New Riva 88’ Florida. Spiritual successor of the Riva Bahamas, 88’ Florida is a revolutionary yacht which perfectly blends an open and a coupé model into one single vessel. The hull # 1 will be completed and launched by the end of 2014, with its official world première scheduled in the first months of 2015. The 88’ Florida features a cutting-edge innovation with an exclusive Ferretti Group patent installed on this new project for the very first time. Convertible Top is the name of the innovative system, designed and developed by AYT&D in collaboration with the technical partners of the Group, Besenzoni Spa and Centro Stile Srl. It turns this model into a multifunctional yacht, “convertible” because it can be transformed into an open or a coupé with one single and easy movement. The convertible top offers three different functions into one single system, due to the function that handles the aerodynamic hard top into three different positions. This new project features excellent performance, with a choice opportunity of the engines by MTU. As the standard version, 88’ Florida is fitted with two MTU 16V 2000 M93, 2435 mhp, which allow reaching a maximum speed of 38.5 and a cruising speed of 34 knots, with a range of 315 and 340 nautical miles, respectively. As an alternative option, as in the case of hull number 1, 88’ Florida, can be fitted with two MTU 16V 2000 M94, 2638 mhp. This new project by Riva, with these engines, can reach a maximum speed of 40.5 knots and a cruising speed of 36 knots, with a range of 300 and 325 nautical miles, respectively (preliminary data).
