Optional accommodation layout
The standard accommodation offering is four cabins and three bathrooms with the master stateroom amidships, a guest stateroom forward, and two cabins on the starboard side. An optional layout offers three cabins and three bathrooms, with a larger VIP stateroom forward, with the choice of either a private lounge or a writing bureau in place of the fourth cabin.

Internal staircase
The internal staircase is designed to connect the flybridge and saloon as one space, making access to the flybridge both safe and comfortable in all weather conditions or at any time of the day.

Enclosed flybridge
The fully enclosed flybridge includes a flowing lounge along the port side for the cruising comfort of guests. The aft viewing deck has a lounge and is connected with the flybridge interior through a lockable stainless steel awning window and door. Opening side windows and an electric sunroof brings natural light and fresh air to the enclosed flybridge - truly the best of both worlds.

Saloon
A large L-shaped lounge is forward of the galley, which is opposite the internal staircase. A liquor cabinet with bar fridge, icemaker and electric lift glass storage feature is located in the cabinetry under the staircase. A six-seat dinette is opposite the lounge.

Mezzanine seating
This provides a great viewing platform to watch the game fish action, and creates another outdoor lounging area. The cockpit is designed with wraparound side deck steps to enhance access to the forward deck. For Riviera, the creation of the 63 Enclosed Flybridge was an opportunity to utilise our knowledge, talent and technology in new and exciting ways.

Riviera 63 Enclosed Flybridge

Engineered excellence

In engineering terms the 63 Flybridge is a shaft drive configuration, and base power is twin 1150hp Caterpillar diesel engines with a fuel capacity of 5,700 litres (1,731 US gallons).

The 63 Flybridge incorporates the latest technology including state-of-the-art digital switching for all DC electrical components, using the proven C-Zone CAN bus system to create fingertip control of electronic functions. At the touch of a 10 inch LCD screen - positioned in a cabinet at the base of the flybridge staircase - a multitude of pre-set functions can be activated. Whether you are at sea or in party mode at the marina, the C-Zone digital switching system will present a specific menu offering control of all necessary functions. Of course, C-Zone allows for manual override so owners can customise the system to suit their personal requirements.

The 63 Flybridge is a seaworthy, highly capable long-range offshore vessel. Riviera’s in-house designers have created a superbly running boat.

The hand-laminated fibreglass hull offers a very solid feel offshore, thanks to Riviera’s legendary construction method and a deadrise of 12.5 degrees.

The saloon in the sky

Overlooking the cockpit is the spacious enclosed flybridge, featuring forward helm and aft docking station. The open flybridge option features an aft helm with a U-shaped lounge forward of the helm and around a convertible table with a settee opposite.

The enclosed flybridge features a hinged awning window and glass door that both open to bring outdoors in creating a large unified space. Wrap around seating to port features folding arm rests with functional storage underneath and a drop down dinette table. This is a truly luxurious sky lounge.

The upholstered wrap around forward helm can accommodate up to three 12 inch displays. Air-conditioning ducts can be vented against the windscreen to demist the glass in humid conditions. Opening side windows feature positive seals and deep drainage slots. Night-time privacy can be assured with retractable venetian blinds. And throughout the 63 energy saving LED lighting illuminates this social space with a warm ambiance.

The aft docking station is located to the starboard side of the external flybridge door with excellent visibility of the cockpit and aft quarters of the boat.

To port an aft-facing lounge accommodates two people who wish to escape attention indoors, or talk privately while the party continues below in the cockpit.

Relaxing made easy

The very large main saloon is bright and airy, with 360 degree tinted windows and offering views from every seating angle and position. This is the social hub of the vessel. However, the party is not constrained to stay just indoors. The 63 Flybridge has taken many design cues from the much larger Riviera 75 and has incorporated social seating into the cockpit, which is no longer the sole domain of the sports fisherman.

The cockpit now doubles as an alfresco dining experience, with optional opposing fore and aft facing mezzanine seating either side of a solid teak table. The mezzanine also contains a fridge and storage space. A full barbecue centre with sink, rubbish bin and storage is located centrally within the transom, sealed from the weather when underway but creating an entirely different focus for the party at day’s end.

The practicalities of a sport fisher with fully optioned fighting cockpit are enhanced with features like below deck self-draining fish bins, game chair mounting plate solidly glassed into the cockpit floor, and recessed toe kicks. An extensive options list covering rod holders, live bait tank wells, outriggers, single side mount Palm Beach engine control levers, which are a favourite with sport fishermen, ensures the full versatility of the 63.

The galley is positioned aft, adjacent to the saloon bulkhead, and separated from the large sociable cockpit space by a hinged awning window and full glass door. The result is an extension of light and space from outside in, with guests easily able to converse with whoever is in the galley.

Galley appliances comprise high quality s/steel combination microwave and oven, efficient induction cooktop and slimline dishwasher are installed within the U-shape galley, set to port and out of the way of the main fore and aft traffic corridor. A huge working area set atop a solid surface benchtop features an underslung stainless steel sink, an enclosed waste bin, dedicated cup, plate, pot and cutlery drawers and ample storage. Forward of the galley, also to port, and an L-shape lounge with dinette table with seating capacity for four plus two.

Opposite the galley to starboard there is a bar area with ice maker and fridge set under ergonomically raked flybridge stairs, with solid teak treads nested on flawless tig-welded stainless steel supports.

A special feature of the saloon bar is an electric lift glassware cabinet which retracts into the varnished cabinetry while under way, yet rises to the occasion at the touch of a button. Powered by whisper quiet drive technology, the cabinet features LED backlit shelving.

Forward of the bar there is a spacious U-shape lounge and dinette, with seating for up to 12, well positioned to take advantage of the large TV mounted on the forward dash.

Recessed grab rails are set into the head-liner, as is an overhead storage locker, while airconditioning is ducted almost invisibly from behind a varnished timber facia panel that runs virtually the full length of the saloon.

Sleeping more soundly

At day’s end, the master suite will be a haven for weary travellers. Acoustically shielded using a blend of soft fabric panelling, wool carpeting and visually stunning high gloss timber, the 63 Flybridge now features a flood of light and from a massive horizontal fixed port mounted in the hullside.

Comprising fixed laminated safety glass and optional opening porthole handcrafted from stainless steel and wired to the boat’s ignition alarm system, for peace of mind, the sleekly designed hull window bring a flood of light and fresh air into the master suite.

The master suite features a queen sized bed aligned fore and aft and takes advantage of the large port light while a host of cleverly engineered features make storage of luggage and clothing easy.

Proven whisper quiet technology electrically lifts the base of the queen sized bed to reveal a spacious step-down storage locker, with large soft-close drawers. Cedar-lined hanging lockers and bedside drawers complement a cabin that includes its own ensuite, with shower cubicle, vacu-flush toilet, raised porcelain sink and solid surface bench top.

The VIP guest cabin features a queen size island bed and offers its own ensuite with ample drawer and hanging locker storage. An optional three cabin layout is available with extra space absorbed by the VIP guest cabin, to include a private lounge or a writing bureau. The optional laundry accommodates washer and dryer, either totally enclosed behind cabinetry or mounted below a bunk in the starboard aft cabin. The fabric lined companionway and stairway link the accommodation space with the main saloon and create a very warm and welcoming feel to the accommodation deck.
