Manufacturer Provided Description

Your love of the boating life is about to be reinvigorated, for the Riviera 48 Offshore Express boasts so many refinements and such magnificent performance characteristics that it will surely thrill the most seasoned enthusiast. The 48 is a boat built for all occasions thanks to a choice of configurations; an open boat ?fishing? configuration without Targa or coverings to the helm; a stylish Targa model with removable bimini, side clears and rear storm curtain; or a comfortable all-weather cruiser when you can opt for a three-sided hardtop plus rear curtain, for a completely enclosed helm deck. It is a myriad of thoughtful details that makes this a stateroom that stands alone. Of course, it also has its own en suite, and not only with similar features to the saloon bathroom but is somewhat larger. The marriage of aesthetics and functionality is a critical determinant of boating pleasure and in the 48 Offshore Express we believe it is a marriage made in heaven. This is a boat that not only works incredibly well but does so with such with impeccable style. And if that sounds like your style, we look forward to welcoming you aboard.
