Riviera, Australia’s most awarded luxury motor yacht builder, will proudly display its flagship Sport Yacht, the 6000 model, at the Dubai International Boat Show beginning that opens tomorrow February 27 and runs until March 3.
The 2018 show is located at the Dubai Canal in Jumeirah, a temporary site during construction of the new Dubai Harbour, designed to be the Middle East’s largest marina.
Visitors to the Dubai show this year will have world-famous landmarks such as the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall and Dubai Frame just minutes away from the venue.
Dedicated Riviera and Belize dealer Francesco Pitea of SF Yachts said he and his team are proud to display this sophisticated Sport Yacht to the middle-eastern motor yachting community.
“This Riviera model epitomises the combined commitment of Riviera and SF Yachts to fulfilling the boating dreams of discerning motor yacht enthusiasts in our region,” said Mr Pitea.
“The alfresco layouts, merging the welcoming and superbly equipped cockpit spaces with luxurious and comfortable interiors, are the hallmark of Riviera.
“The accomplished designers, engineers and master craftsmen at Riviera’s headquarters in Australia are continually refining the designs and easy-to-use technology and equipment aboard these motor yachts that make the joy of Riviera ownership a sheer pleasure,” he said.

The sleek and sophisticated Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht has been described as a high-performance blue-water vessel akin to a six-star luxury resort.
She is supremely comfortable with clever alfresco lifestyle features and ultramodern technology as well as palatial appointments.
Riviera International Sales Director Chris McCafferty said: “She includes an impressive array of features including an hydraulic boarding platform and large open cockpit with a gourmet barbecue unit, and a colossal-sized sun pad on her forward deck.
“The cockpit connects seamlessly with the spacious saloon through large sliding glass door and lift- up awning window. Inside, past the fully equipped U-shape aft galley, the saloon is flooded with natural light through wrap-around windows, electric sunroofs and fixed skylights.
“Her sports-styled helm features the touch-screen Glass Cockpit navigation and systems monitoring as well as touch-screen CZone digital switching and a joystick for superior handling and low-speed manoeuvring.”
Mr McCafferty concluded: “The 6000 Sport Yacht features up to four luxurious staterooms, including a full beam master amidships. Options include three staterooms plus an accommodation deck lounge or the impressive Presidential design that provides an enlarged floor plan for the full-beam master suite, two further staterooms as well as three bathrooms and a convenient aft utility room or crew cabin.”
Base power is the Volvo Penta D11-IPS950 propulsion system with twin turbo diesel engines and IPS20 pod-drives (533kW/725hp each) which offer impressive fuel efficiency, low noise levels, long cruising range and high top-end speed. With Riviera all Volvo Penta systems and drives are covered by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty, complementing the Riviera five-year limited structural warranty.
