Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht – Premiere

The sleek and sophisticated Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht has been described as a high-performance blue-water yacht akin to a six-star luxury resort.

She is supremely comfortable with unique alfresco lifestyle features and ultramodern technology as well as luxurious appointments.

“She includes an impressive array of features including an hydraulic boarding platform, tender garage and large open cockpit with a gourmet barbecue unit, and a colossal-sized sun pad on her forward deck,” said Mr McCafferty.

The cockpit connects seamlessly with the spacious salon through large sliding glass door and awning window. Inside, past the fully equipped U-shape aft galley, the salon includes a large U-shape dinette to port with a lounge opposite and comprehensive helm on the starboard side. The salon is flooded with natural light through wrap-around windows, electric sunroofs and fixed skylights.

Riviera's Sport Yacht hallmarks are embedded deeply in the DNA of the 4800: sleek styling, luxurious single-level living and entertaining layout and superb sea-keeping capabilities.

“From the cockpit, with its generous seating over two lounges, full wet bar and double barbecue to an entertainment zone on the forward deck with its large sun pad with folding back rest, this is a sport yacht designed for entertaining,” said Mr McCafferty

“Natural light fills the expansive interior living space with its aft galley and spacious dinette opposite. An electric salon sunroof slides open for additional light and fresh air, or an amazing view of the stars at night.”

The command centre of the 4800 Sport Yacht features the latest Volvo Penta and Garmin Glass Cockpit navigation and systems monitoring, with two 12-inch multi-function screens.

The 4800’s accommodation layout gives owners a large atrium lower lounge that can comfortably seat up to five adults. The luxurious master stateroom forward features large hull windows for natural lighting, a queen-sized walk-around bed and a contemporary styled en suite. The guest cabin amidships features three adult-sized single beds. There’s the option of the two port side beds sliding together to create a double.  A second bathroom is on the port side immediately forward of this cabin.

Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht - also on display at Norwalk Boat Show

The 5400 Sport Yacht has impressed owners and boat show visitors around the world since her launch early last year.

“The three-stateroom, two-bathroom 5400 model is an evolution of the luxury single-level living design for which Riviera’s Sport Yacht series is highly prized and awarded,” said Mr McCafferty.

“The forward deck features a wonderful sun lounge and, in the cockpit, a sunroof slides open at the touch of a button so you can also enjoy the sunshine out of the wind. A large tender garage is accessed from the deep boarding platform.

"This is a true entertainer’s cockpit, flowing past the aft gourmet galley and spacious salon through a large sliding glass door and awning window that opens out and places the chef right in the center of the social environment."

The sports-inspired centerline helm console provides excellent visibility and ergonomics so that all critical navigation electronics, comprehensive engine instrumentation and vessel controls are within easy reach. An L-shape lounge in the port forward quarter beside the helm offers guests a panoramic view.

“The accommodation deck of the 5400 Sport Yacht features a luxurious midships full-beam master stateroom with ensuite, a spacious VIP guest stateroom forward and the option for either a port side guest stateroom or an accommodation atrium lounge.”

Base power for the 5400 is the Volvo Penta D11-IPS800 propulsion system with twin D11 turbo diesel engines and IPS20 pod-drives (460kW/626hp each). Owners have the option of the D11-IPS950 system featuring twin D11 engines and IPS20 pod-drives (533kW/725hp each). All Volvo Penta systems are covered by an industry-leading five-year warranty.
