When you are out to Sea in an unknown area everything has to work like new!

Why this boat?
Most Boats sit at the marina and go out for a day or so, and have four or five little problems that never get fixed, but because we have lived on board OFF GRID most of the time any small issue has been updated BY PROFESSIONALS to be like new - by relevant marine specialist. Sometimes better than new because better technology.

Riviera built ONLY 22 of these huge volume boats - truly a fantastic design. Friend with a Riv 47 Enclosed Flybridge cannot believe the space. Layout is efficient and spacious. She longs for a proper walk around bed like ours.
6 split levels so NO LADDERS!
This is the more popular 3 bedroom version. Some were 2 cabin. Kinda waste.
So much volume AND it fits on a 12m Marina Berth AND a 12m Marine Parks mooring! Often vacant in Whitsundays where longer boats have to battle for the larger moorings!
Unlike most aft cabin cruisers, the Riviera 40 AC is easily boarded from the swim platform via moulded stairs onto the large aft deck area (eliminating those awkward vertical ladders).  
If you are looking for a well maintained very spacious cruiser with the bonus of no ladders, easy access, 3 cabins, 3 H/C Showers and 2 toilets don't miss this boat!
AND..... It fits on a readily available 12m berth!

Maintained meticulously by professionals - No D. I. Y.
Set up for OFF GRID living; Watermaker, 3 Solar Panels +320 A/Hr VICTRON Lithium House Batteries + 6 many 12v Power Points for device charging 24/7 Off Grid. Full VICTRON System No cheap cheats were optioned.
