The Riva Corsaro 20, with its excellent navigability, is boat building artistry at its very best.  
This vessel made history in the world of boating as one of the finest models created by the legendary brand known as Riva (now part of the Ferretti Group).
It is a GRP planing yacht with a flybridge and spacious “super yacht” style upper deck.
The arrow shaped prow gives it a sporty, streamlined profile. The design team created a secondary aft deck with a wine fridge, polished table and banquette seating.  
The vessel features large polished steel framed windows offering panoramic views from the saloon. The stainless steel porthole covers are unusually heavy and exquisitely designed. The steel work alone is testament to the extraordinary engineering ingenuity of the Riva brand.
Whilst compact, the galley is a most attractive and very efficient space with a 4 burner glass hob, electric oven, double refrigerator and separate freezer.  
“Volare”, means “to fly”, and this vessel most certainly does exactly that!  
It is an exceptional example of an Italian super boat and a true testament of time, class and style.
Distinctive with her new bimini and matching cushions in the accent colour of the Riva brand – aquamarine.  She truly is an eye catcher on the water.

Owners do not share their space with the crew.  There is a separate double cabin set in the deck cleverly incorporating a shower, handbasin and toilet.
The current owners have spared no expense to achieve an exquisite refit.  The vessel has retained the original elegant interior features such as raw silk and Alcantara upholstery. The burr walnut cabinetry is in exceptional condition.   The Massimo Vignelli designed silver tableware still resides in the fitted cabinets. As do the crockery and glassware by Rosenthal.
The salon table can be extended to accommodate 6 diners with an additional leaf that is stored beneath the banquette seating.  

This stunning example of a world re-knowned model has undergone the following work between 2019 and 2021 in readiness for her next owner:
