Riviera Searching For Master Craftsmen
Published: Wednesday, 17 September 2014
Riviera, Australia’s world-class boat building company is looking for highly skilled and experienced craftsmen and cabinetmakers to fill 14 positions.
“We are looking for driven individuals with trade qualifications in boat building or cabinet making or demonstrated boat building experience, excellent hand tool skills and machinery experience, a strong understanding of safe work practices, the ability to adhere to strict production deadlines, a positive attitude, an aptitude for team work and a strong eye for detail,” says Scott Cummings, Riviera’s General Manager. “We offer a professional and supportive work environment based at Riviera’s 14-hectare Coomera facility, the largest of its type in the Southern Hemisphere.”
“Eighty-five per cent of the boats we are building right now are 50 feet and over, and 55 per cent of our annual production is sold to overseas owners,” says Riviera’s Chairman and owner Rodney Longhurst. “We increased our team back in April in line with the growing international and domestic demand for Riviera’s luxury boats and our increasing forward order bank. We now have more than 400 people onsite at Coomera and we look forward to expanding our team further in the future as we head into our busy boat show season with further sales at upcoming boat shows in Cannes, Newport Rhode Island, Barcelona, Auckland, Mandurah, Fort Lauderdale and closer to home, our own Gold Coast International Marine Expo held at the Riviera facility and Gold Coast City Marina Oct 17 to 19.”
Riviera offers 15 different models from 36 to 75 feet across three model series: Flybridge, Sport Yacht and the new SUV collection.
In 2012 Riviera celebrated the launch of its 5000th boat, the 445 SUV, a significant achievement in the company’s 34-year history.
Riviera also offers the bespoke Belize Motoryachts. Inspired by classic luxury details and timeless style, Belize Motoryachts has recently released the new 54-foot Sedan and Daybridge models.
