PHUKET, THAILAND – A gleaming new Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht has arrived in Thailand in preparation for her Premiere at the inaugural Phuket Rendezvous boat show from January 4 to 7.
The team at our Thai Riviera and Belize Dealer Lee Marine ran the sophisticated new motor yacht in the blue waters off Phuket soon after she arrived and report that she is a superb example of Riviera’s Sport Yacht design.
Lee Marine General Manager Martin Holmes said the arrival of the gleaming new motor yacht, delivered direct from the Riviera yard in Queensland, was particularly exciting for Thai motor yachting aficionados.
“As you can see in our video, the 5400 Sport Yacht is ideally designed for the Thai waterways,” said Mr Holmes. “Alfresco layouts merge the welcoming and superbly equipped cockpit spaces with luxurious and comfortable interiors.”
Riviera and Lee Marine will proudly Premiere the 5400 Sport Yachts at the Phuket Rendezvous at the Royal Phuket Marina.
The Phuket Rendezvous replaces the annual PIMEX boat show in Thailand.
“The Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht epitomise the combined commitment of Riviera and Lee Marine to fulfilling the lifestyle dreams of discerning motor yacht enthusiasts in Thailand and throughout south-east Asia,” said Mr Holmes.
“The accomplished designers, engineers and master craftsmen at Riviera’s headquarters in Australia are continually refining the designs and easy-to-use technology and equipment aboard these motor yachts that make the joy of Riviera ownership a sheer pleasure,” he said.

“The forward deck features an upholstered sun lounge and, in the cockpit, a sunroof slides open at the touch of a button so you can also enjoy the sunshine out of the wind. This is a true entertainer’s cockpit that connects seamlessly through to the aft gourmet galley and spacious saloon through a large sliding glass door and awning window that opens out and places the chef right in the centre of the social environment.”
The sports-inspired centreline helm console provides excellent visibility and ergonomics so that all critical navigation electronics, comprehensive engine instrumentation and vessel controls are within easy reach. An L-shape lounge in the port forward quarter beside the helm offers guests a panoramic view.
“The accommodation deck of the 5400 Sport Yacht features a luxurious midships full-beam master stateroom with ensuite, the option for either a port side guest stateroom or an accommodation atrium lounge and a spacious VIP guest stateroom forward with ensuite/day head.
