Riva 102’ Corsaro Super is more than a successor, it is the evolution of a success, driven by a clear design vision to explore, re-elaborate and augment. Faithful to the sporty, streamlined lines of its predecessor, the latest addition to Riva’s flybridge range has an unmistakable profile, even more elegant and decisive: masterful brushstrokes of dark colour, from the large window that runs along the entire hull to the design of the hard top, create new modern, fluid and harmonious lines, giving life to a boat with a completely new image.

Designed by Officina Italiana Design
With a length overall of 30.24 meters (99ft 3in) and a maximum beam of 6.70 meters (22ft 0in), Riva 102’ Corsaro Super is the result of collaboration between Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, founders of Officina Italiana Design, the Strategic Product Committee led by Piero Ferrari, and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
Among the standout new features of Riva 102’ Corsaro Super is the complete design makeover of the superstructure, based on a contemporary, sporty concept and more generous dimensions. The yacht’s distinctive silhouette reaches out like an arrowhead, giving her a sleek and assertive profile. Aft, new glass fashion plates improve the vessel’s aerodynamics.
Riva 102’ Corsaro Super: exteriors
The completely redesigned aft area, creating a full-fledged beach club that extends over more than 35 square meters and ticks all the boxes of owners in search of ever more contact with the sea and with nature in their relaxation area. The 15 square meter swim platform has been lowered, with lateral access to the cockpit on either side and an extra large, extra comfortable sun lounger in the center, hiding the entrance to the garage area. Two recessed doors, one on either side of the sun lounger, provide access to two large storage areas (280 liters each).
Riva 102’ Corsaro Super: main deck
The dominant wood in the main lounge is Canaletto walnut, which is set off in inimitable Riva style by polished surfaces that create a magnificent play of reflections in conjunction with the light entering through the extensive windows. The ceilings and floors are light in colour – satin-finish titanium-effect lacquer and fine wool carpet respectively – contrasting with polished black Marquina marble accents repeated the entire length of the yacht, from bow to stern.
The interior design of the main lounge and its arrangement are the result of meticulous restyling. Two layouts are available, each created to meet the different needs expressed by owners. In the standard version, the dining area with its generous table seating eight is aft, while the living space is the main feature of the central area in the boat. A second layout is also available, in which the living area, generous sofas and armchairs are near the entrance, creating a single continuous space with the outdoor relaxation area. The dining table, on the other hand, is located forward part of the lounge, near the galley situated aft on the same deck.
On the left side of the main lounge is the entrance to the large, elegant owner’s suite, which is full-beam and extends forward into the bow. This cabin is the crown jewel of the yacht, with windows redesigned and extended to two metres in length, amplifying the sense of space that is a distinctive feature of the widebody configuration and offering a breathtaking view on both sides of the yacht.
The refined minimalism of the interior decor in the master cabin is based on an alternation between the pale hues of the carpet, fabrics and upholstery, and the dark tones of the Canaletto walnut furniture and walls characterized by mirror-finish surfaces and cool colourways. The kingsize bed, with a black leather headboard and sides, is the standout feature in the center of the cabin, framed by black back-painted glass elements.
In the master stateroom, like the guest cabins on the lower deck, the style reprises the wood on the main deck, with chiaroscuro contrasts and mirror-finish surfaces creating plays of light and shade with the large windows on either side of the suite. As always, there has been a special focus on acoustic insulation in this area.
The guest areas are arranged into three VIP double cabins and a guest cabin with twin beds, all with ensuite bathrooms and all decorated with the elegant play on pale and dark colours that is a distinguishing feature of the yacht’s interiors. All the cabins have wardrobes, in addition to storage space hidden under both the bed and the bedside tables.
The flybridge, which is reached from the main deck via a steel staircase, can be furnished aft with sunbeds and freestanding furniture in neutral colours like pale grey. Further forward, and completely covered by the hard top, are the cocktail area – complete with a bar unit offering plenty of storage, a fridge, a grill, an optional icemaker and tall stools – and the alfresco dining area. On the starboard side is the second helm station, which has an integrated NSOevo3S navigation system with a 16-inch touchscreen display. The generous bow area, connected to the flybridge by a side walkway on the port side, offers 17 square meters of space fitted out with a large sunpad and a forward-facing panoramic sofa.
