Riviera’s 6000, 5400, and 4800 Sport Yacht models have all been elevated to Platinum Edition status.
Earlier this year, Riviera – Australia’s premium luxury motor yacht builder – unveiled its stunningly gorgeous Platinum Edition Sport Yachts. The range includes the newly upgraded 6000, 5400, and 4800 Sport Yacht models. Each yacht is a shining example of world-class style, sophistication, and elegance.
News of the Platinum Edition models was made in May 2019 when the owner of Riviera, Rodney Longhurst, along with Riviera’s International Sales Director, Chris McCafferty, and Dealer Relationship Manager, Peter Welch, all waterskied behind a 6000 Sport Yacht bearing the new, distinct Platinum Edition colours – silver grey, black, and white, in Sydney Australia.
The 6000, 5400, and 4800 Sport Yachts, which were already breathtakingly luxurious, are now even more so with the Platinum Edition upgrades that include a new silver grey, black and white colour scheme, more creative uses of floor and storage space, and more state-of-the-art finishing touches and upholstery.
Riviera Platinum Edition Sport Yachts – What’s New?
So much has changed with the debut of the Platinum Edition Sport Yachts from Riviera. As the company’s owner explains in a recent press release: “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.”
Additional Platinum Edition upgrades include high-gloss walnut timber cabinetry and trim, pure wool carpet in the staterooms, more lounges upholstered in soft-touch fabrics, Recaro sports helm seats with Alcantara inserts and contrasting diamond hand-stitching, Sunbrella fabric headliners and wall linings, and new Corian-finished bathroom flooring.
In addition to the above mentioned upgrades, each Riviera Sport yacht model received its own set of upgrades.
Let’s take a closer look at each model’s upgrades:
Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition
Perhaps the sport yacht model with the most upgrades is the Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht – with so many upgrades the model has now been renamed to the ‘Series II’ Platinum Edition. The Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht is perfect for cruising couples and young families with its two beautiful staterooms, two designer bathrooms, and hull length of 45 feet. In addition to the features mentioned above, upgrades made to the platinum edition of the 4800 Sport Yacht include:
