No Limit For Riviera Aftermarket | Service

Nearly a year on, Riviera’s Aftermarket | Service Centre is proving a major benefit for many clients right around the world.

From local Riviera owners wanting antifoul to significant development work, the Centre is bustling.

Aftermarket Manager Michael Swain said: “Owners know they receive the full Riviera quality support in our Centre. Every member of our team is fully Riviera trained.”

The Centre recently completed a major development on a new Riviera 56 Enclosed Flybridge for a client in the Middle East. Valued at about AU$300,000, the work includes fitting a tuna tower, a hydraulic swim platform, a solid aft bulkhead to the flybridge including stainless steel awning window and door, similar to the Riviera 61 Enclosed Flybridge.

“We also fitted entirely new interior timber and upholstery,” said Michael. “The timber is a striking dark chocolate colour and the upholstery is cream colour with piping coloured to match the timber.”

Aftermarket also recently completed a refurbishment for local Riviera 51 owners Grahame and Biddy Stephenson.

“It brought a 51 Series I Enclosed up to 51 Series II specifications and gave the interior a whole new lease on life,” said Michael.

“Biddy Stephenson was incredibly excited. She was so proud. She wanted to show it to all their friends. In fact, a special railing we fitted to the swim platform was so popular we have since fitted another three!”

Aftermarket also fitted a tuna tower to a Riviera 43 Offshore Express for a local owner. Riviera’s stainless steel department began making the special towers about a year ago. One of the first was installed on Riviera’s own boat the 48 Offshore Express Fascination IV.

“We can do virtually anything a client requires,” explained Michael. “And we can now call on local clients. We have a specially fitted van and a utility vehicle so, for minor repairs and alternations, we can go to the client rather than them having to bring their boat to us.”
