Your love of the boating life is about to be reinvigorated − the Riviera 48 Offshore Express boasts so many refinements and such magnificent performance characteristics that it will surely thrill the most seasoned enthusiast. The 48 is a boat built for all occasions, thanks to a choice of configurations − an open boat "fishing" configuration without Targa or coverings to the helm; a stylish Targa model with removable bimini, side clears and rear storm curtain; or a comfortable all-weather cruiser giving the option of a three-sided hardtop plus rear curtain for a completely enclosed helm deck. A myriad of thoughtful details make this a stateroom that stands alone. With its own en-suite, of course, it has similar features to the saloon bathroom but is also somewhat larger. The marriage of aesthetics and functionality is a critical determinant of boating pleasure and, in the 48 Offshore Express, we believe it is a marriage made in heaven. This is a boat that not only works incredibly well but does so with such impeccable style. And if that sounds like your style, we look forward to welcoming you aboard.
