Fleet of seven Rivieras to star at Auckland On-Water Boat Show


AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – Riviera will present a fleet of seven gleaming new motor yachts at the Auckland On Water Boat Show from 27 to 30 September.

The showcase at Viaduct Harbour, staged in conjunction with New Zealand’s Riviera and Belize representative R Marine Flagship, features supreme examples of three collections including the sophisticated 6000, 5400 and 4800 Sport Yachts, the blue-water 52 Enclosed and 43 Open Flybridge models and the sporty and adventurous 525 and 445 SUVs.

The weekend festivities will also include a special Auckland evening of celebration for the Riviera family.

Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst said: “New Zealand has a proud reputation for embracing the motor yachting lifestyle, and I am delighted that Riviera luxury motor yachts have been a vital part of that lifestyle for 38 years. In that time Rivieras have truly been proven in the wide range of New Zealand boating conditions.

“Our Auckland showcase will reflect how our world-class team of designers, engineers and boatbuilders continually strive for excellence, for exceptional blue-water sea-keeping capabilities and for a totally fulfilling boating experience.”

“Each one of these seven motor yachts is a brilliant example of Riviera’s evolution and constant refinement across our five collections.”
