Australia’s world-class motor yacht builder, Riviera, will present the World Premiere of the latest model in its outstanding Sports Motor Yacht collection, the 39, at the opening of the Sydney International Boat Show on Thursday, 2 August.

The new 39 Sports Motor Yacht will headline Riviera’s magnificent on-water showcase of 11 exquisite motor yachts at Cockle Bay in the heart of Sydney.

The showcase includes the Sydney Premiere of the sporty and adventurous Riviera 395 SUV and the long-range and luxurious 72 Sports Motor Yacht.

The showcase will also include the sophisticated 6000, 5400 and 4800 Sport Yachts, the blue-water 52 Enclosed and 43 Open Flybridge models, the sporty and adventurous 575 and 445 SUVs and the timeless classic Belize 54 Daybridge.

Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst said: “Our team at Riviera is proud to unveil our outstanding new 39 Sports Motor Yacht to boating aficionados in Sydney. She provides a compelling new entree to the Riviera family.

“Our world-class design team and engineers have crafted a sophisticated new hull and deck design, with raised bulwarks on the side decks and multiple entertainment spaces that are emblematic of Riviera Sports Motor Yachts.

“The Riviera 39 Sports Motor Yacht is a brilliant example of Riviera’s evolution and constant refinement across our five collections.”



Stepping aboard from a fixed swim platform through a starboard transom door, the cockpit is an open space for entertaining and water sports. A barbecue unit is set across the transom, facing forward and accessed from the swim platform.

In the cockpit,  a teak table and a lounge set under the awning window to port offer alfresco dining. Optional fold-out seating is recessed into the coaming on both sides.

Access to the engine room is via a large hydraulic lifting hatch while a smaller hatch, immediately aft of the saloon door, is available for day-to-day maintenance.

Sunlovers will enjoy the foredeck with its optional large sunlounge accessed via the side decks featuring raised bulwarks.

A stair-ladder on the starboard side of the cockpit connects this space with the extended flybridge where a twin helm-and-companion seat forward faces a helm with comprehensive engine controls and navigation displays behind a raked windscreen. Guests relax on an L-shape lounge aft of the helm while a superbly crafted rail  envelopes the rear section of the flybridge providing a plush backrest to the wide lounge, privacy screening and an anchor-point for navigational equipment.

Sun protection to the flybridge is provided by a folding bimini top.

The finest American white oak timber paneling and cabinetry skillfully pared with elegant fabrics enhance the contemporary styling throughout the 39 Sports Motor Yacht.

In the saloon, a fully-equipped aft galley is on the starboard side with a dining area opposite, offering 360-degree views.

The standard lower helm is forward to port and a lounge opposite provides sweeping views forward.

The lower deck provides sleeping accommodation for five adults in two staterooms. The luxurious master stateroom forward includes a queen-size walk-around double bed, a wardrobe, overhead lockers and shelving. Hull windows and a deck hatch flood the stateroom with natural light and fresh sea air.

The bathroom immediately aft includes a vanity, toilet and separate shower stall.

The midship stateroom includes twin beds athwartships to starboard and a single bed set along the port side. Natural light and fresh air is provided to this stateroom by generous hull windows, fitted on both sides with opening portholes.

Power for the new Riviera 39 Sports Motor Yacht  comes from twin Volvo Penta D6-IPS600 system with twin diesel engines (2 x 320kW/435hp) and IPS pod-drives and joystick control. All Volvo Penta systems, drives and electronics are covered by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty to complement Riviera’s structural five-year limited warranty.
