The Australian-built Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht 2018 is a new build slated to arrive in the Seattle area this January. With its sleek, modern design and sporty performance, the 4800 seems to empathize that luxury and utility can go hand in hand.
A novel and readily identifiable feature when stepping aboard is the electronic tender garage built into the transom of the yacht between the swim step and covered cockpit. An outdoor galley to the port and a BBQ station built into the transom/tender garage are also located in the cockpit to make entertaining that much easier. The cockpit is designed with hosting in mind, and ample seating is positioned around a dining table. A stainless steel framed awning with side curtains adds protection to the cockpit deck. The rails lead forward to the large foredeck that has a padded sun lounge area.
Inside, the generous windows built into the cabin and the expansive headroom make for an interior that feels like a larger yacht. Two cabins with two enclosed heads accommodate five people. There is more seating around a dining table inside in the form of an elevated c-shaped wraparound lounge to starboard.
The real attractor is the helm. With leather detailing and a racecar feel, the skipper has control of modern features like IPS joystick controls for easy docking. What’s more, a sunroof can open up the cabin on a nice day.
The 4800 is powered by two Volvo Penta D8-IPS800 inboard diesel engines. At the recommended cruising speed of around 26 knots, the yacht has an estimated range of around 300 nautical miles.
The Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht looks like a great mid-sized luxury sport cruiser for those who want to arrive at their destination with speed and style. If interested, contact local dealer Emerald Pacific Yachts or check out emeraldpacificyachts.com for pricing and more information.
