Australian yacht builder Riviera has announced that its 77 Enclosed Flybridge will make her debut at the upcoming Qatar International Boat Show. The event is scheduled to run from 10-14 November 2015.

The Riviera 77 Enclosed Flybridge is the largest model ever built by the company. The yacht on display at the show was built through collaboration between her owner, the Riviera team of designers, engineers and craftsmen, as well as the experienced team from SF Yachts, Riviera’s Middle East representative and dealer based in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

Commenting on the model, Riviera international sales director Chris McCafferty says: “The 77 Enclosed Flybridge features the perfect mix of fishing and cruising capabilities with ultra-modern marine technology, plush and palatial appointments and, indeed, all the comforts of a world-class luxury resort.”

McCafferty said two brand-new yachts in the blue-water 77 Flybridge series have now been shipped to their owners in the Middle East and a third is now in production in a section of the world-class Riviera facility at Coomera on Australia’s Gold Coast that is specifically dedicated to building this luxurious model.

“The new 77 Enclosed has a full range of premium options to complement her distinctive design,” says McCafferty. “Large forward windows offer panoramic 360-degree views from the luxurious saloon deck, while sweeping 10m x 0.5m safety glass feature panels are bonded to each side of her hull, providing a contemporary surface finish that visually link the stylish internal hull windows.”

The new 77 also offers 193.6 square-foot (17.99m2) cockpit, elegant 49.5 square-foot (22.59m2) mezzanine and four staterooms including full-beam master, along with four bathrooms and an optional, self-contained crew cabin.

The flybridge features a forward helm while an external rear tournament station “ensures clear cockpit observation when docking, or when the fishing action is underway,” notes McCafferty.

With an overall length of 81’2” (24.74m), a beam of 20’9” (6.32m) and featuring a fuel capacity of 2496 US gallons (9450L), the 77 Enclosed Flybridge is powered by twin MAN V12 shaft-drive engines (2 x 1900hp/1397kW) delivering a cruising range of 556 nautical miles at 26.4ks with 10% fuel reserve.

Riviera will also have details available in Doha of its entire range of 17 different models from 36ft to 77ft and spanning five distinctive model collections, catering to an extremely wide range of boating pursuits and individual styles.
