Riva reveals new flagship

Riva has extended its range of maxi yachts with the Riva 110, a new flagship in its fibreglass fleet.

The new yacht succeeds the Riva 100 Corsaro as the next generation model in the Italian brand’s restyled flybridge range.

A collaboration between Sergio Beretta and Ferretti’s engineers, the yacht promises to be a flybridge of boundless beauty and unprecedented elegance, it says.

The design of the hull has been fully refreshed and is now almost 112 ft (34 m) in length and a width of over 22 ft (7 m).

The exterior design builds on the untamed lines of the 110 Corsaro. Distinguished by her sporty profile, the hull of the Riva 110 boats an impressive glass wall and integrated portholes. On deck a stretched glass roof extends over the length of the entire living area constructed with panes nested in a stainless steel frame. A second window surrounds the wide body master suite as far as the nose of the bow, complementing the sleek design.

In addition, the raised bridge enjoys expansive front and side windshields. Two lateral fiberglass structures, finished with glass, reinforce the flybridge in the stern further accentuating the aerodynamic profile. A streamlined hardtop with an innovative asymmetrical design moulded glass and chrome inserts, completes the yacht and exemplifies the obsessive attention to the finest details.


As found on the Ferretti Yachts 850 and the Riva Corsaro 100, the stern includes a submersible hatch, featuring Ferretti Group’s innovative actuating system. Experts have already lauded the hatch with a victory at the 2016 Boat Builder Awards in Amsterdam.

The stern garage door opens and tilts down creating a generous beach club at water level. The platform may also be submerged to offer maximum enjoyment from the stern area. Once beneath the water, a lift opens the garage for practical and straightforward launches, choose to store a Williams 5050 or a jet ski with independent launches or enjoy staggered launches for larger tenders such as the Williams 565 and a jet ski.

The cockpit on the main deck features C-shaped sofa, table and chairs and leads into the main salon. An extensive open plan space enhances the convivial atmosphere and includes both a living and formal dining area. The deck features yet another elegant innovation, polished stainless steel frame supporting the superstructure and glass from top to bottom. This allows natural light to flood the three dimensional space creating a luxury loft open to the ocean on all sides.

As on the larger yachts the central zone serves to regulate the flow of crew and guests by keeping their circulation routes separate.

To the left is access to the guest area below desk and the main master deck suite. To the right is access to the bridge, the galley and the below decks crew cabins.

The left hand lobby offers access to the external companionway as well as the day head and stairs to the lower deck. It also leads to the wide body mater suite with a double bed located in the centre, the bathroom and the walk-in wardrobe facing the stern to enhance separation from the service areas, particularly the galley. The suite is finished on the right with an armchair and coffee table, an on the left with a spacious walk-in wardrobe and a desk with panoramic sea views.


The guest accommodation comprises 4 VIP cabins with vanity tables and en-suite bathrooms. The standard VIP cabin forward has twin beds and may accommodate on request, an additional Pullman bed.

The crew area in the bow consists of a captain’s cabin with en-suite bathroom and two additional single crew cabins each equipped with bunk beds and private bathrooms. Crew amenities also include a dinette complete with laundry facilities and a fully equipped galley

The engine room is accessed via the left-hand side of the cockpit passing first through the machine and systems room. This guarantees both increased privacy and safe accessibility, even during navigation, as well as reducing the noise in the cockpit to a minimum.


The sundeck of the Riva 110’ is striking in its sporty and innovative design. In the stern, the furnished open-air sundeck is enclosed by a mahogany handrail finished with stainless steel and polished carbon fibre. There is also a cocktail bar with two stools and an informal dining area with C-Shaped sofa, all naturally illuminated thanks to a glass skylight in the hardtop roof. The helm station is situated on the right side with co-pilot seats on the left.

The flybridge is not only accessible from deck through a sliding glass and steel hatch but is also linked to the foredeck through a side door on the left. This permits easy access to the facilities and offers practical crew access to on-board services.

The space is dominated C-shaped sofa opposite a centrepiece sunpad all designed to promote sociability. On request, it is possible to substitute the sunpad with a garage in which to store an additional tender or water toy with appropriate launching crane. On deck, freestanding furniture may also be accommodated to increase the flexibility of the space. 

Alternatively the owner may opt for a Jacuzzi with sliding integrated sun-pad covers. This conceals both the Jacuzzi pool and the mooring stations, offering guests the ultimate in refinement. On this model, the area is equipped with a practical stowage compartment.


The Riva 110’sports MTU 16V series 2000 M94 engines each outputting 2638 mhp. With this engine set up the yacht will reach a cruising speed of 23 knots and a maximum speed of 26 knots. The maxi yacht also benefits from zero speed and underway fins to which gyroscopic stabilizer may be fitted to maximise comfort, even when anchored.
