Riviera 4600 Platinum unveiled

Riviera has celebrated the launch of its latest model, the 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition, with fitting fanfare and festivities.

27 April 2022


In a proudly Australian premiere, 50 Riviera team members have welcomed the 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition in a unique reveal at the company’s Gold Coast facility; an enormous multi-panel Riviera emblem was rotated to reveal the Australian flag in celebration of the new model.

The Riviera design team, in collaboration with 4D Designs, has created a yacht with exceptional interior volume, exterior style and bluewater performance.

The new model includes a raft of Platinum Edition features and luxury appointments, including premium fabrics, high-gloss walnut timber cabinetry, in-vogue lounges and plush carpet underfoot in all staterooms.

The hardtop and targa arch are presented in Riviera Platinum along with electronic arrays, air vents and boot tops rendered in a statement black finish.

She provides magnificent accommodation, with three staterooms including a full-beam master amidships that offers head-height comfort. Large hull windows bathe the space in natural light while opening portholes offer cross-ventilation.


Stepping aboard

The generous hydraulic swim platform includes optional dedicated slides for a tender up to three metres long that can lock into one of three positions; when underway, for access to the garage or to launch the tender.

The garage under the cockpit has an electric door and is designed for water sports equipment, including a kayak or paddle board up to 2.7 metres long. A second access point to the garage from the cockpit lounge offers easy storage for fenders and mooring lines.

The starboard side steps lead to a new style entertainer’s cockpit with a wraparound lounge that covers the transom and the entire port side of the cockpit. An ice-box and storage are under the lounge.

A folding timber table with drink holders can be utilised for dining or as a coffee table. A barbecue, drawer fridge, ice-maker and a sink are on the starboard side.

Tinted windows on provide weather protection and privacy and the hardtop overhang includes two electric sunroofs.

The foredeck features triple sun pads with adjustable headrests, storage lockers on either side and a deck hatch forward.


Light-filled saloon

A central sliding glass door opens to join the cockpit and saloon space, offering easy connection with the galley. Wide opening side windows and a curved windscreen further enhance the 360-degree views for guests.

The U-shaped galley aft on the port side features a dual element electric cooktop or combination microwave oven that includes a grill. The generous solid surface benchtop includes a stainless-steel sink with mixer tap.

Opposite, there’s additional benchtop space with a 150-litre refrigerator and 50-litre freezer as well as a liquor cabinet beneath. Overhead cupboards are on either side.

Forward on the starboard side, a large timber dining table is surrounded by a luxurious U-shaped lounge that seats up to six people.

The helm immediately forward of the galley includes twin leather and Alcantara sports seats facing a fully equipped dash.

A tilt-adjustable sports wheel, comprehensive engine controls including a joystick, twin Garmin Glass Cockpit navigation aids and C-zone control panel feature.

Guests can find further entertainment via an electric-lift 43-inch television built into the dash forward on the starboard side. The yacht is also air conditioned throughout, with separate control units in the saloon and staterooms.


Welcoming accommodation

The full-beam master stateroom amidships features a queen bed with a latex-topped inner spring mattress. The stateroom includes bedside tables, a chaise lounge along the port side, drawers and cupboards and an ensuite bathroom set forward.

The VIP guest stateroom forward includes an island double bed with overhead storage lockers above long hull windows. The bathroom aft can be utilised as an ensuite for the VIP stateroom or as a day head.

The pullman berth port cabin can be replaced by an optional lower deck lounge. A clothes washer and dryer are also an option.


Engineering excellence

Power aboard the 4600 Sport Yacht is provided by twin Volvo Penta D6-IPS650s with IPS10 pod drives delivering 353 kW each. The option of Volvo Penta D8-IPS800s (2 x 441 kW) with IPS 15 pod drives is available.

An 11 kW Kohler generator is included to provide AC power.

The Riviera 4600 Sport Yacht features a hand-laid GRP hull with independent compartments throughout, foam-filled where appropriate for added strength and noise dampening. A watertight collision bulkhead is forward.

The GRP fuel tank, carrying up to 2,100 litres is amidships and is coated in fire retardant resin. With a capacity for six adults, the designers have provided a generous 620-litre water tank and 151-litre holding tank.

Riviera offers an industry-leading two-year express and seven-year structural limited warranties on all new models. All Volvo Penta systems are covered by a five-year limited warranty.
