This blaze of brilliant style, this irresistible thunderbolt, is ready to seduce owners and devotees of the Riva legend around the world.
Riva 88′ Folgore is the new sportfly with a difference: potent and revolutionary with an almost sci-fi beauty, this is a yacht that is made to dazzle.
The magnetic allure of her design is all in the harmony between past and present, in the concept that unites innovative materials like carbon with traditional stylish features from mahogany inlay to decorative steel.
Like all the masterpieces in Riva’s recent history, the 88′ Folgore is a product of the partnership between Officina Italiana Design (the studio founded by Mauro Micheli with Sergio Beretta), the Product Strategy Committee headed by Piero Ferrari, and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
One thing you can always be sure of with a Riva is that you’ll have plenty of power in reserve. The 88ft Folgore may be 80 tons, but she has an impressive performance, with a top speed of 36 knots from the standard engines, or 38 knots with the larger option. That means a cruising speed of 30 knots and 32 knots respectively – which would be top speed for most similar sized boats. As for the ride, it’s blissfully smooth at anything up to force 3, and even beyond that this mighty machine will throw aside a modest sea with barely a murmur.
