Riviera has strengthened our European profile with the appointment of Dutch international yacht broker Best Boats as an official representative for our premium Riviera and Belize motor yachts.
With an extensive presence in the Netherlands, along with offices in Germany and Belgium, Best Boats is ideally positioned to provide support, assistance and social opportunities to our owners in the region and boating enthusiasts looking to join ‘The Riviera Family’.
Having formalised the partnership in recent months, Best Boats Dealer Principal Arie Drenth and his team joined Riviera staff and fellow dealers at our stunning display at the Cannes Yachting Festival that included European premieres of the 39 Open Flybridge and 545 SUV.
Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst said he was delighted Best Boats would be representing the company in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg.
“Arie and his team are not only passionate but extremely knowledgeable about luxury motor yachts, making them the ideal partner to showcase our luxury motor yachts in Northern Europe,” he said.
“We have a growing representative network across Europe and the addition of Best Boats to our list of partners is a key step in extending our capability to service our existing owners and introduce our new range of premium motor yachts to even more people.
“It was great to see Best Boats embrace the chance to be part of our Cannes showcase for the first time and we look forward to working closely with them for many years to come.”
Mr Drenth said Riviera’s reputation for quality was renowned throughout Europe.
“With motor yachts that are tested in one of the toughest offshore environments in the world, Riviera’s luxurious and durable models represent quality you can rely on,” he said.
“The brand is internationally renowned for its unparalleled quality, excellent materials, functionality and luxurious finishes, which is not only reassuring for their owners but crucial for dealers such as ourselves.
“I became aware of Riviera’s inherent qualities when I was asked to sell a 5000 Sport Yacht for one of our clients. I elected to drive the yacht myself from our client’s home some distance to our dealership and as a result of this experience offshore – the boat’s performance, handling ride and incredible feeling of reassurance – I decided I really wanted to represent Riviera to our valued clients.
“We are thrilled to have joined forces with Riviera and can’t wait to introduce more Europeans to the fantastic range offered by Australia’s most-award luxury motor yacht builder.”
