Riviera strengthens European presence with new sales manager appointment

Riviera – Australia’s favourite and most-awarded luxury motor yacht builder – has appointed a vastly experienced European sales manager to further strengthen its international presence and owner support in Europe.

Based in Barcelona, Spain, highly regarded marine professional Jan Van Oostenryck has over 17 years of experience with the Riviera and Belize marques that are renowned globally for their premium luxury, practicality, easy-to-use technology, superior build quality and legendary sea-keeping capabilities.

Riviera international sales director Chris McCafferty, in announcing the appointment at the Cannes Yachting Festival, said Mr Van Oostenryck will work closely with members of Riviera’s growing European family of yacht owners and the established Riviera dealer network.

“Jan is very passionate about the boating life. He brings a great deal of energy, knowledge and experience to this new role,” said Mr McCafferty.

“His appointment will ensure premium customer care enjoyed by Riviera and Belize owners throughout the Americas and Australasia is delivered at the same high level throughout Europe. This will create an even more rewarding boating experience for the Riviera Family.”

Mr Van Oostenryck said he was very excited at the opportunity of delivering Riviera’s premium customer care initiatives, including superior support and exclusive invitations to boating education and social events, as well as cruising-in-company experiences.

“Riviera’s impressive designs from 36-77 feet span five distinctive model collections and cater to a wide range of individual and geographic boating interests and aspirations,” he said.

“The company has an unparalleled ‘ethos of excellence’ that drives everything from design to final fit and finish, right through to the honour displayed by our international dealer network that now spans the globe.

“Having now built over 5200 luxury motor yachts that today cruise the great lakes, rivers and oceans of the world, Riviera continues to embrace innovation and technology as we to strive to enhance the fun and lifestyle fulfillment of Riviera owners the world over.

“This genuine commitment reflects how Riviera is continuing to reward our owners with ‘the time of their lives’.

“It’s what Riviera chairman and owner Rodney Longhurst and the entire talented 500-strong team at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility on Australia’s Gold Coast likes to call: ‘the ultimate boating experience’.”
