Riviera 48 Flybridge

The true blue-water classic Riviera 48 Flybridge set a new standard for go-anywhere motor yachting when it was launched in 1993.

The three-cabin motor yacht was offered as either a hard top Open Flybridge or three-sided Enclosed and both versions proved very popular, with 169 of these fabulous flybridge models being built between 1993 and 2004.

The 48 Flybridge was offered with a range of accommodation options, from two double staterooms and twin cabin to a forward stateroom version or forward V-berth with midships stateroom.

The saloon and galley fitout reflected Riviera’s ongoing commitment to constant improvement and luxury appointments. While the original design of a port side saloon lounge and dinette with step-down forward galley remained, the fitout was continually refined over an 11-year production period.

Whether her owners were committed sports fishers or families with a love of cruising and water sports, the Riviera 48 Flybridge provided something for every motor yachting enthusiast.

The response to our recent Facebook classic model post reflects the enthusiasm and love owners have for this Riviera.

Here are just some of the comments to our post. And please enjoy our gallery of owners’ photos.
