Project: Rivera 39 Sports Motor Yacht

During the Sanctuary Cove boat show and official launch of Riviera second in size small model, the 395 SUV, the down under boat builder revealed details for a new entry level flybridge the 39 Sports Motor Yacht.  This new Riviera takes smaller flybridge motor cruiser spot from the current 43 Open Flybridge, and by my understanding since it is vanished from the Riviera website it also replaces the 39 Open Flybridge project as presented in end Summer 2017 with the 395 SUV.   For the 39 Sports Motor Yacht, Riviera did not just change the name and some decals but also updated the flybridge design and layout to a more modern European layout of a forward helm station and L-shaped sitting dinette to port side, and wet bar and bench settee looking to the helm to starboard.   A wrap around fiberglass spoiler also fills more the flybridge making it more sporty.  For those who remember the layout of the 39 Open Flybridge project was of a more sportfish design with a back located twin settee helm station, and L-shaped dinette forward of the fly.  For the remaining fly and lower decks the Riviera 39 Sports Motor Yacht is the same as the Open Flybridge or the 395 SUV; with a living all located on the main deck; galley and sitting in the interior, and a twin cabin five berth lower deck layout.  Power will come from twin Volvo 435hp engines with IPS pod drives.
