Coinciding with the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, Australia, R Marine Flagship have partnered with Riviera to bring their own show of luxury Riviera motor yachts to Auckland, May 21-23.

Called the Riviera Cove International Boat Show, invitations to attend ‘a tropical sanctuary of Riviera motor yachts in downtown Auckland’ have been extended to past, present and future Riviera owners.

Thirteen Riviera yachts, from 39 to 72 feet, across the Sport Yacht, SUV, Flybridge and Sport Motor Yacht collections will be available to step aboard.

“With continuous feedback from owners and interested parties, it was clear that the majority of people are still reluctant to travel internationally so it was an easy decision for us to make a call to invest in another show here in New Zealand,” said R Marine Flagship Dealer Principal Dean Horgan.

The three-day show will include a number of exclusive previews and fun events, including a live cross to Sanctuary Cove for a preview of the flagship of the SUV collection, the new, much anticipated 645 SUV, hosted by Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst and a panel of Riviera experts.

“There is much anticipation surrounding the release of the new 645 SUV, Riviera’s flagship model in their SUV range and a well-kept secret throughout its development and construction,” says Horgan. “It is an incredible looking boat, with the pre released rendered drawings not coming close to showing its actual stylish sleek lines.”


Other events include an invitation-only Riviera Ladies Lunch at Sails Restaurant on Friday May 21 and a tropical-themed preview party on the evening of Saturday 22 hosted by the Riv Island Bar at R Marine Flagship HQ on the water at Westhaven.

The show will also feature a full service display with Blue Water watermakers, Seakeeper gyros and Permateek synthetic decking, to name a few.
