Riviera Sports 4400: A Close Look

The Riviera team can always be counted upon for nothing short of superb and the 4400SY model turned out to be a pioneering success within the Riviera line of boats.

In fact, it was also the first boat within the Riviera line of boats, and in the world, to be built for and powered by the Volvo Penta’s Inboard Performance System.

This use of Volvo Penta’s IPS piqued the interest of many industry experts as it is superior to other systems.

The system generates lower CO2 emissions, consumes significantly less fuel (about 30%) and has a lower noise level, all of which are highly desirable traits. It also has safe and predictable handling, and a superior advantage in maneuverability.

The IPS engines are positioned well behind on the boat to provide more space in the engine room.

Since the Riviera 4400 was specifically built for the Volvo Penta IPS, it does not require modifications to the hull to accommodate the pods, unlike other boats.

This itself is a huge improvement from the Riviera 3600 and it is no wonder that industry experts were eager to find out what boating would be like on the Riviera 4400.

The Riviera 4400 Sports boat for sale has had its lines re-jigged to give it more visual appeal.

The bonded windows on each hull side are thus a clear standout feature of this magnificent piece of workmanship from Riviera.

This unique layout provides enough space for a double bed and a single bed in the same cabin.  This is a great feature that will no doubt delight the whole family.

The main saloon is very roomy, with a lounge on one side.

The starboard side has a galley with a well-appointed two-seat helm station.

There is a machinery room which houses the water heater. The plumbing manifold is easily accessible from the second cabin as well.

The companionway was designed to successfully house a washer dryer, however on this boat, this has been replaced with a freezer for cold storage and ice, which is very useful for day trips and overnight.

There is ample room directly above it which is usable as a pantry or storage space for bedsheets and blankets.

Key Features you will like about the Riviera 4400

There is a lot that will interest you about this Riviera boat for sale.

For starters, the large hydraulic swim platform with easy access to the BBQ which is positioned on the port side.

There’s also a spacious storage unit for snorkeling equipment, fenders or cleaning gear.

The hydraulic swim platform makes easy work of launching and retrieving your tender.

It also allows for a double up of guests due to the easy flow of people from the galley, saloon, cockpit and swim platform, making the most of the indoor-outdoor flow of this special boat.

This is all combined with the entertainment-focused cockpit encompassing a large teak table, drink holders, ice maker, ample seating with opening windows and doors from the galley/saloon out to the cockpit.

This innovative design creates a highly functioning entertainment area for plenty of memories of a lifetime of great experiences at anchor and at sea.

The retractable sunroof along with the opening side windows in the galley/saloon make this a lovely entertaining and family boat, with plenty of natural light with ample tropical air flow.

A design well worthy of close inspection.

Additionally, the superior Volvo IPS engine will give you better performance and help you to maximise space onboard – including the fact that the 4400 comes with a full-width stateroom and a single and double berth in the second cabin.

In spite of the engine’s power that makes the boat responsive and easy to maneuver, the boat runs quietly compared to boats using other engines, which is nice, considering how hard it can be, sometimes, to hear one another when traveling at sea.

The engine room access is yet another feature of this lovely boat.  The cockpit floor is hydraulically lifted to access the engine room which makes maintenance a pleasure aboard this vessel.
