The Riviera 43 Open Flybridge incorporates great function and style within a supremely comfortable, seakindly hull.

Designed exclusively using Riviera’s Unigraphics three dimensional CAD software system, the result is a superbly considered boat with abundant use of light and space. The 43 Open Flybridge brings the outdoors in, creating an al fresco environment with a seamless transition between the expansive cockpit and the contemporary leather and varnished cherry interior.

External Features

The flybridge, accessible from the cockpit via a new design ‘stair-ladder’, offers 360 degree vision with minimal interruption, thanks to a new structural hard top canopy.

Swivel companion and helm chairs allow fingertip console control with seating for four at an L-shape around a weatherproof table. A wet bar with settee opposite on the port side completes the flybridge comforts.

The proven Volvo Penta Inboard Performance System (IPS) has allowed Riviera designers to create a fresh accommodation layout on the new 43 Open Flybridge. With all major engineering positioned well aft, enormous gains are made with beam-width space amidships.

Handling the 43 Open Flybridge in close-quarters is made care-free via the use of the integrated joystick control.

The hull and deck construction is solid hand-laid fiberglass below the waterline and core materials in the hull topsides and superstructure. This composite laminate design makes good use of weight where it is needed most, to deliver a solid feel and soft ride offshore.

Internal Features

The main saloon is both beautiful and practical, with seating for seven in a U-shape lounge to starboard around a generous sized, timber folding table. To port is the fully equipped galley complete with a breakfast bar for two forward.

Below decks there is sleeping accommodation for up to six in two large cabins. The forward master stateroom features a queen sized two metre long double-bed, with a cedar-lined hanging robe, extensive storage and an ensuite bathroom.

The aft, full beam cabin has large port lights with optional portholes either side for natural light and cross ventilation. A large skylight under the forward saloon windscreen provides additional light to this cabin, creating a bright and welcoming space.
