Riviera, on the red carpet in Singapore

Riviera, on the red carpet in Singapore

Australia’s Riviera will proudly showcase its hallmark luxury, easy to use technology, blue-water sea-keeping capability and superior owner enjoyment at Singapore Yacht Show from 7-10 April 2016.

On display at ONE°15 Marina Club, Sentosa Cove will be the luxurious 75 Enclosed Flybridge, Seabreeze – the supremely seaworthy Riviera that famously cruised 4366 nautical miles from Sydney to Singapore under her own steam over 21 days in 2014.

The epic voyage included an 1850-nautical mile ocean passage direct to Singapore from Darwin without making landfall and without stopping for additional fuel.

Riviera chairman and owner Rodney Longhurst said the Singapore Yacht Show – now in its 6th year – is an important opportunity to share and celebrate the sheer pleasure of boating with Australia’s most-awarded builder of luxury motor yachts.

“It is with great pride that we will be staging our Singapore Yacht Show display in conjunction with Reel Torque Yachts, our Riviera and Belize specialist dealer servicing the Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam regions,” he said.

“Our display will also feature full details of all current models across our five distinctive luxury motor yacht collections; the Riviera Flybridge, Sport Yacht, SUV and new Sports Motor Yacht designs, as well as the timelessly classic Belize Motor Yacht line.”

Riviera 75 Enclosed Flybridge – on display
The 75 Enclosed symbolises the ethos of excellence underpinning the global affection for Riviera Flybridge yachts that are built both for serious fishing, serious cruising and for serious family fun.

“The 75 model has now evolved into our fleet flagship – the palatial 77 Enclosed Flybridge – which is a brilliant blend of luxury cruising and fishing capabilities with all the comforts of a world-class luxury resort,” said Mr Longhurst.

“This impressive model has sleek lines, a sweeping sheer and sports-inspired targa as well as striking safety glass feature panels that visually link her contemporary, recessed hull windows to provide a sophisticated and stylish hull finish.

“With the evolution of the 75 to the 77, there’s an additional two feet of length in her expansive 193.6 square-foot (17.99m2) cockpit, an elegant 49.5 square-foot (22.59m2) mezzanine and four staterooms including an unashamedly indulgent full-beam master suite, four bathrooms and an optional self-contained crew cabin.”

The state-of-the-art, fully enclosed flybridge of the 77 Enclosed features a forward helm while an external tournament station on the rear deck ensures clear cockpit observation when docking, or when the fishing action is underway.

An optional massive and lavish sun pad and casual dining/sitting area can be located on the foredeck, enhancing her luxury lifestyle and relaxation attributes even further.

With an overall length of 81’2” (24.74m), a beam of 20’9” (6.32m) and featuring a fuel capacity of 2496 US gallons (9450L), the 77 Enclosed Flybridge is powered by twin MAN V12 shaft-drive engines (2 x 1900hp/1397kW) which, under full load, achieve a cruising range of 556 nautical miles at 26.4 knots with 10 per cent fuel reserve.

New model Premieres from Riviera
At the Singapore Yacht Show, Reel Torque Yachts will also have full details of Riviera’s latest new model premieres, including the:
    •    The 5400 Sport Yacht – World Premiere at Yachts Miami Beach, February 2016
    •    The 575 SUV –World Premiere at the Riviera Festival of Boating, 19-22 May 2016
    •    The 57 Enclosed Flybridge – World Premiere in August 2015

“We invite those attending the Singapore Yacht Show to come and say ‘G’day’ to our friendly team of experienced marine professionals team at the Riviera display located on D Arm,” said Mr Longhurst.

Festival of Fun and Learning
Riviera is driven to enhance the fun and fulfillment of its growing global family of discerning luxury motor yacht owners, hence its unique program of educational, social and cruising in company events around the world.

The Riviera Festival of Boating from 19-22 May 2016 is a prime example.

“Our Festival involves four fantastic days of fun and learning at our 14-hectare, world-class facility at Coomera on Australia’s Gold Coast,” said Mr Longhurst.

“Now in its 5th year, this unique festival of fun and learning brings together all aspects of boating, with over 70 free educational seminars and practical workshops covering all areas of seamanship – from line-work and advanced systems operation all the way through to understanding the weather and traditional chart navigation techniques.

“You can also hear from owners who have undertaken extended cruises to learn and be inspired by what you can achieve with your Riviera.”

Of course, Festival is also an opportunity for luxury motor yacht owners, and aspiring owners from around the world to inspect Riviera’s latest models at a stunning $20 million red-carpet, undercover on-water showcase on the Riviera Marina.

“This year we will stage the World Premiere of the impressive new 575 SUV and the Australia Premiere of the stylish new 5400 Sport Yacht at the Festival,” said Mr Longhurst.

“We will be extending an invitation to everyone attending the Singapore Yacht Show to mark our Festival dates in their diaries and join us to discover how Riviera is we helping our valued owners achieve: ‘the ultimate boating experience’.
