Riviera to Premiere sophisticated 4800 Sport Yacht at Chicago Boat Show

Australia's world-renowned motor yacht builder, Riviera, will proudly Premiere its sophisticated 4800 Sport Yacht in conjunction with dedicated Riviera and Belize Dealer Bay Marine at the Chicago Boat Show from January 10 to 14.

Bay Marine's Mark Felhofer said he and his team are excited to display this elegant model to the Great Lakes motor yachting community at McCormick Place South.

“The Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht epitomise the combined commitment of Riviera and Bay Marine to fulfilling the lifestyle dreams of discerning motor yacht enthusiasts in Chicago and the entire Great Lakes," said Mr Felhofer.

"The alfresco layouts, merging the welcoming and superbly equipped cockpit spaces with luxurious and comfortable interiors, are the hallmark of Sport Yachts. The 4800 model is a supreme example.

"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.

Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht – Chicago Boat Show Premiere

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 Felhofer.

“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 ensuite. 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.
