The Riva 88’ Folgore is the heir to one of the legendary brand’s best-selling models.
It is defined principally by two simple yet striking lines running along its profile – very much reflecting Officina Italiana Design’s spare, clean design philosophy. The new yacht also slots effortlessly into Riva tradition without in any way compromising the Sarnico yard’s signature historic styling elements. In fact, to continue the new Riva look, Folgore sports several styling cues that were created specifically for the Dolceriva. These include most notably the slight reverse-angle of the windshield and the hull windows that sweep along its silvery flank like a deft upward black pencil stroke. Brand-new, however, is the hatch that can either open out parallel to the waterline as a 6 sqm beach club or submerge to launch and retrieve the tender. Another innovative styling element is the glazing in the superstructure, which also opens out both award and forward.
The interiors are elegant and refined with ceiling heights of almost two metres throughout. They are characterised by a carefully measured mix of woods, leathers and steel. A combination that features on both the main and lower decks, creating a sense of seamless continuity in the styling. A choice of three different layouts is also available for the sublimely elegant 20 sqm master suite.
