Brilliant, beautiful and bespoke, the Belize 66 Daybridge by Riviera Yachts will have her World Premiere at the 2019 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), October 30 - November 3.
In total, the premium motor yacht builder will showcase 12 models, including the premiere of three new Platinum Edition Riviera Sport Yachts, making this the largest ever display in the Americas for Riviera Yachts.
The unveiling of the new 4800 Sport Yacht Series II-Platinum Edition, 5400 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition, 6000 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition, along with the introduction of the new 545 SUV, will be a major highlight at the Riviera display.
“Visitors to Fort Lauderdale will be very impressed this year,” said Riviera Australia owner Rodney Longhurst. “The display is not only our largest, it will comprehensively highlight the ongoing advancement of our model development, while also showcasing our latest styling.”
SYS Yacht Sales’ Riviera specialists, Jason Mashke and Alex Rowe, are privileged to represent this renowned Australian line on the Gulf Coast of Florida. “Riviera and Belize yachts exemplify the impeccable taste of true yachting enthusiasts. Each model incorporates designs that are not only elegant, but also practical and stand the test of time. Gimmicks in the yacht industry come and go and often do not add value to a particular yacht. This isn’t the case with with Riviera and Belize. These vessels are built for adventure with superb quality in both construction and in their luxurious appointments,” said Jason.
“They also include an extended range, compared to other competitive models, along with practicality, ease of use, and true enjoyment away from the dock. Many can design a yacht that looks beautiful, but only a few can design a yacht that has it all! I relish the opportunity to represent Riviera and Belize on the Gulf Coast of Florida, as it is an honor to work with a level of quality beyond compare, “ he added.
The Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht Series II-Platinum Edition is a masterpiece in every sense. From the aesthetics styling to it’s uncompromising functionality, this yacht embodies the essence of the new Platinum Edition.
The twin Volvo Penta Inboard Propulsion Systems provides more than ample power with a quiet and peaceful delivery. The new silver and black helm features plush Recaro helm chairs and smart new instrumentation. Another new feature of this model is the extended swim platform that is a gateway to a generous garage. Other new and remarkable features include a fully equipped cockpit wet bar and twin electric opening sunroofs (individually operated).

The accommodation deck has increased floor space in the forward master stateroom, which contains a king-size walk-around berth and lots of storage space. Hull windows on either side of the bed bathe the room in natural light and offer outside views. The spaciousness and manageability of this yacht make it perfect for cruising couples and young families.
The Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition is acclaimed as an ‘exciting single-level entertainer’ because of its intelligent and progressive design, that includes the keel-to-wheel integration of its twin Volvo Penta Inboard Propulsion Systems.
This yacht is a true luxury sport package. Her sleek lines, sporty new color palette, and superyacht-like radar yield an ultimate level of driving pleasure.
This new edition offers an on-water relaxation experience, starting with aft facing seating under the awning, that is ideal for al fresco dining.

“There’s an exuberance about this yacht, a sparkle and presence that reflects her star quality. The 6000 is a world-class performer with a global vision and purpose” according to owner/builder Rodney Longhurst.
The salon hardtop, which is illuminated by glass skylights, has been extended and integrated with an electric sunroof. The sunroof slides beneath the radar arch, and forward the side-opening windows, to create a seamless indoor/outdoor world. Accommodations are designed for buyer preferences, but include the option of an impressively palatial “Presidential” master suite. The list of magnificent refinements for this Platinum Edition Sport Yacht goes on and on throughout the vessel.
Befitting of a flagship, the Riviera 6000 exudes elegance in shimmering tones of silver grey, black and white with Platinum refinements, immense spaciousness, and smooth power beyond compare.
The culmination of Riviera’s spectacular presence at FLIBS will be the world premiere of the Belize 66 Daybridge.

Outdoor entertaining spaces abound and offer a sun lovers haven along with a choice of a beautiful fabric Bimini top. The accommodation deck offers a choice between a three or four stateroom design, all with luxury bathrooms.
The main driving station in the Daybridge boasts two 22-inch navigation screens as well as a 17” screen in an all Garmin Glass Cockpit integrated with the Volvo Penta Systems.
