During their ownership, many significant upgrades have been done. Namely in the early 2000's a repower with brand new Volvo Penta TAMD74EDC 450HP engines with electronic controls was done, now only showing 550 hours! A reconditioned Onan genset was also fitted and is showing a low1425 hours. Additionally, a solid GRP extended swim platform was custom made to replace the factory teak duck board.
This big Riviera has plenty of room for the whole family, the accommodation features a master cabin to starboard, with spacious en suite. The forward V Berth cabin features 4 large single bunks, with the lower bunk able to be converted to a large double. A shared en suite/day head is accessible from the companionway and the forward cabin.
The saloon is light and bright with a plenty of room. There is a dinette to port, with seating for 5 around a teak dining table. The galley is situated forward on the portside and has a large eutectic fridge, a 4-hob stove, convection microwave and plenty of bench space and pantry storage. The aft cockpit is generous in size, with fresh carpet and a eutectic freezer, plus an inwards-opening transom door to access the swim platform. Up in the bridge there is plenty of seating for your guests with 2 helm chairs and 2 upholstered bench seats. The current owners have not required any navigation electronics for all these years, so there is certainly room for the new owner to modernise the helm dash with some fresh equipment.
