Galley and Salon
The U-shaped galley design is positioned aft and therefore central to the massive saloon entertainment space and the cockpit. The galley is located to the port side and separated from fore and aft passing traffic. The Riviera 53 offers the latest in European appliances showcased in high gloss timber and solid surface bench top. Central to the galley is a Miele combination oven, featuring an induction cooktop, with microwave oven and electric grill. Proven Vitrifrigo drawer fridge and freezer along with Fisher and Paykel drawer dishwasher are all standard. Opposite the galley, to starboard, is a wet bar featuring options for ice maker, drawer fridge and freezer, and a floor to ceiling pull-out Hafele pantry. All galley drawers operate on soft close runners. Also opposite the galley is a stylish internal staircase leading to the enclosed flybridge. Its floating teak treads mounted on solid stainless steel rails complements what will be a beautiful interior. Forward of the galley is a C-shape dinette to port, that can convert into a double berth with a drop-down table. This arrangement faces a C-shape settee on the starboard side creating a spacious social setting for up to 10 in sheer cruising comfort. All of the lounges on the 53 are plush and luxurious, with a generous depth of padding. An option for a massive wide screen 50” TV on electric lift rises from the dash forward on the port side bringing sport and entertainment to the entire living area.
The flybridge is available in two options, with helm forward for long-distance cruising or helm aft, which many skippers prefer when sportsfishing. In either option, skipper and mate are seated on swivel pedestal chairs for maximum visibility. A dinette table set amidst a C-shape settee on the port side of the flybridge seats six comfortably, and a separate lounge to starboard complements the seating arrangement. A wet bar with drawer fridges and handbasin serves to refresh while underway. Prepared food is easily brought up to the flybridge from the galley directly below via the internal staircase. At rest or underway, the staircase can be secured for privacy or as a safety precaution via a folding, lockable hatch that disappears when open into varnished cabinetry. The roof of the flybridge boasts a sliding electric sun roof creating a sky-lounge, typical of much larger vessels. Side-opening windows and surround visibility will add to the light, airy atmosphere.
Hull Design
The vessel’s lines on the water are both powerful and noble, with a strong sheer forward and raised topsides create as much freeboard as a much larger vessel. The new Riviera 53 features hull lines run straight aft from maximum beam, creating a powerful lift and planning surface along with great stability. Moulded window casings create style and function, bringing 360 degrees of light into the interior and offering water views from every saloon seating position. The 53’s hull is laminated using vacuum infusion to deliver an exceptionally sound structure that incorporates areas of solid GRP and various core materials, depending on engineering requirements. Infusion technology used in the hull also helps replicate the incredibly precise lines lofted from Riviera’s CAD computer system, and provides an accurate foundation for parts milled on a 5-axis CAD – driven router. Controlling all DC electronics is the digital system, a revolutionary Controller Area Network (CAN) bus design that allows for the ultimate in customisation and finger-touch control of all aspects of electrical operation, from entertainment lighting to navigation equipment.
When it comes to propulsion, Riviera designers have settled on new-generation, fuel efficient pod drives to propel the 53 to a top speed of around 35 knots and a cruise speed between 25-28 knots delivering a range of 400 nautical miles depending on engine options on a 3500 litre fuel tank. However, there are a number of propulsion options on the new 53. Up to 30 per cent efficiency gains are the hallmark of the proven Volvo Penta IPS system. There is the option to choose twin IPS 1200 units or three IPS 600 units. The Cummins 600 Zeus system provides aft-facing dual propellers to each of the three pods, with the advantage of Skyhook station keeping and the integrated Auto Trim Tab system. A further propulsion option is available using the ZF 4000 pod drive system, with twin counter-rotating Nibral (Nickel, Bronze, Aluminium) propellers facing aft. With the option of ZF drives, a customer can choose between Caterpillar or MTU power plants, with the option of twin 1015 hp C18 engines
