Riviera opens new U.S. headquarters

Riviera, Australia's largest luxury boatbuilder, is opening a new United States headquarters in Stuart, Fla.

A team of seven longtime Riviera professionals are on hand to help dealers and Riviera owners.

Riviera CEO John Anderson said the company will continue to work with its network of 31 dealerships in the Americas to maintain its support and commitment.

"Quality, integrity, sheer boating enjoyment, and absolute peace of mind are the hallmarks of the Riviera brand and have made Riviera one of the leading boating brands in the U.S.," Anderson said in a statement.

"Our commitment to the United States market continues with strong resolve, and we look forward to exhibiting at both Fort Lauderdale and Miami boat shows and a great many regional shows," he added.

Riviera went into voluntary receivership earlier this year, and last month, the receivers for Riviera announced they had started the "expressions of interest" process for parties interested in acquiring the assets and business of the Riviera Group.

Riviera offers 20 models from 36 to 70 feet across four model series: flybridge, sport yacht, offshore express and motoryacht.

The address for the new headquarters is Riviera Yachts USA, 7725 SW Ellipse Way, Stuart FL 34997.
