The safety, comfort and performance of any vessel is contingent on the design and manufacture of the hull, and this is particularly important with large, long-range vessels as they are more likely to encounter big seas and challenging conditions.
The Riviera 75 falls into the serious long-range category (the 8,000 litre/2,110 US gal fuel tank is a testament to this) and we have created a hull that is more than up to the task.
It is a hand-laid structure featuring solid fibreglass below the waterline and a watertight collision bulkhead forward; and the extensive use of lightweight, cored bulkheads throughout the hull provide exceptional structural integrity with minimal weight. Issues of durability and access for maintenance have also been carefully considered in its development.
As for performance, this is a dream hull. It is as racy and responsive as it is robust and reliable. Features like tunnels that house the propeller shafts contribute to a lower shaft angle that delivers impressive thrust, is quick to plane and offers a smooth, dry ride.
Engine options range from standard twin diesel Caterpillar C32 (1,156 bkw/1,572 mhp) to twin diesel MTU 12v Series 2000 M93 (1,340 bkw/1,823 mhp). So the choice is really somewhere between exhilarating and absolutely thrilling.
