Riviera designers have put together an open-plan salon, taking advantage of the extra space created by having no deckhouse helm station. The interior, because of the substantial amount of window glass, is bright and cheery, and will remain so even on a dull day.
Windowsill heights are low enough that anyone sitting at the U-shaped dining settee and table, or on the lounge across from it, can see outside without stretching or getting up.
The U-shaped galley, positioned at the aft end of the salon, will be the focus of onboard entertainment. With the stainless steel–framed aft salon door pinned open, and the large, similarly framed, top-hinged glass window locked in the up position, the galley opens to the aft deck/cockpit area. The bar, directly across from the galley, not only allows the cook quick and easy access to wine and spirits for sauces and other cooking requirements, but also allows people on the back deck to grab a cold one without having to move through, or congregate in the salon.
The ease of access from the galley to the aft deck — well protected from rain or blazing sun by the extended salon roof — combined with the aft-deck barbecue center, will allow the cook to easily prepare meals for more than a dozen people.
The (3) staterooms and (2) heads are forward and down from the deckhouse. The stairway ends on a landing, or vestibule, like you will often see on much larger yachts, and access to all three cabins is off that vestibule.
The layout features three staterooms — two with queen berths and the third with a pair of twins. By selecting a pod-drive system for the 50EFB, Riviera added 5 feet, 6 inches to the interior hull living space compared to the traditional shaft-drive system.
Oak and teak interior with satin finish varnish throughout.
Salon upgrade - - the starboard settee - - the center seat converts to slide-out ottoman and a fold-out table lifts out to make a breakfast nook or card table.
