New Model: Riviera 52 Enclosed Bridge

Riviera continue to update its line up and the 52 Enclosed Bridge sitting in the middle of its range, and entry level into motor yacht world is a shining example of the down under builder strengths.  That is creating comfortable cruising yachts with performance and sea keeping qualities matching those of sleeker looking vessels.  As many of the last decade Riviera's the 52 unites the cruising and the sportfishing world in a contemporary looking enclosed flybridge motor yacht. Much more a cruiser then a sportfisher, the 52 Enclosed Bridge offers intelligent accommodation solutions, see astern galley, internal staircase to the bridge, and a three cabin layout offered in two versions; master stateroom to fore, or two at midships port-side.  In the performance side the 52 Enclosed Bridge again captures a cruiser sensitivity of being powered by twin Volvo 725hp engine with IPS pod drive propulsion, delivering a respectful 32 knots max speed and 25 cruise.  Not bad considering the 25 tons dry or near to thirty loaded.
