Riviera to Premiere sophisticated 4800 Sport Yacht in four-model display at Caribbean International Boat Show

Australia's most awarded luxury motor yacht builder, Riviera, will proudly premiere its sophisticated 4800 Sport Yacht in a display of four gleaming new motor yachts at the seventh Caribbean International Boat Show in Puerto Rico over three days beginning on March 9.

The show is held at Marina Puerto del Ray in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, the home marina of dedicated Riviera and Belize dealer Wally Castro Marine.

Dealer principal Wally Castro said he and his team are proud to display the 4800 Sport Yacht to discerning motor yacht enthusiasts in the Caribbean.

"We will also display a flagship 6000 Sport Yacht as well as the 43 and 45 Open Flybridge models at the show," said Mr Castro.

“These four Riviera models epitomise the combined commitment of Riviera and Wally Castro Marine to fulfilling the boating dreams of motor yacht enthusiasts throughout our region.

"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 the Riviera yard 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 - Caribbean International 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.

Riviera's International Sales Director, Chris McCafferty, said: “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 sport yacht designed for entertaining.

“Natural light fills the expansive interior living space with its aft galley and spacious dinette opposite. An electric salon 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 as well as touch-screen CZone digital switching and a joystick for superior handling and low-speed maneuvering.

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.

 Base power for the 4800 Sport Yacht 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 are covered by an industry-leading limited five-year warranty to complement Riviera's limited five-year structural warranty.


Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht – on display at the Caribbean International Boat Show

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 colossal-sized 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 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. 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 are covered by an industry-leading limited five-year warranty to complement Riviera's limited five-year structural warranty.


Riviera 43 Open Flybridge - on display at the Caribbean International Boat Show

The Riviera 43 Open Flybridge incorporates great function and style within a supremely seaworthy hull.

A versatile motor yacht, she offers an extremely fishable cockpit, relaxing lifestyle design and spritely yet economical performance through Volvo Penta IPS propulsion. 

Her alfresco environment includes a wide glass awning window and pillarless glass door, creating a seamless transition between the expansive cockpit and contemporary leather and varnished timber interior.

The main salon is both elegant and practical, with an ergonomic aft galley that is fully equipped and places the chef at the heart of social activities on board. The starboard U-shaped leather lounge surrounds a hi-lo dining table that folds and lowers to become a coffee table or extra bed.

On the accommodation deck the master stateroom forward features a queen-sized island bed and ensuite bathroom. The full-beam midships guest stateroom features three adult-sized beds, two of which can slide together to create a double. This stateroom has private access to the second bathroom as an ensuite or can be separated to allow this bathroom to serve as the day head.

The flybridge, accessed from the cockpit via a deep-tread ladder, offers 360-degree vision with minimal interruption thanks to the structural hardtop canopy. The 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.

Popular power in this versatile motor yacht is via twin Volvo Penta IPS2-600 pod drives with D6 turbo diesel engines that generate up to 435hp/320kW each.

With Riviera, all Volvo Penta systems are covered by an industry-leading limited five-year warranty to complement Riviera's limited five-year structural warranty.


Riviera 45 Open Flybridge - on display at the Caribbean International Boat Show

Incorporating great function and style within a supremely comfortable, sea-kindly hull, the Riviera 45 Open Flybridge Series II features a free-flowing alfresco environment from her expansive cockpit through to her elegant salon.

A well-equipped, sizeable - 79.7 square-foot - cockpit is a generous space for entertaining, with a comfortable lounge in the forward port quarter and is also the perfect platform for all manner of water sports.

The rear bulkhead awning window and glass door open out into the cockpit to create one extended living space between the cockpit and salon.

The salon offers an L-shape lounge to port with a dinette on the starboard side opposite the forward galley. Befitting a long-range cruiser, the generous U-shaped gourmet galley is fully equipped including generous storage.

On the accommodation deck, the 45 Open’s master stateroom is positioned forward featuring an island queen bed and en suite bathroom. A starboard guest cabin includes Pullman-style bunks and a portside cabin offers twin beds with an infill to convert to a double bed. The two guest cabins share a bathroom that also doubles as the day head.

A moulded staircase with teak treads and polished stainless steel grabrails leads skipper and guests from the cockpit to the flybridge, offering 360-degree views. The state-of-the-art aft helm includes the port side helm chair and centrally located companion seat behind a sport steering wheel, twin-lever electronic engine control units and a choice of formats to suit the electronic displays.

Power in this versatile motor yacht is via Caterpillar C8.7 offering 478kW/650hp with shafts and propeller tunnels. Optionally, owners can select Cummins AQSM11 526kW/715hp power.
