World Premiere for Riviera Sports Motor Yacht at Sydney International Boat Show

Australia's world-class luxury motor yacht builder, Riviera, will host the World Premiere of it's stunning new Sports Motor Yacht at the Sydney International Boat Show beginning on Thursday, August 3.

Riviera and Belize will display a total of nine exceptional luxury motor yachts at the show.

Riviera owner and Chairman Rodney Longhurst said “The vision for the Riviera 68 Sports Motor Yacht came about as a collaboration of our customers and senior design team working together through a series of 3D computer modelled presentations considering what the Riviera of the future could look like and how it could function. It’s a unique blend of our proven history and future meeting together to give our long-term customers their ultimate yacht."

“The owners we spoke with were seeking a true blue-water yacht that combines long range performance with a good turn of speed when its needed, with the ability to fish, dive, or provide the perfect platform to completely relax with family and friends. The Sports Motor Yacht is very versatile with luxury finishes and a practical usability that allows for extended voyaging wherever their cruising dreams take them.”

Moving around the yacht is easy courtesy of generous side decks and higher bulwarks that access the forward deck which has many features and options never seen before on a Riviera.

There is also a pantograph side door from the saloon direct to the side decks, another first for Riviera.

Rodney Longhurst said: "Our display at Cockle Bay in the heart of Sydney will also showcase a range of Riviera Sport Yachts - the 6000, 5400 and 4800 - as well as the adventurous 525 and 445 SUV models. The offshore 52 Enclosed Flybridge model and 43 Open Flybridge will also be on display."

The Belize display will include a detailed presentation of the marque's latest classically-styled motor yacht, the Belize 66, which has recently been announced. The display will also showcase the 54 Daybridge model.

World Premiere Riviera 68 Sports Motor Yacht

The Riviera Sports Motor Yacht collection has been designed to combine the exhilaration of sports performance, superior offshore and extended cruising capabilities with the luxurious comforts for which Riviera is internationally recognised.

The cockpit of the 68 Sports Motor Yacht offers everything a sports fisher or water sports enthusiast could wish for as well as plenty of space for entertaining. The elevated alfresco mezzanine forward of the cockpit includes a large dining area and is connected with the central U-shape gourmet galley through a stainless steel framed door and large awning window that creates one large lifestyle space, positioning the chef at the heart of a very social environment.

On the port side of the mezzanine is a door leading to a staircase and the day head and shower. Adjacent to the day head is a utility room or comfortable crew cabin with direct access to the engine room.

The foredeck on the Sports Motor Yacht can include a large tender and 550kg hydraulic davit. When the tender is launched, this area quickly transforms to a fabulous eight-seater sunken entertainment centre that can be covered with a fold-away bimini.

The saloon features a plush lounge to port and a dining area that can seat up to eight people to starboard. This most relaxing space is enhanced by luxury fabrics, natural timbers and leatherette panelling. A large TV forward of the galley rises at the touch of a button and is comfortably viewable from both lounge and dining areas.

An internal timber staircase provides direct access to the flybridge, a space in which skipper and guests can enjoy extended passages or whilst at anchor.

The wide helm station has been designed to incorporate up to four 22-inch navigation screens.

Guests can relax on lounges along the entire starboard side facing an entertainment unit.

A special feature of this space is a fold-out double bed secreted under the aft lounge, offering a penthouse-like environment.

A stainless steel framed glass door and awning window connect the flybridge with an alfresco dining deck aft.

Versatile and luxurious accommodation

The accommodation deck offers two stateroom options: the four-cabin Classic or the three-cabin Grand Presidential design with full-beam master stateroom.

The World Premiere yacht has been built to include the Classic accommodation layout with a midships master stateroom with ensuite bathroom along the starboard side. The VIP guest stateroom forward includes a walk-around queen-size bed and a private ensuite.

A third cabin aft of the guest stateroom on the port side features twin single beds that can convert to a double while a fourth guest cabin on the starboard side has two full-size pullman-style beds. These two cabins share a bathroom.

Technology at your fingertips

The Riviera Sports Motor Yacht features an array of innovation and technology that includes next generation CZone digital switching which can interface with an iPad.

In the spacious engine room, power for these magnificent motor yachts comes from twin MAN V12 1550 engines delivering 1,550hp (1,140kW) through V-drive shafts. MAN V12 1800 engines delivering 1,800hp (1,324kW) are optional.

Rodney Longhurst said: "We are thrilled with the development of this new collection of Riviera motor yachts that will showcase our world-class design and the skills of our master crafts teams and I am extremely proud of their achievements”.
