New Model: Riviera 585 SUV

Riviera continue to expand and evolve its SUV series, possibly one if not the most hybrid of style yachts range in existence today.  The new Rivera 585 SUV was presented in the 2023 Sanctuary Cove boat show and sits as second in size model of the range, behind the 2021 launched 645 and replacing the 575 SUV model.  The 585 SUV is a total new yacht compared to the 575 SUV which was an evolution of the 565 presented in 2012, being fifty centimetres wider and over a meter longer then its predecessor, and thanks to this can take Volvo's current largest twelve litre block offered in 900 or 1000hp engines with IPS pod drives.  The 585 SUV offers an interior with three double cabins and three shower heads; two of which; master stateroom and VIP being ensuited. The main deck is made for entertainment with an astern galley layout, and an outdoor-indoor dining area which is something unique to Riviera's SUV and Sports Motor Yacht range.  The Riviera 585 SUV offers an option for a crew cabin or utility room located at midships in between the engine room and full beam owners suite.

New Model: Riviera 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition

Presented in the fall of 2022, the Riviera 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition comes as a replacement to the 4800 after five years in production.  Even though called the 4600 she is in reality a bit longer and wider to the outgoing model.  The new 4600 Sport Yacht comes straight out with the luxurious refinement of the Platinum Edition, a feature Rivera introduced in 2019 for the Sport Yacht range which today features three models.  The 4600 Sport Yacht welcomes you aboard the generous hydraulic swim platform, which is followed by a garage, designed to store a range of water sports equipment under the cockpit and can be accessed through an electrically operated door.  A new entertainer's cockpit has been created with a wrap-around lounge across the transom and port side with a timber dining table, and a wet-bar with barbecue located to starboard.  The airy saloon flows to the cockpit through a sliding glass door and awning window. A fully equipped U-shape galley is located on the port side of the saloon space, immediately aft of the helm. A servery and bar unit are opposite. The plush dining space is forward on the starboard side, featuring a large timber table surrounded by a luxurious U-shape lounge that will seat up to six people.  The Riviera 4600 Sport Yacht provides three staterooms and two bathrooms on the light-filled accommodation deck including a full-beam master amidships featuring full head height, a central king size bed and large hull windows that fill the space with natural light.  A two cabin version is also available, replacing the bunk third cabins with a L-shaped lounging sofa.  The Rivera 4600 Sport Yacht is powered by twin Volvo 600hp, with IPS pod drives.  At launch she was offered with the smaller 480hp Volvos and IPS combo but Riviera has since then removed these engines as standard, and with the dry weight of nineteen tons this was a correct call.

Project: Riviera 645 SUV

Australia’s largest luxury motor yacht builder, Riviera, has just announced an innovative new yacht, the 645 SUV. Riviera pioneered the SUV concept in 2012 and has since continually refined this design that brings together a single-level sports yacht entertainer with the blue water pedigree and cockpit of a flybridge yacht.

In addition, there is a superb alfresco deck dining and gourmet galley with island bench, a side saloon door leading to generous walk-around side decks, and a foredeck that is a separate, lavish entertainment hub. Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst says the decision to introduce the 645 SUV came after requests from current Riviera owners and the global dealer network, resulting in a number of off-the-plan orders being received.

With the 1550’s, cruise speed will be around 30 knots and wide-open throttle around 34 knots.

A walkway beneath the windscreen allows easy washing or attaching covers.  The bowsprit integrated into the flared hull enhances functionality and reflects a contemporary design.  In the fully covered alfresco deck are two comfortable day lounges either side – the starboard lounge can also convert to a sunbed. There is simply no better place to relax, enjoy a meal, take in the view or all the cockpit action.  Convenient access to the engine room is via a large hatch in the alfresco floor with a stainless-steel ladder beneath.  Joining the alfresco deck with the galley and saloon are a tinted glass sliding door and servery window set in a superior stainless-steel frame. A gourmet galley resides immediately to port, while the internal staircase to starboard, incorporating beneath a large freezer, liquor cabinet and glass storage.  As one of five luxury living zones, the saloon also offers two opposing lounge areas that can seat six to eight guests in total comfort.  4D Designs, in collaboration with the Riviera design team, has also excelled with the accommodation plan with a full-beam master suite bathed in natural light from large hull windows, a queen-sized island berth, chaise lounge, walk-in robe and ensuite. Guests are afforded a VIP stateroom with ensuite/day head forward and twin bunk cabin, all in exceptional luxury.  The three-sided enclosed flybridge offers superb all-round visibility and indulges its occupants in complete comfort. There is a supremely comfortable lounge opposite the main helm to starboard, perfect to stretch out, relax and chat to the skipper whilst underway. With an extended awning, the Flybridge is open at the rear and strata glass clears can then fully seal this area. An optional aft helm is available for convenience when fishing or docking.  The main helm station offers twin pedestal-mounted leather seats and places controls, screens and switches close to hand and in clear view.  From here, the captain can command the choice of two highly efficient power and drive options, being twin diesel Volvo 725hp, or Man 800hp.   With Man 800hp the Riviera 50 Sports Motor Yacht delivers over 30 knots at wide open throttle, and  has a range of 336nm at 22 knots with 10 per cent reserve fuel.  The official launch of the 50 Sports Motor Yacht will be followed by her world premiere tour which will include Australia and the United States.

