Aegean archipelago. The Med. The World. A literary myth, from the pen of Hugo Pratt, and a product line celebrating passion for sea, travel, freedom & speed. Bringing the spirit of the iconic sailor onboard, OLYMPIC RIBS is excited to announce a long-term, global partnership with CONG S.A., Switzerland, the guardians of the CORTO MALTESE® eminent heritage.
Unleashing the full potential of bespoke customization for luxury RIBs, this synergy will allow for a uniquely creative incorporation of the CORTO MALTESE® traits into the OLR line up.
Gearing up in H1 2023, the CORTO MALTESE® upgrade will be available for the OLR 30SR, 45SRC and 45SRC STERN DRIVES models, elevating the OLR model of choice to an exclusive asset: First Class onboard experience, outstanding offshore performance and – now – inclusive of the mesmerizing atmosphere of the classiest graphic novel ever written.

We are excited to embrace the CORTO MALTESE® philosophy and open new seaways together.”
Maurizio Distefano, president of Maurizio Distefano Licensing – the agency managing the CORTO MALTESE® rights in Italy – added: “When a brand and a licensee share the same values, a licensing project can truly write history. This makes us extremely eager to see the outcome of this pioneering and one-of-a-kind partnership between OLYMPIC RIBS and CORTO MALTESE®.
