4400 Riviera Sport Yacht
WINNER – 2008 Australian Manufactured Boat Of The Year
WINNER – 2008 Cruiser of the Year (non-trailerable – over 10m category)
Two-Family Accommodation- The 4400 boasts two large cabins. The queen-size master stateroom is in the bow and, thanks to the space savings of Volvo IPS, aft and under the cabin sole you will find a magnificent full-width stateroom with a queen and a single berth.
Salubrious Saloon- Spacious and light, this area is an entertainer's delight − electrically operated sunroof, leather lounge, adjustable-height table, good storage, liquor cabinet, 26” LCD TV. The piece-de-resistance is surely the unobtrusive helm.
Gastronomic Galley- Here, you will have all the equipment, cupboard and bench space here to cook up a veritable feast. Special features include the microwave oven, 2-burner stove, refrigerator and pull-out pantry.
Pillarless Pleasure- Aside from the IPS, the next most dramatic feature is the huge, stainless steel framed window and pillar-less door between the cockpit and saloon – lift up and the two areas become one.
Flamboyant Cockpit- The cockpit boasts opulent features such as generous lounge and table, a full wet bar with sink, solid surface bench-top, stainless steel refrigerator, optional ice maker, enormous transom storage locker, and equally grandiose rise and fall (optional) swim platform.
Volvo IPS- Revolutionary new technology, Volvo Inboard Performance System (IPS) steerable drive units are mounted aft under the hull, with counter rotating forward facing propellers that pull rather than push. The result is a remarkably tight turning circle and superb handling with docking and other delicate manoeuvres almost effortless thanks to an intuitive joystick.
Startling Performance- The twin 370hp or optional 435hp diesels literally catapult the 4400 up onto the plane. Look forward to a thrilling ride – racy, responsive, yet smooth. Enjoy 30% less fuel usage than shaft drive.
Impeccable Structural Integrity- Designed using the latest CAD software and constructed using the most up-to-date infusion moulding technology, the hull is divided into three sections, including a collision bulkhead forward.
In Full Detail
Radical Thinking for Unrivaled Pleasure
In our long history we have produced many new vessels, but none has challenged traditions or questioned the assumptions on which boats are generally built quite like our Sport Yacht series.
This is especially true of the Riviera 4400, a boat rich in innovations – some quite radical.
The story starts with the revolutionary Volvo Penta Inboard Performance System (IPS), a technology that features steerable drive units mounted under the hull with counter-rotating, forward-facing propellers. Rather than ‘pushing’ the boat along as with conventional propulsion, the boat is literally ‘pulled’ forward through the water.
The result is superb handling, a remarkably tight turning circle and, thanks to an intuitive joystick, docking control and other close-quarters manoeuvres are delightfully easy. What’s more, IPS uses up to 30% less fuel than conventional drive systems.
With the standard diesel horsepower ratings available, you can also look forward to a thrilling ride: racy, responsive, yet soft and dry.
The hull is equally noteworthy. Not only is it designed using the latest CAD software, which contributes to the outstanding hydrodynamics of the hull, it has been constructed using the most up-to-date infusion-moulding technology.
Compared with traditional open lay-up of fibreglass and resin, this infusion system produces more uniform thickness, reduced weight and greater strength. The hull is also divided into three sections, including a collision bulkhead forward.
Given the contemporary styling, sumptuous comfort and long list of luxuries that are to be found on board the 4400, you will no doubt be tempted to cruise far from the madding crowd – and with a 1,500 litre fuel tank, it is certainly equipped to help you do just that. However, it is knowing that this a vessel with impeccable structural integrity, a vessel that can handle the vicissitudes of life at sea, that makes it possible to sit back and truly relax.
And relax you will, because at Riviera we are passionate about putting more pleasure into your pleasure boating. As you are about to discover, that commitment is expressed in a myriad of ingenious ways.
Bold Designs and Impressive Details
Clear skies, blue water, fine food, family and friends gathered together… it’s an idyllic scenario. But the picture looks even better if you are aboard the Riviera 4400 because of the way we anticipate your needs and cater to your comfort.
The most dramatic and pleasing feature is the huge, stainless-steel framed window and pillarless door between the cockpit and saloon. Once open, the easy flow between the two areas not only creates a refreshing, relaxed ambience, but is also immensely practical.
In the cockpit you can stretch out on a generous lounge and take advantage of a table that adjusts (gas assisted) to serve as a dining table, coffee table or day bed. For your refreshment, there’s a full wet bar with sink, solid-surface benchtop, stainless-steel refrigerator and optional ice maker.
Fenders or other bulky equipment can be neatly stowed away in the enormous storage locker in the rear of the transom. The swim platform has also been thoughtfully designed with its concealed swim ladder and, if you have a tender, can be fitted with an optional hydraulic lift.
Even access to the engines has been carefully considered. There’s a small opening in the forward area of the cockpit for general inspections and a large section of the cockpit floor can be raised – using a remote-activated electric control – for full engine-room access.
For our designers, details make all the difference and they are forever asking how they can make life on board as smooth and pleasurable as possible. Take the sun pad on the foredeck: it has safety rails and drink holders, it comes with a cover, is self-draining and has a wind deflector incorporated at the front edge to prevent lifting in a breeze or when cruising at speed. Access to the foredeck is also that much safer and easier by virtue of wide walk-around side decks with courtesy lights on the steps either side of the cockpit.
This is just one example of an approach often commented upon, and that is 'a lot goes into a little on a Riviera’.
Easy Living, Riviera Style
In the saloon, the sense of space and light created by opening the cockpit door and window is enhanced by a huge, electrically operated sunroof and large, tinted, side sliding windows. Combined with contemporary fittings and finishes – such as Amtico flooring and high-gloss American Cherry timberwork – you have a stylish, ultra-modern interior.
A well-equipped interior it is too. There’s a deep leather lounge, adjustable high/low table, plenty of storage, a liquor cabinet, a first class entertainment centre including a 26” LCD TV… and a galley with all the equipment, cupboard and bench space you need to cook up a veritable feast.
The layout of the helm, the visibility of the instrumentation and the view afforded by the massive windscreen (complete with freshwater washers and pantograph wipers) inspires confidence. And all from the comfort of a high-backed, electrically adjustable, leather-upholstered helm chair.
Below decks you will find a companionway with a full-height pantry or linen cupboard and room for optional appliances. Then there’s the full-width aft stateroom: due to the space savings of the IPS drive system, this is a surprisingly large guest cabin that easily accommodates a single berth and queen bed together with ample wardrobe space.
With dual entry, the bathroom serves as both an en suite and for general day use. Like the en suite off the master stateroom, this is a thoroughly modern space with frameless shower-stall door, glass basin and high-quality tapware.
The master stateroom itself is most luxurious. From the comfort of the queen island bed with its inner-spring mattress to the cedar-lined lockers and large deck hatch, this is a cabin that caters to the most discriminating boat owner.
Riviera owners are typically experienced boat owners with high expectations: with this Sport Yacht we believe we have never gone further in exceeding those expectations… and we look forward to your inspection.
