Riva enthusiasts have a new flying-bridge model to check out come the Cannes Yachting Festival in September. The Riva 102 Corsaro Super lowered into the water this week.
The new model replaces the successful Riva 100 Corsaro, which debuted in 2017. Both megayachts share styling by Officina Italiana Design. However, the 102 Corsaro Super picks up on contemporary cues of oversize glass and a sportier overall superstructure. She further incorporates must-have features. For instance, the windows in the master suite are nearly 6’6” (2 meters), for even more appreciation of anchorages. Additionally, the 102 Corsaro Super provides owners with swing-out gunwales on each side of the main deck, to form balconies.
With a beam of nearly 23 feet (7 meters), the megayacht naturally allows multiple choices inside. Ten people can stay in five staterooms, for instance, with guests getting twins or doubles. While Canaletto walnut is standard, clients can choose furnishings’ color palettes and even glass surfaces. Hull number one shows off satin-finished titanium overheads. Additional choices include the main-deck configuration. It can feature the dining area aft or in the traditional saloon-first layout. Regardless, the side panes of glass slide open, flexibility more customers crave.
Overall, more than 1,507 square feet (140 square meters) of glass characterizes the Riva 102 Corsaro Super. This figuratively opens up the yacht to the surrounding environment. Literally opening up to it, the megayacht has 1,076 square feet (100 square meters) of alfresco leisure areas. Complementing these, the yacht has a beach club, something the 100 Corsaro did not include. It’s 377 square feet (35 square meters) of relaxation space closer to the water.
Although the shipyard hasn’t revealed hull number one’s expected performance figures, buyers get a choice of two propulsion packages. Standard power comes from twin MTUs that should push her to 26 knots. The optional, higher-horsepower MTU package should see her hit upwards of 28 knots.
On a related note, this year marks Riva’s 180th anniversary.
