The majestic Riviera 77 Enclosed Flybridge yacht is set to make her official Qatar debut at the 3rd annual Qatar International Boat Show, running in the fabulous Middle East yacht holiday location – Qatar from November 10 to 14, 2015. Motor yacht 77 Enclosed Flybridge is a long-range offshore vessel, representing the largest, most luxurious and most technologically advanced Riviera ever built.
Riviera international sales director, Chris McCafferty, said: “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.”
Mr McCafferty added that two all-new yachts in the blue-water 77 Flybridge series have now been shipped to their owners in the Middle East and a third is currently under construction at the shipyard’s 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. 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,” Mr McCafferty said. “Stepping aboard, the new 77 also offers an expansive 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 state-of-the-art flybridge features a forward helm while an external rear tournament station ensures clear cockpit observation when docking, or when the fishing action is underway.”
Riviera 77 Enclosed yacht to be showcased in Doha features a massive and lavish sun pad and casual dining/sitting area on the foredeck. There is also upgraded air-conditioning throughout to cater to the extremely high temperatures in the Middle East, where the mercury can rise above 50 degrees Celsius (126 degrees Fahrenheit), and is regularly above 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit).
“Riviera’s 77 Enclosed Flybridge includes 32,000 BTU’s of air-conditioning to the fully-cleared mezzanine deck, 60,000 BTU’s to the main saloon and another 60,000 BTU’s to the flybridge, in addition to increases across all accommodation deck cooling systems, including the fully-equipped two-berth crew quarters,” said SF Yachts dealer principal Francesco Pitea. “Middle East owners also appreciate the fact that exposed structural areas – including the new sports-styled targa that has been colour-matched to her hull and air-intakes in Bentley Silverlake blue – have also undergone additional heat-curing treatments so they can withstand our harsh climactic conditions.”
The owner of the luxury yacht 77 Enclosed Bridge to be showcased at the event also requested double transom doors leading from her one-tonne capacity hydraulic swim platform, as well as wide marlin board in order to enhance her versatility.
“The designated length of this exciting new model is based on the official hull length of 77 feet however, the stylish and sophisticated Life Serenity measures over 81 feet from bow sprit to board platform,” added Mr Pitea. “She will certainly stand out in the sea of yachts at the Qatar International Boat Show.”
Boasting 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 Riviera 77 Enclosed Flybridge yacht is run by twin MAN V12 shaft-drive engines (2 x 1900hp/1397kW). She is able to achieve a cruising range of 556 nautical miles at 26,4 knots, with 10 per cent fuel reserve.
