Australia’s largest luxury motor yacht builder Riviera has delivered its hundredth 5400 Sport Yacht to a new owner in New Zealand.

Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst describes the milestone as a very proud moment for the entire Riviera team.

“While the launching of this yacht honours the continued refinements made by our team, to have built 100 of the 5400 ­– and more than 100 of the 6000 Sport Yacht – affirms their global popularity and our dedication to creating world-class luxury motor yachts.”

Number 100 of the Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition has been delivered to a new owner in New Zealand by dealer representative R Marine Flagship in Auckland. It is the new owner’s second Riviera, replacing a Riviera 4000 Offshore he owned for 14 years.

He describes the 5400 Sport Yacht as ideal for his love of cruising with friends and family, and sometimes escaping on his own. Although a significant step up in size, the 5400 Sport Yacht is a breeze for solo cruising, thanks to the technology onboard, which includes Volvo Penta IPS (Integrated Propulsion System) joystick controls.

The Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht boasts impressive fuel efficiency and exhilarating 34-knot-plus performance from twin Volvo Penta D11 IPS 950 turbo diesel engines. Accommodation comprises either a three-stateroom and two-bathroom layout or an optional two-stateroom layout with lower lounge area.


As with all Riviera motor yachts, the 5400’s systems, drives, engines and electronics are covered by an industry-leading five-year Volvo Penta limited warranty, complementing Riviera’s structural seven-year limited warranty.
