This is a new Riviera cruiser in every respect. It features a wide range of technological innovations that take quality and integrity to a new level. This three cabin/three head cruiser is the first Riviera to be completely computer designed and computer moulded, ensuring even more accurate fit between hull, deck and flybridge components. The interior joinery has been coated by a high technology automatic varnish system that operates in an entirely dust-free environment and covers each panel with a precise coating. Finally, the swim platform and all of the hatches are made using Light Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) technology, a closed moulding system that ensures superior quality, consistency and strength of each component.

The interior layout, too, is breakthrough design for Riviera. The galley, dinette and lounge are all on one level. The U-shape galley in the aft port quarter is superbly equipped with a three-burner cooktop, convection microwave oven, two fridges and a freezer mounted under the solid surface benchtop. The dinette, immediately forward of the galley includes a sliding-top table that opens up to reveal storage for drink glasses. A 32-inch flat-screen television and Bose Lifestyle system provide the entertainment. Te entire saloon is, of course, air conditioned.

Access to the fully air-conditioned flybridge is via a wide staircase from the saloon with teak non-slip treads. The forward helm position with a companion chair face a full-beam-wide dash that can accommodate three full 15" monitors. A docking station in the aft of the flybridge makes reversing and docking the boat a breeze. Aft of the helm seats is an L-shape lounge and a table with further aft-facing seating behind.
