World premiere the Riviera 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition – innovation and style
In a proudly Australian world premiere today, an enormous multi-panel Riviera emblem was rotated to reveal the Australian flag as 50 Riviera team members welcomed the newest Riviera model, the 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition at the company’s Gold Coast facility.

The new 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition from Australia’s premium luxury boat builder, Riviera, is an outstanding example of innovation, luxury and inspiring spaces.
