Carver certainly did well with the 28-foot Riviera during its production run in the 1980s. It is a compact family cruiser w/ aft cabin whose affordable price and unique two-cabin layout, struck a responsive cord with many boaters. Built on a solid fibreglass hull, this unique model features an open-air centre cockpit. The wraparound windshield offers great visibility and the large side windows offer great cross ventilation. The canvas top can also be easily removed; this can even be one in two separate sections for ultimate versatility. The port side of the cockpit features a cockpit table, which can be converted to a small, yet functional, berth when not in use. A handy movable backrest allows four to sit around the table and reveals a large passenger seat up forward when flipped to the aft position. Just ahead of the passenger seat is a large storage locker that doubles as a dry bar. Below the raised seat, you'll find plenty of additional storage for large items such as fenders and safety gear.Off to starboard, the helm area features a functional dash with plenty of room to flush and surface-mount electronics. The helm seat is quite large and below it you will even find more storage space. he forward cabin of the Riviera is quite spacious and offers ample headroom throughout. The galley to starboard features an alcohol/electric stove, under-counter refrigerator, and ample counter and storage space.Please submit any and ALL offers - your offer may be accepted!

One of the other main features that I like about this model is the fact that it is powered by a pair of direct drive inboards, namely a pair of 220 Crusaders. The direct drive configuration is a somewhat unique feature for a boat of this size. The placement of the props in relation to the hull especially with the boat's relatively wide beam of 11 feet, 1 inch allow for very nimble close-quarters handling. Granted, you may not get the same top-end performance that you would find on a similarly sized boat powered with outdrives, but this boat is designed and does very well as a comfortable cruiser. Large aft sun pad for the sun worshippers and a nice size swim platform at stern with swim ladder. All original woodwork and upholstery. Freshwater pump needs repair. Low pressure in line. Washdown pump needs replacing. Aft canvas should be replaced. Doesn't match color. Only 860 total hours. A terrific, affordable family cruiser that enjoys separate sleeping cabins for kids. Seller has owned for last 8 yrs and has been in boating business for years.
