Australia’s favorite and most awarded luxury yacht builder Riviera has announced a superb showcase of nine world-class motor yacht designs – including two Miami Premieres – for the Miami International Boat Show in Florida, USA from 16-20 February 2017.

Riviera’s hallmark premium craftsmanship will be proudly on display on the President’s Day weekend with full model line-ups from both the marque’s stylish Sport Yacht and adventurous Riviera SUV series, as well as very popular designs from the Riviera Flybridge and Belize collections.

The Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht and Riviera 575 SUV designs will be on display for the first time at the new Miami Marine Stadium location on Rickenbacker Causeway, Virginia Key which is just minutes from the city center, ensuring visitors enjoy easy access by both land and water.

Also on display will be the sleek 6000, 5400 and 3600 Sport Yachts, the impressive 525 and 445 SUV designs, the supremely seaworthy 52 Enclosed Flybridge and the timeless classic Belize 54 Daybridge.

“Our stunning red-carpet showcase in Miami will demonstrate how we continue to enhance the fun and lifestyle fulfillment of our growing global Riviera Family of discerning luxury motor yacht owners,” said Riviera’s US-based international sales director, Chris McCafferty.

Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht – Miami Premiere

The 4800 Sport Yacht boasts a multitude of entertaining features with two spacious staterooms, two bathrooms, alfresco entertaining seating in the cockpit, foredeck lounge, tender garage, aft galley and spacious salon, as well as an atrium lounge that serves as the perfect retreat for owners.

All the Sport Yacht series hallmarks are embedded deeply in her DNA – sleek styling, luxurious single-level living and entertaining lay-out and superb sea-keeping capabilities – and she is powered by the new Volvo Penta D8-IPS800 system with twin D8 diesel engines and IPS15 pod-drives.

“Owners of the 4800 Sport Yacht will enjoy Riviera’s spirited performance as well as all the benefits of IPS, including joystick maneuverability and the innovative Glass Cockpit system that makes boating today with Riviera even easier,” said Mr McCafferty.

Riviera 575 SUV – Miami Premiere

The three-model SUV series combines the high-performance, blue-water cruising and luxury liveability attributes of the classic Riviera Flybridge, and the single-level, leisurely entertaining features of our luxurious Sport Yachts.

“The three-stateroom/two-bathroom 575 design – with full beam master stateroom – features a clever alfresco cockpit and mezzanine design, and an aft galley and spacious salon that make her ideal for live-aboard blue-water cruising, entertaining and all types of water sports,” said Mr McCafferty.

“The 575 SUV features a state-of-the-art forward elevated helm and is available with your choice of pod or shaft-drives – with the proven Volvo Penta D11-IPS950 system with twin D11 diesel engines and IPS20 pod-drives or the D13-IPS1200 system with twin D13 diesel engines and IPS30 pod-drives, or with a shaft-drive package of either the Volvo D13 Series or CAT C12.9 systems.”

The Riviera Advantage

Riviera is recognized as being at the forefront of the luxury motor yacht market, not only in terms of superior build quality but through fully embracing innovative and easy-to-use systems and technology onboard its internationally acclaimed designs.

 “A 5-year warranty on all Volvo Penta systems is now standard with every new Riviera, spanning Volvo Penta helm stations, steering and propellers as well as the major componentry of their high performance drivelines and fuel-efficient engines,” said Mr McCafferty.

“Available worldwide, this extended warranty complements the Riviera 5-year structural warranty and provides even greater peace of mind for our valued Riviera boating family members that ensures they enjoy ‘the time of their lives’,” he said.
