Riviera endorses new Australian luxury motor yacht syndication service, Boating Partnerships

The relaxing and rewarding lifestyle on offer when you purchase a brand-new Riviera luxury motor yacht is now available to those who have a passion for boating but find their time to spend out on the water is limited.

The only syndication service with the official endorsement and support of Australia’s favourite and most awarded luxury motor yacht manufacturer Riviera, Boating Partnerships shares the purchase and monthly maintenance of a brand-new Riviera or Belize motor yacht with up to six like-minded partners.

Riviera brand and communications director Stephen Milne said Boating Partnerships was a fantastic opportunity for those who appreciate the supreme levels of luxury, superior sea-keeping capabilities and state-of-the-art marine technology that are hallmark features of a world-class Riviera to enjoy all the rich and rewarding benefits of boating.

“Owners can now share the ultimate boating experience in more ways than one, realising the dream of turning weekends into holidays afloat in secluded bays or anchored off private beaches … or cruising in company across pristine blue waters to idyllic destinations,” he said.

Mr Milne said each shareholder under the new Boating Partnerships arrangement will enjoy all the benefits of being part of the global family of Riviera luxury motor yacht owners, as well as the unrivalled aftermarket support of the nationwide R Marine Network of Riviera and Belize dealers.

Boating Partnerships managing director Tom van Vliet said the program offered many new and exclusive benefits to boating enthusiasts who were looking for a premium concierge-style syndication ownership that allowed for more time on the water.

“Each partner in a Riviera operated under the Boating Partnerships program enters a tenancy in common and receives a title of ownership in proportion to the share they have purchased, protecting their equity in the yacht,” he said.

“Boating Partnerships agreements are for a period of three years and based on a one-sixth share where owners will be able to enjoy up to 52 days each year aboard. Owners also have the ability to book additional days that are unreserved within a 48-hour stand-by function, all managed by the experienced and dedicated Boating Partnerships team and the nearest R Marine dealership.”

Mr van Vliet said a professional crew will maintain each Riviera in premium condition for the ownership period, and the annual maintenance, slipping and berthing costs are affordably shared between the yacht’s owners.

“With Boating Partnerships, the choice of how to use their new luxury Riviera is agreed by the shareholders and the Boating Partnerships team,” he said.

“Boating Partnerships owners can base their boats in, say, Sydney or the Gold Coast, and then the shareholders may choose to cruise to the Whitsundays, where they can chase the endless summer, such is the flexibility of this new program. In so doing, owners will have the unique experience of coastal passage-making under the guidance of an experienced sea captain between ports on the east coast of Australia,” he said.

Mr van Vliet said the first Riviera yachts available under the new partnership program would be the sporty and adventurous 445 SUV model.

“The 445 SUV boasts the very latest in marine navigation and onboard systems technology, including digital switching, innovative joystick maneuverability and incredible fuel economy,” he said.

“Other Riviera models will also be offered under the new Boating Partnerships program, including a new 5000 Sport Yacht due for delivery in to Sydney and operating from Rushcutters Bay on the harbour prior to Christmas,” said Mr van Vliet.

Mr Milne said the full benefits of Boating Partnerships new luxury motor yacht ownership will extend to Riviera’s educational workshops and seminars, to exclusive invitations to Riviera’s spectacular social events around the world, as well as to the marque’s special Experience voyages cruising in company of fellow Riviera owners to idyllic destinations.

“We are very excited that Boating Partnerships will enable us to help even more people to enjoy what we like to call: ‘the ultimate boating experience’,” he said.
