Riviera has once again set a new standard for blending luxury and practicality with the release of its stunning new Platinum Edition Sport Yachts.
A celebration of the inspired and time-proven design of the Sport Yacht range, the Platinum Edition encompasses the 4800 Series II, 5400 and 6000 Sport Yachts with each a shining example of world-class style, sophistication and elegance.
The three models each feature platinum accents, contemporary interior updates and premium state-of-the-art features, while the deluxe hue melds stylishly with the gleaming white gelcoat externally and the gloss walnut cabinetry and lighter countertops and headliner internally.

The refinements even extend to the addition of new Recaro sports helm seats with diamond-quilted Alcantara inserts, akin to the world’s finest automobiles.
Riviera chairman Rodney Longhurst said the premium luxury boat builder’s highly credentialed design team had excelled in ensuring the Platinum Edition exceeded their exacting standards.
“Riviera has launched more than 560 Sport Yachts across the past 14 years and these new arrivals bearing the Platinum Edition livery are our most luxurious yet,” he said.
“With the Platinum Edition Sport Yachts, you will see the unmistakable addition of hardtops and targa arches presented in Riviera Platinum Silver, along with a silver/grey upholstered sunbed on the foredeck. Electronic arrays, air vents and boot tops are rendered in a stealth-like black finish.
“Their beauty also runs deep with a raft of premium, features such as Sunbrella fabrics, high-gloss walnut timber cabinetry and trim, pure wool carpet underfoot in the staterooms and in-vogue lounges upholstered in soft-touch fabrics.”
The Platinum Edition Sport Yachts also feature Sunbrella fabric headliners and wall linings, while bathroom flooring has a new luxe Corian finish.
Accommodation options range from two staterooms with two bathrooms aboard the 4800 Series II and two or three staterooms with two bathrooms onboard the 5400 up to three or four staterooms with three bathrooms and impressive layout options on the flagship 6000.
Mr Longhurst added: “Riviera is synonymous with ultra-luxury, superior design and supreme blue-water sea-keeping capabilities, and these new motor yachts, with their distinguished bloodline, will continue to advance our global standing.”
SPOTLIGHT ON … Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition
The Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht has been often said to be one of the prettiest Riviera yachts and its Platinum Edition refinement under the perfectionist eyes of Riviera’s highly-regarded design team takes this popular yacht to another level.
Twin 10.8-litre IPS 950s (725hp) from Volvo Penta are housed in the 6000’s cleanly laid-out engineroom, a place where form meets functionality, and they simply purr when the vessel is underway. Delivering a smooth and quiet ride when cruising, the 6000 accelerates briskly to a very sporty top speed.
The extended main deck hard top enhances the sleekness, while also integrating an electric sunroof. Sitting below, it’s cosy, cocooned and comfortable. Step inside the saloon and the galley is located to port, now featuring waterfall galley benchtops with stainless steel sinks and mixer tap.
Glass skylights richly illuminate the aft area of the saloon and a radar arch allows the sunroof to slide beneath. Forward is a sunroof that, with the addition of side-opening windows and aft awning window, creates a seamless indoor/outdoor world.
The starboard-side lounge now sees the centre seat base slide out to become an ottoman and includes a small fold-out timber table. The dining area lounge opposite is upholstered to give an opulent look and the seating in this area has been extended.
Moving below, you come to the atrium, a corridor filled with light to accentuate the crisp architectural look and feel. Accommodation layout options vary according to buyer preferences but include the option of a palatial “Presidential” master suite, lower lounge or fourth cabin.
Throughout the yacht the list of refinements is subtle yet significant, showing considerable thought for the boat’s overall user-friendliness.
For that final touch of Platinum, grey caulking is utilised in teak decks instead of the conventional black.
The highly efficient hull designs draw on both Volvo Penta and Riviera’s extensive experience with the Inboard Propulsion System (IPS) fitted to more than 700 Riviera motor yachts. From an engineering perspective, all Platinum Edition Sport Yachts have the ability to be gyro stabilised.
