Premieres for the 39 and 72 Sports Motor Yachts and 395 SUV among an 11-model showcase at Sydney International Boat Show

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – Riviera, will present the World Premiere of the latest model in its outstanding Sports Motor Yacht collection, the 39, at the opening of the Sydney International Boat Show on Thursday, 2 August.

The new 39 Sports Motor Yacht will headline Riviera’s magnificent on-water showcase of 11 exquisite motor yachts at Cockle Bay in the heart of Sydney.

The showcase includes the Sydney Premiere of the sporty and adventurous Riviera 395 SUV and the long-range and luxurious 72 Sports Motor Yacht.

The showcase will also include the sophisticated 6000, 5400 and 4800 Sport Yachts, the blue-water 52 Enclosed and 43 Open Flybridge models, the sporty and adventurous 575 and 445 SUVs and the timeless classic Belize 54 Daybridge.

Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst said: “Our team at Riviera is proud to unveil our outstanding new 39 Sports Motor Yacht to boating aficionados in Sydney. She provides a compelling new entree to the Riviera family.

“Our world-class design team and engineers have crafted a sophisticated new hull and deck design, with raised bulwarks on the side decks and multiple entertainment spaces that are emblematic of Riviera Sports Motor Yachts.

“The Riviera 39 Sports Motor Yacht is a brilliant example of Riviera’s evolution and constant refinement across our five collections.”


Stepping aboard from a fixed swim platform through a starboard transom door, the cockpit is an open space for entertaining and water sports. A barbecue unit is set across the transom, facing forward and accessed from the swim platform.

In the cockpit, a teak table and a lounge set under the awning window to port offer alfresco dining. Optional fold-out seating is recessed into the coaming on both sides.

Access to the engine room is via a large hydraulic lifting hatch while a smaller hatch, immediately aft of the saloon door, is available for day-to-day maintenance.

Sunlovers will enjoy the foredeck with its optional large sunlounge, accessed via the side decks featuring raised bulwarks.

A stair-ladder on the starboard side of the cockpit connects this space with the extended flybridge where a twin helm-and-companion seat forward faces a helm with comprehensive engine controls and navigation displays behind a raked windscreen. Guests relax on an L-shape lounge aft of the helm while a superbly crafted rail envelopes the rear section of the flybridge, providing a plush backrest to the wide lounge, privacy screening and an anchor-point for navigational equipment.

Sun protection to the flybridge is provided by a folding bimini top.

The finest American white oak timber panelling and cabinetry, skillfully paired with elegant fabrics, enhance the contemporary styling throughout the 39 Sports Motor Yacht.

In the saloon, a fully-equipped aft galley is on the starboard side with a dining area opposite, offering 360-degree views. The standard lower helm is forward to port and a lounge opposite provides sweeping views forward.

The lower deck provides sleeping accommodation for five adults in two staterooms. The luxurious master stateroom forward includes a queen-size walk-around double bed, a wardrobe, overhead lockers and shelving. Hull windows and a deck hatch flood the stateroom with natural light and fresh sea air.

The bathroom immediately aft includes a vanity, toilet and separate shower stall.

The midship stateroom includes twin beds athwartships to starboard and a single bed set along the port side. Natural light and fresh air is provided to this stateroom by generous hull windows, fitted on both sides with opening portholes.

Power for the new Riviera 39 Sports Motor Yacht comes from twin Volvo Penta D6-IPS600 system with twin diesel engines (2 x 320kW/435hp) and IPS pod-drives and joystick control.

Industry-leading Volvo Penta warranty

The systems, drives 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.


The sporty and adventurous Riviera 395 SUV displays a contemporary elegance, from her new hull design with feature hull windows to European-inspired fabrics and cabinetry throughout.

Her open cockpit is perfectly designed for relaxing and entertaining or for a raft of water sports. A lounge and table in the forward port quarter invite alfresco dining.

This new model offers two generous staterooms and a large bathroom on the accommodation deck, a spacious saloon with fully-equipped aft galley to starboard and a dinette opposite, a forward helm to port and a guest viewing lounge in the starboard forward quarter.

Power for the 395 SUV comes from twin Volvo Penta D6 IPS 500 turbo diesel engines providing 272kw (370hp) of power with IPS pod drive units with joystick control.


The Riviera 72 Sports Motor Yacht delivers whisper-quiet performance and super-smooth running at speed combined with the security that she exceeds CE Category B certification.

This new Sports Motor Yacht offers wide side decks with raised bulwarks, a foredeck entertainment centre, fully enclosed flybridge with internal stairs and a covered mezzanine dining area. A door on the port side of the mezzanine leads to a staircase down to the day head and shower. Adjacent to the day head is a utility room or optional crew cabin with direct access to the engine room.

The large aft U-shaped galley is designed and built to cater for the chef’s every requirement while a plushly carpeted saloon features a large lounge to port and, to starboard, a leather dinette that seats up to eight people.

Accommodation options include Grand Presidential or Classic layouts with three or four staterooms and three bathrooms.

Power for the Riviera 72 Sports Motor Yacht is provided by twin MAN V12 turbo diesel 1800 or 1900 engines, providing 1,324kW (1,800hp) or 1,397kW (1,900hp).
