Volvo Penta D8-IPS700 and 800 engines are designed to provide good fuel efficiency and high torque at low RPMs for motoryachts in the 45- to 55-foot range.

In addition to having the new Volvo Penta engines aboard, the Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht also is equipped with Volvo Penta’s Glass Cockpit and Electronic Vessel Control.
