Belize 54 Daybridge on show for the first time in New Zealand

The striking new Belize 54 Daybridge from Riviera Australia will make her New Zealand debut at the Auckland On Water Boat Show held from September 26 to 29.

Showcasing the latest in luxury, design and technology, an impressive line-up of Riviera's most popular models will impress New Zealand boating enthusiasts with a stunning display of boats over 50 feet, including the Riviera 63 Enclosed Flybridge, the Riviera 5000 Sport Yacht and the Belize 54 Daybridge.

In its 15th year, the Auckland On Water Boat Show (formerly the Auckland International Boat Show) is New Zealand's largest on-water boat show held over four days in Auckland's Viaduct Harbour, formerly home to the America's Cup.

Riviera has been building boats for the past 33 years and has exported boats to New Zealand for the past 26 years. There are now over 400 Riviera luxury cruisers in New Zealand, which is home to more larger Riviera boats over 58 feet than any other country in the world.

Riviera's dealer relationship manager Peter Welch said Riviera was proud to have some of its newest and most popular models on display at the Auckland On Water Boat Show.

We are excited about the New Zealand release of our new Belize 54 Daybridge, which has been extremely well received in both Australia and the United States, Mr Welch said.

This award-winning new model was named the ‘most innovative new builder' at the inaugural AIM (Active Interest Media) Marine Group Editors' Choice Awards in Florida.

We are also pleased to welcome back to our New Zealand dealership one of our highly regarded and long serving sales professionals, Liam Power, who will be at the R Marine JDC stand along with Dean Horgan and the JDC team for the duration of the show.

Mr Power said he was excited about rejoining the R Marine team and working with the Riviera and Belize brands and showcasing three new models at the Auckland On Water Boat Show.

R Marine JDC is firmly focused on Riviera and Belize Motoryachts' exciting future in New Zealand and we are looking forward to introducing new owner initiatives and services, as well as showcasing the exciting new models that will be on display at the show which opens on Thursday, Mr Power said.

The Riviera Australia owned bespoke Belize Motoryacht line is inspired by classic timeless style, incorporating tradition with Australian practicality and features the latest technology and performance with twin Cummins Zeus 600hp diesel engines and pod drives delivering a speed of 28-30 knots and a range at cruise speed of approximately 448nm with the installation of the optional long range fuel tank.

We are also pleased to showcase the stunning new shaft drive 63 Enclosed Flybridge, which has ticked all the right boxes for the discerning larger boat buyer, Mr Welch said.

A huge cockpit, large mezzanine, aft galley, master stateroom with large hull port light window and luxuriously appointed ‘sky lounge' enclosed flybridge featuring sumptuous leather lounges, full wet bar and optional electric sunroof makes the 63 the ideal boat for extended stays aboard.

The 63 features a range of engineering and design innovations with many popular design cues taken from the fleet's prestigious flagship, the Riviera 75, which is the largest semi-production flybridge boat built in Australia.

Continuing Riviera's commitment to innovation, the 5000 Sport Yacht offers owners the option of two accommodation layouts to further personalise this vessel: a three cabin and two bathroom design or two cabins and two bathrooms plus a below-deck open lounge area. The large full-beam aft stateroom offers options of an athwartships double bed and single portside bed or three singles. This elegant vessel maintains and expands on the single-level lifestyle design of the Riviera Sport Yacht line, including an aft galley and stainless steel pillarless aft bulkhead door and fold-up awning window that opens the saloon right out into the cockpit.

To experience these truly world-class luxury boats, the Riviera and Belize display will be located at the 2013 Auckland On Water Boat Show held at Viaduct Harbour, Auckland from September 26 to 29.

Riviera offers 15 different models from 36 to 75 feet across three model series Flybridge, Sport Yacht and the new SUV collection.

In 2012 Riviera celebrated the launch of its 5000th boat, the 445 SUV, a significant achievement in the company's rich 33-year history.

Riviera also offers the bespoke Belize Motoryachts. Inspired by classic luxury details and timeless style, Belize Motoryachts has recently released the new 54 foot Sedan and Daybridge models.
