Double SS Sliding glas doors provide entry from the 57 Rival’s spacious cockpit into the main salon. Along the starboard side is an L-shaped settee with a 27-inch television mounted forward in a cabinet that faces the cockpit. Cabinets line the lower half of the port side, including one panel for DC and AC circuit breakers.
When you walk forward, you step up to the galley and pilothouse area, where steps lead up to the flybridge. The galley is nicely equipped with a full-size upright refrigerator, a three-burner stove, a microwave oven and a sink with a Moen faucet.
Under the companionway steps from the main salon to the galley, you’ll find a large storage area and a secondary lockable engine room door. This pantry area does have some mechanical units, such as the air conditioner raw water pump, but it is primarily used for storage.
The adjoining engine room space is very well laid out, with lots of room to maneuver around both engines. The engines’ big raw water sea strainers look as though they’re on steroids, while the fuel filters are located abaft the engines for easy servicing.
Back in the pilothouse, the single helm chair has electronic adjustments and a dining table is located to port. The table has a pullout wing, so you can pivot the helm chair for use at the table.
The helm has ample space to mount large-screen electronics, and the gauges are mounted up high on the helm, out of the way. One nice touch is that both the water and holding tank gauges are easily visible at the helm.
There is a starboard side door in the pilothouse, so that you can walk up to the foredeck or side to load guests, if you have boarding steps on the dock. You will not have any difficulties walking up to the foredeck, which is protected by stainless steel rails up to the pulpit.
On the flybridge, there is abundant seating, with forward-facing U-shaped settee under the radar arch, a two-person skipper’s bench on the starboard side and a single aft-facing seat next to the steps to the pilothouse. Abaft the radar arch was a hydraulic davits and a dinghy cradle.
Smaller improvements include mounting the Glendinning Cablemaster toggle switch up near the top of the transom for easier reach and incorporating a wireless remote control for the stereo speakers in the cockpit, on the bridge and in the modern designed stateroom.
Belowdecks accommodations include three staterooms and two heads. Forward is a stateroom, a portside bunkroom and a starboard-side head compartment. A washer and dryer are located at the bottom of the stairs in the companionway, with a hanging locker within arm’s reach.
The master stateroom has its own private entrance in the forward starboard corner of the main salon. Because the master is amidships and is full-beam, it is extraordinarily large. This cabin has its own head and a sit-down vanity.
The two main staterooms offer plenty of storage; with large hanging lockers and drawers under the berths. The bunk-bed room would be great for kids or this cabin could easily be transformed into onboard office space, for those wanting to work onboard.
Navigator’s 57 Rival handled well throughout sea trial tests in reviews, turning in a solid performance — and the amenities are comfortable and well thought out in their design. She is surely a well-built boat that can go almost anywhere without fear.
The Galley is three steps up form the salon and like most homes, the center of activity. The entire pilothouse/galley is finished with a cherry hardwood product.
The galley is open with lots of stowage and all that you need for the best cruising experience available. Stove top, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, ice-maker, and Corian counter tops. The dining area is port of the wheelhouse controls.
This open galley / pilothouse / salon makes her feel considerably larger than other vessels of this size.
There are two points of entry to this mechanics dream of and engine room. First, the typical cockpit access just forward of the steering bar. Second, access hatches which open to the utility room forward of the engines. The owner specified both a lifting staircase and additionally a floor access hatch so any extra equipment, could be installed and serviced easily.
In fact everything below decks is easily accessed, including the outboard sides of the engines. Overhead in the engine room are two removable hatches that can allow a motor or generator to be removed without the typical cutting and reconstruction associated with lesser quality yachts.
The Navigator 57's bow flare is designed for cutting through swells in the sloppiest seas. The boats leakproof flush-mounted windows -- which are sealed in the inner mounting, without any trim on the exterior -- gives the boat a very clean look, and they easily wash down with a brush.
