The Riviera 6000 Sport Yacht is a well thought-out boat that works on many levels. The chic and stylish saloon, featuring soft leather upholstery and beautifully crafted satin walnut joinery, is light bright and airy. Large opening side windows and a huge windscreen provide 360° views no matter where you’re seated and overhead, a large electrically operated sunroof provides for those times that call for open-top boating. There’s plenty of places to get comfortable, with large U-shaped seating and dinette to port and a three-seater settee to starboard with an ottoman that cleverly slides out and becomes a table, creating another small dining or breakfast nook, work, or games area.
The large U-shaped galley aft is practical, functional and perfectly positioned. It’s central to any action inside or out and family and guests can move freely between the cockpit and the saloon without disturbing anyone preparing meals or snacks. It’s also handy too – refreshments from the fridge or freezer are only ever a couple of steps away whether you’re inside or out.
Included is a full complement of name-brand appliances; induction cooktop, convection microwave, dishwasher, rangehood, three fridge and two freezer drawers, pull-out pantry and plenty of bench space and storage. It’s also bathed in natural light, enhanced by the two fixed skylights overhead.
Further aft, the fully covered cockpit is in itself a fabulous outdoor room. Spacious and beautifully appointed, it’s well set up for outdoor living with seating to port around a table (that drops to form a day bed) and additional seating to starboard. On the transom, a built-in wetbar incorporates a barbecue, sink, fridge and freezer drawers and, overhead, another large sunroof in the cockpit top provides the opportunity to add sunshine to the al fresco experience.
The Riviera 6000 is equipped with triple D11 Volvo IPS 950s , which produce top speeds of 26 knots and a comfortable cruise of 22 knots.
