BEST of the BEST 2015: The Riva 122 Mythos
Lightweight aluminum construction enables the Riva 122 Mythos (riva-yacht.com), the latest and largest model in the Riva range, to reach a top speed of 27 knots and cruise at 25 knots. The first model, which debuted at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last fall, features a three-cabin layout; the standard Mythos layout, however, includes four cabins and the option to add a fifth.
The yacht’s saloon is furnished with three white-leather sofas and a 55-inch TV that drops down from the ceiling. The full-beam galley includes a bevy of electric appliances. The master stateroom features natural-wood furniture and chrome-plated accents. A large Jacuzzi, a sun pad, and a bar are on the upper deck. At the stern, a hydraulic platform allows for easy diving into the sea and can be used to launch the 16-foot tender or personal watercraft stored in the garage. The yacht’s price is available upon request.
