37' Riviera 37 Flybridge

$275,000 | 2004 | Newport Beach, CA


“Hele Mai” is the nicest 37 Riviera on the market today! 

“Hele Mai” is perfectly suited for a couple or small family and  guests for local, extended, and even blue water cruising!  Design starts with a hull, and Riviera, a preeminent builder in Australia, a land surrounded by open oceans, is renowned for hull forms. The 37 Riviera is  stable, soft riding, responsive, with exceptional tracking hull at all speeds. Her  build is solid as well.   With two collision bulkheads and a water tight bulkhead and hefty stringers, there is no creaking or groaning underway.

She’s a sportsfisher at heart, and she’s rigged to fish if that’s your thing. She is also a modern cruising yacht that features a surprisingly crew friendly configuration. Each space is perfectly proportioned and surprisingly generous.  There is plenty of room in the cockpit to fish, lounge or entertain. Her salon is open and accommodating. High gloss teak sets off against views of the water through big bright windows all around.  The galley is bright, spacious, fully featured with generous countertops and storage. The forward sleeping quarters are bright, airy, replete with considerable storage, ventilation and good light. The head is large, and features a separate shower stall. The dramatic flybridge, with hardtop and a full enclosure, is a superb vantage point whether  spotting fish, or reading a book.

Her owners have upgraded all of her systems since they purchased her in 2019. In 2020 she received all new electronics.  In 2022, she was repowered with Cummins 6BTA 5,9’s.  If you are in the market for a very nice, versatile, and well maintained boat, “Hele Mai”  is worth a look!

Engine Room

The engines are perfectly placed below the salon, and the engine room is well sound proofed and quiet, in part due to the hatch (door) being located in the cockpit.  Engine checks or full service can be carried out without disturbing an immaculate interior, and without risk of mess.  The engine room is neat and tidy, and well organized.  Her original Cummins 6BTA’s were replaced in 2022 with new Cummins reman motors, and now show just 151 hours!  At that time, her Twin Disc MG5050 gears were also removed from the boat and rebuilt. Her Onan 7KW MDKAV genset was also removed, and a major service was completed. It just made sense since access was easy!
