BMBM | THE ULTIMATE RIVIERA

50 ENCLOSED FLYBRIDGE | AN ENTIRELY NEW RIVIERA HAS ARRIVED


Riviera staged the world release of the most modern, sophisticated and elegant cruiser in its class, the new 50 Enclosed Flybridge in August 2013. The design as always was based on boat owner input, gleaned and distilled over the past two years at specifically held owner forums. The new 50 Enclosed Flybridge is proving equally enticing as her big sister, the 53 Enclosed Flybridge. Powered by a choice of Cummins Zeus or Volvo Penta IPS POD Drives, Riviera's new 50 Enclosed Flybridge was created in-house utilising Unigraphics 3D software. Riviera’s team of talented international, passionate designers and engineers have focused on absolute maximisation of design and space. They have been able to see the exact size, space and scale of the vessel in the computer long before a single piece of material is cut for the plug work. Riviera’s design team have also retained that unique Riviera look while introducing some exciting new innovations. New double side transom doors allow better access to or from the cockpit from both the port and starboard sides. There is new cockpit seating with an integrated table and enhanced cockpit storage with a central molded lazarette bin that has been integrated into the cockpit floor. Tender storage is on the boarding platform, side deck access has been enhanced, a new large aft C-shaped lounge runs the width of the flybridge are some of the many new and exciting design features of the new 50.

An internal staircase adjacent to the galley leads up to the impressive three-sided enclosed flybridge which features a helm station forward on the port side with an adjacent L-shaped lounge allowing guests to easily converse with the skipper. A wet bar is located behind the helm chair and aft in the flybridge is an enormous L-shaped lounge that runs almost the full beam of the flybridge, making it a great conversation and entertaining space not only when the boat is underway but also at anchor. The vision from the enclosed flybridge is second to none.

1 and 2. The ergonomic L-shape helm station has been created as a true command centre for the 50 Flybridge. All key instruments and controls are located within comfortable arms reach of the skipper. Twin helm chairs and an L-shape lounge on the starboard side allow guests a good forward view whilst underway. 3. The 3-sided enclosed flybridge is a real sky lounge. At anchor or in the marina, there is 360 degree visibility from the forward and rear seating positions. The rear lounge and wet bar area create a very functional and different entertaining area for when the weather or mood requires an alternative venue to the saloon. The flybridge is certainly a very versatile space. The flybridge is sealed off from the saloon by a water-tight and lockable hatch.

The accommodation plan of the 50 offers new-found flexibility, whilst the two aft cabins offer full head room in very generously proportioned spaces. Externally there are many attractive enhancements to the profile lines providing balance to the flybridge and saloon window profiles and large hull windows with opening port holes on both sides giving the two aft cabins an abundance of natural light and fresh air. The new 50 Enclosed Flybridge features a huge cockpit with aft barbecue centre or optional bait tank or fish bins. The barbecue is located aft in between the transom doors which give easy access to the 50, especially when rafted up with friends or when docked at the marina. The cockpit seating has been designed to allow for a fridge, freezer and ice box to be positioned between the galley window and cockpit seat. There is also an optional removable table opposite the cockpit lounge which can be relocated depending on entertaining requirements. The table can be positioned in front of the cockpit lounge when enjoying a lazy breakfast with the best view in the world or one table leg can be lifted and repositioned by turning the table 180 degrees so that a group of people can sit around the table for a larger social gathering on board.

1. The cockpit floor area is expansive and when the twin transom doors are opened it creates one giant-sized entertaining area around the central BBQ module. Good weather and sun protection are afforded to the cockpit lounge and mezzanine step by the flybridge overhang and the optional cockpit awning. 2. The starboard side joystick and engine controls are discreetly hidden from view and the weather behind a fold-out GRP cover. 3. The module located on the starboard side of the mezzanine houses a sink with lid, icemaker and a solid surface bench top to match the galley to provide shaded bench space for cockpit entertaining. 4. The central barbecue centre located in the middle of the transom has transom doors located either side to effectively enlarge the cockpit space and provide ease of boarding from either side.

Two steps up from the cockpit and you enter the saloon through the full-length sliding glass door. To port there is a huge U-shaped modern galley with polished Corian solid surface benchtop, high quality stainless steel appliances and accouterments and luxe timber vinyl flooring. Forward of the galley is a U-shaped lounge and dinette to port and plush lounge to starboard. In the middle of the starboard side lounge there is an ottoman that slides out and across to the port side to provide additional table seating. An optional table then can be folded out of the ottoman recess in the starboard lounge to create additional seated dining capacity for up to 10 people.

