Riviera will premiere four world-class models at the 2019 Sydney International Boat Show as part of an exceptional nine-boat display. In the spotlight will be the new Riviera 545 SUV, boasting a full-beam master suite offering space and comfort that Rivieria is famous for.

Joining the four premiere models at the show is the 68 Sports Motor Yacht, 445 SUV, 43 Open Flybridge and 395 SUV and 39 Sports Motor Yacht. “Boating enthusiasts come from all over Australia, and many parts of the world, to witness our Sydney International Boat Show display and I believe they will be more impressed than ever this year,” Riviera Australia owner Rodney Longhurst said. “I would say the current range of yachts is the most refined that Riviera has ever created. Our 600-strong team strives every day to ensure that Riviera yachts are built as exceptionally as they look.”
