Fleet of seven Rivieras to star at Auckland On Water Boat Show

Australia's premium luxury motor yacht builder, Riviera, will present a fleet of seven gleaming new motor yachts at the Auckland On Water Boat Show from 27 to 30 September.

The showcase at Viaduct Harbour, staged in partnership with New Zealand’s Riviera and Belize representative R Marine Flagship, features supreme examples of three collections including the sophisticated 6000, 5400 and 4800 Sport Yachts, the blue-water 52 Enclosed and 43 Open Flybridge models and the sporty and adventurous 525 and 445 SUVs.

The weekend festivities will also include a special Auckland evening of celebration for the Riviera family.

Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst said: "New Zealand has a proud reputation for enjoying the motor yachting lifestyle, and I am delighted that Riviera luxury motor yachts have been a significant part of that lifestyle for 38 years. In that time Rivieras have truly been proven in the wide range of New Zealand boating conditions.

“Our Auckland showcase will reflect how our world-class team of designers, engineers and boatbuilders continually strive for excellence, for exceptional blue-water sea-keeping capabilities and for a totally fulfilling boating experience."

“Each one of these seven motor yachts is a brilliant example of Riviera’s evolution and constant refinement across our five collections."

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.

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.

Bearing Riviera’s classic hallmark design, the new 445 SUV has been crafted with Riviera’s rich-heritage in mind.

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.
