A friend and I are considering our options for buying an 80'-90' flybridge and our first choice at the moment is the 85' Opera. While the current 85' hull was only launched in 2003-4, the Opera line has been around for quite a long time. Our concern is that we are buying an "extension" model that will be replaced relatively soon. This, of course, would mean that we would take a larger-than-usual depreciation hit when the Opera's replacement is introduced. Does anyone have any insight as to when RIVA might be launching a replacement for the Opera? Given that the very first Operas were launched in 1999 (or even earlier?) when could one expect it to be replaced assuming a typical life cycle for yacht models? Your comments are much appreciated. Thank you!
