Just on time for Christmas!

Nautilus Yacht Management is proud to present 'Le Reve', a beautifully presented example of the immensely popular Riviera 40 Fybdrige, which awards-winning quality of build, intelligent layout, luxurious fit-out and second-to none engineering has once and for all established Australia on the world map of luxury yacht manufacturing.

This Riviera 40 Flybridge has been maintained beautifully by her owners, who recently spent an additional $60,000 in upgrades, including:

-          Upgraded LED searchlight on bow.

-          all nav. lights upgraded to 6 miles LED units
-          New Projet tender – tows wakeboards, ski, tube
-          New removable tender cradle (great so you can use the bow for lounging around)
-          New autopilot.
-          New turbos,
-          New alternators
-          New water supply lines to water tanks
-          New waste lines
-          New toilet base mechanism

-          New Fusion stereo with remote to flybridge
-          New salon speakers and amplifier

'Le Reve'  was fully detailed and her engines serviced to make her market-ready in time for the Christmas and her lucky buyers. Her interior and exterior present as near new, with recently replaced flybridge clears, a deep shine to the gelcoat, and the teak upstairs and downstairs in the cockpit in very good condition. Her interior is equally beautiful, and one can tell at first glance that this two-owners only boat has been treated with the utmost love and care. The only sign of use we could find in fact is worn caulking on the swim platform, which can easily be refreshed. The adjoining teak is otherwise in good condition.


The boat is powered by 2 x 450 hp 3126B engines, last serviced December 2016. Hours are 300hrs approx since engine rebuild by Cat.

'Le Reve' is the loveliest Riviera of this age we have ever seen and is a credit to her owners. 

Little creature comfort include live bait tank, macro suede couch in flybridge, Miele washer dryer, new carpet in 2014, flat screen TVs in each room, top of the range sound system, remote control spotlight on flybridge, bow thruster, air conditioning, etc.

There's storage beneath the base which lifts on gas struts, soft-touch padded walls and sidepockets, deep hanging lockers with three shelves. There's a separate storage locker recessed in the wall..
