On April 29, Australian luxury motor yacht builder Riviera launched its 6000th motor yacht at its world class production facility on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

The 950-strong Riviera team, all sporting exclusive shirts to commemorate this achievement, formed a guard of honour to mark the launch.

The yacht, an Iridium silver-hulled 5400 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition, will be delivered to long-time Sydney Australia based Riviera owners Peter and Denise Haig. The couple has owned 10 Riviera yachts since their first, a 38 Open Flybridge in 1988.

Riviera creates around 150 motor yachts per year, most of which are exported around the world. More than 800 Sport Yachts have been built since the first, a 3600, was launched in 2005.

Riviera will celebrate this milestone at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, May 23–26, with a record display of 12 luxury motor yachts, including the 6000th Riviera and the World Premiere of the very latest Riviera.
