RIVIERA ANNOUNCES NEW 64 SPORTS MOTOR YACHT


Barry 2019-06-07

Riviera broke the mould with the release of its 68 and 72 Sports Motor Yacht models in 2017 and ’18 respectively, and it is set to do so again with another graceful addition to this growing Collection. 

The just announced all-new Riviera 64 Sports Motor Yacht will boast equally high levels of sophistication and innovation as its sisterships. It gives boating enthusiasts, particularly bluewater cruising couples, the long-term liveability and luxury they desire in a 64-foot model.

“The sports motor yacht philosophy has been well embraced the world over, with over 20 yachts purchased by owners in Europe, the Americas, New Zealand and Australia over the past 18 months,” Riviera Australia owner Rodney Longhurst says. “The 64 is sure to be welcomed, with a number of orders already received ahead of its official announcement. 

“Our highly experienced international design team has risen to the challenge of optimising the onboard space, ensuring the yacht offers beauty, amenity and functionality.

“The research and refinement process extended to building a full-scale mock-up in our facility and consulting with some of our most experienced owners. This was an important consideration as Sports Motor Yacht owners tend to cruise for longer distances and durations.”

Ultimately, the designers achieved the choice of three or four staterooms, covered mezzanine dining and aft gourmet galley, internal staircase, a pantograph door leading to generous walk-around sidedecks, and a foredeck that cradles a 3.6-metre tender before transforming into a spacious entertainment zone.

Versatility and practicality shine through in the Riviera 64 Sport Motor Yachts cockpit, with no less than four lockers across the transom and coamings, along with vast underfloor storage that comprises a large insulated fish bin flanked by twin lazarettes.

Two generous steps lead to the 64 Sport Motor Yachts mezzanine level and the external engine room hatch.

Ensuring privacy and sun protection, there are one-way-vision glass panels extending from the cabin superstructure that allow those onboard to enjoy the view but not be viewed themselves. The mezzanine can be enclosed with optional clears and serviced by air-conditioning ducts for maximum comfort during extremes of weather.

Luxurious saloon

The outdoor dinette is the perfect entrée for the C-shaped galley, which is immediately to starboard inside the 64’s saloon. A pantograph door gives clever and convenient access to the port side deck and foredeck.

Plush seating for four or five guests is provided on the port side of the saloon, the lounge also storing three director’s chairs to supplement the seating at the starboard-side dinette or al fresco dining area.

Descending to the accommodation deck, the VIP stateroom in the forepeak enjoys views from large topside windows and benefits from overhead lockers, along with two full-height hanging lockers.

The day head, residing to port, is of similar dimensions and offers separate en-suite access to the guest cabin. It’s equipped with two single berths that, as an option, can slide together at the touch of a button to form another queen-sized berth. Directly opposite is a fourth stateroom sporting double bunks – alternatively this area can feature an atrium lounge.

A wide companionway leads aft to the Riviera 64 Sports Motor Yachts full-beam master stateroom, which is bathed in light from large topside windows and features a central king-sized bed.

The separate master en-suite is akin to an apartment bathroom, boasting high-quality flooring, a double vanity, heated towel rail, spacious shower and designer fittings. Headroom is excellent at 6ft 5in (1.95 metres).

An aft bulkhead door in this room provides an internal route to the gleaming white engine room, housing a 22.5kW genset, 6500-litre fuel tanks and twin MAN V8 1300hp (970 kW) diesels as standard.

In true Riviera sports motor yacht style, the 64’s fully enclosed bridge will pamper guests like a first-class lounge. A rear sliding door and awning window brings the outdoors inside. There’s an additional dinette and wetbar on the rear deck plus the option of siderail-mounted joysticks.

In summary, the 64 is a stately and stylish addition to Riviera’s thoroughbred stable of Sports Motor Yachts, a vessel that offers a world of on-water opportunities – from sports fishing and diving to paddle boarding and kayaking, or simply pure relaxation when cruising the coast. The 64 Sports Motor Yacht is set to premiere in 2020.
