About this Yacht
Aussies, by and large, are a tough lot, so it comes as no surprise that the yachts they build are just as tough. This Riviera 51 confirmed that expectation for me. Inside and out, she’s built to take the punishment of hard-core fishing or venturing to distant shores. She boasts a spacious saloon, fully equipped galley, three comfortable staterooms, and two heads, all catering to her owner’s comfort and relaxation. The engine room - a well-laid-out space dominated by twin 825-hp MTU diesels crouched on either side of the centerline.
Mounted near the forward bulkhead astride the centerline was the standard 17.5-kW Onan genset and hushbox, flanked by a holding tank and macerator pumps to port and two standard Cruisair A/C units on the starboard side. The main saloon has two features, which stand out – the wine cooler cabinet, and the fishing rod storage locker in the saloon ceiling. Gas struts control the door, which swings down to reveal a cavernous space. The galley has a three-burner electric stove hidden beneath Corian lids, which lift and stow out of the way when you lose the toss and get stuck with the job of whipping up the bacon and eggs and burning the toast and boiling coffee. Recent upgrades include a new davit crane and tender. Inventory on request.
