It starts with the teak-laid swim platform, two-thirds of which is submersible to facilitate launching a tender from the aft garage. The teak treatment continues into the cockpit, where a spacious stern seat and an L-shaped lounge to starboard invite you to linger and enjoy the outdoor galley with its barbecue, fridge and ice maker.

Wide side decks lure a visit to the foredeck entertaining area. Or step into the salon, where a large and efficient U-shaped galley with stone countertop lies to starboard, complete with an induction cooktop, convection microwave, fridges, freezers and a pantry opposite. One step forward and up from the galley is the starboard dinette facing a free-standing portside lounge, which can be easily moved to add to the dinette seating. 

The expansive helm offers a comfortable, sporty steering wheel and an elegant glass dash facing luxurious twin captain’s chairs, with a third, copilot seat to starboard. 
“The wraparound windshield really completes the helm,” says Riviera’s Chris McCafferty. “It offers exceptional visibility while giving the boat a classic, distinctive look.”

A staircase just ahead of the helm leads below deck. Riviera offers a wide range of three- and four-cabin layouts in the Belize 66, allowing owners to choose a floorplan option that best meets their needs. The four-cabin Classic layout features a full-beam master stateroom amidships with a full-beam ensuite aft, while the three-cabin Grand Presidential option includes large wardrobes and a bidet. In either case, the forward guest stateroom features a queen bed, twin wardrobes and an ensuite head. A cabin on the port side is equipped with twin beds that can slide together to create a comfortable double, with ensuite access to the day head. All cabins are fully carpeted, and all wardrobes and storage lockers are cedar-lined.

Power for the new Belize 66 Sedan comes from twin Volvo Penta IPS3 1350 turbo diesel engines connected to the IPS3 pod drive system.
