Riviera 75 Boat Review
Riviera will launch the 75 Enclosed Flybridge at the Riviera Festival and Boat Show hosted at the boatbuilder’s Coomera manufacturing facility, May 24-27 2012.
The 75 features a larger cockpit and flybridge than Riviera’s existing 70 Enclosed Flybridge making it the largest production flybridge boat built in Australia.
The expansive cockpit measuring 5.53m x 3.3m leads to an undercover alfresco dining area. A glass and stainless steel door opens out to a u-shape galley to port and a straight-line internal staircase on the starboard side, which leads onto the enclosed flybridge.
The galley is equipped with a four-burner electric induction cooktop, two refrigerator units with two drawers each and a two-drawer freezer unit. There is also a dishwasher under the bench. To the starboard side, the wet bar area features lift-up glass storage, an ice-maker and another two drawer-style refrigeration units.
As you step up from the galley, you’ll find an L-shaped lounge suitable for eight guests facing the dining area, with a large free-standing table for eight. Forward of the dining area on the starboard side is a utility room with a separate washing machine and dryer and a multi-zone temperature-controlled wine cooler.
Accommodation includes four cabins with the master stateroom aft beneath the saloon. The stateroom runs the full beam of the boat amidships, with fixed portholes on either side. A king-size double bed is flanked by bedside tables. His and hers walk-in wardrobes are on both sides of the stateroom. The en suite features quartz tile flooring and a marble-quartz benchtop with porcelain bowl. A separate shower stall has a frameless glass door and a teak seat.
The forward accommodation on this first 75 includes a triple cabin to port, a triple cabin to starboard and a forward cabin featuring a queen-size island berth. However, the accommodation layout can be changed to suit.
Seating in the fully enclosed flybridge includes a central helm chair with two companion chairs (one either side) and a large L-shaped lounge to port with table facing a wetbar and entertainment unit. A large external viewing platform aft has seating for up to three people with a rear helm on the starboard side.
The 75 is air-conditioned throughout, with separate units for the flybridge, saloon, dining area, galley, all cabins and bathrooms.
Punters can inspect the 75 at the Riviera Festival and
Boat Show held from May 24 to 27 at Riviera’s state-of-the-art Coomera facility at 50 Waterway Drive, Coomera.
The 75 will join a display fleet of 20 luxury Riviera models collectively valued at $15M, including the new 53 Enclosed Flybridge, new 43 Open Flybridge, and Riviera's popular 5800 and 5000 Sport Yacht models.
The event, which coincides with the nearby Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, will offer interactive displays, factory tours, and a premium brokerage showcase featuring a wide range of pre-loved Riviera models.
