Riviera’s stylish and sophisticated 6000 Sport Yacht heralds an exciting new era for luxury on-water entertaining.
This opulent flagship of our Sport Yacht fleet is supremely comfortable with its clever and convenient alfresco lifestyle concepts, ultramodern technology and palatial appointments – indeed it is a high-performance vessel akin to a floating six-star resort.
The new features of this stately Sport Yacht start to become evident even before you step aboard – her sleek lines are complemented by contemporary stateroom port holes, large fixed skylights and two electric sliding sunroofs built into the curvaceous fibreglass hardtop … finessed with an attention to every detail that confirms this magnificent vessel is indeed a Riviera.
Of course the awe-inspiring aesthetic appeal of the 6000 Sport Yacht is just the beginning – our talented Australian and international designers, and expert engineers, have captured an enriched sense of light, space and liveability from bow to stern … and everywhere in between.
Simultaneously, natural ventilation is achieved throughout the entire boat – from the luxuriously furnished saloon through the generous-sized staterooms below deck – yet allowing the flexibility for owners to truly personalise their investment.
Befitting a pleasure craft of this calibre, all on-board appliances, entertainment systems, fittings and furnishings are contemporary and a perfect fit with the state-of-the-art technology which helps us set new benchmarks in terms of convenience, reliability and superior sea-keeping performance.
And it helps us remain true to the Riviera ethos of sourcing the best and most reliable equipment and fittings from the best and most reliable suppliers to help our valued owners achieve ‘the ultimate boating experience’.
Stepping from the large hydraulic swim platform through either of the wide transom side gates and into the expansive teak-laid cockpit of the 6000, you’ll immediately appreciate the evolution of the luxury indoor/outdoor character for which our Sport Yacht series is internationally renowned.
Wide, walk-around non-slip side decks with well-placed hand rails give access to her colossal-sized sun pad which sprawls the centreline of the forward deck. Here there’s an independent two-speaker Fusion AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth and USB port, as well as handy water-tight storage compartments and, of course, a deep ice box to keep the champagne perfectly chilled and the beer icy cold while you soak up the sun.
A closer inspection of the generous 10.5 metre squared cockpit confirms the clever lifestyle and storage concepts of the 6000. A practical twin barbecue with convenient drawer fridge and freezer sits conveniently aft above a large garage where a 3.2 metre tender and outboard can be easily loaded with built-in electric winch, or a jet ski can be securely stored with additional room for accessories and water toys.
The 6000’s curvaceous fibreglass hardtop provides shelter and shade from the extremities, and houses the cockpit’s own electric sliding sunroof which brings extra sunlight and fresh air into the alfresco area when desired. An L-shaped lounge/dining area to port comfortably seats six people, and a teak table lowers to create a large daybed. There’s also a two-metre lounge to starboard to seat an additional three people, further reinforcing the entertainment and enjoyment of the 6000 Sport Yacht and confirming this boat as “the ultimate entertainer”.
The free-flowing feel throughout the 6000 is enhanced with a large glass awning window which opens between the cockpit and spacious saloon, bringing the outdoors inside and affirming the large aft U-shaped galley as the central entertainment hub of the boat.
Of course the galley boasts high-end Miele induction cooktop, dishwasher, convection microwave oven and rangehood as well as three top-of-the-range Vitrifrigo drawer fridges and two freezers as well as a convenient pull-out pantry. A tinted bronze glass finish to the overhead galley cabinets adds yet another touch of refinement to the walnut satin varnish joinery used throughout the boat.
Natural light in the galley is enhanced with fixed overhead skylights and a second Webasto electric sunroof above the saloon dining, lounge area and helm. Air-conditioning is standard to both the saloon and galley however natural breezes are captured through the sunroof and through opening windows to port and starboard, ensuring occupants and guests remain cool and comfortable.
The spacious and elegantly appointed saloon, with its soft-touch natural leathers and highest quality fabrics, is perfect for indoor entertaining. A U-shaped lounge with dinette table to port seats six adults, and a large two-metre, three-seater lounge opposite is large enough to enjoy a lazy afternoon nap and versatile enough to provide a work space or additional dining area – its central ottoman can also be used as an extra seat around the dining table for games or quality time with the family.
The extensive indoor entertainment system includes a 40” LCD TV integrated with a Bose AM/FM stereo, DVD player with amplifier, sub-woofer and four speakers to the saloon, with additional speakers via a second-zone, two-speaker system to the cockpit.
All critical navigation electronics, comprehensive engine instrumentation and vessel controls are within easy reach of the high-backed Treben Italian leather helm and companion seats, both of which have electric forward/aft adjustment and recessed footrests. Fittingly, the ergonomically designed, new-look helm has a sunken backlit dash, high-quality sports steering wheel, ample storage compartments for binoculars and instrument display covers, as well as drink-holders and enough space for two 17” display screens.
Whether overnighting in a sheltered bay or on a long-distance coastal cruise, the inspiring design of the 6000 Sport Yacht ensures supreme comfort for her owners and guests.
The full-beam master stateroom has a king-size, walk-around bed amidships, contemporary timber-finish headboard and bedside tables, new and striking deep windows on either side as well as opening portholes on both sides which adds a striking visual feature as well as ensuring plenty of fresh air.
