When our highly talented team of designers and engineers first set out to create a completely new Riviera – one befitting membership of our exclusive Flybridge collection – they immediately turned to our loyal legion of blue-water cruising aficionados. After all, who better to help steer Australia’s most-awarded builder of luxury motor yachts into exciting new waters than highly experienced members of our global family of Riviera yacht owners?
Now, after this comprehensive consultation process, we present to you the supremely seaworthy, technologically advanced and absolutely luxurious Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge. This new addition to our classic flybridge collection certainly does stand as testament to a growing worldwide affection for Riviera’s hallmark passion for perfection – she more accurately reflects the international standards nomenclature, and enhances Riviera’s competitiveness on the world stage. And while she retains the distinct indoor/outdoor characteristics for which Riviera is internationally renowned, the new 52 Enclosed Flybridge is much more than mere model refinement – in fact we’ve seized the opportunity to incorporate a wide range of standard inclusions that, in the past, might have been considered optional upgrades. Of course, this thoughtful consideration for our Riviera family of owners is a key part of our ethos of doing all we can to help our valued owners achieve … ‘the ultimate boating experience’.

The designers of the new 50 have created an extremely versatile design layout. There is a well-fitted-out cabin in the traditional bow location, and another equally well-fitted-out stateroom aft and to port. According to the builder, either can be the master, and based on time aboard we agree. Both staterooms have walk-around queen berths, both have hull windows and opening ports, both have an en suite head with a separate shower stall, both have plenty of storage and both have the same high-quality woodwork. The same soft-goods material is used in each space.
A third smaller cabin, to starboard of the mid-cabin, is well fitted out with twin berths.
Access to the vessel is off the swim step through either a port or starboard transom gate. The swim step, almost exactly at the same height as most docks, makes getting on and off the vessel safe, quick and easy. Riviera designers have put together an open-plan salon, taking advantage of the extra space created by having no deckhouse helm station. The interior, because of the substantial amount of window glass, is bright and cheery, and will remain so even on a dull day. Windowsill heights are low enough that anyone sitting at the U-shaped dining settee and table, or on the lounge across from it, can see outside without stretching or getting up. The U-shaped galley, positioned at the aft end of the salon, will be the focus of onboard entertainment. With the stainless steel–framed aft salon door pinned open, and the large, similarly framed, top-hinged glass window locked in the up position, the galley opens to the aft deck. The bar, directly across from the galley, not only allows the cook quick and easy access to wine and spirits for sauces and other cooking requirements, but also allows people on the back deck to grab a cold one without having to move through, or congregate in, the salon. The ease of access from the galley to the aft deck — well protected from rain or blazing sun by the extended salon roof — combined with the aft-deck barbecue center, will allow the cook, or the caterers, to easily prepare meals for more than a dozen people. Staterooms and heads are forward and down from the deckhouse. The stairway ends on a landing, or vestibule, like you will often see on much larger yachts, and access to all three cabins is off that vestibule.
Just under 60 feet LOA (though called a 50) she features three staterooms — two with queen beds (as noted previously) and the third with a pair of twins. By selecting a pod-drive system for the 50EFB, Riviera added 5 feet, 6 inches to the interior hull living space compared to the traditional shaft-drive system.
Lets not forget the bridge. Amazing helm and passenger layout allows the captain serious focus while under way. Quick peripheral advantages await the skipper. Friends and family can be seated aside facing aft within easy view for conversation and helpful advice about conditions. The bridge offers the ultimate qualities of a much larger motoryacht with features for cold drinks, dining, or just kicking back in style with uber comfort.
