The brand new 88′ Florida by Riva is a Coupé but with the freedom of an open. Oozing with style and elegance, packed with power and speed, made possible by the latest technology.
This is a Yacht like no other!
Riva bring their classic lines and timeless beauty to the fore, then couple it with impressive technology and innovation in the convertible top. Usually reserved for the automotive world this innovation brings the yacht of the future, to you today.
A tough engineering and design challenge has resulted in an all new way of enjoying life at sea. An Innovative ‘Moon Grey’ shade that naturally enhances the yachts sleek lines is complimented with ‘Bright Black’ shade details.
This new craft has a 26.84-meter (88 ft. 1 in.) overall length and a beam of 6.22 meters /20 ft. 5 in.).
The hull is unmistakable, with continuous glazing housing the classic Riva logo in the centre. Completing the look is the elegant windshield and steel roll bar.
The convertible feature is amazingly controlled by one single button, making it effortless to operate. Sensors are located near all moving parts ensuring the safety of everyone on board when the conversion is taking place. A touch screen display in the pilot station provides the captain with complete control at all times.
An fabulous convertible Top
The hard top has been expertly crafted to fit in perfectly with the deckhouse shape and the sporty windshield and roll bar.
When stored forward and closed the top is held in place by it’s arms, locking to the main body of the yacht.
Once in Coupé configuration the top is locked to the windshield and roll bar by means of an electro-hydraulic anchoring system.
The arms can then be disconnected and stored away safely in the deckhouse.
The garage to the aft of the yacht is only 20cm above sea level, it can hold an almost 4-meter tender and a Jet Ski beside it. Thanks to a pantograph movement the whole central area can be moved up to a meter in to the water, allowing you safe launching and haulage operations.
The new 88’Florida is equipped with high performance MTU engines, either with two MTU 16 V 200 M93, 2435 mhp (maximum speed of 38.5 knots) or with a more powerful configuration: two MTU 16 V 200 M94, 2638 mhp engines (maximum speed of 40.5 knots).
Warm Sophisticated Interiors
Indoors the yacht is iconic as you would imagine, drawing influences from classic Riva yachts of the 80’s and 90’s. Everything you could want from the interior is here including a TV screen hidden inside the desk which can be mechanically lifted or lowered. LED lights help brighten the cabins.
The interior finish is as innovative as the outside of the yacht with warm sophisticated elm in the new ‘Manopesca’ finish; a treatment which makes the wood look like fabric and appear soft to the touch.
Thanks to the wonderful creativity and endeavor of designer Mauro Micheli this craft is truly one of a kind. A yacht as elegant as this offering both Coupé and Open styles is truly a technological marvel, flawless in every department it is a sight to behold.
