The future is now
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 chart a new course for Australia’s most-awarded builder of luxury motor yachts than highly experienced members of our global family of Riviera owners?
With your valued assistance, we have comprehensively researched how, when and where you use your Riviera … feeding all your experience, knowledge and aspirations into the design process as we strive to create for you the ‘ultimate boating experience’.
What we heard is that you desire to spend more time living aboard your luxury Riviera, and that you dream of cruising even further afield … and that you want real choices – and that this applies equally in terms of navigation and onboard systems as it does to drive packages.
Now, we present to you the supremely seaworthy, easy-to-skipper and absolutely luxurious Riviera 57 Enclosed Flybridge – in many ways she is your creation just as much as ours.
She is stylish, sophisticated and sublime … and proudly embodies the hallmark dependability for which Riviera is internationally renowned.
Notably, the 57 is available with your choice of either conventional shaft drive or innovative pod propulsion – one of the first yachts in the world to offer owners such flexibility. Of course such world-leading thinking and creativity in design is evident right throughout this world-class Riviera, which has been built to last with global best-practice standards foremost in mind.
You’ll notice her distinctive design – including her fully enclosed flybridge – that has everything in perfect proportion. Indeed, with her contemporary styling and impeccable blue-water pedigree, the robust Riviera 57 Enclosed exhibits powerful and noble lines with a muscular sheer forward and deep topside dimensions, giving her a freeboard akin to a much larger yacht altogether.
The full magnitude is complemented by the fact her hull lines run straight aft from the maximum mid-ship beam of 5.13m (16' 10"). This, in turn, provides an extremely buoyant lift and an easy planing surface, as well as great stability, enhancing her penultimate blue-water performance.
Indeed, there's less the sense of a scaled-up 50-footer as there might be of a scaled-down 60-something. (The 57's overall length with swim platform and bow sprit is actually 60’8”)
