It was good to see so many familiar faces at the recent Sanctuary Cove Boatshow it is always a great time to catch up with you and I appreciate the time you spend with us.
The show was closed for the first time that I can remember due to the extreme weather on the Thursday but re-opened Friday for the Sat & Sunday as per normal.
The show also re-affirmed that Riviera are here and here to stay for the long term, with a full line up of 13 x Riviera`s, 5 x Grand Banks`s and 5x Princess`s and people showing plenty of interest in the products.
It was also announced that there would be a NEW Riviera 50 Sport Yacht released with Cummins Pod drives at the Sydney show and a New line of Riviera Motor Yachts from 73`-85` It was also the perfect opportunity to introduce clients to the new management and talk about the future of the company and where they wish to be 10-20 years from now, "and that is building Riviera boats that are world class and value for dollar".

Such is the belief in the Riviera brand and our quality. Each and every one of these forward orders is creating an increased workload for our Coomera facility that is now back in full production.
