superyacht with a main-deck owner’s suite, that’s just 90ft long. That makes it uniquely attractive to owner-drivers, as it’s well within the size limit to be driven without a master’s qualification. This is the ultimate owner-driver’s superyacht.
If you’re a lover of sunlight and great views, the Riva 90 Argo’s full length windows along both sides of the main saloon will delight you. It gives the saloon a wonderful feeling of light and space, as well as an exhilarating sense of being at one with the sea around you. Almost as good are the views from the full-beam owner’s suite, forward on the main deck – although some owners might prefer the main suite on the lower deck, which is a similar size.
On the aft deck, the dining table sits fore and aft, in superyacht style, so no-one has their back to the views. And right at the stern is Riva’s latest slick touch: steps that retract when not in use. The garage will accommodate a Williams 395 jet tender and a PWC.
This is the 90 Argo’s trump card, owner-drivers can take command of the 90 Argo as she is the largest Riva within the size limit to be driven without a master’s license. And what a fabulous feeling it is, whether at the main helm or up on the flybridge, the seagoing equivalent of a Rolls Royce: incredibly smooth, exceptionally quiet and supremely comfortable. Top speed is between 26 and 30 knots depending on engine choice.
