Riviera M400 Sport Cruiser Platinum 2006 - $240,000 Neg.

The word 'magnificent' comes to mind when stepping on board 'Melubella'.

To say that she is beautifully presented would be an understatement. Just fully detailed (August 2014) inside and out few faults if any can be found that could differentiate her from a brand new boat. Purchased new and fitted out with too many options to count she has bee the pride and joy of her very discerning owner, whose experience with boat drove him to not only chose this boat but also to carefully select the upgrades, including spending an extra $80K on twin Volvo Penta D6 diesel as opposed to their petrol Mercruiser counterparts. The luxury fit-out includes air conditioning, teak laid cockpit floor, digital flat screen TV with decoder and aerial that can be mounted in the inside lounge or in cockpit, Sunbrella upholstery in sand color, sun pad for deck, full weather covers and rear awning with two solid stainless steel poles (colors matching cockpit canvas), upgraded soft furnishing, smart fuel computer, ice maker, fridge and freezer in cockpit and fridge/freezer in galley, Corian bench tops with sink and stove covers for flush lines, folding cockpit table in solid teak and stainless steel (the table lowers to transforms into a sun lounge), 7 kva Onan diesel generator, opening skylights in cockpit... Plus much, much more!


Designed purely around the Australian's luxury yacht demands the Riviera M400 is a sleek, beautifully crafted yacht, conceived and built by Riviera using ultra modern building techniques combined with master craftsman's skills (hand laid glass hull, cabinetry, etc. ) and top quality material. All stainless steel fittings are of 316 marine grade, which will not rust or corrode and which can easily be kept in perfect condition. An abundance of solid blond teak outdoors and satin beech timber inside the cabin provides a modern, clean look with plenty of light and an impression of space from guest cabin to galley and the beautifully partitioned master cabin.


An entertainer's dream, the M400 boast sweeping lounges and huge cockpit table which can comfortably sit 9, separate lounge area, extended aft platform with hidden swim ladder and snap-davits for your dinghy. The helm area is sure to please the most discerning boat captains, with perfect visibility all around, sitting for two, all instrumentation and controls on dashboard, remote control spotlight and space beneath the sit to hide a large ice-box (provided), which will solve the problems of having to find space for it in the cockpit.

Two removable stainless steel poles are use to setup the large sun awning over the aft cockpit.


Below is a large L shape lounge in fine cream leather with an ottoman which top can be reversed to make a coffee table. Sliding glass doors can be pushed back to create a large open-plan cabin or closed for privacy.

For storage there are hanging lockers, draws and assorted compartments in each cabin, with a hydraulic lifting system to access a huge storage area below the master bed.

The guest cabin is situated aft, with a single bed along to starboard and a large double athwart-ships. The headroom is surprisingly good when compared to the configuration of other similar cruisers.


The head/shower area is a dream, with a circular shower screen on slides for easy access, earthenware sink, large mirror, vanity, lockers and an electric toilet with holding tank.


Powered by twin Volvo D6 350HP 'Melubella' will move effortlessly through the water, with planning at around 14 knots and achieve a top speed of around 35 knots with the help of the trim tabs. A comfortable cruising speed is of about 22 knots. Her fuel computer will keep you informed on you average fuel consumption, engine hours, rpms, etc.


A 2.5m inflatable dinghy with oars is included in the sale. The dinghy is in very good condition, always kept out of the sun in the owner's boatshed. When under way the dinghy can be clipped on to the snap-davits on the aft rail of the swim platform.
