The Riviera team has made very clever use of the interior space, again it is unique for a boat this size. It starts at the transom with the garage door with a smaller door set in to stow the fenders in brackets, and a barbecue hidden in another locker, and there is still room for a couple of huge lockers either side of the garage.The aft cockpit also features a rear bench seat and an Italian hydraulic table that drops down to form a sun lounge - that's all for the European market. The rear saloon window folds up to open the saloon right up and with the big sliding roof and the side windows SHE'S A QUIET LASS It's a very quiet boat too.

Idling along at 650rpm the sound level meter record a very low 64.6dB and that was with the back door and window open. At 1420rpm and 15 knots the boat was well up on the plane with a sound level of 75dB and jumped very quickly up to 2075rpm and 30 knots when asked.

At full song of 2364rpm the GPS showed 34.8 knots and the sound meter 81dB. Best cruising speed was around 23.5 knots where most people would generally drive the boat. At this speed the readings were a fuel flow of 140lt per hour, and a sound level of 75.5dB as the engine ticked over at 1750rpm. Much of the noise normally associated with a boat of this type has been reduced by the Halyard underwater exhaust system. Halyard is a British company that specializes in reducing noise and vibration in super yachts. This system is certain to fi nd its way into other Riviera models in the near future. open it gives true meaning to an outdoor living lifestyle. Or if you want to be nice and snug the whole lot closes up into an enclosed area, and with the air-con running it is very comfortable.

The big opening roof has proved popular on the 56 and sets the 4700 apart in the convertible market. Another big feature is the cockpit, galley and saloon all on the same level, that's if you don't count the 150mm step up from the cockpit to the saloon - a requirement under European CE rules. The finish on the cherry wood cabinetry is superb and has been applied by the new robotic varnishing shop Riviera has installed. In the past, the varnish shop has been a bottleneck in the production line.

The helm station is classy with a couple of very comfortable and stylish locally made Rae-Line seats built to Riviera specs. The driver's seat can be adjusted electrically and two individual footrests have been installed - one for when the driver is sitting up on the bolster and the other when sitting normally.

The big gains are in the accommodation. The steps down to the three-cabin, two-bathroom layout were easy to negotiate. This opens up the forward end of the boat considerably, and can be used as a separate getaway or a place where kids can play safely without getting under the feet of adults. The portside, two-bunk, cabin is an actual step down and the headroom is so high that there are very few people who would bang their heads on the cabin roof.

Riviera has cleverly used the void space under the helm station as a dedicated machinery room. All the connections and plumbing are in the one spot and easy to get at through a door in the cabin. Optional twin Caterpillar C12, 715hp diesels power the 4700 - C9 575hp diesels are standard. Owners who take a pride in keeping their engine rooms pristine will love the gelcoat finish - it will be so easy to keep clean. To balance the boat as fuel is used, the 2400lt fuel tank is mounted amidships in the hull and the 800lt water tank is under the saloon floor. 

The fuel tank also acts as a sound insulator to reduce machinery noise in the sleeping cabins.

Manufacturer Provided Description
Embarking on the development of an entirely new style of boat is one of the most challenging and exciting projects we've undertaken in recent times. The inspiration for our new style ' the Sport Yacht ' came from recognising the changing values and lifestyles of, not just boat owners, but people everywhere? changes reflected in such domains as contemporary architecture, interior design, and the styling of prestige cars. Although luxury is as desirable as ever, the trend globally is towards less formality. Such was the thinking behind the design of our first Sport Yacht, the 3600. We have taken all this one step further with a significantly larger and even more refined model: the Riviera 4700 Sport Yacht. It appears our thinking was correct ' enthusiasm for this Riviera 4700 Sport Yacht has exceeded all expectations. The clean lines, the bright, contemporary interior, the modern materials, the emphasis on easy entertaining, the solid feel and handling together with the spirited performance, are among the many qualities that made this one of our most successful new model launches.
