As an island nation, Australia owes its founding to the traditions of the sea, and the country’s boat builders take this heritage seriously. That includes Riviera Yachts, a leading manufacturer of pleasure boats with a line of 14 models ranging in size from 36 to 75 feet. Based in Coomera, Queensland, Riviera is one of Australia's largest luxury boat builders. As such, the company has forged alliances with some of the biggest names in boating to produce a range of world-class products. They include Dutch naval architect Frank Mulder, who contributed running surface designs to many Riviera models. The boats are powered by modern propulsion systems, including pod drives from Volvo Penta and Cummins MerCruiser. According to Riviera, its models are the most awarded luxury boats in Australian history. The flagship 75 was complete in 2012 and is the largest model in the company’s 32-year history.
From the moment you take control of this blue water performer you'll appreciate its advanced hull design with its soft ride and greater control. The twin diesel powerplants give the Riviera 37 spirited performance yet restrained operating costs. Up on the flybridge, there's room to seat 3 guests forward of the ergonomically-designed helm station.
Step below and you feel like you're in a much larger craft thanks to the inspiring layout and a beam of 4.23 m. The galley is more spacious, it has a bigger saloon area and there's the option of an 'L' or a 'U' shaped dinette for more comfortable entertaining. That unmistakable Riviera craftsmanship is expressed in an interior treatment featuring hand finished gloss woodwork, leather trim and contemporary designer colours. Even the bathroom is more spacious and boasts the latest designer fittings and clean styling. A generator set and reverse cycle air conditioning are standard for year round comfort and convenience.
Serious fishermen have praised the transom door design which ensures less water comes into the cockpit when backing up on a fish. Everyone will appreciate the spacious teak-laid cockpit which is perfect for relaxing, fishing and soaking up the sun.
