One of the latest flybridge models to be developed, this is also one of the most refined and elegant in the series. The open flybridge not only reflects contemporary styling but is perfect for all-weather cruising. The sheer on board space, from the deck to the saloon to the master stateroom, also makes the 51 ideal for long range cruising... and with three cabins and two bathrooms, six adults can set sail in unparalleled comfort.

2006 Riviera 51 Flybridge Yacht for sale in San Diego

Riviera Flybridge Convertibles have reached almost legendary status in the boating world. Intelligent design, quality construction and sheer value have earned the brand an enviable reputation and a worldwide following. And they just keep getting better. This 51’, six berth model features refinements that will take your breath away. The closer you inspect this vessel the more in awe of her you will be… the attention to detail, the ergonomic design, the thought that has gone into making life aboard as easy and as pleasurable as possible are outstanding.

It may seem trivial to point to things like the outdoor light switch that puts an end to fumbling around with the keys in the dark, the new heavy duty swim ladder that makes access so much easier, or the under-floor safety lights… but a thousand details like these add up to one magnificent vessel.

Of course, this attention to detail is there in the big things too: the space and light that characterzse the interior, the luxury fittings, the standard bow thruster, the hydrodynamics of a hull that delivers such a smooth ride – and with standard twin C12 Caterpillars (522kW/700hp) with Twin Disc Quick Shift gearboxes and electronic controls, the 51 delivers a top speed of around 30 knots† and a cruising speed of around 25 knots†.

The solid hand-laid fiberglass hull, together with collision bulkheads, inspires confidence. The ergonomics of the helm station promote a delightful sense of control. And the onboard facilities are an invitation to the happiest of times with family and friends. Yes, this is a boat for those who love to entertain, but more than that it is a boat for those who love life… freedom and adventure, exhilaration and relaxation, indulgence and playfulness. If you are seeking to raise the standard of your boating life, your ship has come in.

The open flybridge is likely to be a very popular spot during the day. It’s huge, flooded with natural light and, of course, the elevated position offers sensational views. It really is the best of both worlds: the outdoor experience with all the indoor comforts! You even have the option to air-condition the bridge.

This is no flimsy open flybridge either; the robust stainless steel supports and solid hardtop contribute to a very substantial feeling. A flybridge that is tough enough to weather, the storm but flexible enough to take full advantage of fine weather is one reason why the 51 is an ideal all-seasons cruiser or game fisher. To cater for your family and friends, there’s a large table complete with drink holders, quality seating, CD player, wet bar and fridge.

There’s loads of storage space, special glass racks, and even a locker for the garbage bin. The elegantly molded fittings and furnishings themed with an attractive white and blue motif create a delightful environment for socializing. Then there’s our new-style helm station.

The layout of the controls and displays is reminiscent of a luxury European car: clean, uncluttered and with everything as visible and accessible as could be. There are two immensely comfortable and fully adjustable helm seats, so when you are in the driving seat, you can always have company.

When you feel like a change of mood, lift the hatch and step down the robust ladder to the cockpit. Here you can really stretch out or do some serious entertaining: it’s a wonderfully large open space and, naturally, equipped with a fridge, sink, live bait tank, and masses of storage for fold-away furniture, watersports accessories or the catch of the day. For dedicated sun worshippers, the foredeck is big enough to accommodate you, your friends – and a sizeable dinghy and crane.

The look, the level of comfort and the range of inclusions in this saloon are simply ‘as good as it gets’. The light face of cherry or teak (optional) timber, a theme that runs throughout the interior, contributes to an ambiance of contemporary elegance. No doubt you will also appreciate the mirror-like finish and impeccable craftsmanship found in this timberwork.

Wherever you look, there is something to admire: the promise of supreme comfort in the large, deep lounge; the sense of space created by the shape of the fittings and the ‘flow’ of the room; the generous proportions of the dining area; and the amount of storage room will impress even those planning on the longest voyage with a full complement of passengers.

Again, it’s those little details that make a big difference – like the high ceiling, and the grab rail that is now recessed into the ceiling… and on the topic of ceilings, press a button and a section folds down to reveal a home for your fishing rods or other items that need to be stowed away.

Everything, from the flatscreen TV, DVD player and Bose surround sound system to the icemaker and wine cooler, tells you that our standard inclusions set a new standard in luxury cruising. The galley is equally impressive. Positioned in such a way that the chef is still a part of the party, it features ingenious storage and all the equipment and room you need to prepare the most elaborate of dishes.

As for the quality of the fittings, what else would you expect but Corian for benchtops and Grohe for tapware? Our relentless pursuit to create an environment that is as functionally perfect as it is aesthetically pleasing is reflected everywhere. Even the stairway to below decks has been reshaped and widened to spread light and improve access.

Below deck you’ll find two elegant staterooms, a cabin housing bunks, two bathrooms and a cunningly concealed laundry with a quality washer/dryer. The generous proportions of the Master Stateroom have allowed us to give you the luxury of a larger than average bed – with a proper innerspring mattress, of course.

And the ensuite has been meticulously designed with a large Corian topped vanity and a shower that actually lets you move around. For Riviera, there is no such thing as a waste of space: where there is an opportunity to give you more storage room, we seize it. Yet, despite the numerous cupboards and cabinets we never cramp your style.

The Guest Stateroom retains the sophisticated, contemporary look of the saloon and here too you will find a flat screen TV and DVD player. The platform on which the bed sits now also features drawers underneath and lifts on gas struts to allow access to further storage.

The second bathroom, of similar standard, is even more ingeniously designed. With two door access it can serve as an ensuite off the second stateroom or for general use off the below-decks passageway. This second stateroom is again superbly furnished, sizeable and wonderfully comfortable – in fact, it is superior to the Master Stateroom found on many competing vessels.

The cabin, offers an unusual level of comfort and, in typical Riviera style, the creative use of space is sure to impress you. As you retire to bed after a glorious day at sea you will no doubt sleep easy… safe in the knowledge that your Riviera 51 Flybridge Convertible is indeed one of the wisest and most satisfying purchases you have ever made.
