New Model: Riviera 53 Enclosed Flybridge

Riviera launched the latest 53 Enclosed Flybridge model at the second largest down under Sanctuary Cove boat show.  This latest Riviera designed by in house naval architect Alex Dowd follows what we have seen with the previous new model the 43 Open Flybridge continuing the evolution of flybridge models inspired by the Sport Yacht range.  Looking like a Sportfish Yacht but may be the only thing game boat here is the free aft deck, as the 53 Enclosed Flybridge does offer amenities that are more for a normal motor yacht.  The interior of the 53 Enclosed Flybridge offers a three double cabins lower deck layout, with a crew cabin located to mid ship.  The master state room as the large windows suggest is located to mid ship and will also feature a walk-in wardrobe, beauty desk, and relaxing sofa.  The other two cabins are the VIP located to fore, and a bunk double berth located to starboard.  The saloon of the 53 Enclosed Flybridge also offers a convenient layout with a very practical astern galley, and a forward area with two settees.  An interior staircase leads to the top raised pilot deck, which will have a two seat helm station, C-shaped settee, and a small wet bar with galley.  Standard power for this latest generation Riviera 53 Enclosed Flybridge is three Volvo 435hp, with options coming from twin 900hp, or Cats 1015hp engines.  Propulsion is to be pods from both Volvo IPS forward dual propellers style used in triple units or larger latest 1200 series, or ZF aft looking units.
