Riviera Syndication, Australia’s largest and most awarded luxury boat manufacturer and exporter of Open and Enclosed Flybridge and Offshore Express models, Sport Yachts and Sport Cruisers, will launch its new Sydney/Gold Coast/Hamilton Island 5800 Sport Yacht at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show. This boat to be based at Sanctuary Cove will spend 10 weeks each winter in Hamilton Island and 10 weeks each summer in Sydney.
According to the John Russell, Riviera Syndication managing director, the new boat had been extremely well received by the market with seven out of the 10 shares already sold.
“We have got a permanent berth for the 5800 at Sanctuary Cove but every December and January we will take the boat to Sydney and each of the 10 owners will spend one week on board,” John said.
“For the Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve week we plan to use that as a co-operative week where the owners can come on board together to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Sydney and we will have a skipper on board.”
“In June, July and August the owners will have the chance to experience the idyllic waters of north Queensland’s Whitsunday Islands. They also have the chance to travel up to Hamilton Isl and on board with our skipper Jimmy Thorn.”
The yacht will feature several extras, including a rear facing lounge in the cockpit, a kayak, upmarket tender with 20hp engines and additional two berth cabins for kids.
“Riviera Syndication also includes a range of spare parts on board such as a fresh water pump so that in the event if a water pump did fail there is always a spare on board. From experience we have learnt that if you have a water pump fail on a boat, you have no toilet, no showers, no fresh water so at least with a spare it is simply a swap over and the owners experience no disruption to their leisure time.”
Riviera Syndication owners also receive an individual three day training session on board the boat with a skipper to ensure the owners are confident with the vessel.
