SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – Riviera proudly premiered the sporty and adventurous 395, 445 and 525 SUV yachts together with the Flagship 6000 Sport Yacht in a brilliant four-yacht showcase in partnership with dedicated Riviera and Belize representative Sun Country Marine at the San Diego Boat Show last weekend.
Sun Country Marine Vice President of Operations Greg Glogow, said he and his team were thrilled to showcase the very latest examples of Riviera’s design, craftsmanship and ultimate luxury to Californian motor yachting enthusiasts at Spanish Landing Park East.
“Riviera is internationally renowned for their craftsmanship and superior offshore ability. These are the qualities that drew Sun Country to Riviera and now our clients are experiencing a higher-level of yachting enjoyment” said Mr Glogow.
“The SUV and Sport Yacht Collection designs are distinctively different and offer incredible choice depending upon the type of boating and water sport pursuits our owners enjoy. However they both share that highly social, one-level living and entertaining design that is just made for our way of boating in California. You can open up the entire main deck of the yacht to connect the cockpit, galley and salon as one grand open-plan living space, giving everyone room to connect, relax, feast and celebrate. This level of appointments and amenity reflect the great Australian outdoor-entertaining ethos and we love to showcase this to our clients.
“Step below, and the luxe interiors of the accommodation deck create an elegant and inviting mood. At every turn you will notice fine, handcrafted cabinetry, exquisite finishes and attention to design and design that says… this is a boaters boat. The staterooms are a calm haven that allow you to escape and unwind.
“Sun Country Marine have taken the graceful exterior lines of these Riviera yachts and added our own flair with special painted finishes that make each of these yachts unique. When you own a Riviera yacht from Sun Country Marine your are making a personal statement that reflects your individual style.
“The simplicity of operation of a Riviera yacht takes boating into a new realm of ease. The latest technology allows confident and enjoyable boating courtesy of joystick steering for control and manoeuvrability, touch-screen digital switching and the Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit navigation aids are very intuitive.
“We were honoured to welcome California’s yachting enthusiasts aboard these outstanding Riviera yachts during the show,” concluded Mr Glogow.
