Riviera’s 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition will make its U.S. debut at the 2022 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The Australia-based company is known for building bluewater-capable boats, and, to that end, the 4600 Platinum Edition has a solid, hand-laid fiberglass hull and foam core for strength and noise-dampening. Additionally, there is a watertight collision bulkhead forward.

Entertainment at sea is also a focal point, and this express cruiser has a 79.5-square-foot cockpit accessed via two starboard-side steps. There is an L-shaped settee with a triangular dinette in the portside corner, and, to starboard, there is a grill and a sink. An additional step up on either side deck leads to the bow with an 83-inch-by-99-inch sun pad for catching rays on the hook.

A sliding glass door from the cockpit leads to the salon with a galley aft to port. The aft-facing countertop is accessible via the cockpit, too, as there is a window that opens upward and outward on a strut. The galley also has a two-burner stove, a microwave oven and a stainless-steel sink. To starboard is a nearly 40-gallon fridge, a 13-gallon freezer and a liquor cabinet. 

If the weather doesn’t allow for alfresco living, guests can enjoy their coffee at the starboard-side wooden table and accompanying U-shaped settee for up to six that are forward and one step up. This dining space is also accompanied by an electrically lifted 43-inch TV that’s built into the dash and forward of the seating. There is 6-foot-11-inch headroom in the salon.

To port and on the same level as the dining table, there are twin leather and Alcantara sports seats with a tilt-adjustable sports steering wheel, joystick control and twin Garmin Glass Cockpit screens.

Twin 480 hp Volvo Penta D6-IPS650s with IPS10 drives are standard power for the 4600 Platinum Edition, and there is an option for twin 600 hp Volvo Penta D8-IPS800s with IPS15 drives. At press time, performance information was not available.

Owners have options belowdecks with either a two- or three-stateroom layout. If they choose the two-stateroom setup, the centerline stairs lead below to a portside lounge with an L-shaped settee. 

Forward is the forepeak VIP with a step-up berth, and the en suite head abaft and to starboard also functions as the day head. There is a full-beam master stateroom with an en suite head amidships. It has a step-up, queen-sized berth on centerline, a portside lounge and dressers to starboard. Hull-side windows flanking the room measure 71 inches by 21 inches and provide natural light.

The three-stateroom arrangement replaces the portside lounge with a Pullman berth-equipped stateroom. A washer-dryer can be added here, too. Headroom throughout belowdecks ranges from 6 feet, 4 inches to 6 feet, 7 inches.

What does the Platinum Edition of the Riviera 4600 Sport Yacht entail? Riviera says the Platinum Edition includes luxury appointments like premium fabrics, high-gloss walnut timber cabinetry, in-vogue lounges and carpet in the staterooms.
