Discover the dual appeal of the Riva 88′ Florida superyacht
A stunning power yacht that combines high performance, Italian elegance and innovation in one, the Riva 88′ Florida reflects the yard’s DNA perfectly. Originally debuted in the United States at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in 2017, her contemporary exterior styling and technological advancements ensure this versatile, convertible superyacht remains in high demand.
Measuring 26.84 meters in length, her sleek hull features aerodynamic, sleek and sporty exterior lines that are enhanced by the ‘Shark Gray’ color with black accents. One of her key features is her convertible hardtop. The unique carbon fiber hardtop, first seen on her largest sister, the Riva 88′ Florida, ensures she can transform seamlessly from an open yacht into a sheltered sport coupe at the touch of a button. The aerodynamic roof moves in coupe mode to cover the flybridge and helm station, however, in open mode, it shifts before the windshield to become a cover above the forward dinette or covers the dinette completely.
The layout of her cockpit, helmstation, and her master suite on the lower deck and living spaces are all custom designed by Officina Italiana Design and the Ferretti Group Naval Engineering Department. Her modern interior decor is designed to capture a “strong Mediterranean cheerful and summer character,” featuring leather, stainless steel and white veneer throughout. The helm station is located forward and is equipped with two pilot seats, with a third seat on the left of the sliding hatch that leads to the lower deck. A salon area with seating is located behind the helm station, with a dining space that can seat up to eight guests. Opposite a wet bar is situated with a sink, grill and refrigerator. Aft, a large sundae with a chaise lounge for unwinding in the sun can be found, with dual steps leading to her swimming planform. Forward in the bow, an additional sun pad and dinette offer guests another space to relax. As previously mentioned, this space can be closed off by the c-hardtop when cruising.
Her galley is on the lower deck on the starboard side, with a dining area opposite. Her full-beam master ensuite is situated midships, with a VIP ensuite stateroom located forward and a twin guest ensuite stateroom located on the port side. Crew quarters for up to a crew of two are located before the engine room. To further optimize engineering and industrial processing, the engine room is a carry-over from the coupé, as is the layout of the crew cabin. Both can be accessed from the cockpit through a compartment built into the sofa on the left. Powered by twin VMan V12 engines, ensure she can reach a top speed of 37 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots.
