Premium Australian luxury motor yacht builder Riviera will proudly present four premieres in a nine-model red carpet showcase at the Miami International Boat Show in February.
The on-water display at the Miami Marine Stadium on Virginia Key in Florida, from 14 to 18 February, will premiere the extraordinary new Belize 66 Sedan that had her World Premiere at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in October.
The Riviera Miami Premieres include the long-range and luxurious Riviera 72 Sports Motor Yacht, the 39 Sports Motor Yacht and the sporty and adventurous 395 SUV.
The display also includes Riviera’s stylish and sophisticated 4800, 5400 and 6000 Sport Yachts, the blue-water Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge model and the timeless classic Belize 54 Daybridge.
Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst said: “We are proud to premiere four extraordinary motor yachts in a range of highly advanced and luxurious models at the Miami International Boat Show. This distinctive range of designs caters to a wide range of motor yachting pursuits and cruising aspirations.”
He said the name Riviera was synonymous worldwide with ultra-luxury, superior design, and supreme blue-water sea-keeping capabilities.
Every model in the display features the very latest in marine technology, including Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit navigation and systems monitoring as well as touch-screen digital switching and joystick controls for superior handling and low-speed manoeuvring.
Each motor yacht features the outstanding manoeuvrability and power of Volvo Penta integrated propulsion system IPS pod drives. With Riviera, all Volvo Penta systems are covered by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty to complement the Riviera and Belize five-year limited structural warranty.
Miami International Boat Show Premiere Belize 66 – on display
The new Belize 66 Sedan builds on the heritage of a luxury motor yacht that celebrates the styles of a bygone era of yachting, of gleaming hand-crafted interiors and, most importantly, of individuality.
The Belize 66 Sedan on display at the Miami International Boat Show is a three-stateroom, three-bathroom model that takes the concept of a semi-custom motor yacht to a whole new level, delivering a wonderful sense of space, comfort and luxury and offers the highest level of customisation and bespoke elements.
Special features of this motor yacht include a super yacht scale full beam master stateroom and full beam master bathroom aft of the stateroom.
The garage under the cockpit has space for a Brig F330L tender. Wide and high bulwark side decks lead forward to a massive sundeck that offers a large sunken U-shape lounge and a central dinette table. The foredeck will certainly become a favourite onboard entertaining or relaxation zone.
A large awning window opens out to the large cockpit and connects its multiple lounges and barbecue centre, to the galley while a sliding glass door provides entry to the salon. When the window and door are both open, this creates one enormous entertaining area. The large U-shape gourmet galley is aft and the dinette is forward to starboard with a free-standing lounge or armchair opposite. The superbly designed and crafted helm faces a wrap-around windscreen. A watertight pantograph door opposite the dinette provides immediate access to the port deck and introduces more fresh air into the salon.
Power for the new Belize 66 comes from twin Volvo Penta 1350 IPS3 pod drive systems, each providing 746kW (1,000hp).
