Riviera reports robust sales in February

Australian boatbuilder Riviera said it recorded its best sales results in six months, domestically and internationally, with the contracting of 12 new-boat sales totaling about $15 million in February.

Riviera director of brand and communications Stephen Milne said this was a “tremendous result and proof the luxury boat market was gaining confidence and momentum in both Australia and the United States.

“The recent Miami International Yacht & Brokerage Show was one of our best U.S. boat show results for Riviera in more than four years,” he added. “At Miami this year we showcased our new 53 Enclosed Flybridge for the first time and announced our new 63 Enclosed Flybridge, of which we sold two new builds off the plan at the show, a fantastic achievement for our company.”

The boats that were sold in February are destined for owners in Australia, the United States and Latin America.

Riviera offers 20 models from 36 to 85 feet across four model series: Flybridge, Sport Yacht, Offshore Express and Motor Yachts.
