However, some critics of larger convertibles will argue that, when landing big game, the maneuvering capabilities of larger designs can become an issue. I would counter that the angler should still do some of the work, and these critics haven't been on the Riviera 70. During our test off Australia's Gold Coast, I found she was as agile as some 50-footers I've run. She stays true even with one engine running and barely a touch of the wheel. When backing down, the upper station provided a great view of the cockpit. The stern reacted effortlessly to bumps of the throttles and took on minimal water in the six-foot chop going astern. She turned nearly within her own wake at wide open throttle, while barely losing any speed.