Project: Riviera 50 Sports Motor Yacht

Australian luxury motor yacht manufacturer Riviera has unveiled plans for the new 50 Sports Motor Yacht that define the form, function and feel of the quintessential blue-water yacht. The Riviera design team in collaboration with 4D Designs in the 50 SMY, created a remarkably spacious new yacht brimming with unique features. This sophisticated new design draws on the heritage of Riviera’s larger and successful 64, 68 and 72 Sports Motor Yacht models. Among the key sports motor yacht design elements are a fore-deck that transforms from tender storage to sun-lounge, a sports cockpit, an all-weather mezzanine seating area that affords alfresco dining and entertainment, a stately three-sided glass-enclosed flybridge, and a full-beam master stateroom as centrepiece of a three-stateroom, twin-bathroom accommodation plan, all in a hull measuring just over fifteen metres in length. The exterior of the 50 Sports Motor Yacht is all about the harmonious marriage of the handsomely sweeping superstructure, unmistakably Riviera in its profile, with a sporty, large-volume hull form. The Riviera 50 Sports Motor Yacht can be powered from twin Volvo 700hp with IPS pod drive propulsion, or Man 800hp with a V-drive line shaft set up. Both engines should deliver top speeds of over 30 knots.

The VIP en-suite bathroom is located to aft to starboard.  Additional guest accommodation is provided to port with a clever twin single berth cabin that at the press of a button, the inboard berth moves sideways to create a restful double. This cabin also has en-suite access to the port-side day head bathroom. To starboard is a further guest cabin with two adult sized Pullman beds.  A wide companionway leads aft to the Riviera 64 Sports Motor Yacht’s full-beam master stateroom, which is bathed in light from large hull side windows and features a central king-sized bed.

New Model: Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht Series II

Riviera presents the new 4800 Sport Yacht Series II, part also of the new Platinum edition for all the three Sport Yacht models. Indeed, so significant were the model refinements that Riviera has designated it a Series II, recognizable outside by the full glazing window on the hull side.  Improving on an already very popular model, however, is no easy task. The original 4800 spent twelve months in design and development to optimize the aesthetics and space utilization. The 4800 emerged from this process as a masterpiece in every sense, as intellectual as it is functional.  First of the new features is an extended swim platform with flowing curves to the outboard ends. It is the gateway to a generous garage that accommodates a 2.7-metre RIB with the help of guide rails and Muir winch.  Next on the features list is a cockpit wet bar including bench-top, refrigerator, ice-maker, sink with folding tap and double electric BBQ, serviced by an extraction fan and fold-down lid.  Twin electric individually operated opening sunroofs fill the cockpit with light and fresh air. Slide back the stainless steel-framed glass door; open out the awning window and the cockpit flows into the saloon as one unified space. Step inside and you’re then welcomed by the walnut’s warmth and drawn in by the views.  A saloon cocktail cabinet with bottle storage drawer and drawers for glass storage is another excellent addition to the vessel’s entertainment attributes. The galley is equipped for anything from a weekend to a week on the water, with the Platinum Edition featuring new solid-surface bench tops.  Further rewards are in store in the accommodation deck as floor space has been increased in the forward mater stateroom, along with a larger starboard hanging locker, three-drawer chest and 32-inch TV.  For a perfect night’s sleep, a king-size walk-around berth with innerspring mattress and storage under berth, including drawers and gas struts for easy access. The bed base is luxuriously finished in leather and fine cabinetry. A superbly appointed private bathroom completes the master suite. While hull windows either side of the bed bring in natural light and accent the outside views.  A warm and inviting second stateroom features twin-single beds to port that slide together to create a double and a further single bed to starboard. Continuous glass hull windows to both port and starboard feature opening port holes. This is a perfect stateroom for family or guests. A second bathroom forward of the guest stateroom also serves as the day head.

