Riviera 4400 Sport Yacht
To be launched at the 2007 Sydney International
Boat Show in early August, Riviera says its new 4400 Sport Yacht takes
luxury boating to a new level with its lightweight, yet robust hull construction
and Volvo Penta Inboard Performance System (IPS) propulsion, which includes
Volvo Penta’s joystick docking system.
The 4400 Sport Yacht design continues the indoor-outdoor
theme and sense of light and space introduced on the first award-winning
Riviera 3600 Sport Yacht and carried on to the 4700SY. Exterior lines have
been further refined to create even more visual appeal, says Riviera. Bonded
glass windows each side of the boat are a striking feature that, together
with an opening porthole each side, allow natural light and ventilation
into the aft cabin of the boat.
According to Riviera, the two cabin/two bathroom
cruiser exudes style and is packed with all the modern conveniences, making
it the ultimate in lifestyle-orientated vessels.
Designed with the aid of the latest CAD software
systems, Riviera says the 4400 Sport Yacht contains a host of new innovations
and technologies for both Riviera and the marine industry at large.
The hull has been constructed utilising infusion
moulding technology rather than the traditional open moulded lay-up of
fibreglass and resin. And the twin Volvo IPS 500 diesel engines, rated
at 370hp each, can be optioned-up to IPS 600s, rated at 435hp. Stylish
new engine room air inlet vents are moulded as scoops outside the side
The cockpit is both spacious and functional,
with a wide lounge across the transom. A large table with drink holders
is mounted on gas-assisted high/low pedestals.
A wet bar, including solid surface top with
sink and mixer tap, is built into the port forward quarter of the cockpit.
The wet bar features a stainless steel refrigerator as standard. An icemaker
can be added to complement the fridge in lieu of the standard locker and
A large storage locker, accessed from the swim
platform, is built into the rear of the transom for fenders and owner’s
gear. An optional hydraulic swim platform lifter can be fitted for launching
and retrieving a tender.
Joinery throughout the vessel is the highest
grade American Cherry timber, finished in multiple coats of high-gloss
polyurethane varnish applied by Riviera’s robotic varnish system.
Air conditioning is standard to the saloon
and galley areas, with outlets to the windscreen to help prevent fogging.
The Master stateroom?is?equipped with a queen?walk-around
island berth, complete with inner spring mattress. There is storage under
the berth in the form of drawers, while the entire bed is hinged and supported
by two gas struts to reveal a large storage space beneath.
