Australia's premium luxury motor yacht builder, Riviera, will proudly present the World Premiere of its much anticipated flagship Belize 66 and the Americas Premieres of the Riviera 72 Sports Motor Yacht, the 39 Sports Motor Yacht and the sporty and adventurous 395 SUV at the opening of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in the United States on October 31.

The spectacular new Belize will be the centerpiece of a nine-model red-carpet showcase that also includes the sophisticated 6000, 5400 and 4800 Sport Yachts, a blue-water Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge model and the classic Belize 54 daybridge model.

World Premiere Belize 66 - on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

The Belize 66 builds on the heritage, first unveiled in 2011, of a luxury motor yacht that evokes the styles of a bygone era of yachting, of gleaming hand-crafted interiors and, most importantly, of individuality.

Riviera CEO Wes Moxey said: "We have been able to include a wide range of options as standard in the Belize 66, beginning with the overall layout of a single-level lifestyle sedan or a daybridge with classic bimini top or hardtop."

A swim platform is submersible to assist in launching and retrieving the tender from the garage and the large cockpit features a dinette and L-shape seating in the starboard fore quarter, a comprehensive barbecue unit and a second lounge. A massive forward sundeck offers a large sunken U-shape lounge and a central dinette table.

A large awning window links the outdoor space with the galley while a sliding glass door provides entry to the salon. The large U-shape gourmet galley is aft and the dinette is forward to starboard with a free-standing lounge or armchair opposite.

A water-tight pantograph side door opposite the dinette provides immediate access to the port deck.

The lower helm area offers a range of options; a minimalist single-seat layout to starboard or a more expansive central location with companion seating.

The accommodation deck offers many layout options: three or four staterooms including a midships Master, and three bathrooms. A space aft of the master stateroom can be fitted out as full beam bathroom, a massive walk-in wardrobe, a utility room, workshop or a crew cabin.

Power for the new Belize 66 comes from the proven Volvo Penta 1350 IPS3 pod drive system, with Volvo Penta's Station Hold and joystick control for fingertip maneuverability.

The systems, drives, engines and electronics on all Volvo Penta-powered Riviera motor yachts are covered by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty to complement Riviera's structural five-year limited warranty.

Americas Premiere Riviera 39 Sports Motor Yacht - on display

The latest model in Riviera's outstanding Sports Motor Yacht collection, the 39, offers a sophisticated new hull and deck design and multiple entertainment spaces that are emblematic of Riviera Sports Motor Yachts.

The cockpit is an open space for entertaining and water sports with a teak table and lounge set under the awning window to port offering alfresco dining. A stair-ladder on the starboard side of the cockpit connects with the extended flybridge with a forward helm and an L-shape lounge aft.

Contemporary styling throughout the 39 Sports Motor Yacht is evident in the fully-equipped aft galley on the starboard side and dining area opposite. A standard lower helm is forward to port with a lounge opposite. The accommodation deck provides sleeping for five adults in two staterooms and a fully equipped bathroom.

Power for the new Riviera 39 Sports Motor Yacht comes from twin Volvo Penta D6-IPS600 system with twin diesel engines (2 x 320kW/435hp), IPS pod-drives and joystick control.

Americas Premiere Riviera 395 SUV - on display

The sporty and adventurous Riviera 395 SUV displays a contemporary elegance, from her entirely new hull and deck design with feature hull windows to European-inspired fabrics and cabinetry throughout.

Her open cockpit is perfectly designed for relaxing and entertaining or for a raft of water sports. A lounge and table in the forward port quarter invite alfresco dining.

This new model offers two generous staterooms and a large bathroom on the accommodation deck, a spacious saloon with fully-equipped aft galley to starboard and a dinette opposite, a forward helm to port and a guest viewing lounge in the starboard forward quarter.

Power for the 395 SUV comes from twin Volvo Penta D6 IPS 500 turbo diesel engines providing 272kw (370hp) of power with IPS pod drive units with joystick control.

Americas Premiere 72 Sports Motor Yacht - on display

The long-range and luxurious Riviera 72 Sports Motor Yacht delivers spirited performance and super-smooth running at speed.

This new Sports Motor Yacht offers a large open cockpit, perfect for entertaining or water sports, high bulwarks with wide side decks, a foredeck entertainment centre and a covered mezzanine dining area. A door on the port side of the mezzanine leads to a staircase down to the day head and shower. Adjacent to the day head is a utility room or optional crew cabin with direct access to the engine room.

The fully enclosed flybridge with a forward helm, guest lounge and an alfresco dining area aft is accessed by internal stairs.

The large aft U-shaped galley is designed to cater for the chef's every requirement while a plushly carpeted saloon features a large lounge to port and, to starboard, a leather dinette that seats up to eight people.

Accommodation options include Grand Presidential or Classic layouts with three or four staterooms and three bathrooms.

Power for the Riviera 72 Sports Motor Yacht is provided by twin MAN V12 turbo diesel 1800 or 1900 engines, providing 1,324kW (1,800hp) or 1,397kW (1,900hp).
