Sail-World.com : European première for Belize 54 Daybridge at Cannes Yachting Festival
European première for Belize 54 Daybridge at Cannes Yachting Festival

'The Belize 54 Daybridge will make her European premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival.'    Riviera Brandcom

The distinctive new Belize 54 Daybridge from the bespoke Belize Motoryacht Collection will make her European premiere at the 2014 Cannes Yachting Festival from September 9 to 14.

This opulent new vessel from Riviera Australia will lead an impressive line-up of luxurious Australian designed cruisers from the award-winning manufacturer, including the 4400 Sport Yacht and 45 Open Flybridge.

Riviera chairman and owner Rodney Longhurst said Riviera looked forward to showcasing its latest designs at Europe’s largest and most esteemed boat show.

Belize Motoryachts 54 Daybridge

• Fresh original design blends traditional charm with the latest marine technology
• Free-flowing feel from expansive cockpit to luxurious raised helm
• Opulent interior – Three staterooms, two bathrooms
• Full-beam master stateroom
• High-performance hull with keel
• Cummins Zeus pod drives x 2 (442kW x 600hp) – top speed of around 30 knots, cruising range of 304NM at 21 knots
• Engineering excellence – hull constructed in ISO-certified yard-5-year structural warranty
• Orders have been placed up to hull number 18

'Our latest models have been very well received in the Americas and we are certain the European market will be equally impressed with Riviera and Belize’s 2014 model collection,' Mr Longhurst said.

'Our new Belize 54 Daybridge is already proving popular among boating aficionados with her sophisticated styling, luxurious interior, savvy storage concepts and high-performance hull design.

'Inspired by timeless panache and Australian practicality, the Belize Motoryacht line was designed to cater for the growing affection for high-end luxury power boats that boast an original design blending traditional charm with the latest in marine technology and is available in both the Daybridge and Sedan models.'

Riviera and Belize international sales director Chris McCafferty said the Belize 54 Daybridge had the ability to transfix an entire bay of modern craft when she glides in.

'The sleek lines, sweet sheer, shippy bulwark, shapely hatches and portholes...and of course the substance to her stainless steel rails and cleats are key attributes that set this Belize apart and already 18 hulls have been purchased of this new timeless design,' Mr McCafferty said.

Long before you step on-board you get the impression that the 54 Daybridge is in a class all of its own. Belize designers have purposed every inch of available space through smart storage compartments and additional living space.

A large double sunpad sprawls the centreline of the forward deck, with stainless steel drink holders and music controls conveniently placed within easy reach. Located inside the anchor locker are fresh and salt water wash-down points, as well as a deep storage space for additional ground tackle and fenders, while a reliable Muir anchor retrieval system is located under a protective hatch at the bow of the boat, creating more deck space and a very clean appearance.

Mr McCafferty said the centre section of the 54 Daybridge’s large teak-deck swim platform raises and lowers hydraulically to grant easy access to the transom’s electric door garage where there is space for a three-metre tender and outboard that can be easily launched or retrieved without getting your feet wet using the built-in electric winch.

'Above the garage, there’s another hatch that lifts to reveal an electric BBQ centre with grill, sink and solid surface bench top, with helpful LED lighting and stainless steel splashback in the open hatch cover that will impress the most discerning chef,' he said.

The Belize 54 sedan offers a functional servery and bar area with chairs that swing out - perfect for entertaining. -  Riviera Brandcom  

'The solid fibreglass hardtop extends aft over an expansive cockpit to ensure shade and shelter from extremities but at the same time enrich the indoor-outdoor characteristic for which Belize Motoryachts are renowned. There’s a cockpit joystick to port for easy and precise docking while, aft, is a large lounge with great storage under as well as a folding hi-lo table that can convert to a daybed. There’s even more storage at the cockpit bar with fridge and ice-maker console starboard, and swing-out stools at the breakfast bar to port … with a large glass awning window that, when open, connects the bar and galley as one – this is the place to enjoy a lazy breakfast or to drink in a sunset.'

