Riviera holds first boat show

Australian boatbuilder Riviera held the inaugural Riviera Festival and Boat Show, which ran May 24-27, and the company said thousands of people attended.

The event, which the company said was attended by thousands of people, featured the world release of Riviera’s new flagship model, the 75 Enclosed Flybridge, and the world boat show debut of the new Belize 52 Motoryacht and the announcement of the new Riviera 49 Enclosed Flybridge, which is due for release in mid-2013.

More than 80 educational and social events for Riviera owners were held. The educational sessions taught owners lessons about driving and maintaining their boats, navigation and electronics and selecting a soft furnishing palette and understanding desalination. Factory tours gave many owners a firsthand experience of the boatbuilding process.

The official Riviera Festival partners were Aqualuma; Raymarine; Cat Marine Power; Cummins; Furuno; Simrad; Navnet; Volvo Penta; Aurora Yacht Logistics; R Electronics; Dockwise Yacht Transport; Nuplex Composites; Peters & May; Seakeeper; Cummins Onan Marine Generators; Horizon Reverse Osmosis; Man; and Twin Disc.

Riviera offers 14 models from 36 to 75 feet across three model series — flybridge, sport yacht and offshore express. About half of the company’s production is exported to a dealer network that spans more than 30 countries.
