Riviera to stage two World Premieres in a major red carpet showcase at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show

Australia's world renowned luxury motor yacht builder, Riviera, will proudly present the World Premieres of two inspiring new models - the sporty and adventurous 395 SUV and the magnificent 72 Sports Motor Yacht - as part of a major red-carpet display at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in Queensland beginning on 24 May 2018.

The on-water display will also showcase a range of models from Riviera's unique collections, the sophisticated Sport Yachts, blue-water Flybridges, the SUVs and the timeless classic Belize models.

Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst said: “We are thrilled to present two World Premieres at the 30th anniversary Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

"The 395 SUV is Riviera's much-awaited under-forty-foot model, offering a generous open cockpit, two spacious staterooms, a large bathroom and an open and comfortable saloon with aft galley.

"She provides a compelling new entree to the Riviera family.

"Our second World Premiere is the 72 Sports Motor Yacht. This stunning model represents the epitome of Riviera's innovation, style and advanced technology, offering discerning owners the exhilaration of sports performance with the luxurious comforts for which Riviera is recognised."

Mr Longhurst said the Riviera and Belize range of designs appeal to a wide scope of motor yachting pursuits and cruising aspirations.

He said the name Riviera was synonymous with ultra-luxury, superior design, and supreme blue-water sea-keeping capabilities.

"Our talented craftspeople pride themselves on the highest level of craftsmanship  with each new Riviera," he said.  "We also partner with worldwide leaders in design, engineering and technology to offer superior motor yachts."

Every model in our Sanctuary Cove showcase will feature the very latest in marine technology, including Glass Cockpit navigation and systems monitoring as well as touch-screen CZone digital switching and joystick controls for superior handling and low-speed manoeuvring.

Mr Longhurst said: "The sporty and adventurous new 395 SUV offers exceptional boating options, combining the single-level entertaining that is in the DNA of our popular Sport Yacht collection with the wide open cockpits and go-anywhere attributes of our classic blue-water flybridge collection.

“We have also introduced a number of innovations that reflect Riviera's commitment to continuous improvement.

"She features an entirely new hull and deck design and raised bulwarks on the side decks to provide an additional level of security when moving forward or aft."

Mr Longhurst said the wide open cockpit is perfectly designed for relaxing and entertaining or as the perfect platform for any water sports. A comprehensive barbecue centre is set across the transom, facing forward and accessed from the swim platform.

"Sunlovers will also enjoy the foredeck that can take a large sunlounge," he said.

"The 395 SUV offers two generous staterooms and a large bathroom on the accommodation deck as well as a spacious saloon with a fully-equipped aft galley, dinette opposite and a forward helm to port. Sunroof hatches are set on the port and starboard sides of the SUV hardtop, above the helm and forward lounge."

Power for the 395 SUV comes from twin Volvo Penta D6 IPS 500 turbo diesel engines providing 272kw (370hp) with IPS 10 drive units. With Riviera, all Volvo Penta systems and drives are covered by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty to complement the Riviera five-year limited structural warranty.
