Australia’s world-class motor yacht builder, Riviera, will Premiere its 4800 Sport Yacht at the upcoming United States Powerboat Show from 12 October.
In conjunction with dedicated Riviera and Belize dealer Grande Yachts International, Riviera will also display the sophisticated 6000 and 5400 Sport Yachts and the timeless classic Belize 54 Daybridge at City Dock in Annapolis, Maryland, from October 12 to 15.
Riviera’s International Sales Director Chris McCafferty said the company and its New England dealer are excited to bring these popular models to the iconic cruising waterways.
“Both our Riviera Sport Yachts and the Belize motor yacht epitomise our commitment to fulfilling the boating dreams of our global family of discerning owners,” he said.
“The alfresco designs, merging the indoor and outdoor spaces as one, with luxurious interiors and industry-leading technology, are the hallmark of Riviera Sport Yachts. The Premiere 4800 as well as the 6000 and 5400 models are supreme examples.”
He said the elegant Belize 54 Daybridge integrates Australian practicality and superior offshore performance.
“Our team of accomplished designers, engineers and master craftsmen is continually refining the easy-to-use technology and equipment aboard our motor yachts that make the joy of Riviera and Belize ownership a sheer pleasure,” said Mr McCafferty.
Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht – United States Powerboat Show Premiere – October 12-15
Riviera’s Sport Yacht hallmarks are embedded deeply in the DNA of the 4800: sleek styling, luxurious single-level living and entertaining layout and superb sea-keeping capabilities.
“From the cockpit, with its generous seating on two lounges, full wet bar and double barbecue to an entertainment zone on the forward deck with its large sun pad with folding back rest, this is a motor yacht designed for entertaining,” said Mr McCafferty.
“Natural light fills the interior living space with its aft galley and dinette opposite. An electric saloon sunroof slides open for additional light and fresh air or an amazing view of the stars at night.”
The command centre of the 4800 Sport Yacht features the latest Volvo Penta and Garmin Glass Cockpit navigation and systems monitoring, with two 12-inch multi-function screens.
The 4800’s accommodation layout gives owners a large atrium lower lounge that can comfortably seat up to five adults. The luxurious master stateroom forward features large hull windows for natural lighting, a queen-sized walk-around bed and a contemporary styled en suite. The guest cabin amidships features three adult-sized single beds. There’s the option of the two port side beds sliding together to create a double. A second bathroom is on the port side immediately forward of this cabin.
Storage in all cabins includes cedar-lined hanging lockers, drawers and under-bed storage.
Base power for the 4800 is the Volvo Penta D8-IPS700 propulsion system with twin D8 engines and IPS20 pod-drives (405kW/550hp each). The D8-IPS800 system featuring twin D8 engines and IPS20 pod-drives (441kW/600hp each) is optional. With Riviera, all Volvo Penta systems and drives are covered by an industry-leading five-year warranty.
Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht – also on display
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.
“She includes an impressive array of features including an hydraulic boarding platform and large open cockpit with a gourmet barbecue unit, and a huge sun pad on her forward deck,” said Mr McCafferty.
The cockpit connects seamlessly with the spacious salon through a large sliding glass door and awning window. Inside, past the fully equipped U-shape aft galley, the salon offers a large U-shape lounge dinette immediately forward of the galley with a three-seat lounge along the starboard side.
This space is flooded with natural light through wrap-around windows, electric sunroofs and fixed skylights.
Her sports-styled helm features 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 maneuvering.
“The 6000 Sport Yacht features up to four luxurious staterooms, including a full beam master amidships,” said Mr McCafferty. “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 warranty.
Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht – also on display
The 5400 Sport Yacht has impressed owners and boat show visitors around the world since her launch early last year.
“The three-stateroom, two-bathroom 5400 model is an evolution of the luxury single-level living design for which Riviera’s Sport Yacht series is highly prized and acclaimed,” said Mr McCafferty.
“The forward deck features a cushioned and upholstered sun lounge and, in the cockpit, a sunroof slides open at the touch of a button so you can also enjoy the sunshine out of the wind. A large tender garage is accessed from the deep boarding platform.
“This is a true entertainer’s cockpit, flowing through to the aft gourmet galley and spacious salon through a large sliding glass door and awning window that opens out and places the chef right in the center of the social environment.”
Opposite the galley is an L-shape lounge dinette including a timber table on top of a stainless steel pedestal.
The sports-inspired centerline helm console provides excellent visibility and ergonomics so that all critical navigation electronics, comprehensive engine instrumentation and vessel controls are within easy reach. An L-shape lounge in the port forward quarter beside the helm offers guests a panoramic view.
“The accommodation deck of the 5400 Sport Yacht features a luxurious midships full-beam master stateroom with ensuite, a spacious VIP guest stateroom forward and the option for either a port side guest stateroom or an accommodation atrium lounge.”
Base power for the 5400 is the Volvo Penta D11-IPS800 propulsion system with twin D11 turbo diesel engines and IPS20 pod-drives (460kW/626hp each). Owners have the option of the D11-IPS950 system featuring twin D11 engines and IPS20 pod-drives (533kW/725hp each). With Riviera, all Volvo Penta systems and drives are covered by an industry-leading five-year warranty.

Sophisticated styling, an opulent interior, clever storage concepts and proven blue-water hull distinguish the Belize 54 Daybridge.
“The 54 Daybridge is designed to cater for the growing global passion for high-end luxury motor yachts that blend traditional design with the latest in marine technology,” said Mr McCafferty.
“With an alfresco cockpit design and a large tender garage, a welcoming salon with aft galley, three staterooms and two bathrooms including a full-beam master, the Belize is a motor yacht for those who love understated elegance.”
Each Belize 54 Daybridge offers innovative Glass Bridge navigation and monitoring features as well as three joysticks – at the lower helm, at the daybridge helm and in the cockpit portside.