Indeed, the opened glass awning window affirms the port galley as the key entertainment hub of the boat, where the innovative C-Zone central digital switching controls for all on-board lighting and electrics is also located.

The Belize 54 Sedan is an entertainer's delight with its single level living saloon, aft galley and cockpit. -  Riviera Brandcom  

Heading into the saloon from the cockpit, the 54 Daybridge’s rear bulkhead is toughened, curved glass, enriching the sense of light, space and liveability in the luxuriously appointed saloon, where panels of rich walnut, plush carpet and soft-touch leather are used in a contemporary palette to create a warm and inviting ambiance, with an added bonus of contributing to excellent acoustics throughout the main living areas and main helm.

Two-pack polyurethane finishes accent and protect key surfaces throughout the boat, including the galley where no less than Miele badges the induction cooktop, combination oven and microwave, and Vitrifrigo the two capacious chiller drawers and separate freezer drawer.

'To starboard is the heart of the saloon, a large L-shaped lounge and dinette where opening side windows allow natural ventilation,' said Mr McCafferty. 'When the temperature calls for it, the saloon, galley and helm – as well as the below-deck staterooms – are all air-conditioned.'

The command centre of the 54 Daybridge is inspiring in its design and maintains the elegant sophistication of this boat – all key critical navigation electronics, engine instrumentation and vessel controls are within easy reach of the central high-backed Treban Italian leather electric helm seat fronting a high quality sports electric steering wheel, and providing excellent visibility of two 15-inch multifunction display screens. Alongside the helm seat is a forward-facing three-seater lounge starboard, and a two-seater lounge facing aft. At anchor or underway, fresh air can be introduced to the helm and saloon via a central overhead hatch.

The Belize 54 features an opulent full-beam master stateroom. -  Riviera Brandcom  

Mr McCafferty said the sense of light and space flows through to the below-deck atrium and generous accommodation, which includes a full-beam master stateroom with queen-sized island bed, quality carpets, a fixed 24-inch TV-DVD and opening portlights within large portlight windows for cross ventilation. The master ensuite has satin-varnished teak floors and elegant German Grohe tapware and showerhead, adding an extra touch of opulence.
'The VIP stateroom is every bit as elegant as the master and occupies the entire forward bow section,' he said.

'There are fixed portlights to port and starboard, a central round deck hatch overhead, make-up bureau with fold-out seat and mirror, hanging lockers as well as another 24-inch TV-DVD. The VIP ensuite, which doubles as the dayhead, also boasts luxurious bathroom appointments, large frameless glass shower stall, non-slip satin-varnished teak floors as well as its own round deck hatch and opening porthole, as well as more savvy storage concepts.

'The plushly carpeted guest cabin to starboard has full-sized upper and lower berths, hanging locker, bedside table and drawers as well as its own opening porthole and circular deck hatch. It’s another great example of the Belize belief system of going first-class.'

The inviting Daybridge of the 54 can be accessed via an elegantly curving, teak-tread staircase from the cockpit. Every bit as sociable as the main saloon, the Daybridge has a large L-shaped lounge to port with hi-lo table that can drop to create a second sunpad. Opposite is a wet bar with sink and fridge, as well as a second-station helm with all essential navigation aids.

Mr McCafferty said the hull of the 54 Daybridge was created with twin Cummins Zeus 600 pod drives with aft-facing propellers specifically in mind, resulting in a shape beautifully matched to her power source that slices through the water and ensures a silky and stable ride offshore.

'The highly evolved pod propulsion system not only delivers superior handling and manoeuvring in tight situations but also creates additional space to assist servicing and reduce maintenance costs.

'The pod drives deliver low noise levels, impressive fuel efficiency and high top-end speed and, in the case of the 54 Daybridge, a cruising range of 304NM at 21 knots.

'The Belize 54 Daybridge will make her European premiere at the 2014 Cannes Yachting Festival from 9-14 September.'

The bespoke Motor Yacht line, Belize Motoryachts is inspired by classic luxury details and timeless style. Belize Motoryachts has just released the new 52 foot Sedan and Day Bridge models.
