Broker's Comments

This striking Riviera 48 Enclosed Flybridge Sportfisher (and cruiser!) appears in excellent condition and is very attractively priced. She is a terrific boat for extended cruising or just weekends away with family and friends, and will satisfy those with fishing plans too.

This is a true luxury flybridge cruiser, well-built and equipped, and featuring three staterooms, two heads and a large galley, salon and cockpit. Put this one your list to view -- you will not be disappointed.
