Over 100 international guests from Hong Kong, the Asia-Pacific area and from Europe attended the launch event of the new craft, with seven units already sold and the entire production for 2017 sold out as well.
The Riva 100’ Corsaro is the result of collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the studio founded by designers Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, which is exclusively responsible for the Riva fleet, along with the Product Strategy Committee and the Engineering Department of the Ferretti Group.
Alberto Galassi, CEO of the Ferretti Group, said: “The world début of the new 100’ Corsaro in Hong Kong fills us with pride and satisfaction. Riva has written another chapter in a remarkable history spanning 175 years, during which time it has established itself as one of the most prestigious symbols of Made in Italy design in America, as well as in Europe and Asia.
“It's no accident that we decided to introduce this model in Hong Kong, since the venue again attests to the success that Riva is enjoying on the Asia Pacific market, which is essential to our Group.
“This unique, important debut fully expresses our desire to tackle new challenges and reach new milestones, in the precious spirit we inherited from the inimitable genius who was Carlo Riva. We're sure that this baptism would have made him proud, because of the breath-taking beauty of the new model, the advanced technology it is equipped with, the great attention paid to detail in its design, and even the decision to introduce it in the Far East, since Carlo Riva was a pioneer of internationalising his brand on the world's major markets.”
