First Riva 88 Folgore Launched

The Ferretti Group has launched the first Riva 88 Folgore model.

The 26.8 metre yacht was launched in La Spezia on Monday, May 25, marking the first launch of a new Riva model since the coronavirus outbreak began.

First presented at the boot Dusseldorf show in January, the project features automotive-inspired design penned by Officina Italiana Design, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department and Product Strategy Committee.

Combining luxury and sporty design, the yacht features a redesigned stern concept with a garage door that swings open to sit in two different positions; parallel to the waterline and immersed in the water to launch and retrieve the tender.

Elsewhere, the Riva 88 Folgore features a 22 square metre cockpit with a large sofa, table and bar unit with an electrically opening marble top.

A glass hardtop on the superstructure opens up to allow a fresh breeze into the boat during navigation or at anchor.

The customisable interior features three different master cabin layouts. The rest of the accommodation comprises a VIP cabin at the bow and two double ensuite cabins. The galley meanwhile is accessed via a dedicated entrance. Key interior materials include wood, steel, marble and glass.

Speaking about the new model, Ferretti Group chief executive, Alberto Galassi, said: “Riva 88’ Folgore looks like a vessel just back from a journey into the future: she is a dazzling flash of style, she is strength, she is performance, she is innovation.”

The first launch for the company “represents new Renaissance for the Ferretti Group,” he added.
