The next generation of Riviera Flybridge cruisers has arrived. The Riviera 51 Enclosed Flybridge cruiser features an internal staircase to make access to the flybridge even easier and more comfortable. The staircase is built into the starboard aft quarter of the saloon and features teak inlaid steps for secure footing.
Building on the company’s 25 years of experience in pleasure boat building, the Riviera 51 Enclosed also adopts the new hull design that was introduced with the launch of the Riviera 33 Flybridge Convertible in 2004. A tunnel hull design by noted superyacht designer Frank Mulder allows the propeller shafts to deliver more efficient power to improve both performance and economy. The exhaust outlets are located below the waterline, creating a quieter system that also reduces exhaust gases.
Wrap-around windows in the enclosed GRP flybridge are made from toughened glass and three wipers on the windscreen aid visibility in wet weather. The forward helm position with a fully array of electronic controls provides the skipper with a sweeping view of the waters around, while an aft docking station that includes steering and electronic controls makes reversing the boat a breeze.
Reverse-cycle air conditioning with outlets at the helm and windscreen for demisting ensure year-round comfort while an L-shaped lounge to port behind the helm seat will accommodate up to five guests.
The Riviera 51 Enclosed Flybridge cruiser shares the interior layout and accommodation of its sister 51 Flybridge Convertible, providing a master stateroom starboard amidships with en-suite bathroom and a guest stateroom forward. A cabin portside is fitted with a twin bunk and there is a second bathroom on the port side.
