I love the Riviera 43 IPS. Riviera put a lot of thought into this evolutionary design, a replacement of the successful 40 which once dominated the order books. Registered at 14m they suit a large number of moorings at Rottnest Island, they are particularly easy to handle with the joystick, in fact if you have never driven a boat before I believe I can have you berthing the 43 in a pen within just 30 minutes of practise without touching the poles!
The proportion of rear deck to cabin is perfectly balanced for our Western Australian lifestyle, a massive 9.5 square metres - the first of the Riviera models with such a large entertaining area and something they continued to roll out through their range in following years. Apart from simple handling, the IPS Pod Drives are economical when compared with their shaft drive equivalents. With underwater exhaust systems, the pods are very very quiet. Even at the cruise of 22 knots you can easily have a conversation without screaming. As with most pod drive Riviera models, I found the ride to be particularly dry. The demeanour of the vessel has the water displacing from about a third of the way back from the pointy end where the spray is dispersed out and down.
Ergonomically the 43 Open Flybridge is functional. Refrigeration, storage and accommodation is well thought out and clever.
I have spent a lot of time behind the helm of the 43 in the past and I have to say they are one of the best in their class available on the market today.
