Riviera launches new Platinum Edition Sport Yachts Three brilliant examples of pure elegance and exceptional luxury

By May 23, 2019 No Comments

The owner of Australia’s premium luxury motor yacht builder, Rodney Longhurst not only stands with exceptional pride behind his brand’s exquisitely-built motor yachts … he also skies behind them!

The occasion, early yesterday, was the unveiling of Riviera’s stunning new Platinum Edition Sport Yachts to awaiting cameras ahead of their premiere at Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show [May 23-26].

Accompanying Mr Longhurst were Riviera’s International Sales Director Chris McCafferty and Dealer Relationship Manager Peter Welch in a spectacular run behind a new 6000 Sport Yacht bearing the Platinum Edition livery.

As a passionate water-sportsman, Mr Longhurst immerses himself into the design and development process working closely with the highly-credentialed design team to ensure they meet Riviera’s exacting standards, so it was only fitting that he played a special role in flying the Australian flag on behalf of the 600-plus team at Riviera.

Included in the new Platinum Edition range are the 4800, 5400 and 6000 Sport Yachts, each a shining example of world-class style, sophistication and elegance.

“It is a wonderful celebration of the inspired and time-proven design of our Sport Yacht range around the world. Over the past 14 years, Riviera has launched over 560 Sport Yachts ” Mr Longhurst explained.

“With the Platinum Edition Sport Yachts, you will see the unmistakable addition of hardtops and targa arches presented in Riviera Platinum Silver, along with a silver/grey upholstered sunbed on the foredeck. Electronic arrays, air vents and boot tops are rendered in a stealth-like black finish.

“Their beauty also runs deep with a raft of premium, state-of-the-art features such as Sunbrella fabrics, high-gloss walnut timber cabinetry and trim, pure wool carpet underfoot in the staterooms and in-vogue lounges upholstered in soft-touch fabrics.”

Complementing the lounges are new Recaro sports helm seats with Alcantara inserts and contrasting diamond hand-stitching. Elsewhere are Sunbrella fabric headliners and wall linings, while bathroom flooring has a new luxe Corian finish.

Accommodation options for the Platinum Edition range from two staterooms with two bathrooms aboard the 4800 Series II to the option of two or three staterooms with two bathrooms onboard the 5400 up to three or four staterooms with three bathrooms and impressive layout options on the flagship 6000.

Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht Series II – Platinum Edition

Embodying the essence of the Platinum Edition is the 4800 Sport Yacht. Indeed, so significant were the model refinements that Riviera has designated it a Series II.

Improving on an already very popular model, however, was no easy task. The original 4800 spent 12-months in design and development to optimise the aesthetics and space utilisation. The 4800 emerged from this process as a masterpiece in every sense, as intellectual as it is functional.

The Volvo Penta Inboard Propulsion System offers twin IPS800 (600hp) powerplants and IPS15 pods proved a perfect power partner and thus retained their place in the Platinum Edition. Quiet and sophisticated in their power delivery, they provide more than ample ‘sport’ when leaving port.

First of the new features is an extended swim platform with flowing curves to the outboard ends. It is the gateway to a generous garage that accommodates a 2.7-metre RIB with the help of guide rails and Muir winch.

Next on the features list is a cockpit wet bar including benchtop, refrigerator, icemaker, sink with folding tap and double electric BBQ, serviced by an extraction fan and fold-down lid.

Twin electric opening sunroofs (individually operated) fill the cockpit with light and fresh air. Slide back the stainless steel-framed glass door; open out the awning window and the cockpit flows into the saloon as one unified space. Step inside and you’re then welcomed by the walnut’s warmth and drawn in by circumambient views.

A saloon cocktail cabinet with bottle storage drawer and drawers for glass storage is another excellent addition to the vessel’s entertainment attributes. The galley is equipped for anything from a weekend to a week on the water, with the Platinum Edition featuring new solid-surface bench tops.

Further rewards are in store in the accommodation deck as floor space has been increased in the forward mater stateroom, along with a larger starboard hanging locker, three-drawer chest and 32-inch TV.

