A mirror-backed cocktail cabinet separates the dining area from the forward stateroom. Manufacturers Description
Riviera’s first-ever express, the 4000 Offshore is a well-built family cruiser with conservative lines (note the absence of an integrated swim platform) and a surprisingly spacious interior. She’s constructed on a solid fiberglass hull with a wide 14'4" beam and shallow keel for directional stability. Below decks, the oak-finished interior provides a sleeping capacity for four people, including a large forward cabin with an island berth. The salon dinette converts to double berth, and the Riviera’s large head compartment includes a separate shower stall. A mirror-backed cocktail cabinet separates the dining area from the forward stateroom. On deck, the cockpit has a double helm seat, a second dinette with a molded-in freezer and sink, and a hydraulic midship hatch for engine room access. (Note that the Riviera has a spacious engine room—something that wouldn’t be possible with a conventional midcabin interior.) Additional features include a cockpit transom door, radar arch, swim platform, and a bow pulpit. As Written Up in Boat Test by David Lockwood
The 4000 Offshore's layout is actually a cross between a flybridge boat and a sportsboat. The cockpit, which can be teaked, is as big as a Riviera 36 Convertible's and is one big deep well with room to fish, party or picnic outdoors.
Underfloor is storage in twin oval-shaped fish, fender or livebait tanks, while the cockpit sides are graced with a number of compartments for keeping the odds and ends in place along the way.
Take two steps from the cockpit and you are out of the sunroom and into the lounge room. Seating is what you'll find here, and lots of it -finished in first-grade marine vinyl with piping.
There's a two-person bench seat behind the skipper's two-person bench, and a huge L-shaped lounge on the port side. In all, there is room to seat eight bodies out of the sun.
The deck around the helm lifts up on hydraulic rams to reveal the engines. Access to them is excellent.
To get to the bow, whether for sunbaking (a sun lounge up front would be nice) or checking that the anchor chain stacks neatly when the skipper hits the button on the helm, you simply step up and stroll around the wide bulwarks flanking the cabin.
The thick stainless bowrail helps you keep your footing, and it has been raked in line with the windscreen and the hardtop or targa arch to generate the boat's sporty lines. And, it should be said, wherever you look on the upper deck, the finish is good enough to cut it at marinas around the world. Disclaimer
