R Marine Perth's New Crew Steps Aboard

Riviera's Perth dealership, R Marine Perth, has welcomed two new members to its team.

Sales professional Ben Watkins and office manager Sue Totterdell have joined long-time R Marine Perth owner care manager Tim Wright who has been providing customer support to Perth's Riviera owners for over five years.

The past few months have been a very busy time for R Marine Perth with Tim moving into a sales role for new Riviera and Belize Motoryachts as well as pre-owned boats. Tim's strong knowledge of Riviera boats has helped the dealership achieve an impressive number of brokerage sales in the past 12 weeks. Since Tim has moved into sales, R Marine Perth has sold 12 brokerage boats and have generated a high level of new model enquiry with all of this activity, Tim is proud and very happy to welcome Ben Watkins onboard.

Ben has spent many years in the marine industry in Western Australia and his enthusiasm for Riviera and R Marine Perth is absolutely infectious. He has already listed multiple brokerage boats for the dealership and attended the Sydney International Boat Show where he met many of our owners that had flown to Sydney to view the new 50 Enclosed Flybridge and 565 SUV amongst Riviera's and Belize's exciting new models, Tim said.

Ben brings a wealth of nautical experience to R Marine Perth, including eight months aboard a 60 foot motor vessel on the French Riviera, skippering, navigating, experience in boat sales, marketing, branding and he holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree.

Ben said his previous experience had given him a great insight into the broader marine industry.

I have gained a detailed understanding of the local marine industry through working as a boat broker, which has allowed me to build a significant network of clients, Ben said.

My passion for boats has stemmed from a lifetime of being around boats and the ocean. My experience, including time spent working on boats overseas has allowed me to develop a very wide skill set around every aspect of boat ownership and I am delighted to be joining the R Marine Perth team and have the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience.

Tim said Sue Totterdell was also a welcome addition to the dealership and her expertise in office management would be a great asset to the growing team.

Sue has a very professional approach to her work and will make this dealership a seamless operation for both our team and our owners, Tim said.

Riviera CEO Wes Moxey said Riviera Australia was very focused on growing owner support in Western Australia through two dealership locations, Perth and Mandurah.

We are 100 per cent behind Tim and the new team to continue the fine efforts of this dealership as we enter an exciting new phase of growth, Mr Moxey said.

While a new team marks a fresh change, there are many aspects to the dealership that will not change. R Marine's first class Rottnest Support owner care program, Priority Assist, will continue as normal providing absolute peace of mind to our valued owners in Perth.

Great owner experience events have been a hallmark of the R Marine Perth dealership and such events will continue as normal, in fact the team are planning a series of new events for 2014 that will inspire Riviera and Belize owners. A major cruise event will take place in April next year and R Marine Perth owners will be shortly notified directly regarding these plans.

Over the next few months we hope to make a few more exciting announcements regarding our plans for R Marine Perth's boat owners.

45 Open Flybridge - Shaft Drive

Anyone investing in a luxury pleasure boat has developed certain lifestyle standards and an aversion to compromise. If you relate to this, welcome to the world of Riviera… and in particular welcome aboard the 45 Open Flybridge.

43 Open Flybridge - IPS

The new Riviera 43 Open Flybridge, is the latest in flybridge design from Australia’s most awarded luxury boat builder.

It is a luxury boat beyond anything previously developed by Riviera, Australia’s most awarded luxury boat builder. The exciting Riviera 5800 Sport Yacht, is the latest and most dramatic of the company’s European-style Sport Yacht series.

5000 Sport Yacht - Zeus

Embarking on the development of an entirely new style of boat is one of the most challenging and exciting projects we have undertaken in recent times. The inspiration for our Sport Yacht series, came from recognising the changing values and lifestyles not just of boat owners, but people everywhere – changes that are reflected in such domains as contemporary architecture, interior design and the styling of prestige cars.

4400 Sport Yacht Series II - IPS

In our long history we have produced many new vessels, but none has challenged traditions or questioned the assumptions on which boats are generally built quite like our Sport Yacht series.

New 565 SUV

From the immediate acceptance and success of the 445SUV, the 565 will be a great all round entertainer. Lockable sliding rear door, 3 sided enclosed hardtop with sliding side windows as standard makes for a comfortable boat in all types of weather.

New 445 SUV

Bearing Riviera’s classic hallmark design, the new 445 SUV has been crafted with Riviera’s rich-heritage in mind. Combining the high performance, blue water cruising abilities and large open cockpit of the classic Flybridge with the fish raising abilities of the Offshore Express, and the single-level leisurely, entertaining features of the popular Sport Yacht series, has created a vessel like no other, a true bridge between all of them.

Belize 54 Daybridge

All the amenities of the Sedan but with extra benefits on top. For those who relish open-air boating, or live where the warm season is short and want to make the most of it. Arcing deep-tread stairs lead up to saloon-like amenities including large L-shaped lounge, hi-lo table, wet bar with sink and fridge, and a second day helm.

Belize 54 Sedan

One continuous level of luxury with everything to hand - helm. galley, saloon, dining, bar - in a comfy, roomy weather-proof space. The Sedan is all Sport Yacht style; less about catching fish as catching up. Rear hopper window and sliding door extends entertaining to the open air. As does the giant sliding sunroof, either at anchor or under way.
