Sydney Premiere - Riviera 61 Enclosed Flybridge

The new Riviera 61 Flybridge brings many new and exciting innovations to Riviera's flybridge range, including a magnificently crafted unobtrusive internal staircase that leads you from the saloon door up to the flybridge level. As well as providing dry, safe and easy access to the flybridge, this design also affords the luxury of incorporating a hinge-up awning window in the saloon aft bulkhead, opening the saloon up to the cockpit.

On this model, the awning window concept is further extended to include the same format on the flybridge level, opening up the already expansive flybridge to include the aft-facing lounge.

The enclosed flybridge provides seating up to six adults on a sweeping L-shaped lounge to port, upholstered in luxurious leather. The skipper and companion are seated on two high quality Pompanette helm chairs. Both chairs swivel to improve communication with guests in the flybridge. The skipper's chair is electrically adjustable.

A folding wooden table, conveniently located stainless steel grab rails, a wet-bar, a refrigeration drawer, an aft-facing external lounge with ice-box capabilities, overhead feature panels and a sliding sun-roof add the final touches of elegance and practicality.

The Riviera 61 Flybridge is a four cabin, three bathroom boat with the master stateroom amidships, a second stateroom forward and two cabins to starboard. An alternative accommodation design of three cabins includes a lounge area below decks.

The saloon aft bulkhead features a highly polished stainless steel framed hinge-out door and hinge-up awning window to provide an al fresco atmosphere.

Stepping though the door, the saloon layout has a plush L-shaped leather lounge in the port aft quarter, with a focal point being the associated teak and cherrywood coffee table.

Forward of this lounge is a galley that could only be described as gourmet. The inclusion of the four burner electric induction cook-top, convection microwave, three-drawer fridge and single drawer freezer, dishwasher, garbage bin, granite bench-top, Amtico flooring and overhead storage lockers will satisfy the most discerning of chefs.

Opposite the galley is the dinette, resplendent with wooden table and contrasting premium leather upholstery.