For a perfect night’s sleep, a king-size walk-around berth with innerspring mattress and storage under berth, including drawers and gas struts for easy access. The bed base is luxuriously finished in leather and fine cabinetry. A superbly appointed private bathroom completes the master suite. While hull windows either side of the bed bring in natural light and accent the outside views.

A warm and inviting second stateroom features twin-single beds to port that slide together to create a double and a further single bed to starboard. Continuous glass hull windows to both port and starboard feature opening port holes. This is a perfect stateroom for family or guests. A second bathroom forward of the guest stateroom also serves as the day head.

The Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht is ideal for cruising couples and young families in being easily managed yet exceptionally spacious – making it perfect for anything from Sunday brunch to a quiet week away.

Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition

When launched to an admiring market, the 5400 Sport Yacht won immediate acclaim as an exciting single-level entertainer with intelligent and progressive design wedded to keel-to-wheel integration of its Volvo Penta Inboard Propulsion System.

Sleek lines, raked entry and a superyacht-like radar arch infuse the vessel with a sporting pedigree, attesting to a level of driving pleasure and refinement befitting its moniker.

Standard power for the Platinum Edition is a pair of Volvo Penta IPS 950 (725hp) diesels that deliver silky mid-range acceleration and an impressive top speed.

This yacht is a turn-key luxury sports package with everything needed for on-water relaxation, starting with aft facing seating under the awning that is the al fresco dining and socialising hub.

The new edition 5400 offers a new Riviera Platinum Silver wet bar including benchtop, refrigerator, icemaker, sink and two-plate electric barbecue.

Accommodation comprises either a three-cabin and two-bathroom layout or an optional two-cabin layout with lower lounge area. Owners enjoy a full-beam master stateroom, with exceptional headroom and airiness surrounding a king-size bed. Hull windows and opening portlights add to the sense of connectivity with the outdoor elements.

Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition

“There’s an exuberance about this yacht, a sparkle and a presence that reflects her star quality. The 6000 is a world-class performer with a global vision and purpose,” commented Mr. Longhurst.

The Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht has been often said to be one of the prettiest Riviera yachts, and its Platinum Edition refinement under the perfectionist eyes of Mr Longhurst and the highly-regarded Riviera design team takes this popular yacht to another level.

Twin 10.8-litre IPS 950s (725hp) from Volvo Penta are housed in the 6000’s cleanly laid-out engineroom, a place where artistic form meets functionality, and they simply purr when the vessel is underway. Delivering a smooth and quiet ride when cruising, the 6000 accelerates briskly to a very sporty top speed.

The main deck hard top is extended to enhance the sleekness, while also integrating an electric sunroof. Sitting below, it’s cosy, cocooned and comfortable. Step inside the saloon, and the galley is located to port, now featuring waterfall galley benchtops with stainless steel sinks and mixer tap.

Glass skylights richly illuminate the aft area of the saloon, and a radar arch allows the sunroof to slide beneath. Forward is a sunroof that, with the addition of side-opening windows and aft awning window, creates a seamless indoor/outdoor world.

The starboard-side lounge now sees a centre seat base slide out to become an ottoman and includes a small fold-out timber table. The dining area lounge base is upholstered to give an opulent look and the seating in this area has been extended.

New-style Pompanette helm seats with Alcantara inserts and feature stitching are a glamorous feature of the helm station.

Moving below, you come to the atrium, a corridor filled with light to accentuate the crisp architectural look and feel. Accommodation layout options vary according to buyer preferences but include the option of a palatial “Presidential” master suite.

Throughout the yacht the list of refinements is subtle yet significant, showing considerable thought for the vessel’s overall user-friendliness.

For that final touch of Platinum, grey caulking is utilised in teak decks instead of the conventional black.

The highly efficient hull designs draw on both Volvo Penta and Riviera’s extensive experience with the Inboard Propulsion System (IPS) fitted to more than 700 Riviera vessels. From an engineering perspective, all Platinum Edition Sport Yachts have the ability to be gyro stabilised.

Rodney Longhurst concluded: “We are very proud to premiere these three extraordinary Sports Yachts at Sanctuary Cove. Our brand is synonymous with ultra-luxury, superior design, and supreme blue-water sea-keeping capabilities, and these new motor yachts, with their distinguished bloodline, will continue to advance our global standing.”