New Model: Riviera 545 SUV

Riviera present the new 545 SUV replacing the 525 SUV, and powered with twin Volvo 625hp and or optional 725hp.  Very similar on the outside and nearly identical on the outside and main deck configuration the new 545 difference will come inside in the lower deck with a full-beam master suite offering an exceptional amount of space and storage, king-sized walk-around bed, L-shaped lounge to starboard, bureau and large hanging wardrobe to port, plus a generous en-suite bathroom equipped with designer fittings. Being amidships, the suite enjoys optimum stability and quietness, while topside windows to both port and starboard afford unimpeded water views.  Guests or family members are pampered with an elegantly appointed forward VIP stateroom, and a starboard twin cabin with bunk berths, plus a day head with glass shower recess and stylish vanity.  The cockpit is well configured for fishing and water sports, along with outdoor entertaining. It offers fixed transom seating as well as a three person mezzanine lounge to port. A double barbecue unit resides to starboard on the mezzanine, adjacent to the saloon entry for easy access back-and-forth to the aft-placed galley and cocktail cabinet.  U-shaped and highly functional, the aft galley is a gourmet chef’s delight with a solid surface bench top, electric cook-top, convection microwave oven and an optional drawer dishwasher within handy reach of the stainless-steel sink.  The 545 SUV’s rear bulkhead opens to the cockpit via an awning window comprising tinted, tempered glass framed in polished stainless steel. Sliding windows on both sides of the saloon and two large overhead sunroofs ensure fresh air and natural light invigorate the space.  There’s an equally stunning view for the driver and passenger through the large windscreen. Riviera’s designers have placed the wheel almost on the center-line for superb vision, separating the helm’s twin pedestal seats to allow easy access.  Guests can also immerse themselves in the driving experience from the L-shaped lounge to port, just aft of the helm. It has a hi-lo dining table, while a three-seat lounge resides to starboard. The latter has a removable center seat that becomes an ottoman for additional dining seating. A fold-out table then extends the dinner party if needed. Engine technicians need never enter the yacht’s interior as engine room access is provided through a strut-assisted hatch just aft of the saloon door.

Improve-it = Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht

The Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht has been often said to be one of the prettiest Riviera yachts, and its Platinum Edition refinement under the perfectionist eyes of Mr Longhurst and the highly-regarded Riviera design team takes this popular yacht to another level.  Twin Volvo 725hp with IPS pod drives are housed in the 6000’s cleanly laid-out engine-room, a place where artistic form meets functionality, and they simply purr when the vessel is underway. Delivering a smooth and quiet ride when cruising, the 6000 accelerates briskly to a very sporty top speed.  The main deck hard top is extended to enhance the sleekness, while also integrating an electric sunroof. Sitting below, it’s cosy, cocooned and comfortable. Step inside the saloon, and the galley is located to port, now featuring waterfall galley bench tops with stainless steel sinks and mixer tap.  Glass skylights richly illuminate the aft area of the saloon, and a radar arch allows the sunroof to slide beneath. Forward is a sunroof that, with the addition of side-opening windows and aft awning window, creates a seamless indoor/outdoor world.  The starboard-side lounge now sees a center seat base slide out to become an ottoman and includes a small fold-out timber table. The dining area lounge base is upholstered to give an opulent look and the seating in this area has been extended.  New-style Pompanette helm seats with Alcantara inserts and feature stitching are a glamorous feature of the helm station.  Moving below, you come to the atrium, a corridor filled with light to accentuate the crisp architectural look and feel. Accommodation layout options vary according to buyer preferences but include the option of a palatial “Presidential” master suite.  Throughout the yacht the list of refinements is subtle yet significant, showing considerable thought for the vessel’s overall user-friendliness.  For that final touch of Platinum, grey caulking is utilised in teak decks instead of the conventional black.  The highly efficient hull designs draw on both Volvo Penta and Riviera's extensive experience with the Inboard Propulsion System fitted to date to more than 700 Riviera vessels. From an engineering perspective, all Platinum Edition Sport Yachts have the ability to be gyro stabilized.
