Another Euro-style feature is on deck, where a sun pad on the bow has enough room for two — or more, depending on how good of friends you are, I suppose. Some Riviera folks tout that sun pad as one of the boat’s top selling points, which makes sense based on anecdotal evidence I heard from a potential buyer. He mentioned that the younger generation of upper-crust Australians seems to be shifting from the club-and-lounge scene to a more outdoor-centric partying philosophy. The trend is not to wile away the night in a booming disco surrounded by the madding crowd, but instead to grab some close friends and beverages, then fire up the boat and go find a secluded cove. If that sounds more European than Australian to you, maybe just give it a few years.
