BSA Superyacht Of The Week: The Riviera 57 Enclosed Flybridge

Before you step aboard the impressive new Riviera 57 Enclosed Flybridge, you?ll notice her distinctive design. Indeed, the brand-new moulds created for the hardtop, the flybridge and the deck deliver a vessel of immense volume, exhibiting powerful and noble lines with a muscular sheer forward and quite deep topside dimensions, giving her a freeboard akin to a much larger yacht altogether.

The perception of volume is complemented by the fact her hull lines run straight aft from the maximum mid-ship beam of 5.13m (16' 10"). This, in turn, provides an extremely buoyant lift and planing surface, as well as great stability, enhancing her ultimate blue-water pragmatism.

Indeed, there's less the sense of a scaled-up 50-footer as there might be of a scaled-down 60-something footer. (The 57's overall length with swim platform and bow sprit is actually 59' 9", so no wonder.) But the perception of magnitude is perhaps even greater when you're on board.
