Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht heads to California

Australia’s world-renowned luxury motor yacht builder, Riviera, will proudly premiere the sophisticated 4800 Sport Yacht in conjunction with dedicated Riviera and Belize representative Emerald Pacific Yachts at the Newport Boat Show in Newport Beach, California, over four days beginning on April 19.

Emerald Pacific Yachts San Diego representative Will McIntyre said he and his team are excited to showcase the very latest example of Riviera’s Sport Yacht evolution to US west coast motor yachting enthusiasts at the Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach.

“Riviera is renowned for innovative design,” said Mr McIntyre. “The Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht, the latest model in this collection, cleverly merges a welcoming and superbly equipped cockpit space with a luxurious and comfortable interior to create an alfresco layout that is the hallmark of Riviera motor yachts.

“This motor yacht truly epitomises the combined commitment of Riviera and Emerald Pacific Yachts to fulfilling the ultimate boating experience of America’s discerning motor yacht owners.”

Riviera’s Sport Yacht design philosophy is embedded deeply in the DNA of the 4800: sleek styling, luxurious single-level living and entertaining layout and superb sea-keeping capabilities.

Riviera’s International Sales Director, Chris McCafferty, said: “From the cockpit, with its generous seating on two lounges, full wet bar and double barbecue to an entertainment zone on the forward deck with its large sun pad with folding back rest, this is a sport yacht designed for entertaining.

“Natural light fills the expansive interior living space with its aft galley and spacious lounge and dinette opposite. An electric salon sunroof slides open for additional light and fresh air, or an amazing view of the stars at night.”

The command centre of the 4800 Sport Yacht, located forward on the port side, features the latest Volvo Penta and Garmin Glass Cockpit navigation and systems monitoring, with two 12-inch multi-function screens and joystick steering control.

The 4800’s accommodation layout gives owners an open atrium lower lounge. The luxurious master stateroom forward features large hull windows for natural lighting, a queen-sized walk-around bed and a contemporary styled en suite. The guest cabin amidships features three adult-sized single beds. There’s the option of the two port side beds to slide together to create a double.  A second bathroom and day head is on the port side immediately forward of this cabin.

Base power for the 4800 is the Volvo Penta D8-IPS800 propulsion system with twin D8 engines and IPS20 pod-drives (441kW/600hp each). With Riviera, all Volvo Penta systems, drives and electronics are covered by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty to complement Riviera’s five-year structural limited warranty.
