Riviera achieves 12 sales in 30 days
Published: Thursday, 19 April 2012
Riviera, Australia’s largest and most awarded luxury boat builder has achieved 12 sales in the past month following the purchase of the company on March 8 by Longhurst Marine Holdings Pty Ltd.
Riviera’s Director of Brand and Sales Stephen Milne said this was a very encouraging sign for Riviera. “Since returning to private ownership in early March, Riviera has secured 12 new boat sales over four weeks, which tells us that boating enthusiasts are very happy that we are independent and back in private ownership. Our new model development plan is underway and our future looks very promising, which has all contributed to the new boat sales in quick succession of our sale announcement,” Mr Milne said.
Totaling AUD$21 million, the sales include six 53 Enclosed Flybridges, three 5000 Sport Yachts, one 63 Enclosed Flybridge, one 43 Open Flybridge and one 5800 Sport Yacht bound for destinations around Australia and the globe including America, Puerto Rico, New Zealand, Sydney and Perth.
Free of Receivership constraints, Riviera has set its course and is looking forward to a positive future as the company prepares for a round of upcoming boat shows, including the inaugural Riviera Festival and Boat Show in May. The Riviera Festival, which is exclusively for Riviera owners, and the Riviera Boat Show, which is open to the general public with free admission, will be held from May 24 to 27 at Riviera’s state-of-the-art Coomera facility, 50 Waterway Drive, Coomera. Riviera owners wishing to register and book for the exclusive owner events must do so by entering their hull number online at www.riviera.com.au/festival.
