Riviera to premiere the new 545 SUV and three Platinum Edition Sport Yachts at Sydney International Boat Show

By July 2, 2019 No Comments

Riviera will premiere four world-class models at the 2019 Sydney International Boat Show [1-5 August] as part of an exceptional nine-boat display that heralds a new level of refinement for Australia’s premium luxury motor yacht builder.

In the spotlight will be the new Riviera 545 SUV, boasting a full-beam master suite that offers unparalleled space and comfort. A grand tourer in every shimmering sense, this yacht shares the brilliant bluewater hull, expansive open cockpit and accommodation plan of Riviera’s newly launched 54 Enclosed Flybridge in concert with a free-flowing, easy-living saloon that’s tailor-made for entertaining.

The iconic ‘Platinum’ badge is now the symbol of distinction for three of Riviera’s most stylish models – the 6000, 5400 and 4800 Series II Sport Yachts. Platinum accents, fashionable interior updates and premium state-of-the-art features have captivated boating enthusiasts since their May premiere.

The deluxe hue is synonymous with luxury as it melds stylishly with the gleaming white gelcoat externally, along with the gloss walnut cabinetry and lighter countertops and headliner internally, creating classic and timeless appeal. The refinements even extend to the addition of new Recaro sports helm seats with diamond-quilted Alcantara inserts, akin to the world’s finest automobiles.

Joining these four premiere models at SIBS will be the remarkable 68 Sports Motor Yacht, 445 SUV, 43 Open Flybridge and 395 SUV and 39 Sports Motor Yacht. Representing the pinnacle of motor yachts manufactured in this country, all have commanded world-wide attention.

“Boating enthusiasts come from all over Australia, and many parts of the world, to witness our Sydney International Boat Show display and I believe they will be more impressed than ever this year,” Riviera Australia owner Rodney Longhurst says.

“The display will comprehensively showcase the constant optimisation of our model development, while also revealing our latest thinking and style.

“I would say the current range of yachts is the most refined that Riviera has ever created.  Our 600-strong team strives every day to ensure that Riviera yachts are built as exceptionally as they look.”

Best of all worlds – Riviera 545 SUV – Premiere

The 545 SUV replaces Riviera’s 525 SUV as a versatile yacht combining indoor/outdoor lifestyle features at a size that’s just right for cruising couples and young families, with Volvo Penta IPS 800 (625hp) and 950 (725hp) power options providing class-leading performance and ease of handling.

Pride of place goes to the full-beam master suite boasting an exceptional amount of space and storage, king-sized walk-around bed, L-shaped lounge to starboard, bureau and large hanging wardrobe to port, plus a generous en-suite bathroom equipped with designer fittings. Being amidships, the suite enjoys optimum stability and quietness, while topside windows to both port and starboard afford unimpeded water views.

Guests or family members are pampered with an elegantly appointed forward VIP stateroom, a starboard twin cabin, plus a day head with glass shower recess and stylish vanity. Storage abounds, and there is excellent headroom, light and ventilation throughout.

The cockpit is well configured for fishing and watersports, along with outdoor entertaining. It offers fixed transom seating as well as a three-seater mezzanine lounge to port. A double barbecue unit resides to starboard on the mezzanine, adjacent to the saloon entry for easy access back-and-forth to the aft-placed galley and cocktail cabinet.

U-shaped and highly functional, the aft galley is a gourmet chef’s delight with a solid surface bench top, electric cooktop, convection microwave oven and an optional drawer dishwasher within handy reach of the stainless-steel sink.

The 545 SUV’s rear bulkhead opens to the cockpit via an awning window comprising tinted, tempered glass framed in polished stainless steel. Sliding windows on both sides of the saloon and two large overhead sunroofs ensure fresh air and natural light invigorate the space.

There’s an equally stunning view for the driver and passenger through the large windscreen. Riviera’s designers have placed the wheel almost on the centreline for superb vision, separating the helm’s twin pedestal seats to allow easy access. 

Guests can also immerse themselves in the driving experience from the L-shaped lounge to port, just aft of the helm. It has a hi-lo dining table, while a three-seater lounge resides to starboard. The latter has a removable centre seat that becomes an ottoman for additional dining seating. A fold-out table then extends the dinner party if needed.

If its dining manners are impeccable, Rodney Longhurst says “wait until you experience the 545 SUV’s driving manners!”

“The 545 SUV was designed to deliver a soft, dry and efficient ride, bolstered by the legendary structural strength that Riviera is renowned for,” he adds. “The hull performs wonderfully in the enclosed flybridge format, so the SUV’s low centre of gravity makes it exceptionally well settled and safe in a seaway.

