Ferretti Group splashes second Riva 88’ Folgore
Launched in La Spezia, the second unit of the flagship of Riva’s Sportfly range has been delivered to her owner.
The Ferretti Group has launched the second unit of its Riva 88’ Folgore, five months after the launch of the first unit in May.
The second unit of the new Folgore – Italian for lightning – slipped into the water in Ferretti Group’s La Spezia shipyard, where it builds models in the 76-110ft range and which has recently been used to hold private boat shows for customers wanting to visit new models.
The new flagship of Riva's Sportfly range, the 88' Folgore can hit 39 knots - in serious style.
Measuring 88ft 4in (26.92m) in length, the Folgore has a beam of 6.31m (20ft 8in) and is another collaboration between Officina Italiana Design – which designs the entire Riva range – Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee led by Piero Ferrari and its Engineering Department.
A new Riva is always a welcome occasion and this year the 88' Folgore - Italian for lightning - combines the sleekness and speed of a sport boat with the exquisitely finished exterior and interior spaces the brand is renowned for.
