Kismet - 2014 56' 8" RIVIERA Motor Yacht 50 EB Seattle Washington United States $1,075,000 USD
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.

SEA Magazine Quote
The new Riviera 50 manages to keep faith with buyers who want a traditional tough, strong, well-built fishing machine, while at the same time including features that make it a comfortable family motoryacht. The enclosed flybridge is a design stroke of genius. It’s large enough to allow the skipper to socialize with his whole family in style and comfort but gives great protection from the weather. Visibility while cruising is unparalleled.
The fit and finish throughout the vessel is excellent, and all equipment and appliances are first class. The pod-drive system, combined with joystick controls, makes anyone a great boat handler. As a boat that can function as both a fishing machine and a family cruiser, without compro- mising the major features of either, the Riviera 50 Enclosed Flybridge is a versatile must-see.
