The 4700 Sport Yacht breaks new ground for Riviera, including optional accommodation layout, a garage with 3-metre tender and hydraulic swim platform.
The elegant 4700SY expands on the single-level lifestyle design of the 3600SY including an aft galley and stainless steel pillarless aft bulkhead door and fold-up window that open the saloon right out into the cockpit.
This is also the second model Riviera to be extensively computer designed and moulded to ensure a perfect fit between hull and deck components.
Riviera worked closely with renowned naval architect Frank Mulder to develop a highly efficient underwater profile and rudder design featuring propeller tunnels and a Halyard exhaust system that exits under water. A bow thruster is standard equipment.
The swim platform and all of the hatches are made using Light Resin Transfer Moulding technology, a closed moulding system that ensures superior quality, consistency and strength of each component.
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.
Combining the security of shaft-drive diesel propulsion with an al fresco lifestyle character, the 4700SY magnifies the sense of light and space first seen on the 3600SY. Expansive panoramic windows and a huge electric sunroof in the saloon further enhance the relaxed, refreshing and airy ambience.
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. There is even an option for an ice-maker in this area. 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 in this innovative new Riviera Sport Yacht 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.
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.
Accommodation includes a fully carpeted master stateroom forward featuring a queen walk-around bed with an innerspring mattress and mitred corners. The ensuite bathroom is designed with a contemporary glass basin semi-recessed into a solid surface benchtop, Amtico flooring, shower stall with glass door, Vacuflush toilet and high quality mixer taps.
The second bathroom, accessed from the companionway, is equally well equipped and features an opening port-light and large deck hatch.
The second bedroom, portside, has twin beds with an infill available to convert to a double bed, bedside table with drawers and cedar-lined hanging locker. Two opening port lights provide additional natural light and air.
The optional third bedroom starboard is designed with upper and lower berths with storage under the lower bunk as well as a cedar-lined hanging locker. The alternative in this area is a lounge with doors into the master bedroom.
