Australia's premium luxury motor yacht builder, Riviera, is proud to showcase the long-range and luxurious 68 Sports Motor Yacht at Salon Nautico, the Barcelona International Boat Show, in conjunction with representative Yachting Spain from October 10 to 14.

Yachting Spain Principal Dimitri Feytit De Haro said: "Our team is excited to bring this magnificent Sports Motor Yacht to the Salon Nautico show in the heart of Barcelona.

"Motor yacht enthusiasts in Spain are keen to combine fishing and cruising capabilities, so this new concept blue-water motor yacht is certain to appeal. She combines speed and sport fishing and other water sports opportunities with the exceptional comforts of multiple entertaining spaces, ultra-luxurious interiors including a fully enclosed flybridge and the confidence of high bulwarks on the side decks."

"The Riviera 68 Sports Motor Yacht is a brilliant example of Riviera's evolution and constant refinement."

The Riviera Sports Motor Yacht has been designed to offer the exhilaration of sports performance, sporting lines and a sporting cockpit with superior offshore and extended cruising capabilities.

Luxurious appointments combine with the comforts of a traditional motor yacht including wide side decks, a massive lounge area on the foredeck and covered mezzanine dining area.

The Sports Motor Yacht collection includes three models, the 68 and a 72 and the just released 39.

The cockpit of the 68 Sports Motor Yacht offers everything a sports fisher or water sports enthusiast could hope for, including a large boarding platform and twin transom doors as well as plenty of space for relaxing and entertaining. The elevated alfresco mezzanine forward of the cockpit includes a large dining area and is connected with the central U-shape gourmet galley through a stainless steel framed door and large awning window.

A port side door on the mezzanine leads down to a day head, shower and utility room or optional crew cabin with direct access to the engine room.

Stepping inside from the mezzanine past the fully-equipped U-shape galley, the saloon features a plush lounge to port and a dining area that can seat up to eight people to starboard. A large TV forward of the galley rises at the touch of a button and can be comfortably viewed from both lounge and dining areas.

An internal timber staircase provides direct access to the flybridge, with state-of-the-art helm station that features comprehensive engine and thruster controls, including the Twin Disc electronic joystick system (EJS), and up to four 22-inch navigation screens. Guests can relax on lounges across the entire starboard side facing the helm, skipper and an entertainment unit.

A stainless steel framed glass door and awning window connect the flybridge with a rear deck and alfresco dining area.

The accommodation deck offers two stateroom options: the four-cabin Classic or the three-cabin Grand Presidential design with full-beam master stateroom. The Classic accommodation layout offers a midships master stateroom with ensuite bathroom along the starboard side while the Grand Presidential design includes a full beam master stateroom with ensuite bathroom in the starboard forequarter. The VIP guest stateroom forward includes a walk-around queen-size bed and a private ensuite. A cabin on the port side forward of the master stateroom features twin single beds. The Classic layout includes an additional guest cabin on the starboard side with two full-size pullman-style beds.

The meticulous and full head height engine room includes acoustic and thermal insulation and eye-height engine systems monitors and remote controls.

Power for this spectacular motor yacht comes from twin MAN V12 1550 turbo diesel engines, delivering 1,550 hp (1,140 kW) each. Two other power options are offered - twin MAN V12 1800 or 1900 engines delivering 1,800 or 1,900 hp (1,324 or 1,397 kW).
