Act now to seize this exclusive opportunity to become the owner of this 2023 Riviera 78 Motor Yacht--an emblem of unrivalled luxury and prestige. This chance allows you to bypass the usual wait time, as current owners are upgrading to a larger vessel. Crafted by the renowned Riviera design group in collaboration with superyacht designer Luca Vallebona, this yacht stands as a groundbreaking addition to the distinguished Riviera fleet.

The 78 Motor Yacht is not merely a vessel; it's a testament to opulence, offering more space, more luxury, and embodying the quintessential attributes of Riviera: uncompromising quality, unwavering strength, and top-tier blue-water performance. The Riviera 78 is an ocean capable luxury motor yacht yourself, equally at ease entertaining off Sydney Harbour, cruising its waters, or providing a serene retreat for family holidays on the Great Barrier Reef.

Your first step onboard is onto the draw dropping Teak-laid Hydraulic swim platform. Engineered with a three-step configuration spanning the platform's full width, it can gracefully descend into the water, offering effortless access for both swimming and launching water sports equipment. Adding to the functionality, a discreet swim ladder is seamlessly incorporated into the side of the platform.

Ascending from the inviting swim platform, you'll find yourself on the semi-enclosed saloon deck--a sanctuary covered entirely by the overhang of the bridge deck. Adorned with teak decking, this space is a haven of comfort. Plush lounges grace the transom, accompanied by an L-shape lounge in the starboard fore quarter, encircling a fold-out teak dining table and a fully equipped barbecue centre to port. For added elegance, Riviera teak deck chairs can be seamlessly added around the dining table, accommodating up to eight guests. Privacy and weather protection are at your fingertips with a lowering screen across the transom.
This deck boasts wing doors on either side of the coaming, offering seamless entry or exit to a fixed dock. As anticipation builds, an electric sliding door majestically opens, unveiling the interior of the expansive saloon deck. Here, a large U-shape galley awaits immediately to starboard, thoughtfully positioned to cater to guests on both the aft deck and within the saloon. A touch of innovation comes alive as a large window slides down electrically, connecting the galley seamlessly to guests on the deck aft, creating a harmonious flow of space and hospitality.

Indulge in culinary luxury within the galley, where Caesarstone benchtops stand-out, a three-burner induction hob and twin underslung stainless-steel sinks. This space is a culinary haven, equipped with twin Miele ovens, a dishwasher, and a pair of full-height refrigerators, all seamlessly integrated with ample storage in drawers and cupboards. The opulence extends to the saloon and bridge wet bars, where the rich aesthetics of Caesarstone continue to elevate the experience.
Immerse yourself in the interior adorned with superbly varnished, finely grain-matched high-gloss teak--a carefully chosen element that permeates every corner of this exquisite yacht. The deliberate selection of teak contributes to an ambiance of timeless elegance.
A defining feature of the 78 Motor Yacht is its commitment to flush surfaces throughout the interior, exemplified by concealed latches on drawers and cupboards. Delicate panelling graces the fridge and icemaker doors, seamlessly blending with the yacht's interior decor. The commitment to quality extends further with the extensive use of premium fabrics and finishes, creating an atmosphere of refined luxury.

Step into the generous saloon space, where two premium comfort lounges beckon--a large L-shape lounge to starboard and a two-seat lounge along the port side, strategically positioned aft of a comprehensive wet bar. An exquisite touch is added with an ottoman gracing the centre of this space, placed over an elegant rug, creating a harmonious blend of comfort and sophistication.

Embark on a seamless transition from the saloon's starboard side through a watertight door, gracefully leading to the side deck and, subsequently, to the captivating entertainer's foredeck. This versatile space unfolds with a myriad of entertaining layouts, complemented by a Euro sun awning--a chic touch with the added flexibility to carry a tender or jet ski, promising endless possibilities for leisure and relaxation.

An internal timber staircase leads from the port side of the main saloon to the bridge deck --a realm reminiscent of super-yachts, featuring a dash akin to a technological masterpiece accommodating four expansive navigation screens. At the heart of this technological marvel is the leather captain's chair, strategically placed on the yacht's centreline, flanked by companion chairs on either side. To starboard, an extended console boasting engine controls adds to the functionality.
Aft of the captain's station, an inviting leather lounge and ottoman, coupled with an entertainment unit, create a sanctuary of comfort. The magic unfolds as an electrically operated double sliding and stacking glass door elegantly opens, seamlessly connecting the bridge's interior and exterior. Step onto the deck, where a bar takes centre stage, complete with twin high seats, a U-shaped lounge, and a teak fold-out dining table--an epitome of sophistication and conviviality. Adding convenience to luxury, the day head is nestled in the starboard forward quarter of this space.
Noteworthy on this deck are port and starboard joysticks, thoughtfully incorporated for slow-speed manoeuvring--a testament to the meticulous design that prioritizes both functionality and pleasure in every maritime journey.

Descend through an elegant, curved timber staircase positioned at the forward end of the main saloon, leading to the accommodation deck--a sanctuary boasting four luxurious staterooms and three bathrooms. The full-beam Master suite, nestled amidships, is a haven of natural light pouring through extended hull windows. Revel in opulence with an electrically adjustable king-size bed and an extended his-and-hers en-suite bathroom. A striking timber feature adorns the aft wall, adding an extra layer of sophistication to this private retreat.
The VIP guest stateroom, a masterpiece in its own right, features a queen double bed, hull windows, and twin overhead hatches. Located forward with its en-suite bathroom, it offers a perfect blend of comfort and aesthetics. The port stateroom invites flexibility with twin beds that seamlessly slide together to form a double at the touch of a button. This stateroom's en-suite bathroom serves as a third bathroom, doubling as a convenient day head. Completing the quartet is the starboard stateroom, boasting two adult single cross-over berths--a harmonious blend of practicality and comfort.
