Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht Video and Photos
The cockpit is the most magnetic cockpit design we have seen on a single level cruiser. It will draw the occupants in and hold them there for extended periods due to the high level of appointments and functional layout. It has been designed to cover both ends of the spectrum. The extended hardtop protects you from the elements but should you want to let the sun or the moon to shine through, the electric sunroof in the cockpit allows it to be controlled according to your desires. If you love cooking outside, you can now do it without the elements playing a influencing role, protected from the wind and the rain the BBQ is tucked in the forward port area of the cockpit. The BBQ station is more of an outdoor kitchen with under bench refrigeration, ice maker, sink and expansive cooking surfaces, making this area the envy of any Aussie beach house.
One of our favourite parts of the cockpit is the seating arrangement, spend an afternoon reading a book stretched out looking over the transom, smell the delights cooking on the BBQ or gather family and friends around for an afternoon that flows into dinner aboard. The connection with the galley is perfect extension of both zones blending the two areas with ideal functionality. Whether it is entertaining with finger foods or providing culinary delights to cockpit table, the galley bench is the perfect service bench to both the outdoor chef and the fortunate guests seated around the cockpit.
If it didn’t look so enticing inside it would be hard to leave the cockpit, with the ability to be bathed in either sun or moon light from the second opening roof, the sumptuous saloon and galley are only two of the three zones inside the main deck level.
The helm design looks like it has taken design cues from the luxury automotive and aeronautical dash layouts. It is advanced with an uncomplicated layout, the beauty about this helm is that it has another seating zone blended to make it an enviable position to be both underway and at anchor.
Down below the accommodations are of an exceptionally high standard, the finish and the appointments are of a pocket Super Yacht standard. Three stunning cabins accommodate six guests in absolute luxury. The full beam master stateroom is the owner’s sanctuary, comfortable underway during coastal cruising and an oasis at anchor, blissful sleeps await the fortunate owners.
Even the foredeck has developed thought processes regarding the functionality, often an under utilised area due to the exposure to the elements Riviera has offered a solution so simple it is hard to believe others haven’t thought of it before. The adjustable sun pads on the foredeck are not only equipped with sound they have included a retractable Bimini for respite from the sun without retreating aft.
With the new 5400 sport yacht Riviera have raised the bar even further, this model is set to dominate the sales in the sub 60 foot single level cruiser market. The order books have filled faster than any other new model, it’s worth securing your production slot before the availability pushes out too far.
