Riva Yachts in Italy has launched the Riva 88’ Folgore, saying that even despite the Covid-19 pandemic, its shipyards are in a state of “nonstop activity.”

Folgore, which Riva translates as “lightning,” has exterior design inspired by the automotive world. Carbon and steel combine with mahogany inlays for the construction materials, and there’s a new stern design that lets the garage door sit at water level or be submerged.

The 236-square-foot cockpit has a sofa, a table and a bar with an electrically opening marble top. Up one level on the flybridge, the glass hardtop on the superstructure can tilt toward the stern or the bow, depending on where the owner wants natural airflow.


How many options are available for the master stateroom layout? Three. And, there are three ensuite guest staterooms as well.
