On display at ONE°15 Marina Club will be the luxurious 75 Enclosed Flybridge Seabreeze – the seaworthy Riviera that cruised 4,366-nautical-miles from Sydney to Singapore under her own steam over 21 days in 2014. The epic voyage included a 1,850nm ocean passage direct to Singapore from Darwin without making landfall or stopping for additional fuel.

“The Singapore Yacht Show – now in its 6th year – is an important opportunity to share and celebrate the sheer pleasure of boating with Australia’s most-awarded builder of luxury motor yachts,” says Riviera chairman and owner Rodney Longhurst. “It is with great pride that we will be staging our Singapore Yacht Show display in conjunction with Reel Torque Yachts, our Riviera and Belize specialist dealer servicing the Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam regions.”

“Our display will also feature full details of all current models across our five distinctive luxury motor yacht collections: the Riviera Flybridge, Sport Yacht, SUV and new Sports Motor Yacht designs, as well as the timelessly classic Belize Motor Yacht line,” continued Longhurst.

“The 75 model has now evolved into the fleet flagship – the palatial 77 Enclosed Flybridge – which is a brilliant blend of luxury cruising and fishing capabilities with all the comforts of a world-class luxury resort,” says Longhurst.

The impressive 24.7-metre 77 Enclosed Flybridge has sleek lines, a sheer and sports-inspired targa as well as striking safety glass feature panels that visually link her contemporary, recessed hull windows to provide a sophisticated and stylish hull finish.

“With the evolution of the 75 to the 77, there’s an additional two feet of length in her expansive 193.6 square-foot (17.99m2) cockpit, an elegant 49.5 square-foot (22.59m2) mezzanine and four staterooms including an unashamedly indulgent full-beam master suite, four bathrooms and an optional self-contained crew cabin,” adds Longhurst.

The state-of-the-art, fully enclosed flybridge of the 77 Enclosed features a forward helm while an external tournament station on the rear deck ensures clear cockpit observation when docking, or when the fishing action is underway. An optional massive and lavish sun pad and casual dining/sitting area can be located on the foredeck, enhancing her luxury lifestyle and relaxation attributes even further.

The 77 is powered by twin MAN V12 shaft-drive engines (2 x 1900hp/1397kW) which, under full load, achieve a cruising range of 556nm at 26.4 knots with 10 per cent fuel reserve.

Reel Torque Yachts will also have full details of Riviera’s latest new model premieres including the 5400 Sport Yacht, 575 SUV, 57 Enclosed Flybridge and the 67 Sports Motor Yacht.

“We invite those attending the Singapore Yacht Show to come and say ‘G’day’ to our friendly team of experienced marine professionals team at the Riviera display located on D Arm,” says Longhurst.

After its appearance at SYS, Riviera is looking forward to hosting the 2016 Riviera Festival of Boating (May 19-22).

“Our Festival involves four fantastic days of fun and learning at our 14-hectare, world-class facility at Coomera on Australia’s Gold Coast,” says Longhurst. “Now in its fifth year, this unique festival of fun and learning brings together all aspects of boating, with over 70 free educational seminars and practical workshops covering all areas of seamanship – from line-work and advanced systems operation all the way through to understanding the weather and traditional chart navigation techniques.”

The festival is also an opportunity for luxury motor yacht owners, and aspiring owners from around the world to inspect Riviera’s latest models at a stunning red-carpet, undercover on-water showcase on the Riviera Marina.

This year the event will see the world premiere of the new 575 SUV and the Australia Premiere of the new 5400 Sport Yacht.