“The underwater hull form is perfectly matched to the twin D11 turbo diesel engines and IPS drives, with excellent fuel economy and impressively quiet operation, not to mention easy joystick docking.”

Engine technicians need never enter the yacht’s interior as engineroom access is provided through a strut-assisted hatch just aft of the saloon door. Nor do water-toys have to be stored below, as there are multiple underfloor storage options.

Style that is distinctly Riviera – Platinum Edition Sport Yacht Collection

Hardtops, targa arches and wet-bars presented in Riviera Platinum, along with a silver/grey upholstered sunbed on the foredeck, are the first hint of a dramatic aesthetic statement for the Sport Yacht Platinum Edition.

Next are the air vents and boot tops finished in stylish black, while finest-quality Sunbrella fabrics, high-gloss walnut timber cabinetry and trim, pure wool carpet in the staterooms, Corian flooring for the bathrooms, and plush soft-touch lounge furnishings complete a story of unbridled luxury and class.

4800 Sport Yacht Series II Platinum Edition – Sydney Premiere

The 4800 SY has been designated a Series II as the model enhancements are extensive. From stem to stern, it is an architectural masterpiece sporting two magnificent staterooms and two designer bathrooms. The 4800 attracts sports-express owners moving up, to former flybridge devotees coming down to a single level.

In the IPS800 and IPS15 pod combination the 4800 has found its perfect performance partner. These are state-of-the-art technologies in every respect, so quiet and sophisticated in their power delivery.

Upon arrival at an anchorage, owners will immediately appreciate the new extended swim platform with flowing curves to the outboard quarters. A 2.7-metre RIB can soon be launched from the internal garage. Further upgrades include 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.

More rewards are in store down below as the optional premier stateroom, forward, gains additional cabin floor space, along with a larger starboard hanging locker, three-drawer chest and 32-inch television.

The family-friendly midships-cabin has three single beds, two of which run athwartships and can transform into a double by virtue of an electric sliding track. There’s a blanket box, storage under the stairwell and generous hanging space.

5400 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition – Sydney Premiere

The 5400 Sport Yacht raised the bar when launched as an exciting single-level entertainer with intelligent and progressive design.

The yacht is virtually a turn-key luxury sports package with everything needed for on-water relaxation, starting with aft-facing seating under the rear awning that is the al fresco lunch spot and socialising hub. The 5400 gains the Platinum-finish wet-bar to port in the cockpit, including benchtop, refrigerator, icemaker, sink and two-plate electric barbecue.

The galley features new waterfall-style Corian benchtops with squared edges, complemented by twin bar stools to form a casual servery. Back-to-back lounges fill the area to port, leading forward to the central helm station.

The skipper will feel more like a pilot in this commanding space, with its centreline helm seat and a dashboard rendered in Platinum grey Alcantara. Performance is equally impressive as Volvo IPS 950 (725hp) diesels spirit the 5400 with impressive acceleration and top speed. 

Owners receive a majestic full-beam stateroom, abounding with exceptional headroom and airiness surrounding a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom. The VIP stateroom fills the forepeak, while there is a choice between a lower lounge or twin bunk cabin.

6000 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition– Sydney Premiere

The 6000 Sport Yacht, meanwhile, is a genuine three-cabin vessel, albeit with a choice of full-beam master stateroom configurations that range from vast (Classic) to palatial (Presidential). The accommodation atrium is filled with light to accentuate the tall and crisp architectural look and feel.

In the saloon, a starboard-side lounge refinement sees a centre seat base slide out to become an ottoman and includes a small fold-out timber table. Seating is enhanced as the aft end of the lounge extends to be flush to the inboard end of the galley.

New-style Recaro helm seats with Alcantara inserts and feature stitching are a glamorous feature of the helm station. Again, this a true sport yacht for a driver who relishes thoroughbred performance.

Twin 10.8-litre IPS 950s (725hp) reside in the 6000’s engine room and simply purr when the vessel is underway. Silky smooth performance is experienced when cruising or striding confidently to top speed.

Elsewhere, the list of Platinum refinements includes a cockpit joystick mounted to starboard coaming in addition to the standard portside arrangement. There are dual fuel filters and water separator for engines, along with an oil change system to engines and generator.

“We were humbled by the instant and positive reaction to the Platinum Edition at Sanctuary Cove and we are extremely excited to be presenting them to Sydney boating enthusiasts,” Rodney Longhurst concludes. “Our yachts are designed and built to deliver the safest, most comfortable and luxurious boating experience possible, both at anchor and at sea.

“I’m sure visitors will appreciate that our new models are not just better … they’re the best in show.”

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 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

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

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.
