Riva 88 Florida unveiled

Thu 5 June 2014

This is certainly one of the biggest open top powerboats ever, and it's undoubtedly the first fully convertible powerboat to have a power opening roof.  the sight of the convertible hardtop on the 88 Florida lifting off and swinging into its storage recess on the foredeck will surely leave onlookers open-mouthed.  Two electro-hydraulic arms emerge from the sides of the forward coachroof, pivot backwards, pick up the cockpit roof, swing it forward, lower it into its storage position over the seating area on the foredeck, then tuck themselves back into their respective stowage pods – click this link to see it in action.  She may be open-topped, but inside the 88 Florida is a serious motor yacht, with four beautifully styled en suite cabins and a lower deck saloon. The hull windows of the Riva 86 Domino from which she is derived have been substantially developed, resulting in even more daylight throughout all parts of the lower deck.
