The new 64 SMY begins a tour of Australia and NZ
The new Riviera 64 Sports Motor Yacht starts its tour of Australia and New Zealand this week, with American preview dates to be announced shortly.
Riviera is now commencing the manufacture of seven 64 SMYs, with most of the new Owners yet to see their new boats because of ongoing travel restrictions.
”There’s certainly a lot of expectation for the 64 SMY from our end, as we are building our new boat by remote control,” says one of the new owners, Bruce Eddington of Melbourne, Victoria. “Normally we’d be on the Gold Coast three times by now and spending time at the factory being part of her build process, except the travel restrictions have precluded us from doing this. We’re pleased to have been kept up to date with photos and videos of her progress, and we have great trust in Riviera to build a boat that we’re happy with.”
The 64 boasts offers four staterooms including a full-beam master, three bathrooms, a large covered mezzanine, expansive flybridge and versatile foredeck.
The mezzanine design, which flows into the aft galley and beyond to the first-class saloon, can be enclosed with clears for all-weather boating. The expansive flybridge adds another level of luxury with the feel of a second saloon, complete with its own rear deck and elevated views.
The accommodation deck is complemented by the amenity of a spacious and versatile utility room with a washer and dryer and plenty of extra storage space. The utility room can also be optioned as crew quarters.
Powered by the choice of twin MAN turbo V8 1300hp or V12 1550hp, diesels deliver quiet, effortless and smooth acceleration giving her a top speed of around 34 knots.
