Riviera Yachts

Welcome to the largest luxury yacht building facility in the Southern Hemisphere, our purpose-built, state-of-the-art 16.8 hectare site at Coomera, Gold Coast, Australia. Here, on the largest island continent on Earth, totally surrounded by three oceans and four seas, we build on the renowned Australian qualities of strength, practicality and love of water. Then we test our designs in some of the world’s toughest offshore conditions. Our 800-strong Riviera team applies lessons learnt more than 41 years and the building of over 5700 luxury motor yachts. Handcrafting yachts internationally feted for their peerless quality, build materials, structural strength, ease of operation and fine luxury finish. Today, Riviera exports around 55% of our annual production to a global dealer network spanning every continent. We design and build luxury motor yachts from 39 to 78 feet in length across five distinct model collections.

Owners can choose from the proven blue-water Flybridge range, stylish and sophisticated Sport Yachts, the sporty and adventurous SUV series, long-range new Sports Motor Yacht designs, the luxurious new Motor Yacht or the classic Belize Motor Yachts. New models designed to satisfy our owners’ ever evolving needs are forever on our minds and drawing boards. It’s all part of a superior culture of customer care which goes way beyond exemplary after-sales support and maintenance.

When you acquire a Riviera, you join a family of fellow owners worldwide, people who relish each other’s company, sharing adventures and advancing their boating knowledge and experiences in harmony with us.

Utilizing the finest Construction Methods: State-of-the-art digital kitting is utilized to precisely cut all fiberglass and structural foams for the lamination process to ensure that each component fits perfectly. The finest quality joinery is created by exacting CNC precision-cut timbers with all cabinets hand built by master craftspeople. Each mold is thoroughly inspected, cleaned and waxed before the initial application of isophthalic gelcoat is sprayed to provide a high gloss and superior water and fade resistant finish. Closed molding techniques are utilized to manufacture small parts where these precise components require lighter weight and very high quality finishes. The superior internal varnished finishes are achieved by a robotic varnish machine which has a humidified drying room to cure the painted surface. Up to five coats of varnish are applied. Riviera hulls are hand-laid with multi or quad fiberglass matting over core materials such as foam and sealed with vinyl ester resin, due to its superior ability to withstand water absorption. Hull construction is a very intricate and skilled process and hand-laid fiberglass construction is far superior in strength to any other method. The hull and deck surface finishes have great impact resistance. A finished hull can be almost 20 mm thick – solid fiberglass below the waterline with great strength where it matters most. Major structural components of a Riviera yacht are manufactured from glass reinforced plastic (GRP) to give immense strength and service life to the yacht. To produce a high-strength and watertight connection, the joining of the hull and deck is a three-stage process that involves bonding, bolting and internal fiberglass strapping. All fuel tanks fitted to a Riviera yacht are manufactured from GRP with fire-retardant resin, have structural internal baffles for stability and are fiberglassed in place to create great structural strength. All wiring looms, air-conditioning and water lines are color-coded and tagged for precision and identification. Each yacht spends two days being prepared for sea trials and then 4 to 6 hours being put through its paces with an engineer, electrician and engine manufacturer’s representative onboard. From elegantly understated to magnificently bold, only the finest, hand-selected premium New Zealand leathers are used. Superior-grade timbers have been hand-selected including walnut, cherry, oak, teak and wenge to allow the personalization of your yacht. All exterior stainless steel is crafted from high-quality 316 grade which offers better overall corrosion-resistance properties. Riviera glass windscreens are fabricated in premium-grade curved glass and all windows offer resistance to thermal transfer. Every Riviera features durable and corrosion-resistant, anodized aluminum sliding side windows. Call us today for more information at 941-365-9095.
