3600 Sport Yacht Series II - IPS

Fuel-efficient power

Volvo Penta IPS – Inboard Performance System – is a revolutionary propulsion system. With dramatically increased efficiency, Volvo Penta IPS offers fast acceleration, quiet running and significantly reduced fuel consumption along with superb manoeuvrability.


Two luxurious cabins

Accommodation below consists of a master stateroom with island bed, 6’ 7” headroom, and generous storage and hanging space. The guest cabin features an athwartships double bed as well as a single bed running fore and aft.


Expansive saloon

It’s all here, helm, lounge and aft galley. Specification is high. The soft leather L-shaped lounge is inviting. The feeling of being in control at the helm is compelling, the moulded dash is akin to a luxury European car.


Central galley

On the same level as the cockpit and saloon, and cool thanks to air-conditioning in the saloon, you’ll cook up a feast with inclusions such as microwave oven, cooktop, fridge/freezer, stainless steel sink and significant bench space.


Indoor-outdoor living

The huge rear window and door between cockpit and saloon, are a revelation. Stylish, in tinted glass and polished S/S frame, the opening creates the ultimate indoor-outdoor feel. The two areas just flow into one.


Sun special

For sun-worshippers, there is a double sun-pad on the foredeck. But to escape the midday sun you can gravitate to the ambience of the cockpit where overhead protection, refrigerator and huge boarding platform all add dimension to the outdoor space.


Contrasting décor

Impressive are the subtle colour contrasts of the headliner and light beech timber. Details such as the fabric concealing the speakers and the silver trim of the cabinetry, certainly catch the eye and create a timeless interior décor.


Innovation personified

Practical features like Amtico flooring, transom mouldings, gas struts on hatches, panoramic windows, CD/DVD player and a 22” LCD TV, offer insight into Riviera’s commitment to quality, design and sheer luxury.

3600 Sport Yacht Series II - IPS

A fresh new style, a fabulous new boating experience

Every now and then a work of art or piece of design comes along that is more than an evolution of what came before – it is a quantum leap in thinking and execution. The Riviera Sport Yacht is such a leap.

The result might best be described as a serious motor yacht with a refreshingly light and sporty side.

Starting from a blank canvas gave us the opportunity to address the needs of today’s yacht owner like never before. Drawing on contemporary architecture, automotive styling, fashion, leading furniture design and other sources we have created a yacht of impeccable style and one that is utterly modern.

Everything about the Sport Yacht is designed to make life on the water easy, relaxed and fun.

To dream of such a yacht is one thing, to create it is another. However, no one is better equipped to realise such a vision than Australia’s most awarded builder of luxury motor yachts, Riviera.

A company with over 35 years yacht-building experience operating the largest manufacturing facility of its type in the Southern Hemisphere.

Harnessing the full weight of our international design, technology and manufacturing resources to the Sport Yacht project has produced a design that has even exceeded our expectations. And since the launch of this new range, the Riviera Sport Yacht Collection has received unprecedented praise from the international boating community and been the recipient of multiple ‘Boat of the Year Awards’.

If you are in search of a new luxury motor yacht that captures your heart and inspires your soul, your search is over.


The 3600 Sport Yacht, open for your enjoyment

One of the most striking features of the 3600 Sport Yacht is the large rear awning window and door between the cockpit and saloon. Not only is it extremely stylish with tinted glass set in a bold, highly polished stainless steel frame, it opens up to create the ultimate indoor-outdoor feeling. The two areas seamlessly flow into one to produce a unique alfresco experience.

The fact that the gourmet galley is on the same level as the cockpit and saloon also means that the chef remains in the middle of the party.

The galley is just a step away from the cockpit and for entertaining there is a second refrigerator here.

At every turn you will find Riviera ingenuity – such as the flat screen television in the saloon that raises and lowers out of sight at the touch of a button, the way the stainless steel swim ladder folds away, and the discreetly placed drink holders on the foredeck sunpad. As for comfort, the large L-shaped lounge with its soft leather and deep cushions is probably more inviting than the lounge in your living room.

The 3600 Sport Yacht epitomises, easy living and an idyllic environment to share leisure time with your family and friends. But this is a yacht of real substance too, one that boasts the most sophisticated design and construction methods including a hand-laid solid fibreglass hull with separate compartments throughout the hull and a watertight collision bulkhead forward.

The 3600 Sport Yacht is powered by the inspired Volvo Penta IPS pod drive system that is exceptionally smooth and quiet whilst unbelievably responsive and fuel-efficient.

This may be a new style of motor yacht but the quality and superior technology tells you that it is every inch a Riviera.

Style or good taste may be hard to define but you instantly recognise it when you see it… and you will see it here in abundance. It’s in everything from the subtle colour contrasts of the plush headliner material to the use of a light cherry timber with a satin finish. Even details such as the fabric concealing the saloon speakers and the stylish air conditioning vents have been carefully considered and beautifully executed.


Substance, style and practicality are the hallmarks of a Riviera

Of course, style goes beyond looks in that it is functional as well as fashionable – the practicality of the hardwearing synthetic flooring is an example here. And style has a feel to it: the solid feeling you get when you step aboard, the diameter of the hand rails, the moulding of the transom locker, the extensive use of gas struts on hatches that makes for easier, safer operation.

Again and again you will find yourself saying, “That’s clever… that’s thoughtful… that’s well finished.” That’s why you will find yourself saying, “I want a Riviera Sport Yacht.”

The sense of light and space aboard the 3600 Sport Yacht is extraordinary (in fact the 3600 is over 38 feet in overall length). The panoramic windows, uncluttered layout and the use of lighter timbers and innovative materials all contribute to an interior that’s just perfect for relaxed, fun-filled days and laid-back indulgent nights.

All your creature comforts are catered for including a quality onboard entertainment system featuring a CD/DVD player and a flat screen LED television.

The feeling of being in control as you sit at the helm is magnificent. For a start, you have such clear, sweeping views – and the moulded dash, reminiscent of a luxury European car, displays all instruments and controls in the most ergonomic fashion. Even someone new to boating will find this a remarkably easy vessel to handle.

Accommodation consists of a master stateroom with a large island bed, generous headroom, cupboard and hanging space. The full-beam guest cabin with a double and single bed is extreemly well appointed and luxuriously comfortable.

Even the bathroom echoes the same interior style and finesse with its solid surface vanity top, sink, quality fittings and a shower stall with glass partition.

If ever there was a yacht that epitomises Riviera’s pursuit of quality and represents our sheer creativity, this is it. If you are looking for an entirely new boating experience, we welcome you aboard the 3600 Sport Yacht.


The Volvo Penta IPS Advantage

The revolutionary Volvo Penta Inboard Performance System (IPS) offers a range of exciting advantages for the Riviera 3600 Sport Yacht owner. Better performance, fuel efficiency and quiet, smooth running. But perhaps the most appealing for skippers is the incredible slow-speed control offered by joystick maneuverability.

The Volvo Penta IPS drive system provides you with the ultimate control of your yacht when docking or in tight quarters.

As you approach a marina, jetty or mooring, move the engine lever controls into neutral, then press the docking button below the IPS joystick. Now you’re in joystick control. Neither wheel nor lever control will respond while you are in joystick mode.

The engines are limited to 1,000rpm in this mode to ensure you can’t accidentally find yourself going too fast. Then simply – gently – push the joystick in the direction you want the boat to go. Any direction – a full 360 degrees – the Volvo Penta IPS computer system automatically works out the best configuration of drive unit position to move the boat in that direction.

The Volvo Penta IPS joystick system takes all the pressure off berthing your yacht – whatever the strength of the wind or tide.
