Riviera expands its United States, West Coast dealer network
Riviera and Emerald Pacific Yachts have joined forces to service the entire US West Coast from Alaska in the north to more than 2,500 nautical miles south to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico as Riviera's exclusive distributor.
With two dealership locations in Seattle and San Diego; Emerald Pacific Yachts recently merged with Alliance Yacht Sales, a long-standing Riviera dealer operated by father and son team Robert and Rob Scott.
Emerald Pacific Yachts was established 13 years ago and is a well-respected company with substantial experience in selling quality motor yachts up to 130'.
Dealer Principal Rob Scott brings with him 14 years experience and extensive knowledge of the Riviera line through his passion for boating. During this period, Alliance Yacht Sales delivered more than 100 new Rivieras.
Mr Scott said Riviera was well-known and respected on the West Coast for their great sea keeping ability, along with world-class style and industry leading innovation.
"I am proud to represent the Riviera line of luxury yachts and look forward to offering the latest designs and technology such as the impressive new 5800 and 5000 Sport Yachts, 51 Flybridge with triple IPS and the new flagship model, the mighty 70," Mr Scott said.
"I have worked with Riviera for the past 14 years. I am fortunate to call many Riviera owners friends and have conducted a great many Riviera Experience events, most recently a flotilla of about 35 Rivieras headed to the west-coast of Canada for a week-long retreat around Vancouver Island.
"The West Coast offers Riviera owners a range of boating experiences from the breathtakingly rugged waters of Alaska, the San Juan Islands off Seattle, Santa Catalina Island off the coast of California all the way south to Mexico's fishing mecca in Cabo San Lucas.
"This year I look forward to several upcoming Riviera owner events including a Salmon tournament, summer golfing at Bear Mountain Golf Resort, in Victoria and some Marlin fishing in Cabo San Lucas. I encourage all Riviera owners to confirm their contact details with Emerald Pacific Yachts to ensure they receive regular news and a calendar of events so they too, can join the Riviera Family at these social events."
Director of Riviera Yachts USA Inc Chris McCafferty said the new partnership with Emerald Pacific Yachts was a strong move for Riviera in the United States as the company continues to power ahead in 2010.
"Riviera looks forward to a prosperous future and this partnership will only strengthen Riviera Yachts' market position on the West Coast," Mr McCafferty said.
"Emerald Pacific Yachts provide Riviera owners with an extensive range of genuine spare parts and service, cruises exclusive to the Riviera Family as we showcase all of the new Riviera models to the US market in 2010."