From the point of view of your dealership I was astounded by the professionalism shown and wonder as to what level of service could be expected when purchasing a million dollar boat if the service we received when purchasing a second hand vessel was so fabulous. This is our fourth Riviera and along with three other cruisers we have dealt with a number of brokers from the good to the very stupid and I can attest that Riviera Sales, Rushcutters Bay are so far in front of the rest, it is remarkable. The attention to detail both small and large was incredible, the boat being presented clean and ready to go, the beautiful engraved plaque in our name and the ‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude are attributes rarely found in today’s market place.

Gregory I Freeman and Mary Freeman, Queensland

...an amazing experience. Thanks so much for helping us make this happen - I am so proud to be finally part of the Riv community.

Scott Sach

Boat arrived down safely, last week whilst I was in KL. Extremely happy with the whole package, Kate’s colour inside is really stunning, and something that I normally would not have picked. Pete has been everything that you have said of him, an extremely helpful and professional young man, with a wonderful work ethic and an appreciation of his client’s needs.

David Crawford and Kate Crawford

Eva and I would like to convey our sincere appreciation to all at Riviera Sales Rushcutters Bay, who very professionally and caringly assisted us through the total sales process with our purchase of ‘Plan-B’.
As you are aware we are being assisted by Riviera Sales in rectifying a few minor problems which recently became evident and unlike some other sales companies that adopt an attitude of “we’ve got your money see you later” Riviera after sales service and caring attitude is very impressive to the point where we are not only encouraged to come back to Riviera Sales but also to inform our many friends of our good experience.

Phillip and Eva Southcombe, New South Wales

Firstly, I have been so seriously impressed with all of my dealings with your organisation. All matters have been handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. Nothing is a problem and a client, like me, gets the very clear feeling that you can always rely on solid ‘after sales service’. You have it down right and it is very refreshing.

Ken J Stevens, New South Wales

Clare and I would also like to take this opportunity to extend our thanks for all your excellent help and service. We have had more than our fair share of dealings with boat brokers so we are more than qualified to judge you are an exception to the rule!
Everyone in your organization was helpful. It was most unfortunate that the first boat fell through but it turned out for the best and we appreciated [the salesman's] integrity and obvious concern in difficult circumstances. His attention to detail was exemplary and our boat was handed over to us in immaculate condition and he spent a very long time arranging everything and explaining it all to us personally.

Clare and Ian Fraser, Queensland

We cannot speak highly enough of the whole Riviera experience, from the day we walked in the door to actually receiving the boat. It’s rare in this day and age to go through a whole experience without finding something to fault, however our experience with you achieved this.

John and Chrisn Hickey, Victoria

I take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for the help provided by Mr Peter Devery of Riviera Sales. Not only did Pete help arrange the transportation of the boat from Hamilton Island to Woolloomooloo, but he also helped me personally in learning the instrumentation etc. on the new boat. This was unexpected and exceeded my expectations of your business. Further all of this special service occurred at a hectic time in Pete’s life with the birth of his first child.

Craig J Morris, New South Wales

First of all I would like to thank you for the respect you showed me and your professionalism. You went out of your way arranging numerous details for me regarding the Riviera 38; picking me up from my hotel, arranging the boat lift and sea trial and even organizing a day at the Sydney Boat Show. [Thank you for] recommending Sam Wood a skipper, to bring my boat from Sydney NSW to Buddina Qld. The boat arrived in pristine condition.

I would highly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a Riviera to contact you direct.

Once again thank you.

Adam Ashby

I felt I was treated with the utmost courtesy and professionalism at all stages and it was and still is a pleasure to deal with you and your team.

Michael Dane, New South Wales

We really appreciate the ‘extra mile’ that all at Riviera have taken to get us a replacement boat so quickly- particularly at this busy Christmas period.
As previous Riviera owners we appreciated your build quality and continuous design improvements and wish to make special mention of the team at Rushcutters Bay who are very professional sales consultants-very helpful and knowledgeable without being ‘pushy’; it is a pleasure doing business with them.