Transition glass helps flood the master stateroom with natural light when the large and luxurious port-side ensuite is not in use, yet offers complete privacy at the press of a button. The ensuite boasts luxurious Milli Glance and Grohe fixtures, complemented by a heated towel rail and the highest quality Italian ceramic non-slip flooring. A frameless glass door leads to the large shower stall and includes a chrome showerhead on a slide bar, again complemented by the highest quality non-slip flooring.
The master stateroom also features a third and convenient C-Zone digital switching control panel while the entertainment system comprises a bulkhead-mounted 40” LCD TV and Samsung home theatre system. There is also a make-up table and ottoman forward and a three-seater leather lounge to starboard, while adding to the supreme comfort for the owners is a deep walk-in-wardrobe with ample hanging space.
The 6000 Sport Yacht’s enriched sense of light, space and liveability is also evident in the atrium as you step below deck from the saloon, courtesy of the wide windscreen, extremely generous headroom and ultra-modern technology that you’d expect from a Riviera.
The VIP guest stateroom forward features a queen island bed with hanging lockers port and starboard, its own ensuite with separate shower stall and contemporary style bowl and vanity cabinet above the solid surface bench top, with lots of storage below. Standard entertainment in this guest stateroom is a 22” LCD TV/DVD combination with Fusion AM/FM stereo, Bluetooth and USB port including two speakers. Fixed portholes are standard and bring in even more natural light, complementing the shapely overhead deck hatch.
The starboard twin cabin with full-length beds also has an overhead deck hatch with Oceanair screen as well as an ensuite which doubles as a day head. The port-side cabin, with upper and lower bunks, can be converted to a lower galley or atrium lounge with five-seater lounge area with its own integrated storage features, including side-by-side washer/dryer, optional wine cooler or an additional entertainment system featuring a 32” TV, X-Box and DVD player.
Step into the future
Innovation is a key foundation of the Riviera ethos of producing world-class luxury power boats, built to last and to handle the testing Australian offshore conditions. To this end, Riviera’s design and engineering team has sourced the latest technology from around the world.
A key feature of the 6000 is the innovative C-Zone central AC/DC switching control and systems monitoring, and there are three control panels on-board – in the galley, at the helm and in the full-beam master stateroom. C-Zone allows owners to energise all lighting and electrics depending on the requirements with just the touch of a button. It comes pre-programmed with three custom settings – “entertain”, “cruise” and “dock unattended” – and these modes can be customised by the owner, so the system works exactly how you want. There’s also a “service” mode that shuts down all power and systems. Other user-friendly features include interior light-dimming, timer controls, automated circuit control, wiper speed and wash functions.
The exquisite satin walnut interior joinery throughout the 6000SY is hand-finished by Riviera’s varnish master craftsmen. Other timber options are gloss walnut, gloss teak, gloss cherry and gloss beach.
The 6000 Sport Yacht has full joystick steering while cruising as well as an additional pop-up joystick to port in the cockpit to aid precise docking.
Also standard are full auto-pilot, auto-trim, Dynamic Positioning System (DPS) for station-holding while preparing lines and fenders or waiting off a fuel jetty, as well as Anti-Corrosion Protection (ACP). There’s also the option to upgrade to the innovative Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit system which further raises the bar in terms of centralised control of navigation equipment, engine and alarms.
For the 6000 Sport Yacht, Riviera has employed the revolutionary Volvo Penta propulsion system with twin IPS2 950 (533kW /2 x 725hp) pod drives which, in addition to superior handling and manoeuvring in tight situations, also offer impressive fuel efficiency, low noise levels, long cruising range and a high top-end speed.
State-of-the-art technology also encompasses the 6000’s maintenance-free battery banks charging system via the engines, the Mastervolt charging and inverter system and self-monitoring Cummins Onan generator, network capabilities and diagnostics providing peace of mind at sea.
All this, combined , while the practical design concepts result in quick accessibility to key maintenance points throughout the entire boat, thus increasing reliability, reducing future servicing costs and confirming the Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht genuinely is in a class all of its own.
The 6000 Sport Yacht’s confident poise is just as evident offshore as it is at anchor – her solid and robust hull with keel is the evolution of Riviera’s rich 34-year heritage in building world-class luxury powerboats that are proven in the tough Australian blue-water conditions.
Our leading-edge technology and legendary build quality combines super-strong hand layups with solid GRP hull from the waterline down, structural core material in the hull flanks, main deck and hardtop, as well as precisely fitted, lightweight resin transfer-moulded small parts that are pre-fitted for a perfect seal when all major components are bonded together.
However, even before a single piece of timber was cut for the plug work, the 6000 was created in-house using industry-leading Unigraphics 3D computer software, allowing Riviera’s team of talented and passionate international designers and engineers to put to purpose every inch of available space, with a firm focus on convenient access to every key maintenance point so any issues can be quickly identified and addressed, and service costs are kept to a minimum.
Of course, this thoughtful consideration for our Riviera family of owners is a key part of our ethos of doing all we can to help our valued owners achieve … ‘the ultimate boating experience’.
