    As you enter the salon you will find an L-shaped couch to port which has storage below in one section and a trundle bed in the other. Large side windows and light fabrics, the Riviera 42 pulls off a light and airy ambience. To starboard is the dinette which has an L-shaped seating and a pedestal table with a high gloss cherry wood table top. A flat screen TV is mounted for. Two steps down is a finely appointed galley featuring an electric cooktop, standup refrigerator/freezer, in-drawer dishwasher and a microwave oven. The step-down galley doesn’t forget the chef and still provides visibility and conversation with the rest of the group in the salon while concealing the leftover roast and dirty dishes. Riviera provides a sizable pantry under the galley sole. This 42 boasts a slightly unorthodox layout consisting of three berths in one guest cabin with two low singles and one upper berth. This cabin has a head with shower that’s accessible from the companionway. The master cabin in the bow, with its own private head and shower, sports a double island berth for the owner’s comfort. You’ll surely be impressed with the exceptional joinery and brightwork finish.

    The Riviera 42’s flybridge offers a unique design incorporating an unusual starboard-side helm with a companion seat on centerline. I like the fact that the helmsman doesn’t have to move to let a guest pass and occupy the companion seat. And I enjoyed unobstructed vision both fore and aft from the wheel. On the other hand, if the captain needs to get down below in the heat of the moment, the guest may be in the way. A straight settee to port and a large L-shaped settee forward of the helm console offers more guest seating than most 42-footers. This Riviera provides as much room on the bridge as any production 42 I can remember, maybe more.

    The Riviera 42 sports several innovative features, one of which can be found in the cockpit. Small pop-up cleats in the cockpit covering boards specifically accommodate fenders so you needn’t suffer a tangle of different-sized lines on your stern cleats running out in various directions. Speaking of which, Riviera mounts its large stern cleats in deep indentations in the aft corner covering boards with fairleads. Some say this system has the potential for snagging a fishing line. While this may be true, I don’t think you’d ever see a line touch the gunwales anywhere near the position of these cleats unless the angler was lying on the cockpit sole. Square, lift-out fish boxes in the port and starboard cockpit deck hide cavernous lazarette space. In addition, a lazarette hatch on centerline accesses storage space under the fish boxes, as well as the rudderposts and quadrants, pumps and hydraulics. Additional hatches under the gunwales and in the transom hide storage for mops, lines and so on. You’ll find a transom baitwell on centerline alongside a tuna door. Riviera also provides six in-gunwale rod holders augmented by rocket launchers across the back of the flybridge rail.
