Australian motor yacht builder Riviera has confirmed it will premiere the 46 Sports Motor Yacht at the 2024 Palm Beach International Boat Show, which takes place in Florida from 21 to 24 March.

The Riviera showcase, held in partnership with OneWater Yacht Group, will also include the SUV flagship, the 645; the 6000 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition; and the Belize 54 Daybridge.

“Visitors to our display will be able to experience and appreciate the bluewater heritage, meticulous engineering and supreme luxury, which has earned Riviera international regard,” says OneWater Yacht Group President Bryan Braley. “Riviera’s smart boating technology really has made boating even more enjoyable and relaxing.”

The 46 Sports Motor Yacht is the sixth model among Riviera’s line-up of Sports Motor Yachts from 46 to 72 feet. The 46 offers many of the Sports Motor Yacht design features, including multiple entertaining spaces that stretch from the all-water sports cockpit to foredeck sunlounges and a generous open flybridge that can accommodate up to eight guests.


A covered alfresco deck forward of the cockpit seamlessly connects guests with the galley, saloon and dining spaces forward, creating one large relaxation or entertaining space.

Opposite the galley, an internal timber staircase with stainless steel handrails leads to the open flybridge with aft helm on the starboard side, a wet bar and twin lounges forward.

The yacht’s accommodation deck offers three double staterooms and two bathrooms. The master stateroom and en suite bathroom are forward while guest staterooms are amidships.

Power for the 46 Sports Motor Yacht is provided by twin Volvo Penta D8 IPS800s delivering 441 kW (600 hp) each. Owners can select the option of Volvo Penta D11 IPS950s delivering 533 kW (725 hp) each.

Riviera 645 SUV

The 645 SUV is the largest model in Riviera’s six-model SUV collection, combining the blue-water hull pedigree and all-water sports cockpits of the Sports Motor Yachts with the single-level living attributes of the Riviera Sport Yacht.

A few steps up from the cockpit is the entertainment and living epicentre of the yacht; a semi-enclosed alfresco deck offering a lounge to port and an L-shaped lounge around a dining table to starboard. The foredeck provides lounge seating for up to 10 people.

In the saloon, a galley along the port side includes an island bench. A fold-out timber dining table on the starboard side accommodates up to six guests. The forward helm offers the option of two or three leather seats facing a comprehensive system and navigation controls.

The 645 SUV offers the option of four staterooms or three with a lower deck atrium lounge.

Owners are offered a choice of V-drive twin MAN V8 delivering 956 kW (1300 hp) or MAN V12 delivering 1,140 kW (1550 hp) diesels offering exceptional power-to-weight performance.

Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition

Also going on display is the Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition. Owners may select from three or four staterooms, including the options of a lower lounge, crew cabin or utility room as well as a full-beam presidential master suite amidships. The 6000 also offers three bathrooms, including ensuites for the master and the VIP guest stateroom forward.

An entertainer’s aft deck leads directly to the vast saloon where glass skylights illuminate the aft galley area and a large sunroof provides light and air to the dining, lounge and helm forward.

A large tender garage beneath the aft deck is accessed through a transom door. Power for the Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht is provided by twin Volvo Penta D11 IPS950s delivering 533 kW (725 hp) each.

Belize 54 Daybridge

The Belize 54 Daybridge will be on display at PIBS 2024, showcasing a balance of European style and Australian practicality. The yacht provides a three-stateroom layout with below-deck atrium and a full-beam master suite amidships.

The aft deck includes a breakfast or cocktail bar while the foredeck offers a sunpad. In the saloon, a fully equipped galley is to port while the dinette is to starboard. A lower helm station with guest seating is forward on the starboard side.

The daybridge, accessed by stairs from the aft deck, includes a forward helm with twin captains’ chairs and generous seating aft around a convertible table. To starboard is a wet bar.

The Belize 54 offers the choice of the twin Volvo Penta D8 IPS800s delivering 441 kW (600 hp) or the twin Volvo Penta D11 IPS950s delivering 533 kW (725 hp) each.

“We’re proud to premiere the exciting 46 Sports Motor Yacht at Palm Beach within our on-water showcase,” says Braley.

“Each yacht is an outstanding example from Riviera’s 22-model collection and they all represent Riviera’s commitment to assisting owners to enjoy their ultimate boating experience.

“Our OneWater Yacht Group team looks forward to welcoming Riviera owners and visitors to inspect these luxurious models at our showcase opposite the Meyer Amphitheater at Ramp 7, South Flagler Drive, from 21 to 24 March .”
