Riviera returns to Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in 2018

Australia’s most awarded luxury motor yacht builder, Riviera, has announced today that it will exhibit at Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show from May 24 to 27, 2018.  

The iconic Gold Coast based yacht builder, which has launched more that 5,200 motor yachts over the past 37 years, will stage an inspired display at Sanctuary Cove representative of its five distinctive and award-winning model collections – SUV, Flybridge, Sports Motor Yacht, Sport Yacht and Belize motor yachts. 

Riviera Chairman and Owner, Rodney Longhurst said:  “Riviera last displayed at Sanctuary Cove in 2012 and since then there has been many significant advancements and achievements with our motor yachts.

“Over the past five years we have created two entirely new motor yacht designs with our sporty and adventurous SUV Collection and, just three months ago, conducted the World Premiere of the magnificent new Sports Motor Yacht Collection.

“Today the SUV Collection includes 445, 525 and 575 models and we have launched the 68 and 72 Sports Motor Yachts. 

“Our talented team has also created the new blue water 52 and 57 Enclosed Flybridges together with the sophisticated and very stylish new 4800, 5400 and 6000 Sport Yachts. 

“In this same period we have added the timeless classic Belize 54 Sedan and Daybridge motor yachts to our growing and diverse model range. 

“In total that’s 12 compelling new models that have all met with considerable international acclaim. 

“We have also introduced and refined industry leading technology that has revolutionised the motor yachting experience. Digital switching, Glass Cockpit navigation, station holding, joystick steering and fuel efficient and silky smooth propulsion have all made boating with Riviera such a dream. At the same time, new tank tested hull designs crafted by our in-house experts and the internationally recognised Frank Mulder have afforded superior offshore performance. 

“In harmony with the latest technology, our master craftsmen have perfected luxury with a level of sublime comfort and finish that is truly world-class and this is something I am immensely proud of.

“Visitors to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in 2018 will have the opportunity to step aboard selected models from our magnificent range of new motor yachts featuring all of our latest marine technology, innovation and luxury appointments. I know they will be very impressed with the calibre of yachts we are creating at Riviera Australia.”

In parallel with Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, Riviera will host their 7th Annual Festival of Boating that provides Riviera and Belize owners with a wide choice of theoretical and hands–on boating education workshops as well as a headline social event on the Saturday evening.

“We are proud to return to Sanctuary Cove next year and May 2018 will certainly provide great incentive for motor yacht enthusiasts to visit the Gold Coast,” concluded Rodney Longhurst.

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.
