Four Premieres for Riviera and Belize at the 2018 Ft Lauderdale International Boat Show


FT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA – Riviera will proudly present the much anticipated release of four new models at the opening of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in the United States at the end of October.

This impressive line-up will include the World Premiere of the flagship Belize 66 motor yacht and the Americas Premiere of the long-range and luxurious Riviera 72 Sports Motor Yacht. The 39 Sports Motor Yacht that provides a compelling entree to the Riviera family will also premiere along with the sporty and adventurous 395 SUV at the opening of the Fort Lauderdale show in Florida on October 31.

These spectacular four new models will be the centrepiece of a nine-model red-carpet showcase that also includes the sophisticated 6000, 5400 and 4800 Sport Yachts, a blue-water Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge model and the classic Belize 54 daybridge model.

The Belize 66 builds on the heritage, first unveiled in 2011, of a luxury motor yacht that evokes the styles of a bygone era of yachting, of gleaming hand-crafted interiors and, most importantly, of individuality.

Riviera CEO Wes Moxey said: “We have been able to include a wide range of options as standard in the Belize 66, beginning with the overall layout of a single-level lifestyle sedan or a daybridge with classic bimini top or hardtop.”

A swim platform is submersible to assist in launching and retrieving the tender from the garage and the large cockpit features a dinette and L-shape seating in the starboard fore quarter, a comprehensive barbecue unit and a second lounge. A massive forward sundeck offers a large sunken U-shape lounge and a central dinette table.

A large awning window links the outdoor space with the galley while a sliding glass door provides entry to the saloon. The large U-shape gourmet galley is aft and the dinette is forward to starboard with a free-standing lounge or armchair opposite.

A water-tight pantograph side door opposite the dinette provides immediate access to the port deck.

The lower helm area offers a range of options; a minimalist single-seat layout to starboard or a more expansive central location with companion seating.

The accommodation deck offers many layout options: three or four staterooms including a midships Master, and three bathrooms. A space aft of the master stateroom can be fitted out as full beam bathroom, a massive walk-in wardrobe, a utility room, workshop or a crew cabin.

Power for the new Belize 66 comes from the proven Volvo Penta 1350 IPS3 pod drive system, with Volvo Penta’s Station Hold and joystick control for fingertip manoeuvrability.

The systems, drives, engines and electronics on all Volvo Penta-powered Riviera motor yachts are covered by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty to complement Riviera’s structural five-year limited warranty.
