Australia’s most-awarded builder of luxury motor yachts Riviera has just announced an inspired new addition to its growing Sport Yacht collection: the elegant Riviera 4800. Lee Marine, with offices at Ao Po Marina, Phuket is the exclusive Thailand Distributor for Riviera. General Manager, Martin Holmes says, “we are thrilled to see so many top features in this new Riviera. She really is a great cruising boat for South East Asia.”
The 4800 Sport Yacht has two spacious staterooms and two bathrooms. The door to the tender garage, which has enough room for a 2.7-metre tender, is electric and above is a true entertainer’s covered barbecue centre, with stainless steel splash-back and convenient LED lighting.On both sides of the 4800 Sport Yacht, there are steps up to the wide walk-around side decks, which feature raised bulwarks and full-length bow rails for safe access to the forward deck.
Riviera’s 4800 Sport Yacht will make her World Premiere at Sydney International Boat Show in July.
A large awning window opens out from the spacious saloon to the cockpit, creating a seamlessly flow from boarding platform through to the front windscreen. The modern aft galley – set to port to ensure the free flow of traffic through the saloon – features premium appliances, including dual stainless steel refrigeration drawers and a drawer freezer. The hand-crafted cabinetry offers excellent storage and features positive locking hardware.
When the celebration begins, a cocktail cabinet to starboard features a lift-up lid, revealing bottle storage and drawers for glasses. Forward, an elevated, leather-upholstered, C-shaped lounge provides excellent visibility forward and through the wide side windows and seats up to six adults around a large, fixed dinette table. Natural light fills the expansive interior living space, with the side windows able to slide open for cross ventilation when desired. An electric saloon sunroof also slides open for additional light and fresh air, or an amazing view of the stars at night.
Tthe most discerning Riviera skipper will appreciate the high degree of boating knowledge and consideration drawn up to create the ergonomic design of the 4800’s luxury sports-inspired helm. The command centre of the 4800 Sport Yacht features the latest Volvo Penta/Garmin Glass Cockpit navigation and systems monitoring features, with two 12-inch multi-function display screens set into the sunken dash.
Stepping down to the 4800’s accommodation deck atrium, the full headroom achieved by clever design is immediately evident. The 4800’s flexible accommodation layout gives owners a large atrium lower lounge that can comfortably seat up to five adults.
The master stateroom features additional storage cabinets with positive locking hardware outboard, with a cedar-lined hanging locker and automatic lighting to starboard and a cedar-lined storage locker with shelves to port. This stateroom has its own private en-suite with contemporary styling and an overhead hatch for fresh air, which also screens for privacy when required.
