New Riva Yacht 88' Miami

Italian yacht builder Riva has recently introduced its brand new 88' Miami yacht project. The 88-foot open air sportsyacht is the spiritual successor of the Riva Bahamas - the first model entirely penned by Riva designer Mauro Micheli.

The 88' Miami features the 'Convertible Top' system, an exclusive Ferretti Group patent, installed on this new project for the first time. Below is a video to see it in action:

"It is a demanding task to create further added value and design innovative concepts for an iconic brand like Riva, since any new model must be synonymous for the utmost excellence, absolute luxury, and unique style, all blended into the symbol of the Made in Italy boating industry worldwide", states Ferruccio Rossi, Ferretti Group's CEO.

The hull of the first 88' Miami will be presented in Regal Silver, a light shade of grey which has been used for the first time this year on Riva's flagship, the 122' Mythos

The interior deck layout features four cabins and four en-suite heads. A salon also displaying the function of a covered dinette characterizes this area. The style of interior decorations can be defined as vintage, reinterpreted in a more contemporary mood, a style concept which has inspired the choices by Officina Italiana Design, of the designers and of the architects of the Ferretti Group, aiming at recalling on the new project many elements of other successful models by Riva, in particular those of the 80s and 90s.

The 88' Miami is slated to have hull #1 completed and launched by the end of 2014, with its official world première scheduled in the first months of 2015
