Can be optioned with an hydraulic lifter to allow the launch and retrieval of a jet ski or small tender. Can become a beach when partly submerged for water sports or swimming.
Take-in a peerless view from the top, fishing or blue-water cruising, in a classic Riviera flybridge design offering you fine ‘easy living’ lifestyle, over three levels.
It’s hard to say which aspect of the Riviera 43 Open Flybridge you’ll enjoy most … its capacity for superb entertaining, or great blue-water fishing? Almost certainly the answer will be “both”. Friends and family will revel in the spacious, well designed cockpit (with its ‘stair ladder’ to the flybridge), luxurious saloon, indeed every part of life onboard …
Luxury on a whole other level, class leading for a yacht of this size. Handcrafted, well considered, always welcoming. You’ll love retreating to the accommodation deck boasting your master stateroom and designer ensuite, located forward. Love treating your family and friends also to the full beam guest stateroom aft, with its VIP ensuite doubling as the day head.
World leading on board technology makes the 43 Open Flybridge supremely easy to operate and skipper…for novices and experienced hands alike. You’ll have silky-smooth Volvo Inboard Propulsion System (IPS) to power you, Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit Navigation and multi-function display screens to guide you and fingertip-easy, joystick manoeuvrability. Simply brilliant.

* Length of the hull (Lh) to ISO8666: Includes all structural and integral parts (ie. the moulded length of the hull). It excludes parts that can be removed in a non-destructive manner without affecting the structural integrity of the craft, (eg. pulpits, outdrives, driving platforms, rubbing strakes).
** Dry weight represents the estimated minimum weight of a yacht with standard engines and options, no fuel or water on board, no equipment or provisions and no personnel. The stated dry weight may be exceeded.
*** Denotes net tank capacity. For useable capacity do not rely on more than 90% of tank capacity. Actual capacity will vary according to yacht trim and sea state. Speeds are subject to normal weather conditions, fuel and/or water levels, passengers and equipment loads.
From the minute you step onto the huge boarding platform, through the transom door with its lift-up bridge and into the cockpit you can’t help but be impressed … The unified flow from the transom to the forward windscreen is obvious and it works so well

RIVIERA'S 43 OPEN FLYBRIDGE OFF THE CHARTS!
She gets onto plane almost immediately with virtually no use of the trim tabs. Cornering is tight and sure and she has a very smooth, soft ride even at pace. Even in huge swells she lifts gradually and gently settles into the troughs. She is a fabulous combination of luxury and practicality

RIVIERA'S 43 OPEN FLYBRIDGE
Given the 43 Open's fuel capacity of 1800 litres with a 20 percent reserve, the new cruiser can comfortably deliver between 350 and 500 nautical mile range, depending on speed. The 43 Open Flybridge tips the tape at 47 feet 5 inches and a 15 foot beam makes it a big volume cruiser for its…

Traditional Toughness and Sophisticated Engineering combined
This Riviera 43 Open Flybridge, while not forgetting the traditional toughness demanded by serious sportfisherman, is a very sophisticated and well-engineered cruiser. The interior layout, including the expansive mid-cabin, is very clever, and the fit and finish throughout is as good as on any yacht in the market segment. Visibility is excellent, and there’s plenty…

Those who like their cruising comforts and spritely performance will be satisfied, while still being able to enjoy the greatest attraction of flybridge cruisers - the ability to look down on the world from above, sight the far horizon, chase a school of tuna or just follow the sun with the partner by your side…

Open for Excitement!
Rivera's new 43 Open Flybridge makes an excellent cruising/family boat and, as Warren Steptoe excitedly discovered, when ordered with 'fishing' styling, it makes a first-class gameboat, too. With a design maximising the benefits of Volvo's sensational IPS drives, this is a very proud addition to the substantial Riviera stable.

Innovation and technology at work
With an impressive array of latest technology and an innovative approach to internal design fitout, the ten's of thousands of man hours involved in the development of this new generation cruiser will surely pay dividends.
- Peter Scott
This was a boat designed by a team who know and understand boating in the 21st century. Every change, every feature, was practical as well as user-friendly - for all the family. What more could you ask then, of a 14.46-metre flybridge cruiser with all the toys.
- Barry Tyler
Step aboard and you'll discover a truly revolutionary cruiser configured to carry Riviera's steady-as-she-goes offshore flybridge range into the future. Externally she's a modernised Riv, but internally she's something even more refreshing and, yes, inspiring.

A new era of openness
The 43 Open Flybridge has the distinct lines of a Riviera, but inside the design approach is very different to the Rivieras most people come to know. It is a totally new design and, with the simplicity of its operation, the vessel appears to be the ideal all-rounder.
