Radical Thinking for Unrivalled Pleasure
In Riviera long history Riviera have produced many new vessels, but none has challenged traditions or questioned the assumptions on which boats are generally built quite like Riviera Sport Yacht series.
This is especially true of the Riviera 4400, a boat rich in innovations - some quite radical.
The story starts with the revolutionary Volvo Penta Inboard Performance System (IPS), a technology that features steerable drive units mounted under the hull with counter-rotating, forward-facing propellers. Rather than â€˜pushing’ the boat along as with conventional propulsion, the boat is literally â€˜pulled’ forward through the water.
The result is superb handling, a remarkably tight turning circle and, thanks to an intuitive joystick, docking control and other close-quarters manoeuvres are delightfully easy. What’s more, IPS uses up to 30% less fuel than conventional drive systems.
With the standard diesel horsepower ratings available, you can also look forward to a thrilling ride: racy, responsive, yet soft and dry.
The hull is equally noteworthy. Not only is it designed using the latest CAD software, which contributes to the outstanding hydrodynamics of the hull, it has been constructed using the most up-to-date infusion-moulding technology.
Compared with traditional open lay-up of fibreglass and resin, this infusion system produces more uniform thickness, reduced weight and greater strength. The hull is also divided into three sections, including a collision bulkhead forward.
