Riviera 465 SUV: Expanding the SUV Line

The Riviera 465 SUV is a new-for-2022 model that should appeal to cruisers, anglers and watersports enthusiasts alike. The boat brings Riviera’s SUV line to seven models, starting with the 395 and going up to the 645. The Australian builder worked with 4D Designs to create the 465 SUV, which has three staterooms, two heads and a covered outdoor deck that expands the living space in the salon. The hardtop overhang has a pair of electric sliding sunroofs for even more fresh air on board. The galley is aft and to starboard, with the helm immediately forward of it. Twin 12-inch Garmin Glass Cockpit displays and CZone digital switching are here, along with joystick control for the boat. Siren Marine remote monitoring is also available.

X30 Villa: Extra’s First Powercat

Extra Yachts is part of the Palumbo Superyachts family of brands, which also includes ISA Yachts, Columbus Yachts and Mondo Marine. The Extra brand, known for motoryachts, is now expanding into power catamarans with its first model of that type: the all-aluminum X30 Villa. Interior and exterior design are by the Dutch studio Phathom. The Extra X30 Villa is built with a hybrid propulsion system that reduces harmful emissions and allows for quiet electric-power cruising. Glass-impregnated solar panels are built in to help reduce the need for fuel use, and the interior is constructed with sustainable materials such as repurposed fibers, alternative leathers and reclaimed woods.

wallywind110: Carbon-Fiber Cruiser-Racer

Wally, long known for sailboats and original styling, has created a new wallywind range for owners who want to combine long-distance cruising with performance sailing. The first hull of the wallywind110, with naval architecture by judel/vrolijk & co, is scheduled to launch in May 2024. “The boat is ideal for an experienced sailor—maybe someone who has had boats in the 60- to 80-foot range and is now willing to make the jump to the 100-foot size range to get the extra comforts,” says Wally Managing Director Stefano de Vivo. Owners can choose among three keel types: fixed, telescopic or high-tech lifting. Features include Wally’s underwater anchoring system and Magic Trim hydraulic system for the main and jib sheets.

CRN Ciao: A Custom Aluminum Design

CRN, part of Ferretti Group in Italy, delivered the superyacht Ciao in July. Made entirely of aluminum, the custom build was created in collaboration with Omega Architects, which conceived the external lines, and Massari Design, which was responsible for the outdoor guest areas and interiors. Ciao has four decks and accommodates 10 guests in five staterooms, including a main-deck master. The near-vertical bow gives the yacht a sporty look, while full-height tinted glazing on the main and upper decks provides guests with uninterrupted views of the sea. Ciao has alfresco dining on the upper deck and versatile lounge areas for guest relaxation on the sun deck and main deck.

Sirena Yachts debuted its latest motoryacht—the Sirena 78—at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September. The yacht has a semidisplacement hull form from German Frers with an interior design by Cor D. Rover. Owners can choose an open, a semi-enclosed or a fully enclosed flybridge setup. Belowdecks are four staterooms, all with en suite heads, including a full-beam master amidships, a forepeak VIP as well as twin guest staterooms. There are three twin-diesel-engine options from MAN, ranging in horsepower from 1,400 to 1,800. Depending on engine selection, the Sirena 78’s top speed runs from 23 to 27 knots. Cruising speed: 16 knots. At 10 knots, the builder reports a maximum range of 1,480 nautical miles.
