General Details

This sleek, fast and comfortable express conveys the luxurious and quality craftsmanship of Riviera. SOUTHERN BELLE is in pristine condition and with the upgraded Caterpillar C-18 with their 1,000 HP each propel this rocket ship in the water to 36 knots full throttle, a fast cruise of 33 knots and a comfortable cruise of 30 knots. The cockpit and helm deck are roomy and have the upgraded teak laid deck floor, steps and mezzanine. Superior visibility is all around while behind the helm and with her upgraded Gulf Package, the helm deck area stays cool and comfy being air-conditioned with an additional 36,000 btu A/C to the standard 32,000 btu. Seating for a small army is just behind the dual Captain’s Chairs, while a helm deck fridge keep the refreshments close by. Taking a few cherry wood steps below you will find a lavish and open floor plan that welcomes up to 6 guests to relax and refresh after a day out on the water.  A generous galley with all you need to keep the crew fed, plus the two staterooms and two full heads with stand-up showers boasts of her upscale accommodations. Outfitted with fish boxes, a lighted transom bait-well and gunwale flush-mounted rod holders – provide all that is needed to go out and cast out some lines, a transom door facilitates boating that catch. A large swim platform makes swimming, diving or snorkeling off this beautiful vessel a pleasurable experience. Underwater lights add that nighttime glow as well as the LED lighting throughout the exterior. For the sun-worshippers, a large cushioned sunpad lays foredeck via easy access side decks. Twin Garmin 7215 GPS Touchscreen displays are connected to a Simrad autopilot, Garmin radar and powerful full color depth sounder round out this amazing yacht.
