Miami, Florida, USA: Riviera has welcomed new members to its growing global family of owners with its most successful Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show since 2008.
In a stunning $US10 million red-carpet, on-water showcase, the iconic Australian luxury yacht builder this year hosted its largest display in Miami for five years, buoyed by renewed confidence in the Americas market, and the proactive efforts of a committed Riviera dealer network.
Riviera chairman and owner Rodney Longhurst said the new owners of the 11 luxury yachts sold at the Miami show could look forward to an exciting new level of customer care, which includes exclusive invitations to social events and unique cruising experiences throughout the Americas.
“Of the 11 purchasers, only two were existing Riviera owners and this is strong confirmation of the growing international affection for the Riviera and Belize marques, and our proven ongoing commitment to our owners to create the ultimate boating experience,” said Mr Longhurst.
“It is extremely gratifying that the purchases span the range of the Riviera Sport Yacht and Flybridge collections as well as the adventurous new SUV series … and that they involve dealers from Florida, New England and British Columbia in the United States right through the Americas and including Puerto Rico, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
“It’s always inspiring to welcome first-time owners to the growing global Riviera family of owners and – on behalf of our 430-strong team of designers, engineers and master craftsmen in Australia, and our international dealer network that spans some 60 countries – I’d like to extend a very warm welcome to these new family members.”
Riviera’s Miami showcase included the stylish and sophisticated 6000 and 5000 Sport Yachts, the supremely seaworthy the 43 Open, 50 Enclosed and 53 Enclosed Flybridge models, a classically inspired Belize 54 Daybridge, as well as the entire Riviera SUV crossover series, comprising the adventurous 445, 515 and 565 models.
Mr Longhurst said the strengthening sales confirm the appeal of Riviera’s latest designs which embrace state-of-the-art technology, is also recognition of the marque’s superior fit and finish.
“We look forward to showcasing all our latest designs at the 2015 Riviera Festival of Boating from 21-24 May 2015,” he said.
Now in it’s 4th year, this truly unique festival of fun and learning helps owners and aspiring owners of luxury motoryachts to use their boats to their full potential, and this year includes over 70 informative educational and fun social events across four fantastic days (21-24 May 2015).If you would like information on the Riviera Festival of Boating, please click here.
