Riviera 35 Open Flybridge

Every once in a while a vessel comes to the market that simply makes you say “Wow!!”. Under the stewardship of her current, extremely dedicated owners this classic Riviera 35 has undergone a meticulous and comprehensive program of restoration, upgrades and modernisation and the results have to be seen to be appreciated.

One look at the surgical cleanliness and show quality presentation in the engine room offers an insight into the obsessive attention to detail that has fuelled every facet of the work carried out in recent years. Virtually every component and onboard system has been replaced, reconditioned or improved in some fashion with the intention of creating a beautifully presented cruiser that can reliably take you to any destination at a moment’s notice.

In the past 24 months alone – pumps (all of them!), electronics, winch, shaft seals, electrics, appliances… New! Turbos, exhaust elbows (Custom S/S), Entertainment systems, deck hatches, lighting (LED), BBQ, wall linings, safety gear, Tender and outboard….All New!

As well as the renewal and refreshing of existing components much thought has gone into subtle improvements in functionality and usability.

The Riviera 35 packs a lot of volume in to her length with ample cockpit space for fishing/diving, a large and bright main saloon with great visibility from all angles, ergonomic bathroom with huge shower capsule and 2 full size double cabins (forward cabin could easily be converted back to V-berths if required). The flybridge, unlike many 11m vessels, has ample width and seating creating a truly usable second social space.

Proven Riviera build strength and sea keeping abilities combined with meticulous presentation and classic character make this a must view for those wanting something a bit special.
