A Riviera Like None Before

She is a luxury boat beyond anything previously built by Riviera.

The exciting new Riviera 5800 Sport Yacht, to be launched at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in May this year, is the latest and most dramatic of the company’s award-winning European-style Sport Yacht series.

The Riviera 5800 Sport Yacht takes luxury boating to a new level with its three or four cabin option including full beam master stateroom with midships king size double bed, the option of a galley in the saloon or below decks, an expansive cockpit with large dining table and a garage that can accommodate a 3.2-metre tender.

The 5800 Sport Yacht design further expands the indoor-outdoor character and sense of light and space introduced on the first award-winning Riviera 3600 Sport Yacht and carried on to the 4700SY and 4400SY. The greater volume has allowed designers to take both exterior lines and internal design to a new level of sophistication to create even more visual appeal.

Fixed and opening portlights in the hull are a striking feature that, together with opening portholes each side, add natural light and ventilation into the full beam master stateroom and the other cabins.

Another external feature new to Riviera design is the anchor system with anchor chain and winches safely below the deck line.

The master stateroom features a king-size double bed amidships, deep walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom. The VIP guest stateroom forward features a queen island double bed and ensuite. The starboard twin cabin can quickly and easily be converted to a double simply by sliding the inner bed across. The bedside table disappears under the sliding bed to reveal an alternative bedside table. The port side cabin features upper and lower bunks. This cabin is replaced by the galley in the below deck galley layout option. A third bathroom is available to serve the twin cabins.

The main saloon features a large U-shape galley aft and a large dinette forward. The forward section of the galley doubles as a breakfast servery with two stools forward. In the below deck galley option, the saloon galley area is replaced by a leather lounge. Helm and companion seats forward on the starboard side are able to swivel to face aft.

In the cockpit, a massive high-low table has seating for up to eight people fore and aft including an optional aft-facing seat.

Designed exclusively using Riviera’s new NX three-dimensional CAD software system, the 5800 Sport Yacht contains a host of innovations and technologies.

The boat employs revolutionary Volvo Penta IPS propulsion, an integrated system of marine diesel engines and steerable drive units mounted under the hull with twin counter rotating, forward facing, propellers. This system offers easy handling and manoeuvring even in tight situations and a joystick for easy docking. Volvo Penta IPS also offers up to 30 percent better fuel consumption than traditional shaft drive systems. Three Volvo Penta IPS 600 diesels rated at 435hp each are standard.

With a fuel capacity of 2,650 litres (700 US gal), the efficient drive system helps provide a long cruising range for this boat of about 450 nautical miles at 22knots. Water capacity is 750 litres (198 US gal).

The hull has been constructed utilising infusion moulding technology rather than the traditional open moulded lay-up of fibreglass and resin. The resin is introduced to the hull mould via an injection system and drawn through the glass fibre layers using vacuum suction, resulting in consistent hull thickness, reduced hull weight and improved glass fibre to resin ratio, providing greater strength. This system was first utilised with Riviera’s 4400 Sport Yacht.
