The Belize 66 Sedan dis­played at Fort Laud­erdale is a three-state­room, three­bath­room model that takes the con­cept of a semi-cus­tom mo­tor yacht to a new level.

Spe­cial fea­tures in­clude a full-beam mas­ter state­room and full-beam mas­ter bath­room aft of the state­room. The 66 de­liv­ers a sense of space, com­fort and lux­ury and of­fers ex­ten­sive cus­tomi­sa­tion op­tions and be­spoke el­e­ments.

Clients may se­lect a sin­gle-level life­style Sedan or a Day­bridge with clas­sic bi­mini top or hard­top. The hard­top in­cludes a re­tractable awning sun­roof.

Ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions in­clude three or four cabins with a large space be­tween the mid­ship mas­ter state­room and the en­gine room that can be op­tioned for a wide range of pur­poses, in­clud­ing crew quar­ters and a utility room. Many cock­pit lay­outs are also of­fered.

Dur­ing sea tri­als Volvo’s IPS D13 1350 helped the 66 achieve an av­er­age top speed of more than 33 knots, which de­lighted Riviera Mo­tor Yacht Spe­cial­ist and Belize project man­ager Doug Nel­son.

“She is an ex­tra­or­di­nary mo­tor yacht, com­bin­ing clas­sic styling with the very lat­est on-wa­ter com­forts for dis­cern­ing own­ers.”

The Belize joined Riviera’s nine-model red-car­pet show­case at the Fort Laud­erdale show, which also in­cluded the Amer­i­cas pre­mieres of the Riviera 72 Sports Mo­tor Yacht, the Riviera 39 Sports Mo­tor Yacht and the Riviera 395 SUV.
