Riva has announced the build has begun on its new flybridge yacht, the Riva 100 Corsaro.
Owners will have the option of two engine configurations for the 29.9 metre yacht, which will be built at the La Spezia shipyard. The twin M93 2435 mhp will provide a maximum speed of 27.5 knots while the twin M94 2638 mhp can produce up to 29 knots.
The Riva 100 Corsaro features large glazed windows that punctuate the hull and superstructure on the main deck, offering panoramic views from the saloon. Below, an uninterrupted large hull window and portholes on both sides connect the cabins.
The large windows add to the Riva 100 Corsaro's interior open-space design. The central area of her interior features a living area with a C-shaped sofa and plenty of entertainment, a dining room that can seat 10, with a lobby aft that leads to the master suite.
The wide-body master suite has a central double bed and walk-in wardrobe, a writing desk/vanity table with a panoramic view to starboard and a plenty of space to lounge. One of the unique elements of the first Riva 100 Corsaro is that a private lounge, kitted out with audio/video equipment and karaoke, replaces the large forward bathroom.
With three double suites and a twin located below on the lower deck, the Riva 100 Corsaro can accommodate up to 10 guests. The crew quarters are located forward, with two crew cabins and a captain's cabin.
Aft she has an innovative garage door that folds down to create a large beach club at water level. The operating system, patented by Ferretti Group, can submerge the platform to various depths so guests can relax on the water, and also allows the garage to flood to launch or haul out the tender.
The sun deck forward of the Riva 100 Corsaro offers breathtaking views and plenty of relaxing space. Aft lies an al fresco dining area next to a cocktail bar on the flybridge.
The first unit was sold in Asia and will be presented in September during Ferretti’s private preview in Monaco, a few days before its worldwide debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2016.
