The brand’s showcase at the event, previously known as Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show, will include the world premiere of the highly anticipated 5400 Sport Yacht, and the Americas Premiere of the 525 design from the SUV crossover collection.
Completing Riviera’s lineup will be the recently released true blue-water 57 Enclosed and 52 Enclosed Flybridges, as well as a 43 Open Flybridge, 445 SUV, 6000 Sport Yacht, and 54 Daybridge from the award-winning Belize range.
“Our stunning Miami showcase will reflect Riviera’s unparalleled passion for excellence in all areas of design, technology, performance and luxury livability,” says Riviera Chairman and Owner Rodney Longhurst.
Riviera’s Florida-based international sales director Chris McCafferty believes the 5400 Sport Yacht will set a new standard for luxury single-level living, cruising and entertaining yachts over 50-feet.

The 5400 features a wide hydraulic boarding platform and electric-opening garage with enough room for a 3.3-metre tender with permanently mounted 20hp outboard, which can be easily launched or retrieved at the touch of a button using the built-in electric winch. Her cockpit includes a large forward-facing transom lounge.
The 5400’s interior is both welcoming and expansive with a full-beam master stateroom, VIP guest stateroom and a port-side guestroom, which can also be an optional atrium lounge.
Speaking of the Riviera SUV crossover, Longhurst says: “Riviera’s striking new 525 SUV design is a clear reflection of the growing worldwide appeal of luxury motor yachts with the versatility to meet the requirements of both the avid angler and cruising entertainer.”
“The innovative Riviera SUV crossover collection combines the high-performance, blue-water cruising and luxury livability attributes of the classic Riviera Flybridge collection, and the single-level, leisurely entertaining features of the stylish Riviera Sport Yacht design,” Longhurst adds.
The 525 SUV offers new fixed transom seating, with options for storage or live bait tank, as well as a comfortable three-seater cockpit mezzanine lounge to port. To starboard there’s a lift-up lid with gas strut that reveals a double BBQ with stainless steel splash-back and LED lighting, ice-maker, sink, solid surface bench top and even more storage.
Opening, tinted side windows and two electric sliding sunroofs built into the solid GRP hardtop bring light and fresh air into the saloon while the windscreen looking out over the forward deck and bow draws in more light below to the accommodation deck.
Below, the 525 SUV has a flexible accommodation plan that comprises three staterooms with portside master and forward VIP guest stateroom, two bathrooms, premium quality entertainment systems, all with supreme levels of comfort.
