At the Newport Yachting Center in Newport, Rhode Island, from September 14 to 17, the company will premiere its sophisticated 6000 Sport Yacht as well as the timelessly classic Belize 54 Daybridge in conjunction with Riviera and Belize dealer Bosuns Marine.

The Norwalk show display in Norwalk Cove Marina, from September 21 to 24, will feature the Premiere of the new two-stateroom Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht and the 6000 Sport Yacht as well as the 5400 model in conjunction with Grande Yachts International.

International Sales Director Chris McCafferty said the company and its New England dealers are excited to bring these popular models to the iconic cruising waterways.

“Both the Riviera Sport Yacht collection and the Belize epitomise our commitment to fulfilling the lifestyle dreams of our global family of discerning motor yacht owners,” he said.

“The alfresco layouts, merging the wide cockpits spaces with luxurious and comfortable interiors, are the hallmark of Riviera Sport Yachts. The 4800, 5400 and 6000 models are supreme examples. It is particularly exciting to premiere the 6000 Sport Yacht at both shows and to bring the 4800 to the motor yachting enthusiasts at Norwalk, Connecticut, for the first time.”

He said the elegant Belize 54 Daybridge integrates Australian practicality and superior offshore performance with the latest in technological innovation.8

“Our team of talented designers, engineers and master craftsmen is continually refining the easy-to-use technology and equipment aboard our motor yachts that make the joy of Riviera and Belize ownership a sheer pleasure,” said Mr McCafferty.

Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht – Premiere

Riviera’s Sport Yacht hallmarks are embedded deeply in the DNA of the 4800: sleek styling, luxurious single-level living and entertaining layout and superb sea-keeping capabilities.

“From the cockpit, with its generous seating on two lounges, full wet bar and double barbecue to an entertainment zone on the forward deck with its large sun pad with folding back rest, this is a sport yacht designed for entertaining,” said Mr McCafferty

The 4800’s accommodation layout gives owners a large atrium lower lounge that can comfortably seat up to five adults. The luxurious master stateroom forward features large hull windows for natural lighting, a queen-sized walk-around bed and a contemporary styled en suite. The guest cabin amidships features three adult-sized single beds. There’s the option of the two port side beds sliding together to create a double.  A second bathroom is on the port side immediately forward of this cabin.

Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht

The 5400 Sport Yacht has impressed owners and boat show visitors around the world since her launch early last year.

“The three-stateroom, two-bathroom 5400 model is an evolution of the luxury single-level living design for which Riviera’s Sport Yacht series is highly prized and awarded,” said Mr McCafferty.

“The forward deck features a cushioned and 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. A large tender garage is accessed from the deep boarding platform,


This is a true entertainer’s cockpit, flowing through to the aft gourmet galley and spacious salon through a large sliding glass door and awning window that opens out and places the chef right in the center of the social environment.

The sports-inspired centerline 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, a spacious VIP guest stateroom forward and the option for either a port side guest stateroom or an accommodation atrium lounge.”
