Comfort in remote locations
With a fuel capacity of 3700L, she has the ability to venture to remote fishing locations that most boats can’t excess, giving our clients the best possible chance to catch that fish of a lifetime.
The fully air-conditioned enclosed flybridge offers shade and coolness from the intense sun in the tropics, which is a massive comfort on it’s own. The rear seats of the flybridge become the best seats in the house while watching the lures and unlike most boats of this size, there’s plenty of room for like minded anglers to join you.

Meet Fascination II
Fascination II was commissioned in 2006 at the Sydney International Boat Show by Riviera Luxury Yachts who partnered up with MTU to design a serious game fishing cruiser to showcase to the world their ability to build a prestigious game boat. Her name is derived from MTU’s motto FASCINATION WITH POWER and is the second of four boats built during with their joint venture together. Under the watchful eye of legendary marlin fishing captain Bobby Jones, the riviera boat was specifically customised to suit serious offshore fishing charters and in her first two years Fascination II steamed between many boat shows including Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast then up the coastline to Lizard Island. She then went on to fish 2006 and 2007 heavy tackle seasons in Cairns and with a handful of granders under her belt, she definitely raised the bar and matched it with the top of the charter fleet at the time. Fasination II is a great example of what Riviera boats can achieved through a specific customisation even though they are not renowned for building hard core fishing boats.
The Riviera flag ship boat of game fishing has a luxurious silver platinum hull enclosed flybridge Riviera 51 powered by twin 8V MTU 2000 series engines, she’s fitted with twin disc quick shift gear boxes & topped off with a tall shiny black marlin tower.
