Speaking of rods and reels, Rivieras have always been known more for cruisability than fishability, but the company has made a concerted effort to change that. The cockpit of the 41 Flybridge has a pair of fishboxes (which need to have gas-assist struts added to the hatches; as-is, they slam with a bang), a lighted transom livewell, a bait freezer, and a rigging station with a sink and three tackle drawers. When it's time to maneuver on a fish or around the dock, you'll discover that this boat spins with the best of 'em, and thanks to the standard electronic SmartCraft system at the helm, you'll never worry about clunky, failing controls or inaccurate mechanical gauges. And if our test boat's 36.4-mph top end isn't fast enough for you, opt for the 600-bhp Cummins ($36,753) powerplants. They'll cut some travel time from a long day of fishing, which should make relaxing a little easier when it's time to reach for the champagne flutes, stretch out on the tanning pad, or lie down in the stateroom.
