Project: Riviera 4400 Sport Yacht Series II

Riviera will launch at the soon to come Sydney boat show the Series II of the 4400 Sport Yacht model, which will feature a redesign of the exterior with some important visible changes to this successful model which presented in 2007 has sold since then over seventy units.  Considering the World economy was in a recession this was a super result by Riviera for this model.  The Series II main difference will be the feature of large side windows on the hull from fore to midships, and redesign of the hardtop also with larger glassed surfaces and now looking more aggressive and extended.  The coach roof of the 4400 Sport Yacht Series II looks a bit similar to that of the 5800 but maintains the traditional feel of the original design.  Other changes will be better headroom in the midships cabin, larger dash which take bigger electronics displays, and a seat located aft by the bathing platform.  A feature which has been much appreciated in the 5800 Sport Yacht.  The 4400 Sport Yacht Series II standard power will be for twin IPS600 with 435hp Volvo engines.  But the new Series II will also offer the choice of twin  Cummins 480hp with ZF Zeus aft looking pod drives.
