Riva Florida motor yacht Sola sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 26.84 metre convertible hardtop motor yacht Sola has been sold with Mike Newton-Woof at Ventura UK acting for both buyer and seller.
Designed by Officina Italiana, Sola was built in GRP by Italian yard Riva and delivered in 2016 as a Florida 88’ model. An interior featuring tasteful leather upholstery accommodates eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and two twins. All cabins have LCD television screens and en suite bathroom facilities.
Living areas are filled with light, thanks to the extensive use of glass and there is a large saloon below with comfortable seating for up to 10 guests plus a state of the art entertainment centre including a flatscreen television set. Outside, the aft cockpit comes with al fresco dining facilities along with sun pads.
The Florida 88 features an impressive convertible hardtop that swings into its storage recess on the foredeck. Two electro-hydraulic arms emerge from the sides of the forward coach roof, pivot backwards, pick up the cockpit roof, lower it into its storage position over the seating area on the foredeck, then tuck themselves back into their respective stowage pods.
Her top speed is 38.5 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 340 nautical miles at 34 knots with power coming from twin 2,435hp MTU 16V2000M93 diesel engines.
Sola was asking €5,500,000 with VAT paid.
