Riviera, Australia’s largest and most awarded luxury boat builder has recorded its best sales results in six months both domestically and internationally with the contracting of 12 new boat sales totalling AUD$13.9 million for the month of February.
Riviera’s 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 Sates.
“February has truly been an amazing month for Riviera and marks yet another positive step forward for our company, which has launched and sold more than 4,960 boats in our rich 32 year history,” Mr Milne said.
“The recent Miami International Yacht and Brokerage Show was one of our best US boat show results for Riviera in more than four years. 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.”
Riviera’s brand strength and superior design and build quality continues to defy industry sales trends. The boats sold in February are destined for owners in Australia, the US and Latin America. The models sold in February were two 4400 Sport Yacht Series IIs, one 47 Enclosed Flybridge, one 43 Open Flybridge, five 5000 Sport Yachts, two 63 Enclosed Flybridges and two 53 Enclosed Flybridges.
Riviera is now preparing for the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show and the inaugural Riviera Festival from May 24 to 27 to be held at the company’s Coomera manufacturing facility. The new 75 Enclosed Flybridge will make her world debut at the Riviera Festival where a full line-up of 16 individual models valued at AUD$23 million will also be on display. The Festival will also include a Premium Brokerage Showcase featuring a wide range of selected pre-loved Riviera models.
“2012 is gearing up to be a busy year for our designers and production staff at Riviera and our dedicated sales team is working overtime to help meet the current demand for our world-class luxury boats,” Mr Milne said