1. The rear galley on the port side boasts ample bench space and thanks to the ingenious awning window, creates a seamless link between the saloon, galley and cockpit. It helps bring the great outdoors in, so every guest onboard feels included in the party regardless of their location. With this extremely sociable design, there can be guests seated in the saloon area perhaps watching TV on the dash concealed raising screen, the galley gathering – preparing the next nautical feast whilst a further group of guests maybe outside keeping the BBQ master-chef motivated. All three groups are visually and physically connected through these three spaces. 2. Abundant storage, softclose drawer runners, stainless steel appliances, ample drawer refrigeration, practical splash backs and a generous footprint make this galley a real centrepiece. 3. Opposite the galley is additional refrigeration and freezer space, bar storage and the nerve centre of the 50, the C-Zone digital switching panel. From here all of the vessels systems can be controlled and programmed at the touch of a finger. 4. The conversation hub of the 50 is the C-shaped lounge and dinning area to port and the settee opposite. From the seated position here, you have clear sight lines for 360 degrees.

In a first for Riviera, there is the option to have the master stateroom forward or aft on the port side. The aft port side option offers a scenic outlook from the large hull window with optional opening porthole. This location for the master stateroom is in a quieter and more stable part of the boat being closer to the center of gravity. The full-width master stateroom forward option boasts hull windows either side, ample under bed storage, an elegantly crafted cedar-lined wardrobe, built-in bedside tables and a timber vanity. With the option to select the master stateroom location you have the added bonus of a VIP guest stateroom that is every bit as luxurious as the master. Your friends and family will relish this new level of comfort. This of course means that the new 50 is also the perfect size for three couples or a large extended family. Yet for all the 50's enormous internal volume and space it will easily fit into a standard size marina berth with a hull length of 16.15m (53' 1") and beam of 5.01m (16' 5").

1. The forward stateroom can be selected as either the master or VIP guest. Optional hull windows can be added to bring into view the water infused landscape. 2. The starboard side cabin features twin adult size beds. 3. The aft port stateroom can either be the master or VIP guest. Both the the starboard and port aft cabins feature generous size port lights and opening port hole bringing abundant light and fresh air below.

From the moment you step aboard the new 50 Enclosed Flybridge, you instantly enter a world of the most modern technology encased in time honored craftsmanship. The Riviera design team has been very innovative with the internal plan providing exceptional accommodation without compromising the height or exterior profile lines of the boat. Externally, she is a very handsome boat indeed. Acoustic fabric paneling creates a sense of calm and combined with satin varnished teak and American oak cabinetry gives a feel of contemporary elegance. An optional washer/dryer is concealed behind varnished cabinetry in the staboard aft cabin. Step below to the accommodation deck and you will sense immediately just how large this area is. An additional 1.7 meters more of overall living space between the bow and stern has been made available through the utilisation of pod drives as compared to a similar sized shaft-driven boat. All round this boat feels bigger and fuller than similar sized vessels, which can be attributed to the openness and an abundance of natural light.

1. The port side bathroom. Generous bench top space, storage and shower stall size are key design features. 2. The C-Zone control panel area to starboard features a shelf with fiddle to contain phones, charges, tablets, keys and glasses that always seem to never have a dedicated onboard home. 3. Detailed joinery featuring teak and American oak give a very appealing finish to the accommodation space. 4. The forward stateroom ensuite bathroom 5. The starboard guest cabin also features space for a concealed washer/ dryer unit. 6 and 7. The starboard settee is ingenious with its optional pop-up table.

From a technological point of view, the 50 Enclosed Flybridge features the latest in LED lighting and C-Zone digital switching, which allows you to control and monitor all your entertainment, electronics and lighting with a single button displayed on a touch screen. Every engineering detail in the design and construction of this new model has been considered from the engine room with standing head room and its gleaming white gel coat finish making it spotlessly clean, to the location of the cockpit switch panel at eye-level. The dawn of an entirely new luxury boat has arrived. This striking new design is unlike any flybridge boat created. A vessel of immense strength that through its superior hull shape truly honours the offshore tradition of Riviera with a reassuring, solid feel. At every turn, the new Riviera 50 will ignite your boating dreams.

1 and 2. The vast engine room of the 50 is a marvel of engineering excellence. It is here that you see instantly the world-class standard of construction for which Riviera is justifiably famous for in more than 60 countries. This space has full headroom and all componentary is easily accessed for visual checks and regular servicing. Access around the engines is excellent. The gelcoat finish is is easy to clean.

We’ve been on a couple of the Experience trips and there’s a real safety aspect of going offshore and being around other Riviera owners, who know their boats and your boat too.” And one more … “Riviera goes over and above all expectations to make sure owners enjoy a great experience for the entire life of their boats. That lifelong commitment is something that really makes a difference.” Yes, they are glowing endorsements and they are all from long-time Riviera owners who share something truly unique – they share the truly unrivalled “Riviera Experience”.
