Riviera prepares for 2014’s Ultimate boating event

Riviera is now preparing for its biggest annual boating event as power boat owners and enthusiasts from around the world unite at the home of Australia’s favourite and most awarded luxury boat builder for the 3rd Riviera Festival of Boating held from May 22 to 25.

The Riviera Festival of Boating provides an opportunity for owners and aspiring owners of luxury pleasure craft to come together at Riviera’s 14-hectare, state-of-the-art Coomera facility for four days of boating education and fun-filled social activities.

The 2014 program will include something for every boating enthusiast with skipper training for men, women and children.  The expanded program will include interactive displays, the Technology Showcase on the waterfront and some of the most popular events such as, Riviera factory tours, offshore seamanship with Captain Bob Jones, maintenance tricks of the trade, fishing clinics, electronic navigation, sanitation system maintenance, and anchoring, line work and rafting, to name but a few.

This year there will be some exciting new events added to the program, including a seminar from Riviera owners Narelle and Peter Williams who have travelled some 36,000 nautical miles, equivalent to one-and-a-half times around the world, in their Riviera 47 Open Flybridge and they look forward to sharing their couple-focused cruising experiences, information and advice in a delightful seminar.

Riviera’s red carpet, under cover on-water display will showcase an impressive line-up of brand new models from Riviera and Belize with a retail value of AUD$22 million, including the new 515 SUV, which will make her world premiere at the Festival, and the flagship of the Riviera fleet, the 75 Enclosed Flybridge.

Riviera owners will also be invited to exclusive owner-only events held during the four day boating festival.  Riviera will also offer VIP parking and transport to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show via ferry to all registered Festival guests.

75 Enclosed Flybridge - Shaft Drive

Designed from the keel up, using Riviera’s Uni-Graphics NX three dimensional CAD software system, the new 53 has been developed in-house after nearly two years of detailed consultation with boat owners across the globe. The result is a fresh approach, signalling a new generation of Riviera prowess and efficiency. The 53 is a vessel of considerable internal volume, allowing Riviera’s designers to create unprecedented living spaces, elegant amenities and unrivalled performance.

New 50 Enclosed Flybridge

The stunning new 50 Enclosed Flybridge is expected to prove equally enticing as her big sister, the 53 Enclosed Flybridge. The new model is currently under construction and will make her world debut in 2013.

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.

5800 Sport Yacht - IPS

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.

3600 Sport Yacht Series II - IPS

It is a luxury boat beyond anything previously developed by Riviera, Australia’s most awarded luxury boat builder. The exciting Riviera 3600 Sport Yacht, is the latest and most dramatic of the company’s European-style 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.
