The best of both worlds
Befitting a pleasure boat of this calibre, the Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge incorporates clever and convenient alfresco lifestyle concepts and ultramodern technology with luxurious appointments … not to mention enhanced serviceability, savvy storage and an exacting eye for detail from fit to finish that reminds you that she is nothing less than an Australian-built Riviera.
You will sense our hallmark passion for perfection from the moment you step onboard – double transom doors allow better access from both the port and starboard sides in effect adding the large swim platform to what is already a full-scale, no-nonsense cockpit and creating a walk-around transom lounge with additional storage bin for swimming and diving gear.
The swim platform, with lift-out stainless steel rails, also has a number of options to suit individual owner requirements, for example: custom rod holders and a bait preparation station can be fitted for the angler, as well as a 400kg hydraulic lift to assist with tender storage.
Owners have the option of a longer transom lounge, or even a live bait tank with glass front, depending on requirements.
In the floor of the 9.90 square metre (106’6”) cockpit are separate hatches – with stainless steel lock-downs – providing direct maintenance access to either of the pod drives, as well as a large, central, self-draining moulded lazarette locker to store cockpit furniture and water toys, and also deep fish bins to port and starboard.
Forward there is a comfortable three-seater cockpit mezzanine lounge to port – upholstered in high-quality weather-proof vinyl – and there is an optional integrated and interchangeable table to provide a versatile alfresco entertaining area, and which can also be converted to a day-bed.
Behind the cockpit lounge is a double-plated refrigerated cool box and self-draining recycling bin, as well as manual bilge pump access and lockable cabinet containing battery switches and AC/DC control board.
To starboard there’s lift-up lid with gas strut which reveals a double BBQ with stainless steel splashback and LED lighting, ice-maker, sink, solid surface bench top and even more storage – enough to impress even the most discerning chef.
The cockpit’s innovative joystick docking control is also starboard, although owners have the option of having it located on the port-side. This control is protected from the elements in its own enclosed fibreglass compartment.
Opening out and over the cockpit is the GRP hardtop, which can be extended even further with a stainless steel and acrylic canvas awning for faded protection from the sun and extremities. There’s also the option of a rear-mounted camera, should owners desire.
