Riviera launches new Platinum Edition Sport Yachts at Sanctuary Cove

05 Jun 2019

Converging at the 2019 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show for a memorable mix of luxury yachting, socialising and boating education, Riviera Yachts, Australia’s premium luxury motor yacht builder premiered its new Platinum Edition Sport Yacht range – the 4800 Series II5400 and 6000 – along with the 54 Enclosed Flybridge, all of which received glowing praise from all who stepped aboard.

“It was very rewarding for our team to receive such positive reactions to our premiere models,” Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst said.

“Our 600-strong team continue to set higher standards and the feedback we’ve received across the four days of the boat show absolutely confirms that we have created something special.


New Riviera Platinum Edition Sport Yachts 

“With the new Edition Sport Yachts, you will see the distinctive addition of hardtops and targa arches presented in Riviera Platinum, along with a silver/grey upholstered sunbed on the foredeck. Electronic arrays, air vents and boot tops finished in a stylish 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 Riviera 4800 Series II to the option of two or three staterooms with two bathrooms onboard the Riviera 5400 up to three or four staterooms with three bathrooms and impressive layout options on the flagship Riviera 6000.

The eighth Riviera Festival of Boating was centred around the Riviera Motor Yacht Club, in Sanctuary Cove and offered a unique program of more than 30 boating seminars and hands-on workshops including Ask the Experts panels, Fishing Clinic and Offshore Seamanship.

This year’s hugely popular ‘Living the Riviera Dream’ seminar, was presented by David and Lis Paton who recently completed a significant circumnavigation and live-aboard adventure of Tasmania on their Riviera 53 Enclosed Flybridge, Pascua Luma.

The Riviera Motor Yacht Club also lured foodies when renowned television cook Sally Jenyns showed an enthusiastic audience how to cook a simple but delicious banquet aboard their yachts in her Galley Wise – Planning and Provisioning seminar.

“Our education program provides them with the chance to expand their boating knowledge and skills,” Mr Longhurst said.

“From anchoring and towing to weather forecasting and maintenance, our experienced team love sharing their knowledge with our owners.”

“Being part of the Riviera Family is a way of life for our 5400 yacht owners around the world and our team are very proud to have welcomed multiple new owners into the family over the course of the 2019 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show,” concluded Rodney Longhurst.
