Amal Yachting, which represents Ferretti Yachts, Riva and Pershing in Taiwan, has secured the sale of a Riva 102’ Corsaro Super, which had its world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September. The first Riva 102’ Corsaro was launched in La Spezia in May (click for article) and the yacht ordered for Taiwan is hull number five, which will be the first in Asia.
Among several new Riva models launched during the year of the brand’s 180th anniversary, the 102’ Corsaro Super is an update of the 100’ Corsaro, which had its world premiere in Hong Kong in 2017. The 102’ Corsaro Super can reach 26 knots with its standard 2,435mhp MTU 16V 2000 M96 engines, while two 2,638mhp MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines produce a top speed of 28 knots.
The five-cabin yacht has a length of 30m, a beam of nearly 7m and 100sqm of liveable open-air spaces, with new updates including an upgraded beach club area covering 35sqm. The superstructure and the hull have been completely renewed, and new glass fashion plates aft improve aerodynamics.
The 102’ Corsaro Super features a new beach club and expanded glazing
The new model features over 140sqm of glazing and glass surfaces. The glazing in the owner’s suite has been redesigned and extended to 2m in length, amplifying the sense of space in the widebody configuration and offering views on both sides of the yacht.
Interior innovations include a choice of two saloon layouts. One focused on the dining space has a table for eight aft, while the lounge has views through extensive windows that open onto the lateral walkways. The second layout features the lounge aft and dining space central. Options include special gunwales that swing out on either side of the main deck to create terraces.
The dominant wood inside is Canaletto walnut, with its warm tones set off by satin-effect titanium ceilings or glass surfaces and cool colours.
