Manufacturer Provided Description

Every new model in Riviera's long and successful history of building Flybridge Convertible cruisers features refinements and innovations. It's the quiet revolution. Sleek dynamic and elegant but never ostentatious. The Riviera 47 Open Flybridge is a beautiful expression of our approach to innovation. It is a marriage of form and function, a development and refinement of an already very successful cruiser. Below the waterline, a revolution in design has been developed by one of the world's leading naval architects, Frank Mulder. He has created a running surface that delivers performance that can only be described as sensational. The most notable feature of this hull is two pockets housing the propeller shafts in the aft section to deliver superior forward thrust, resulting in higher top speed and better fuel economy.


There are 3 Staterooms with 2 Full Heads, and both have separate stall Showers. All the way forward is the Master Stateroom featuring a Centerline/Walk-Around Queen Berth, an ensuite Head with a Vanity with sink and mirrored medicine cabinet, Vacu-Flush toilet, a full separate Shower stall and ample storage.
