When it comes to open yachts, this Riva 88 Florida takes the crown, offering sun, speed and style scaled up to the max. What constitutes an open yacht as opposed to an open cruiser? To me, an open yacht has an open cockpit and not only proper staterooms, but also dedicated crew berths. The next-biggest available on the market is at least 8 feet shorter, which might not sound like a lot, but it translates to a huge amount of extra volume. And, in this case, that extra volume is filled with Riva's one-of-a-kind styling.
