Riviera 4700 Sport Yacht - winning awards and turning heads

Riviera’s award-winning 4700 Sport Yacht is grace on the water, offering optional accommodation layouts, a garage with a three-metre tender and hydraulic swim platform.

The elegant single-level lifestyle design includes an aft galley and stainless steel pillarless aft bulkhead door and fold-up window that open the saloon right out into the cockpit.

Expansive panoramic windows and a huge electric sunroof in the saloon enhance the relaxed, refreshing and airy ambience.

The 4700 Sport Yacht scooped the awards pool in 2007, first winning Modern Boating magazine’s Cruiser of the Year and then the Australian marine industry’s Boat of the Year. 

Continuing Riviera’s commitment to innovation, the 4700SY offers owners the option of two accommodation layouts to further personalise the vessel: a three cabin and two bathroom design or two cabins and two bathrooms plus a below-deck lounge area.

The cockpit of the 4700SY is an expansive entertaining area, complete with an electric barbecue built into the transom, fully equipped wet bar: bar fridge, solid surface benchtop with a sink and a locker with rubbish bin. The versatile cockpit table can be raised or lowered to create a dining table, casual coffee table or even a sun lounge.

One of the most stunning innovations is a garage tucked under the cockpit with a 3.1m Zodiac tender that can be launched with ease on to the teak hydraulic swim platform. The entire platform raises and lowers with touch of a button to help launch or retrieve the tender and personal watercraft.

If you want to get away from it all and simply soak up the sun, the forward deck features a recessed sunpad with stainless hand rails and drink holders.

The saloon of the 4700 Sport Yacht is an extension of the entertaining area with an L-shaped leather lounge running the full length, with chaise. A fold-out dinette table can be lowered to convert to a coffee table.

Portside forward of the lounge is a cocktail cabinet with lift-up lid for bottle storage and drawers for glasses. Entertainment is provided by an electric lift 26” LCD TV, Bose Lifestyle system with CD/DVD player, four speakers in the saloon and two to the cockpit.

The contemporary styled aft galley includes a two-burner electric cooktop, convection microwave oven, under-bench refrigerator with freezer compartment, drawer dishwasher and overhead storage lockers above the cooktop as well as a pull-out pantry.
