Launch of Riva 88’ Folgore: just back from a journey into the future.

25 May 2020



La Spezia, 26th of May 2020 – Splendid and dazzling as its name implies, Riva 88’ Folgore immediately won the hearts and minds of those who saw it cut through the waves.
The most eagerly awaited vessel by Riva enthusiasts was launched on Monday, 25th May in La Spezia, where the production facility dedicated to the 76-to-110-foot models is based.

It is the first launch of a new Riva model at the time of Covid-19 and celebrates the non-stop activity of all shipyards, confirming Ferretti Group in its role as a tenacious and solid builder of dreams and emotions.

“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.” - Commented Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group. “The launch of the first new model in 2020 represents a new Renaissance for the Ferretti Group, which restarts from Riva, brand becoming more and more a contemporary myth, the essence of Made in Italy and a tangible sign of a Country that starts again."

Riva 88’ Folgore, the project of which was presented in January, perfectly complied with the deadline set for the construction time. 
The new exterior design philosophy displays lines and elements inspired by the automotive world, combining luxury and sportiness. 
In a happy balance between past and present, it combines the use of innovative materials like carbon with traditional stylistic elements such as mahogany inlays and steel decorations.

In the perspective of a design proposal that combines aesthetics and functionality, Riva 88’ Folgore offers the owner a completely reconceived stern concept, with the garage door that swings open and can be positioned in two ways: parallel to the waterline, to take advantage of a 6m²² beach club, and immersed, to allow the launch and landing of the tender. The cockpit, on the other hand, is a large space of 22 m² that features a huge sofa area with table and also a bar unit with electrically opening marble top.
Another interesting element of style is the glass hardtop located on the superstructure, which opens up and can be tilted toward both the stern and bow, to let in fresh air during navigation or when at anchor.
The interiors have also been extensively renewed in style, created using precious materials such as wood, steel, marble and glass. They feature a number of particulars, including the option of three different layouts for the master cabin.
The sleeping area is completed by a VIP cabin at the bow and two double cabins, each with its own bathroom. 
The area reserved to the galley remains separate, with a dedicated entrance to guarantee maximum service privacy.

Like all the Riva masterpieces of recent history, the 88’ Folgore is the result of the collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the studio founded by Mauro Micheli along with Sergio Beretta, the Product Strategy Committee headed by engineer Piero Ferrari, and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
