Riviera’s trio of delights
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.
