Riviera continues to expands its USA dealer network

Coconut Grove, Florida, USA: Riviera, Australia’s largest and most awarded luxury boat builder has continued to expand its Florida dealer network from Key West to Delray Beach.

Yachting Experts, owned by yachting industry veterans Frank and Betty De Varona were appointed as exclusive Riviera dealers in Florida’s Monroe and Miami/Dade counties in 2010 and also represent Riviera in Columbia.  Yachting Experts have just recently expanded their dealership to include the ‘Yachting Capital of the World’, Fort Lauderdale. 

Riviera Yachts International sales director Chris McCafferty said Yachting Experts were true ambassadors for Riviera.

“Frank and Betty’s new-boat knowledge is the best in the business and they go the extra mile to meet the individual needs of their customers.  What is most important is that they take the time to listen to their customers and are then able to best match their client’s needs to the right boat,” Mr McCafferty said.

“With the return of Riviera to private ownership in March of this year, and the need to expand our South Florida dealer network, it was a very easy decision to work with Yachting Experts and I am confident that Frank, Betty and the rest of the team will make the Fort Lauderdale area another thriving centre of Riviera social and boating activity for our owners.”

Yachting Experts president Betty De Varona said they were honoured to be representing Australia’s Riviera in South Florida.

“Riviera makes a fantastic line of top quality yachts that are perfect for boaters in South Florida and Latin America, who love boating with their whole family, fishing, cruising, and enjoying watersports.  We look forward to providing sales and service support to Riviera in Fort Lauderdale and surrounding areas,” she said.

Yachting Experts has more than 25 years of combined marine experience and is the exclusive dealer for Riviera Yachts and the Australian manufacturer’s new bespoke Belize Motoryacht series.

The latest models from Riviera, including Riviera’s new 445 SUV, 63 Enclosed Flybridge, 53 Enclosed Flybridge and 5000 Sport Yacht will be on display at the 2012 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show held from October 25 to 29, as well as a Belize Motoryacht display with details of the new 52 Sedan and Daybridge models.

Riviera offers 15 different models from 36 to 75 feet across four model series Flybridge, Sport Yacht, Offshore Express and the new SUV collection.
