A Fresh New Style, a Fabulous New Boating Experience
Every now and then a work of art or piece of design comes along that is more than an evolution of what came before – it is a quantum leap in thinking and execution. The Riviera Sport Yacht is such a leap.
The vision for this new style of boat was inspired by decades of experience in markets as diverse as Australia, Europe and the USA. Riviera realized that today there was a need for a boat that was both solid and dignified in the tradition of our Flybridge Convertibles, yet spirited and contemporary in the same vein as our Sport Cruisers.
The result might best be described as a serious motor yacht with a refreshingly light and sporty side.
Starting from a blank canvas gave us the opportunity to address the needs of today’s boat owner like never before. Drawing on contemporary architecture, automotive styling, fashion, leading furniture design and other sources we have created a boat of impeccable style and one that is utterly modern.
Everything about the Sport Yacht is designed to make life on the water easy, relaxed and fun.
To dream of such a boat is one thing, to create it is another. However, no one is better equipped to realize such a vision than Australia’s most awarded pleasure boat builder, Riviera. A company with over 29 years boat building experience and owners of the largest pleasure boat building facility in the Southern Hemisphere.
Harnessing the full weight of our design, technology and manufacturing resources to the Sport Yacht project has produced a boat that has even exceeded our expectations. And since the launch of this new range, the Riviera Sport Yacht Collection has received unprecedented praise
from the international boating community and been the recipient of multiple 'Boat of the Year Awards'.
If you are in search of a new boat that captures your heart and inspires your soul, your search is over.
One of the most striking features of the Sport Yacht is the huge rear window and door between the cockpit and salon. Not only is it extremely stylish with tinted glass set in a bold, highly polished stainless steel frame, it opens up to create the ultimate indoor-outdoor feeling. The two areas just flow into one to produce a unique al fresco experience.
The fact that the galley is on the same level as the cockpit and salon also means that the chef remains in the middle of the party. The galley is just a step away from the cockpit and for entertaining there is a second refrigerator here.
At every turn you will find Riviera ingenuity – such as the flat screen television in the salon that raises and lowers out of sight at the touch of a button, the way the stainless steel swim ladder folds away, and the discreetly placed drink holders on the foredeck sunpad. As for comfort, the large L-shaped lounge with its soft leather and deep cushions is probably more inviting than the couch in your living room.
Yes, easy living and an idyllic environment to share leisure time with your family and friends. But this is a boat of real substance too, one that boasts the most sophisticated design and construction methods including a hand-laid solid fibreglass hull with separate compartments throughout the hull and a watertight collision bulkhead forward.
The 3600SY is powered by the inspired Volvo Penta IPS pod drive system that is exceptionally smooth and quiet while unbelieveably responsive and fuel-efficient.
This may be a new style of motor yacht but the quality and superior technology tells you that it is every inch a Riviera.
Style or good taste may be hard to define but you instantly recognise it when you see it… and you will see it here in abundance. It’s in everything from the subtle color contrasts of the plush headliner material to the use of a light cherry timber with a satin finish. Even details such as the fabric concealing the salon speakers and the stylish air-conditioning vents have been carefully considered and beautifully executed.
