the ferretti group pioneers a style that offers the opportunity to appreciate a two-fold – open and coupe  – cruising experience. co-founder, and desinger mauro micheli, serigo beretta of officina italiana design and the company engineers create riva ’88 florida’ that includes a retractable top inspired by convertible coupes in the automotive industry. ‘the 88 florida is a dream come true, a jewel of italian yachting that we are delighted and excited to be presenting today’comments ferretti group’s CEO, alberto galassi. ‘we took up and won a tough challenge from an engineering, design, and production viewpoint, and today we can introduce the world to an unprecedented craft, that turns into reality a new way of enjoying life at sea. the 88’ florida writes a new chapter in riva’s story – an italian story that the world will, once more, fall in love with’.

the convertible top system



the italian yacht has a convertible top system, which rotates and slides the aerodynamic roof using a pantograph hydraulic mechanism with two arms that connect to the hard top. controlled by an electronic power unit, it ensures an uninterrupted movement of every component, and is monitored by sensors to ensure the safety of both guests and the crew during operation. at the rear, the ’88 florida’ includes a garage to occupy four meter jet skis and a banister system that sinks the yacht for launching operations. a light metallic ‘moon grey’ with ‘bright black’ shade details the ’88’ florida’  and is glazed with stainless steel plates and accents. the interior incorporates wood, steel leather and lacquered materials for the decor. the 88’ florida has two MTU 16 V200 engine options; – the M93 2435 mhp which can go 38.5 knots (70.3km/h) with a cruising speed of 34 knots and the M94 2638 mhp that can go 40.5 knots (75.1km/h) at a cuising speed of 35 knots. the project covers 88-footer’s two sporty models to come together in one single yacht.
