Considering the conservative styling of previous Riviera models, the sweeping lines of the Riviera 40 suggest that this is an early example of a new more contemporary look for Riviera’s series of popular Australian-built convertibles. Like her sister ships in the Riviera line, the 40 is built on a beamy solid fiberglass hull with a well-flared bow and a short, shallow keel. Her two-stateroom interior is spacious for a 40-footer, and the varnished joiner work and quality fabrics add a touch of luxury to an otherwise unpretentious décor. A lower helm is optional, and there are three single berths in the guest stateroom. The door in the cockpit provides access to the engine room, and a pair of in deck fish boxes, a transom door, live well (with window) and molded tackle centers are standard. On the flybridge, an L-shaped settee forward of the helm will seat 6 adults. Additional features include a bow pulpit and wide side decks.
