Stepping from the large hydraulic swim platform through either of the wide transom side gates and into the expansive teak-laid cockpit of the 6000, you’ll immediately appreciate the evolution of the luxury indoor/outdoor character for which our Sport Yacht series is internationally renowned.
Wide, walk-around non-slip side decks with well-placed hand rails give access to her colossal-sized sun pad which sprawls the centreline of the forward deck. Here there’s an independent two-speaker Fusion AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth and USB port, as well as handy water-tight storage compartments and, of course, a deep ice box to keep the champagne perfectly chilled and the beer icy cold while you soak up the sun.
A closer inspection of the generous 10.5 metre squared cockpit confirms the clever lifestyle and storage concepts of the 6000. A practical twin barbecue with convenient drawer fridge and freezer sits conveniently aft above a large garage where a 3.2 metre tender and outboard can be easily loaded with built-in electric winch.
The 6000’s curvaceous fibreglass hardtop provides shelter and shade from the extremities, and houses the cockpit’s own electric sliding sunroof which brings extra sunlight and fresh air into the alfresco area when desired. An L-shaped lounge/dining area to port comfortably seats six people, and a teak table lowers to create a large daybed. There’s also a two-metre lounge to starboard to seat an additional three people, further reinforcing the entertainment and enjoyment of the 6000 Sport Yacht and confirming this boat as “the ultimate entertainer”.
The 6000 Sport Yacht’s confident poise is just as evident offshore as it is at anchor – her solid and robust hull with keel is the evolution of Riviera’s rich 34-year heritage in building world-class luxury powerboats that are proven in the tough Australian blue-water conditions.
Our leading-edge technology and legendary build quality combines super-strong hand layups with solid GRP hull from the waterline down, structural core material in the hull flanks, main deck and hardtop, as well as precisely fitted, lightweight resin transfer-moulded small parts that are pre-fitted for a perfect seal when all major components are bonded together.
However, even before a single piece of timber was cut for the plug work, the 6000 was created in-house using industry-leading Unigraphics 3D computer software, allowing Riviera’s team of talented and passionate international designers and engineers to put to purpose every inch of available space, with a firm focus on convenient access to every key maintenance point so any issues can be quickly identified and addressed, and service costs are kept to a minimum.
Of course, this thoughtful consideration for our Riviera family of owners is a key part of our ethos of doing all we can to help our valued owners achieve … ‘the ultimate boating experience’.
