Since being revealed to the world at the Sydney International Boat Show, Riviera's sensational Sport Motor Yacht 68/72 sisters have got to their owners all over the world.

This one is hull number four, and is the first to sport this magnificent, custom tuna tower. It not only looks the part, it taps into the strength of the bridge, so mounts there, not at the deck. Central ladder also bound to be more user friendly!

Little wonder the order book is out to 2019, and you cannot help but wonder how many more will now be prepared with this ultimate in fishing option. Looks like the owner will soon be able to rumble the MAN 1800s into life soon enough, and go chase down some serious fish. Hull #5 is going to the USA and has the MAN 1900s, which will make her special in her own right, as indeed all of them are with their unique little touches.

This video is of Hull #1, which was a Sport Motor Yacht 68. They share the same for'ard section, with the mezzanine receiving something like 500mm extra, and the cockpit and impressive 1m in the larger boat - as well as more fuel.
