Riviera’s 6000 Sport Yacht – Middle East Premiere at the 2017 Dubai International Boat Show

The stunning luxury motor yacht acclaimed internationally as The Ultimate Entertainer is set to make her Middle East Premiere when Riviera Australia – in partnership with SF Yachts – welcomes visitors to the Dubai International Boat Show from 28 February to 4 March 2017.

The very stylish Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht is certainly one of the most popular models created by Australia’s favourite and most-awarded luxury motor yacht builder – already some 75 new models have been purchased by luxury boating enthusiasts around the world.

Francesco Pitea of SF Yachts, Riviera’s dedicated dealer based in the United Arab Emirates, says Riviera is synonymous on a global scale with hallmark luxury, innovation, blue-water sea-keeping capability and superior owner enjoyment.

“Riviera builds world-class luxury motor yachts from 36-77 feet across five distinctive model collections and is driven to enhance the fun and fulfillment of its global family of over 5200 discerning luxury motor yacht owners,” says Mr Pitea.

“Also on display at Dubai International Marine Club will be the palatial flagship of the Riviera fleet: the 77 Enclosed Flybridge that has proven so very popular with our Middle Eastern clients.

“The 77 Enclosed blends brilliantly Riviera’s world-renowned offshore cruising and blue-water fishing capabilities with all the comforts you could possibly imagine.”

Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht – Middle East Premiere

The sleek and sophisticated Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht design has received high praise from respected international boating media as a high-performance blue-water vessel akin to a six-star luxury resort.

She is supremely comfortable with clever alfresco lifestyle features, ultramodern technology as well as palatial appointments, and her design flexibility is further evidence of Riviera’s commitment to being able to personalise a yacht for a wide range of boating pursuits and individual styles.

“The 6000 Sport Yacht features up to four luxurious staterooms, or three with either a lower lounge or the impressive ‘presidential design’ that provides an enlarged floor plan for the full-beam master suite, as well as three bathrooms and a convenient utility room or optional crew cabin,” said Riviera chairman and owner Rodney Longhurst.

“She boasts an impressive array of luxury living and entertaining features – hydraulic boarding platform, large open cockpit with BBQ centre and undercover seating and dining areas, electric sunroofs and fixed skylights in her spacious saloon and a colossal-sized sun pad on her forward deck,” he said.

“Her impressive sports-styled helm features the touch-screen Glass Cockpit navigation and systems monitoring as well as touch-screen CZone digital switching, and a joystick for superior handling and maneuvering in tight quarters. An additional joystick is located in her cockpit.”

Base power is the proven Volvo Penta D11-IPS950 propulsion system with twin diesel engines and IPS20 pod-drives (2 x 533kW/725hp) which offer impressive fuel efficiency, low noise levels, long cruising range and a high top-end speed.

77 Enclosed Flybridge – on display

Complementing her sleek lines, sweeping sheer and sports-inspired targa, Riviera’s 77 Enclosed Flybridge is a seriously long-range luxury motor yacht that was built to go offshore in superb style.

She boasts striking safety glass feature panels that visually link her contemporary, recessed hull windows to provide a sophisticated and smooth hull finish, an expansive cockpit and mezzanine that seamlessly connects with the aft gourmet galley and spacious saloon.

On the accommodation deck there are four large staterooms, including an immense full-beam master, along with four bathrooms and an optional, self-contained crew cabin.

“The state-of-the-art, fully enclosed flybridge features a forward helm while an external rear tournament station on the rear deck ensures clear cockpit observation when docking, or when the fishing action is underway,” said Mr Longhurst.

“An optional massive and lavish sun pad and casual dining/sitting area can be located on the foredeck, enhancing the 77’s luxury lifestyle and relaxation attributes even further.

“There is also upgraded air-conditioning throughout to cater to the extremely high temperatures of the Middle East and our owners really do appreciate the fact that all exposed structural areas have undergone additional heat-curing treatments so they can withstand the harsh climactic conditions of the region.”

The 77 Enclosed Flybridge is powered by twin MAN V12 shaft-drive engines (2 x 1900hp/1397kW) and, courtesy of the Quickshift gearboxes, owners have the choice to incorporate an Express Joystick System (EJS) that smoothly and simultaneously actuates and controls engines, transmissions, propellers and thrusters.

The Riviera Advantage

Riviera is recognised as being at the forefront of the luxury motor yacht market, not only in terms of superior build quality but through fully embracing innovative and easy-to-use systems and technology onboard its internationally acclaimed designs.

“A 5-year warranty on all Volvo Penta systems is now standard with every new Riviera, spanning Volvo Penta helm stations, steering and propellers as well as the major componentry of their high performance drive systems and fuel-efficient engines,” said Mr Longhurst.

“Available worldwide, this extended warranty complements the Riviera 5-year structural warranty and provides even greater peace of mind for our valued Riviera boating family members that ensures they enjoy ‘the time of their lives’.”

If you are in Dubai for the largest marine luxury, leisure and lifestyle event in the Middle East and North Africa region, the Riviera and SF Yachts team would be delighted to welcome you aboard the 6000 Sport Yacht and the 77 Enclosed Flybridge at MD-64-66 at display site MD-65 at Dubai International Boat Show from 28 February to 4 March 2017.

In addition to the two stunning Rivieras on display, the team will proudly provide details of every other new Riviera design, including the luxurious and long-range Sports Motor Yacht that is scheduled to make her World Premiere mid-2017.”
