Kicking off the new launch press conferences was Riviera Yachts with the IPS powered 43 Open Flybridge (shown, right). Although the profile appears to be that of a typical convertible, the 43 is all about cruising and entertaining. The large sliding saloon door and opening rear bulkhead create a seamless outdoor/indoor space creating a hybrid between a convertible and an express cruiser. In true Aussie style, there is a large barbecue at the stern, flanked my mezzanine seating. A transom door opens to a large swim platform well-suited for water activities.
