Informative factory tours

Experience a unique behind-the-scenes insight into our world-class construction processes with a fully narrated factory tour via The Riviera Express train ride or air-conditioned mini-bus.

The Riviera Express factory tour by train is a very popular feature of the Festival of Boating and in 2017 will provide an even greater insight into Riviera’s world-class luxury motor yacht manufacturing facility on Australia’s Gold Coast – the largest of its type in the Southern Hemisphere.

Step aboard the interior prototype of the luxurious, long-range new Riviera Sports Motor Yacht prior to her World Premiere in mid-2017. You can book an inspection with your Riviera dealer.

The internal prototype is now complete at our world-class facility and resembles the interior of an actual Sports Motor Yacht.

We look forward to welcoming you to the home of Riviera on Australia’s Gold Coast
from 17-19 March.
