Australian builder Riviera said its new 5400 Sport Yacht will make its world debut at the Feb. 11-15 Miami International Boat Show.

Volvo Penta’s Inboard Propulsion System will power the yacht. Twin Volvo Penta IPS2-800 D11 engines and pod drive units are standard propulsion; IPS2-950 D11 engines and pod drive units are optional.

“This striking and remarkably roomy avant-garde design epitomizes the Riviera ethos of excellence that is embodied in every yacht created in our world-class manufacturing facility on Australia’s Gold Coast,” Riviera chairman and owner Rodney Longhurst said in a statement.

Longhurst said the finishing touches are being applied to the boat.
