New Model: Rivera 5400 Sport Yacht

Riviera's presents the new 5400 Sport Yacht.  The Sport Yacht series from Riviera has been a success since the down under builder introduced the 3600 in 2005.  Fast forward ten years since the launch of that model and those that followed, and one can see a big design change coming in recent years.  The first Sport Yacht models have been a nice mix of conservative Sportfisherman looks with European styled interiors and single level cockpit deck layout.  That philosophy started to change with the introduction of the 5800 in 2009.  Now this new 5400 Sport Yacht, which follows the 6000 flagship introduced in 2015 shows a more European stance to its design and looks followed by details of practicality. Why am I saying all this because I think the 5400 Sport Yacht is an important turn around to the design of the Riviera Sport Yacht series, and looks more European then ever.  Still the design team of Riviera has been clever to offer something more to its 5400 Sport Yacht, then the typical seventeen meter European counter part; astern galley by the patio door to starboard, and the L-shaped mezzanine settee being two important cases in-point. Versatility is also offered in the 5400 Sport Yacht with a choice of a standard three double cabins layout, or two; third double bunk berth berth cabin replaced by an L-shaped sofa. The 5400 Sport Yacht also offers interesting performance numbers from its Volvo 725hp engines and IPS pod propulsion reaching top speeds up to 34 knots.
