Riviera strengthens its competitiveness on the world stage even further with the launch of the new 52 Enclosed Flybridge

The 2015 Australian Marine Industry Exporter of the Year, iconic Riviera, has announced an impressive new flybridge yacht to further enhance the much-loved luxury marque’s competiveness on the world stage.

The supremely seaworthy new Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge will make its Sydney Premiere as part of a stunning red-carpet, on-water showcase at the 2015 Sydney International Boat Show (July 30-August 3).

Riviera CEO Wes Moxey said the new 52 Enclosed model is the newest addition to Riviera’s world-class collection and more accurately reflects a nomenclature based on the International Organisation for Standardisation’s ISO guidelines as well as the European Union’s CE mark.

“Having now built over 5100 yachts throughout our rich 35-year heritage, the name Riviera has become synonymous around the world for its hallmark quality, luxury, lifestyle, style, innovation, blue-water sea-keeping abilities and unrivalled owner support,” said Mr Moxey.

“The new 52 Enclosed Flybridge is an exciting example of Riviera refinement,” he said. “She is testament to our genuine desire and commitment to compete with the best in the luxury yacht business globally.”

Mr Moxey said that competing internationally under the ISO and CE industry standards enhances Riviera’s scope to grow global brand awareness and customer loyalty to even greater heights.

“Our resolve is further strengthened by the fact Riviera has recently been announced as the 2015 Australian Marine Industry’s Best Larger Export Performer, as well as the 2015 Australian Marine Exporter of the Year,” he said.

“The new 52 Enclosed Flybridge design features a wide range of standard inclusions that, in the past, might have been considered optional, including the innovative Glass Cockpit navigation systems that make boating so much easier and more enjoyable and which integrate seamlessly with the intuitive CZone digital switching technology embraced by Riviera and now available on every new model.

“The new model features a modern new helm design with enough room for three 17-inch screens, as well as many more-subtle refinements from bow sprit to swim platform that enhance her onboard liveability and luxury lifestyle attributes.

“The 52 Enclosed has a flexible accommodation plan that comprises three staterooms with portside master and forward VIP guest stateroom, two bathrooms and supreme levels of comfort. In fact the forward stateroom can be the master if owners desire, while the third stateroom is also very generous with full-sized side-by-side bunks and plenty of storage.

“She also offers new fixed transom seating, with options for storage or live bait tank, as well as a new cockpit wet bar, larger freezer capacity and smart storage solutions.

“Of course, these thoughtful considerations for our Riviera family of owners are a key part of our ethos of doing all we can to help our valued owners achieve … ‘the ultimate boating experience’.”

The new Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge comes standard with the proven and popular twin IPS2-950 pod configuration with D11 engines, each delivering 725hp.

“Having now launched hundreds of pod-driven luxury pleasure boats, Riviera is at the forefront of a marine revolution offering impressive fuel economy, high performance, quiet operation, more internal space and, of course, joystick docking and driving control,” said Mr Moxey.

“The innovative joystick offers slow-speed maneuverability when backing up on a prize catch, in addition to precise docking. Indeed a skipper – either solo or with a novice crew – can simply push and twist the joystick to make the boat respond immediately, pivoting in place or crabbing sideways into a berth that’s just long enough to fit the vessel,” he said.

“The 52 Enclosed Flybridge – which carries 3500-litre fuel tanks for longer-range cruising – has joysticks at the helm and to starboard in the cockpit, as well as an aft flybridge docking station to starboard which can be located on the port-side if owners desire.”

Riviera’s global family of luxury yacht owners and their guests are invited to help celebrate the Sydney Premiere of the new 52 Enclosed Flybridge at the Let Us Entertain You spectacular on the Saturday night of Sydney International Boat Show (Saturday, August 1). The event will be held at the Riviera and Belize marina display at Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour, from 6.30pm-9.30pm.
