2018 Riviera 68 Sports Motor Yacht

This refreshingly distinct style of yachting luxury has been developed in-house by the very talented Riviera design team after extensive consultation with members of the global family of Riviera owners who are seeking to cruise further afield and for extended periods. This process provides a unique insight and understanding of their aspirations for their dream yacht.

What we’ve heard is that our experienced luxury motor yacht owners are wanting to take their boating further afield with true long-range cruising, whilst still being able to fish effectively and enjoy myriad water sports pursuits, including diving, snorkelling and kayaking.

The Sports Motor Yacht collection – comprising two individual models: the 68 and 72 designs – will help luxury motor yacht owners fulfill these dreams, offering the exhilaration of supreme sports performance as well as ingenious interior flexibility with an array of luxury lifestyle features to enhance precious time aboard.

Whilst the specification varies considerably between the 68 and 72 models, the significant design difference is the additional space in the cockpit and mezzanine of the 72 Sports Motor Yacht.

Additional Information

Stepping aboard

Stepping from the wide boarding platform through either of the transom gates, the spaciousness of the Sports Motor Yacht’s expansive cockpit is immediately evident.

There is a considerable volume of cockpit storage with large lockers in the transom and deep fish bins in the floor, as well as a reinforced plate for an optional game chair. The coamings feature toe kicks for bracing, as well as optional heavy-duty stainless steel rod-holders.

Facing aft – and cleverly concealed under a moulded, gas strut-assisted lid – is a double barbecue with LED lights and a wet bar with a sink, tapware and an insulated cool box. There is also a hatch providing service access to the engine room as well as four removable tackle trays – in fact there’s a place for everything you’ll need for your extended voyaging.

Safely forward

Wide side decks with non-skid surfaces and thoughtfully placed handrails lead to the expansive foredeck of the Sports Motor Yacht. Here there’s a davit with electric winch for the simple and secure storage of your tender whilst passage-making.

At anchor, this space is able to transform into an optional alfresco entertaining area featuring a U-shaped lounge area and central table. This is a very social and inviting space.

You and your guests can enjoy refreshments courtesy of the insulated cool boxes to port and starboard, and there is a premium stereo with four speakers and interface for your smartphone – it’s a real entertainment zone.

Forward, there is a deep well for safety whilst accessing the array of anchoring equipment which includes a stainless steel Ultra anchor, and there are storage lockers to port and starboard for fenders and ropes.

Mezzanine delights

The teak-laid mezzanine level, at the very heart of this entertaining hub, is accessed via steps on both sides of the cockpit.

Here you will discover a large forward-facing central lounge with storage underneath, as well as two folding teak tables and space for additional occasional chairs.

To port, there is a large TV that folds down for viewing, as well as a door leading below to the day head and the utility space/storage area – which can optionally serve as an air-conditioned crew cabin – with direct access to the engine room through a watertight door.

Forward is a central breakfast bar area with large awning window that opens to the galley. The bar features two swing-out stools as well as an icemaker and storage.

A great deal of thought has been focused on the connectivity of the mezzanine and entertainment area to the luxurious interior – it all just flows together as one space.

Stepping inside

Upon opening the toughened glass door – set in a ship-like stainless steel frame – and stepping inside, you’ll note that the well-appointed gourmet galley features premium appliances that are integrated into the handcrafted, stone-finish bench top, varnished walnut cabinetry and joinery. These include Miele combination oven and microwave with grill, induction cooktop with potholders and rangehood, dishwasher, four refrigeration and two freezer drawers. There’s a large garbage bin for dry rubbish.

The large awning window opens out to the mezzanine from the central gourmet galley to position the galley right in the heart of the social and entertainment hub.

Stylish saloon

You will appreciate a refreshing sense of light and space in the saloon living space as you admire the views through the large forward windscreen or side windows that slide open to welcome in fresh air.

To port there’s a pantograph door that opens for quick and easy access to the port side deck, and forward there’s a premium standalone lounge and ottoman. To starboard is an L-shaped dinette with storage underneath, as well as a large table that folds at both ends on fixed pedestals, enabling it to slide forward and aft.

Complete comfort

Riviera’s Sports Motor Yacht design boasts fully flexible accommodation plans with your choice of three or four staterooms, including a full-beam master stateroom.

There are also options for a teenager’s retreat, crew quarters or dedicated sporting equipment stowage, depending on specific owner requirements.

The luxurious master stateroom, aft, extends the full beam, with a king-sized island bed amidships, complemented by a premium feature bedhead and handcrafted bedside tables with leather inlays.

The ambience of the master stateroom is accentuated by the natural light introduced through the large hull windows on either side of the stateroom, while fresh air is welcomed via an opening porthole that is alarmed to the ignition in the event it is left open.

Indulge in pure luxury

There’s even a safe for your valuables in one of two cedar-lined hanging lockers, which feature shoe shelves and full-length hanging space.

In the presidential design, the Sports Motor Yacht’s master ensuite, on the starboard side, is located forward, creating an even larger master stateroom with a writing bureau with a timber top, leatherette inlay and concealed make-up storage, power point, USB outlet, dinette-style seat and book storage.

Accommodating staterooms

The VIP guest stateroom – which has its own private ensuite – has fixed hull windows in tinted and tempered glass as well as a queen-sized walk-around bed with innerspring mattress, with handcrafted cabinetry throughout.

The portside stateroom – which with two-way entry has a bathroom that serves as an ensuite and the day head – has side-by-side single beds which, with the push of a button, will slide together to form a double bed. There is additional storage underneath the berths, as well as a hull window for natural light.

The starboard guest cabin – if the classic layout is selected – has adult-sized Pullman-style beds with quality mattresses as well as an opening porthole for fresh air.

All bathrooms on the accommodation deck are of a contemporary design with vanity cabinets and mirrors, solid surface bench tops, under-slung basins, opening portholes, large shower with frameless glass doors, soap dispensers and towel rails.

Futuristic flybridge

The Sports Motor Yacht’s futuristic flybridge is fully enclosed and can be accessed from the saloon via an internal staircase with polished walnut treads.

To starboard there is an L-shaped lounge that can convert to a double bed and an ottoman integrated with a coffee table. There is a chaise lounge forward and, aft, a large flybridge deck with optional tournament station, even more lounge seating and a wet bar.
