FUN AND FUNCTION
The foredeck table seats six to eight guests. From there, it’s one step up to the sun pad for four guests. There’s also unobstructed access to ground tackle. 2,638 hp MTU 16V M96Ls are optional. With standard power, Riva reports a 30-knot cruise speed and a 36-knot top hop. The bigger diesels reportedly bump up cruise speed to 32 knots with a 38-knot top hop. Range at cruising speed is 340 nautical miles or 350 nautical miles, respectively. ¶ Maximizing the yacht’s outside real estate, Riva created multiple alfresco social zones. Starting at the foredeck, there’s a sun pad. Abaft the sun pad is a U-shaped lounge. The flybridge has another sun pad positioned far aft on centerline. A dining table with U-shaped seating is on centerline in the 236-square-foot cockpit. A bar with two stools, located forward and to starboard, is optional. And then there is the nearly 65-squarefoot beach club. The swim platform can also be lowered to launch and retrieve a tender. ¶ Inside, the floor plan is open from the cockpit doors to the two-seat helm that’s forward and to starboard. There is formal dining for eight to port. Cut-down bulwarks amidships provide ocean views out the glass superstructure when dining. ¶Accommodations on the 88 Folgore include a forepeak VIP stateroom, two double-berth guest staterooms abaft it to port and starboard, and a fullbeam master stateroom amidships. The master has three layout options, including head and walk-in closet placement as well as a desk/vanity area. ¶ Look for the Riva 88 Folgore to debut across the pond this fall.
