Construction begins on Riviera’s new 50 Enclosed Flybridge

The first stages of Riviera’s brand new 50 Enclosed Flybridge has begun with the construction of the hull plug, which is now ready for moulding.

This stunning new model is bristling with surprises, from the most modern technology to time-honoured craftsmanship. A flexible accommodation plan offers two bathrooms and full head room in the two aft cabins, while huge hull windows with opening port holes on both sides give the two aft cabins an abundance of natural light and fresh air.

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.

Riviera’s latest flybridge model will make her world debut in August 2013 at the Sydney International Boat Show and we will be tracking her progress each month in R Experience.

 

Photo 1: The timber frame work begins to be cut by a CNC router driven by the computer generated design. Photo 2: The hull frames are stood side by side. Once all of the frames are in place they are lined together with stringer batons and then sheeted with a plywood skin.
Photos 3, 4 and 5: It is here that you can see the contemporary new lines of this exciting new model come to life in real size.
Photos 6 and 7: The plywood skin is complete and ready for sanding and fairing to ensure the surface is totally smooth prior to the moulding of the plug.
