The new Riviera 50 Enclosed Flybridge will make its Queensland boat show premiere at the Gold Coast International Marine Expo later this week.
Riviera chairman and owner Rodney Longhurst said the new 50 Enclosed Flybridge was bristling with surprises and innovation.
“In a first for Riviera, the 50 offers twin transom doors in the cockpit to allow better access from both the port and starboard sides,” Longhurst said.
“The large cockpit features lounge seating with integrated and interchangeable table to provide a versatile alfresco entertaining area, while an island storage centre offers space for an optional barbecue or live bait tank making this vessel the ideal on-water entertainer or sportfisher.”
Also premiering at the expo will be the newest addition to Riviera’s SUV collection – the stunning new 515 SUV on show for the very first time ahead of its world release at the Riviera Festival of Boating in May next year.
Bearing Riviera’s classic hallmark design, the new 515 SUV has been crafted with Riviera’s rich-heritage in mind. The new vessel combines the high performance, bluewater cruising and fish raising abilities of the classic Flybridge and the single-level leisurely entertaining features of the popular Sport Yacht series.
Standard power is the new generation and fuel-efficient twin Cummins QSC Zeus 600 pod drives. Optional power is a choice of twin Volvo Penta IPS 800s or IPS 900 pod drives. All engine options feature joystick control for close quarters manoeuvring.
Along with the 50 Enclosed Flybridge and 515 SUV, Riviera’s impressive under cover, red carpet on-water display during this week’s expo will feature the 43 Open Flybridge, 5800 Sport Yacht, 5000 Sport Yacht Next Generation model with Zeus, 3600 Sport Yacht, new 565 SUV, and 445 SUV.
“The three day expo is held right here at Riviera’s 14-hectare state-of-the-art Coomera facility and the neighbouring Gold Coast City Marina,” Longhurst said.
“For the first time in the expo’s history there will be a range of seminars and demonstrations on offer, and we are proud to showcase our world-class facility within which a static display will be staged where Riviera enthusiasts will see first-hand how our world-class, luxurious Riviera boats are crafted.”
Riviera’s Experience Centre will also be open for the duration of the three-day event, showcasing the new range of exclusive Riviera clothing and merchandise, and the latest interior design and soft furnishings packages.
There will also be experts from Riviera’s Aftermarket and Genuine Parts Centre on hand to advise Riviera owners regarding preventative maintenance issues and helpful tips.
