“The alfresco layouts, merging the welcoming and superbly equipped cockpit spaces with luxurious and comfortable interiors, are the hallmark of Riviera. The highly awarded designers, engineers and master craftsmen at the Riviera facility in Australia are continually refining the designs and easy-to-use technology and equipment aboard these motor yachts that make the joy of Riviera ownership a sheer pleasure,” he said.

“The 52 Enclosed is a three-stateroom/two-bathroom accommodation design with the master able to be located forward or aft. She also features innovative flybridge and cockpit designs as well as a superbly equipped aft galley that openly connects to the cockpit via the large awning window and sliding salon door,” continues Castro.

“This model features a modern helm design with enough room for three 17-inch screens. CZone digital switching provides control of electrical systems and Volvo Penta IPS joysticks are at the helm and in the cockpit. A raft of subtle features from bow sprit to swim platform enhance onboard livability and luxury living.”

Superior power and performance for the 52 Enclosed Flybridge is provided by the Volvo Penta D11-IPS950 system, with twin in-line six-cylinder 10.8 litre common-rail diesels which are both turbo and supercharged for incredible low RPM response producing 725hp/533kW working together with the perfectly matched IPS 2 pod drives with twin counter-rotating propellers and the Electronic Vessel Control system. These engines and drives deliver very impressive fuel efficiency, low noise levels, long cruising range and exceptional maneuverability through joystick control.
