Versatility and practicality shine through in the Riviera 64 Sport Motor Yachts cockpit, with no less than four lockers across the transom and coamings, along with vast underfloor storage that comprises a large insulated fish bin flanked by twin lazarettes. A removeable hatch allows an optional gyro stabiliser to be fitted.
An optional plumbed bait tank can be incorporated in the transom in lieu of the standard wet locker. Docklines and shorepower leads stow in coaming lockers, out of sight but not out of mind. The aft cleats sit within curved recesses to allow a neat fall for the tethers.
To starboard is a wetbar that includes a 190-litre refrigerator and 100-litre icebox. The adjacent unit accommodates twin barbecue plates and sink, along with a recessed bin, all shielded from the elements by a fibreglass benchtop. Immediately above this area is a tackle locker with inbuilt trays.
Skippers are afforded wide access to the sidedecks and the convenience of cockpit-level joystick controls if optioned.
Two generous steps lead to the 64 Sport Motor Yachts mezzanine level and the external engineroom hatch – ideal for quick checks or technician access. To port is an L-shaped day lounge served by an optional icemaker, while an overhead recess can house a fold-down 32-inch TV.
Al fresco dining will be enjoyed in the L-shaped lounge area to starboard, which includes a drop-leaf teak table. Battery switches are also located here for easy accessibility when first boarding the vessel.
Ensuring privacy and sun protection, there are one-way-vision glass panels extending from the cabin superstructure that allow those onboard to enjoy the view but not be viewed themselves. The mezzanine can be enclosed with optional clears and serviced by air-conditioning ducts for maximum comfort during extremes of weather.
