Entering the water in La Spezia, at the shipyard where models in the 76 to 130-foot range are built, the new Riva 102 Corsaro Super is the successor to the 100’ Corsaro, one of the most popular sellers in recent years.
With originality and class, the new Corsaro Super has impressive dimensions: 102 feet of new style accents that breathe life into an unprecedented masterpiece of yacht design, ready to leave a mark on the history of the flybridge range.
New features of the Corsaro Super are once again the work of Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, founders of Officina Italiana Design, working in partnership with the Strategic Product Committee led by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
The design of the superstructure and the hull have been completely renewed, based on a contemporary sport concept that sees direct contact with the water as the supreme pleasure of going to sea.
The new Riva 102’ Corsaro Super is over 30 metres in length and has a beam of almost 7 metres.
Her distinctive silhouette reaches out like an arrowhead, giving the yacht a sleek and assertive profile. Aft, new glass fashion plates improve the vessel’s aerodynamics while new dimensions and optimised spaces revolutionise how time is spent on board.
Functionality, maximum liveability and direct contact with the water are the guiding principles behind all-new features, including the option to install special gunwales that swing out on either side of the main deck to create exclusive terraces with panoramic views and increasing the volume of external walkways.
Three decks and five cabins accommodate up to ten guests. Almost 100 square metres of liveable open-air spaces and over 140 square metres of glazing and glass surfaces reduce barriers of visual contact with the natural world.
In more detail, the glazing in the owner suite has been redesigned and extended to two metres in length, amplifying the space, a distinctive feature of the widebody configuration and offering a breathtaking view on both sides of the yacht.
One of the highlights of the new superyacht, responding to growing demand from owners, is the complete redesign of the stern area on the main deck. This entire space will be configured as an extended 35-square-metre beach club.
The interior design also features some major innovations. In the main living area, two different layouts are available for the owner to choose from.
The first focuses on the dining space, with a table seating eight in the stern area, while the lounge is central and maintains visual contact with the ocean through extensive windows that open onto the lateral walkways.
In the second layout, the lounge and large sofas are encountered on entering the saloon, while the dining space is central.
The interior decor juxtaposes original textures that express the yacht’s unmistakable personality and appeal.
The dominant wood is Canaletto walnut. Its warm tones are set off by pairing satin effect titanium ceilings or, alternatively, by the introduction of glass surfaces and cool colours.
At the owner’s request, the new Riva 102 Corsaro Super can be fitted with the standard pair of MTU 16V 2000 M96 engines, rated 2,435 mhp each for a top speed of 26 knots, or a pair of MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines rated 2,638 mhp, driving the yacht to a top speed of over 28 knots.
The first unit will make its official debut at the 2022 Cannes Yachting Festival.
