72 Sports Motor Yacht


Forever improving, refining, evolving … Since 1980, striving to excel, day in, day out, has been at the heart of the Riviera design experience. Rarely though has our passionate embrace of timeless aesthetics coincided so perfectly with our restless search for next level standards of structural strength and engineering virtuosity. Welcome to the luxury sports motor yacht collection which transcends everything you have ever dreamt of from long range, blue-water cruising.

Our new Riviera 72 Sports Motor Yacht is a stunning meld of sports looks, sports performance and sporting cockpit, renowned Riviera luxury appointments and superior offshore, extended cruising capability. All highlighted by their whisper quiet ride and super smooth running at speed. Painstakingly developed over a two-year period, they are set to redefine the class and your expectations.

In designing the hull, we partnered with esteemed naval architects, Mulder Design of the Netherlands, creators of three of the world’s fastest super yachts. After extensive international tank testing, the result is a hull design that delivers a smooth, soft and dry ride in a wide range of offshore conditions.

Conceived and built in-house to our exacting standards on Australia’s Gold Coast, this beautiful new series was inspired by a wish list from our global family of experienced Riviera owners seeking to strike out much further for far longer, to celebrate true long range luxury cruising the Riviera way, with loved ones and family.

A world away from the everyday, the most alluring ports and anchorages in either hemisphere are well within your reach. Onboard your Riviera Sports Motor Yacht, you will fall under an exotic spell, revelling in glorious sights, sounds and the absolute lap of luxury – exploring, diving, snorkelling, kayaking, fishing, creating and sharing truly memorable, precious moments – for just as long as your schedule allows or heart desires.
