Australian motor yacht builder Riviera will host the world premiere of its newest yacht as part of its showcase at the 2024 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (SCIBS).

The 2024 edition of the annual SCIBS show kicks off on 23 May in Queensland, and runs until 26 May.

The new yacht will be the centrepiece of the Riviera display at SCIBS. The yet-to-be-announced vessel is being revealed just weeks after the boatbuilder celebrated the launch of its 6,000th motor yacht.

The Riviera design team has developed the new yacht in collaboration with superyacht designer Luca Vallebona.

“We are delighted to again work with Luca on an outstanding new yacht that is certain to inspire our owners and visitors to our display,” says Riviera Australia owner Rodney Longhurst.

“Our grand showcase represents the very latest in world-class design and will be Riviera’s only boat show display in Australia in 2024.


“Riviera has just reached a historic milestone with the launching of our 6,000th motor yacht, and we are very proud to include this yacht, a 5400 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition, in our showcase.

“Visitors will be able to fully appreciate the quality, practicality and luxury among our showcase yachts that have earned Riviera international regard.

“They truly represent our legendary blue-water pedigree, immense luxury and smart technology that makes boating with Riviera easier and more pleasurable.”

The 78 Motor Yacht offers owners multiple dining, entertaining, and relaxing spaces for parties, family gatherings, or quieter moments.

The Riviera Sports Motor Yachts (SMYs) offer long-range cruising capabilities with sporting looks and performance, including the unique Riviera alfresco deck. These, plus the all-water sports cockpit, can be experienced aboard the 72, 64, 58, 50, and 46 SMY models on display.

The Riviera Sport Yacht Platinum Editions on display include the 6,000th Riviera, a 5400, and the 6000 and 4600 models. The range is known for single-level indoor-outdoor spaces with designer styling.

Sporty and adventurous, the Riviera SUVs blend proven blue-water hull pedigree and the sporting cockpit of the Riviera Sports Motor Yachts with the single-level living features that Sport Yacht owners enjoy. The showcase will include the 585, 505, and 465 models.

The Belize 54 Daybridge will also be on show at Sanctuary Cove, offering the pleasure of semi-custom motor yachts that are reminiscent of the classic Downeast style.

“Our showcase will provide a unique opportunity in one convenient location to experience Riviera today, the finest yachts we have ever designed and built,” says Longhurst.

“These motor yachts are world-class in every respect; so quiet and smooth, so technically superior, so luxurious and just so capable offshore.

“Our team of 950 craftspeople work in an ever-evolving and more technically advanced facility, continuing to refine the design and quality of our yachts.”

Festival of Boating at the Riviera SCIBS showcase

The 2024 display at Sanctuary Cove will also host the Riviera Festival of Boating across three days aboard multiple Riviera yachts and the floating Riviera owners’ lounge.

Riviera owners are invited to participate in a program of introductory and advanced boating education and training workshops.

These workshops include the popular ladies’ skippers, essential weather, navigation, offshore seamanship, radar, safe anchoring and mooring, preventative maintenance, safety, thermal imaging, and power management.

The festival calendar also includes several social events, including the Riviera owners’ ladies’ luncheon and a series of spectacular gala events.

Longhurst adds: “We look forward to welcoming guests aboard our premium collection of Riviera luxury motor yachts at the Riviera showcase on H Arm at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show from May 23.”
