Riva 100’ Corsaro is the result of collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the Product Strategy Committee guided by Piero Ferrari and Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group, said: “The audience at the Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo, the most famous coastal location in the Formula 1 World Championship, was completely taken with the majestic elegance of the new Riva 100’ Corsaro. The presentation of this incredible, innovative yacht was an event-in-the-event: the port of Monaco and the Yacht Club de Monaco were dressed in Riva style.
“The 100’ Corsaro is a beautiful yacht in terms of design and proportions, elegant and powerful at the same time. It is a true wide-body that combines large volumes large volumes with an incredible attention to details. It is already a best-seller without rivals on the market. The 100’ Corsaro 100’ was Scuderia Ferrari’s lucky charm: Riva, an official sponsor, and Ferrari celebrated the Monaco Grand Prix win, the first in 16 years.”
The award-winning Riva 76’ Perseo, Riva 76’ Bahamas and 88’ Florida were also showcased alongside the 100’ Corsaro.
The Riva logo was shown on the helmets of the Maranello-based team from Ferrari with drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen, who finished in first and second at the competition.
Galassi commented: “We are ardent to see Riva with Ferrari, the most famous Italian brand, in the 2017 Formula 1 World Championships. This extraordinary combination of two absolute icons, Riva and Ferrari, together celebrated the victory of the 75th edition of the Monaco Grand Prix, renewing a connection between manufacturers that has no equal in terms of history, popularity and ability to perpetuate its supremacy.”
