At this year’s Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, owner of Riviera Rodney Longhurst was on hand to present three brilliant examples of the new Platinum Edition Sport Yachts, including the 4800, 5400 and 6000 Sport Yachts.
Prior to the the Show, Riviera Owner Rodney Longhurst, Riviera’s International Sales Director Chris McCafferty and Dealer Relationship Manager Peter Welch completed a spectacular waterskiing run behind a new 6000 Sport Yacht bearing the Platinum Edition livery.
Accompanying Longhurst were Riviera’s International Sales Director Chris McCafferty and Dealer Relationship Manager Peter Welch in a spectacular run behind a new 6000 Sport Yacht bearing the Platinum Edition livery.
As a passionate water-sportsman, Longhurst is involved in the design and development process, working closely with the design team to ensure they meet Riviera’s standards, so it was only fitting that he played a special role in flying the Australian flag on behalf of the 600-plus team at Riviera.
“It is a wonderful celebration of the inspired and time-proven design of our Sport Yacht range around the world. Over the past 14 years, Riviera has launched over 560 Sport Yachts ” Longhurst explained.
“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.
“Their beauty also runs deep with a raft of premium, state-of-the-art features such as Sunbrella fabrics, high-gloss walnut timber cabinetry and trim, pure wool carpet underfoot in the staterooms and in-vogue lounges upholstered in soft-touch fabrics.”
Complementing the lounges are new Recaro sports helm seats with Alcantara inserts and contrasting diamond hand-stitching. Elsewhere are Sunbrella fabric headliners and wall linings, while bathroom flooring has a new luxe Corian finish.
Accommodation options for the Platinum Edition range from two staterooms with two bathrooms aboard the 4800 Series II to the option of two or three staterooms with two bathrooms onboard the 5400 up to three or four staterooms with three bathrooms and impressive layout options on the flagship 6000.
