With its black hull and desert sand–colored deck, the Riva 68' Ego Super (www.riva-yacht.com) made quite a statement amid the comparatively conservative flotilla of yachts at the Miami International Boat Show in February. The Super represents an updated design of the original 68' Ego, which Riva released in 2005. The new version’s two en suite staterooms are larger than the original’s, the ceilings are higher, and the decor includes ivory-colored upholstery and subtle leather accents. The Super’s twin 1,150 hp MAN diesels propel the boat to a top speed of 38 knots and a cruising speed of 34 knots.
