Riviera Announces it's Stunning New 50 Enclosed Flybridge

'CAD design technology enables Riviera designers to consider every minute detail in the design process'    Stephen Milne    Click Here to view large photo

Riviera, Australia’s largest and most awarded luxury boat builder has just officially released details of the most modern, sophisticated and elegant cruiser in its class, the new 50 Enclosed Flybridge.

This stunning new model is currently under construction and will make her world debut in 2013.


The design as always is based on boat owner input, gleaned and distilled over the past two years at specifically held owner forums. The new 50 Enclosed Flybridge is expected to prove equally enticing as her big sister, the 53 Enclosed Flybridge.

Powered by new generation fuel efficient twin Cummins QSC Zeus 600 pod drives, or alternatively twin Volvo Penta IPS 900s, Riviera’s new 50 Enclosed Flybridge is expected to top 32 knots, cruising between 25 and 28 knots and delivering a range of 400 nautical miles.

Created in-house on Unigraphics 3D software, Riviera’s team of talented and passionate designers and engineers have focused on absolute maximisation of design and space, so they can see the exact size, space and scale of the vessel in the computer long before a single piece of timber is cut for the plug work.

Riviera’s design team have retained that unique Riviera look while introducing some exciting new design aspects such as double side transom doors which allow better access from both the port and starboard sides, mezzanine seating with integrated table, enhanced cockpit storage with a self-draining moulded lazarette bin that has been integrated into the cockpit floor, tender storage on the boarding platform, increased side deck access, a large aft C-shaped lounge that runs the width of the flybridge, flexible accommodation plan, full head room in the two aft cabins, attractive enhancements to the exterior profile lines balancing the flybridge and saloon window, and huge hull windows with opening port holes on both sides giving the two aft cabins an abundance of natural light and fresh air.

An additional 1.7 metres more of overall living space between the bow and stern has been made available through the incorporation of pod drives as compared to a similar sized shaft-driven boat.

Riviera CEO Wes Moxey said this new model was bristling with surprises.

'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, and we know from experience that it will perform well with its standard engine package,' he said.

'When you step aboard the new 50 Enclosed Flybridge, you instantly enter a world of the most modern technology encased in time honoured craftsmanship.


'Our design team has been very innovative with the internal plan providing exceptional accommodation without compromising the height or exterior lines of the boat.'

The new 50 Enclosed Flybridge features three luxuriously appointed staterooms and two bathrooms. Acoustic fabric panelling creates a sense of calm and combined with varnished cabinetry gives a feel of contemporary elegance. A washer and dryer are concealed behind varnished cabinetry in the companionway. 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 opening porthole as well as being in a quieter and more stable part of the boat being closer to the centre of gravity, while the full-width master stateroom forward boasts windows either side, ample under bed storage, an elegantly crafted cedar-lined wardrobe featuring book-ended panelling, built-in bedside tables and a timber vanity - the owners have the choice.

'With that in mind, this new vessel is also the perfect size for three couples or a large extended family. At 50 feet, it fits into standard size marina berths without compromising on space and the hallmark qualities of Riviera,' Mr Moxey said.

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 centre in the middle of the transom doors either side, thus giving easy access to the vessel, especially when rafted up with friends or at the marina.

The mezzanine seating has been lowered to allow for a fridge and freezer to be positioned between the galley window and mezzanine seat. There is also a removable table opposite the mezzanine lounge which can be rearranged depending on entertaining requirements. It can be positioned in front of the mezzanine lounge when enjoying a lazy breakfast with the best view in the world or one 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 social afternoon on board.

Two steps up 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 benchtops, European appliances and accoutrements and ‘timber’ Amtico flooring. Forward of the galley is a U-Shaped dinette to port and plush L-shaped lounge to starboard with several ottomans allowing for extra seating around the dinette or can be pushed up against the settee to create a large chaise.

An internal staircase adjacent to the galley leads up to the impressive 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 chairs and aft in the flybridge is an enormous C-Shaped lounge that runs 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 three-sided enclosed flybridge is second to none and we look forward to the world release of this exciting new model in 2013,' Mr Moxey said.

From a technological point of view, the new 50 Enclosed Flybridge will have the latest in LED lighting and C-Zone digital switching, which allows you to monitor all your entertainment, electronics and lighting with the touch of a button.

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 new 50 Enclosed Flybridge will make her world release in 2013 and Riviera has already taken several orders ‘off the plan’ for this stunning new vessel.

Riviera offers 15 different models from 36 to 75 feet across four model series Flybridge, Sport Yacht, Offshore Express and the new SUV collection.

Riviera also offers the bespoke Motor yacht line, Belize Motoryachts. Inspired by classic luxury details and timeless style, Belize Motoryachts has just released the new 52 foot Sedan and Day Bridge models.
