Former Royal Motor Yacht Club, Broken Bay Commodore Peter Haig has just taken delivery of his sixth Riviera – a new 52 Enclosed Flybridge.
Peter tells David Lockwood from BoatPoint.com.au how impressed he is with the easy-to-use technology, thoughtful design and impressive performance after his 400 nautical mile shake-down cruise from the home of Riviera on Queensland’s Gold Coast to iconic Sydney Harbour in New South Wales.

"For any flybridge yacht, the bridge should be a focal point of control and comfort. Riviera covers both and then some. From the indoor flybridge staircase with “floating” teak steps, to the twin plush Pompanette helm chairs, to the L-shaped settee with table, Riviera certainly makes the flybridge a central gathering point."

"The 52 Enclosed Flybridge is the seventh model in Riviera’s range of stylish flying bridge boats. At 56’8” (17.3 m), it is the smallest of four enclosed flying bridge designs in the builder’s lineup, which reaches up to the 77 Enclosed Flybridge. Like her larger siblings, the 52 Enclosed Flybridge emphasizes visibility and numerous windows on the main deck, as well as on the flying bridge, for expansive views.
The build is typical of Riviera’s reputation for bluewater-capable yachts. The hand-laid hull has a solid keel and chines up to a point above the waterline, with special attention given to scantlings in the area of the engine room for penetration protection. There’s a watertight collision bulkhead forward, and the area is foam-filled to provide thermal and acoustic insulation. There are watertight, independent compartments throughout the hull. The flybridge, deck and flybridge superstructure are cored structures."

"Step in style when you board the futuristic new Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge. If you didn’t know better, you’d think this beauty was something conceived in Hollywood for the latest sci-fi thriller. But in fact, this vessel is real, with real design features and real performance— and wow, more than 100 square feet of cockpit!
The layout is superb, with a flexible three-stateroom/two-bathroom accommodation plan with aft gourmet galleys with large awning windows ensuring a free-flowing feel from the cockpit to the front windscreen. You’ll find rich and spacious salons with all the premium amenities, as if they were special ordered.
The 52 has an overall length of 56 feet, 8 inches and features a 925 gallon fuel tank, and is powered by the IPS2-950 package featuring D11 engines (533kW/725hp) and pod drives which achieve—get this—a cruising range of 378 nautical miles at 25.3 knots!"
Lakeland Boating [August 2015]
"Operation of the Riviera 52 is whisper quiet, thanks to the underwater exhaust, insulated air filtration and improved turbochargers. With a fuel capacity of 925 gallons, she can run at more than 20 knots and get a 300nM range result."

"Keep in mind this as a fully integrated fibreglass enclosed flybridge, with large windows, side sliders and strata glass aft window panels that easily open to communicate with those below. And it's solid – no creaking or groaning as we ran the chop."

The Brief was simple: create the largest, most luxurious and technically advanced Riviera ever. For our designers, engineers and craftspeople, it was an invitation to express their talent and creativity like never before - and they responded magnificently.
Riviera is proud to announce the launch of its new 63 Flybridge with a raft of engineering and design enhancements based on its predecessor, the superb 61 Flybridge.
Designed from the keel up, using Rivieraâ€™s Uni-Graphics NX three dimensional CAD software system, the new 53 has been developed in-house after nearly two years of detailed consultation with boat owners across the globe.
Designed from the keel up, using Rivieraâ€™s Uni-Graphics NX three dimensional CAD software system, the new 53 has been developed in-house after nearly two years of detailed consultation with boat owners across the globe. The result is a fresh approach, signalling a new generation of Riviera prowess and efficiency. The 53 is a vessel of considerable internal volume, allowing Rivieraâ€™s designers to create unprecedented living spaces, elegant amenities and unrivalled performance.
The stunning new 50 Enclosed Flybridge is expected to prove equally enticing as her big sister, the 53 Enclosed Flybridge. The new model is currently under construction and will make her world debut in 2013.
Anyone investing in a luxury pleasure boat has developed certain lifestyle standards and an aversion to compromise. If you relate to this, welcome to the world of Rivieraâ€¦ and in particular welcome aboard the 45 Open Flybridge.
The new Riviera 43 Open Flybridge, is the latest in flybridge design from Australiaâ€™s most awarded luxury boat builder.
It is a luxury boat beyond anything previously developed by Riviera, Australiaâ€™s most awarded luxury boat builder. The exciting Riviera 5800 Sport Yacht, is the latest and most dramatic of the companyâ€™s European-style Sport Yacht series.
Embarking on the development of an entirely new style of boat is one of the most challenging and exciting projects we have undertaken in recent times. The inspiration for our Sport Yacht series, came from recognising the changing values and lifestyles not just of boat owners, but people everywhere â€“ changes that are reflected in such domains as contemporary architecture, interior design and the styling of prestige cars.
In our long history we have produced many new vessels, but none has challenged traditions or questioned the assumptions on which boats are generally built quite like our Sport Yacht series.
It is a luxury boat beyond anything previously developed by Riviera, Australiaâ€™s most awarded luxury boat builder. The exciting Riviera 3600 Sport Yacht, is the latest and most dramatic of the companyâ€™s European-style Sport Yacht series.
From the immediate acceptance and success of the 445SUV, the 565 will be a great all round entertainer. Lockable sliding rear door, 3 sided enclosed hardtop with sliding side windows as standard makes for a comfortable boat in all types of weather.
Bearing Rivieraâ€™s classic hallmark design, the new 445 SUV has been crafted with Rivieraâ€™s rich-heritage in mind. Combining the high performance, blue water cruising abilities and large open cockpit of the classic Flybridge with the fish raising abilities of the Offshore Express, and the single-level leisurely, entertaining features of the popular Sport Yacht series, has created a vessel like no other, a true bridge between all of them.
All the amenities of the Sedan but with extra benefits on top. For those who relish open-air boating, or live where the warm season is short and want to make the most of it. Arcing deep-tread stairs lead up to saloon-like amenities including large L-shaped lounge, hi-lo table, wet bar with sink and fridge, and a second day helm.
One continuous level of luxury with everything to hand - helm. galley, saloon, dining, bar - in a comfy, roomy weather-proof space. The Sedan is all Sport Yacht style; less about catching fish as catching up. Rear hopper window and sliding door extends entertaining to the open air. As does the giant sliding sunroof, either at anchor or under way.
