Australian luxury boat builder Riviera has recruited 30 new team members across all aspects of the business to meet the award-winning company’s growing global demand.

With a forward order bank reaching well through 2014, an array of upcoming international boat shows, a very active new model development plan and the upcoming world premiere of several exciting new models this year, Riviera’s chairman and owner Rodney Longhurst said the company began a recruitment drive late last year as the demand for the company’s Australian designed and built luxury cruisers increased.

“I have just returned from the Dusseldorf Boat Show in Germany where European boating enthusiasts showed great interest in the Riviera and Belize display, which is very encouraging for the Riviera and Belize brands in the vast European market,” Longhurst says.

Riviera Adds 30 More Team Members 

“We have a dedicated team on the ground now in Miami preparing our new Riviera 50 Enclosed Flybridge and Belize 54 Daybridge for their Americas premiere at the Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show next week and our senior team from the factory fly out this week to join them.

“We now have almost 400 people onsite at Coomera who are all actively engaged in maximising the opportunities of 2014.”

Riviera’s new team includes boat builders, production managers, aftermarket and service technicians, school-based apprentices, logistics, marketing professionals and finance experts.

Riviera offers 15 different models from 36 to 75 feet across three model series Flybridge, Sport Yacht and the new SUV collection.

Riviera also offers the bespoke Belize Motoryachts. Inspired by classic luxury details and timeless style, Belize Motoryachts recently released the new 54-foot Sedan and Daybridge models.
