New Model: Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht

The new 6000 Sport Yacht from Riviera takes the mantle as the most European looking of all the models from the down under boat builder, making a huge statement on the type of clients it wants to attract.  Taking the flagship role and replacing the 5800 of the Sport Yacht range, the 6000 is a fully enclosed hard top express, which makes the main deck the living part of life on-board. Latest design trends and more abound on the 6000 Sport Yacht. For example its aft deck rewrites the plan in a very original layout, with two settees; an L-shape dinette to port and chaise lounge to starboard located in a mezzanine looking outwards style. Originally the stern bulk head is reserved as a spacious barbecue wet bar area.  Inside we have an astern galley, C-shape dinette to port with sofa opposite, and a helm-station to starboard. Below deck space abounds on the 6000 Sport Yacht and presents a three double cabins three shower heads standard plan, or a four double cabin three heads optional layout. The fourth double bunk cabin located to port side takes space from a C-shape settee as featured in the standard plan. Very interesting is also the working room located in between the midships full beam owners cabin, and the engine room of which it features direct access. The Rivera 6000 Sport Yacht is twin Volvo 725hp powered, with IPS pod propulsion. Max speeds are 31 knots, with a 28 cruise, this giving a range of 268 nautical miles.
