Perth Boat Show premieres for Riviera
Australia’s most-awarded luxury motor yacht builder Riviera will showcase two outstanding models for the first time in Western Australia when it hosts a magnificent 4-model display at the Perth International Boat Show from September 20-22.
The fine combination of innovation and contemporary elegance, the 39 Open Flybridge is Riviera’s new style of motor yacht under 40-feet and an excellent representation of the boat builder’s evolution and refinement.
Riviera will also showcase its widely celebrated 5400 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition that has attracted many owners and great expert acclaim in the past three months is a most luxurious and sporty single-level entertainer.
These premiere motor yachts will form part of an exceptional four-boat display on the Swan River, with Riviera to also present the 445 SUV.
Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst said the Perth International Boat Show is the perfect opportunity for boating enthusiasts to experience first hand why the luxury motor yacht builder has earned a global reputation for outstanding craftsmanship, Australian practicality and ultimate luxury.
“With its spectacular location on the Swan River, the Perth International Boat Show allows us to bring the joy and power of blue-water cruising to the heart of the city,” he said.
“West Australian boating enthusiasts have long enjoyed Riviera’s luxury design and craftsmanship and our 600-strong team whose exceptional attention to detail are creating the best Riviera motor yachts ever.
“From the latest boat-building techniques, using only the finest of materials to our embrace of new technology that makes boating with Riviera just so easy, our brilliant new design Sports Motor Yacht Collection, Platinum Edition Sport Yachts and growing SUV and Belize ranges continue a proud tradition that began almost 40 years ago with the launching of the first Riviera.”
“One of the highlights of a boat show is the way our owners come together to socialise and share stories about their respective Riviera journeys at our events. In Perth, the ‘Riviera family’ will once again unite to celebrate their love of boating,” he said.
“There are almost 5600 Riviera owners cruising the great lakes, rivers, seas and oceans of the world and events such as the Perth International Boat Show are a wonderful chance for all of us to remember why we are so fortunate to be a part of a very special global family.”
Created for family yachting adventures, the Riviera 39 Open is a unique combination of class-leading sports looks and performance with multiple entertaining spaces.
Featuring deep and wide treads, the stair-ladder on the starboard side of the cockpit connects this space with the innovative and extended flybridge that offers a panoramic view of the world whilst underway or transforms to the ultimate alfresco dining area or converts to a luxurious sunpad.
The flybridge twin helm-and-companion seat forward faces a sports wheel, comprehensive engine controls including a Volvo Penta IPS joystick and navigation displays behind a raked windscreen.
The finest timber panelling and cabinetry, skilfully paired with elegant Sunbrella fabrics, enhance the contemporary styling throughout the 39 Open.
In the saloon, a lower helm and companion seat are located on the port side, with a raised lounge opposite providing 360 degree views for guests and allowing the skipper, mate and crew to all interact while under way.
An aft galley is located on the starboard side, while the raised dining area, with L-shape seating, is to port side opposite the galley also offers sweeping views.
The lower deck provides sleeping accommodation in total comfort for five adults in two cabins; a forward master stateroom with queen-size walk-around double bed and an amidships cabin with three single berths and a generous sized bathroom.
Power for the Riviera 39 Open Flybridge comes from twin Volvo Penta D6 IPS 600 turbo diesel engines providing 324kW/440hp each with joystick control for easy close-quarters manoeuvring.
The 5400 Sport Yacht won expert acclaim when it was launched to an admiring market, with its intelligent and progressive design, sleek lines, raked entry and a superyacht-like radar arch infusing the vessel with a sporting pedigree.
The 5400 is now part of the exquisite new Platinum Edition with additional features that exhibit the world-class style from the highly credentialled Riviera design team.
The yacht is a luxury sports package with everything needed for on-water relaxation, starting with the superbly equipped cockpit with two large lounges that are protected under the rear awning that form the al fresco dinning and socialising hub. The 5400 features the Platinum-finish wet-bar to port in the cockpit, including 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 (533kW/725hp) diesels spirit the 5400 with impressive acceleration and top speed.
On the accommodation deck, 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 Pullman berth cabin.
Also on display in Perth
Combining the offshore pedigree and open cockpit of the Riviera Flybridge Collection with the relaxed, flowing one-level living of Riviera Sports Yachts, the 445 SUV is a yacht for the boating enthusiast who values both adventure and entertaining. The saloon features an aft galley to port, with the helm forward on the same side, opposite there is a large lounge and dining area. The lower deck provides sleeping accommodation in total comfort for five adults in two cabins with two ensuite bathrooms.
Riviera provides the exclusive reassurance that all Volvo Penta powered motor yachts, the systems, drives and electronics are covered by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty to complement Riviera’s structural five-year limited warranty.
