Riviera’s trio of de­lights

NT News - Motoring - - CARS GUIDE -

ONE of the high­lights of the up­com­ing Mandurah Boat Show in Western Aus­tralia will be the de­but of three new ves­sels from noted lux­ury boat builder Riviera.

The three-day Club Ma­rine Mandurah Boat Show runs from Oc­to­ber 11 to 13 and is set to be another cracker, with plenty of ac­tion on and off the wa­ter. Al­most 20,000 peo­ple at­tended last year’s show.

On the boat­ing front, there will ev­ery­thing from kayaks, ten­ders and tin­nies all the way through to lux­ury cruis­ers. At the lat­ter end of the scale will be the three new Riviera mod­els the new 445 SUV, 53 En­closed Fly­bridge and the Belize 54 Sedan.

Riviera has been around for 33 years and sold more than 5000 boats. Chair­man and owner Rod­ney Longhurst said Riviera was proud to be part of WA’s big­gest boat­ing life­style event, and the three new boats will be part of their float­ing dis­play. Bear­ing Riviera’s clas­sic de­sign, the new 445 SUV has been crafted to the high lev­els syn­ony­mous with the brand and is de­signed to marry the best fea­tures of two other pop­u­lar mod­els.

Com­bin­ing the high per­for­mance, blue wa­ter cruis­ing abil­i­ties of the clas­sic Fly­bridge and the sin­gle-level leisurely en­ter­tain­ing fea­tures of the pop­u­lar Sport Yacht se­ries, Riviera has cre­ated a ves­sel that of­fers a true bridge be­tween th­ese two pop­u­lar se­ries.

This strik­ing new model has been ex­tremely well re­ceived, with 18 new 445s sold since its re­lease last year.

Riviera of­fers 15 dif­fer­ent mod­els from 10m to 23m across three se­ries — Fly­bridge, Sport Yacht and the new SUV col­lec­tion.

Also on show for the first time at Mandurah is Riviera’s 53 En­closed Fly­bridge. The model has been dubbed the Space­ship be­cause of her enor­mous in­ter­nal vol­ume in­clud­ing a full-beam main suite, un­prece­dented liv­ing spa­ces, el­e­gant ameni­ties, un­ri­valled per­for­mance and space-age tech­nol­ogy.
