“The loyalty of our highly valued owners in Australia and New Zealand confirms there’s nothing quite like owning a Riviera and directly reflects the huge commitment of our growing our Marine dealer network, and our annual awards recognise excellence in this regard,” says Riviera Chairman and Owner Rodney Longhurst.

The R Marine network is the largest luxury motor yacht dealer network throughout Australia and Asia and offers Riviera and Belize owners an unparalleled level of after-sales service and support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

For the fourth consecutive year, R Marine South Australia was named the overall Riviera Dealership of the Year for the Australia and New Zealand region.

“Representing the luxury Riviera marque is not just a job for Paul Harrop and the team at R Marine South Australia – they live and breathe boating and this is evidenced by the close relationships they have with their South Australian-based clients,” says Riviera’s Dealer Relationship Manager Peter Welch. “Just one example of their commitment to the Riviera lifestyle is the hugely successful Riviera Port Lincoln Experience in March this year – the largest Riviera blue-water cruising-in-company event ever held in South Australian waters.”

The 2015 Sales Excellence by a Dealer Award was presented to high-performing R Marine Crawley at Runaway Bay on the Gold Coast.

“We have an extremely dedicated team at R Marine Crawley who spend a great deal of time getting to know our customers and who understand the importance of listening and then delivering to their personal boating needs,” says R Marine Crawley Principal Dealer Peter Crawley. “My entire R Marine Crawley team deserves credit for their commitment to delivering exceptional customer care that ensures owning a Riviera or Belize is such an enjoyable experience.”

Queensland’s R Marine Jones located at Riviera’s waterfront facility at Coomera on the Gold Coast was awarded the 2015 award for Service Excellence.

In accepting the award, Australia’s longest-serving Riviera dealer and multiple award-winner Randall Jones congratulated his team on their dedication and commitment to meeting the service needs of Riviera and Belize owners.

“Our commitment to our valued family of owners – from Australia, New Zealand and from right around the world – is that we will keep improving – we will continue to grow our high-quality team, we will continue to provide the highest levels of customer care, and we will continue to build innovative, practical, robust and premium-quality luxury motor yachts that have positioned Riviera amongst the best in the world,” says Longhurst.
