Australia’s most awarded luxury boat builder, Riviera, has added another major trophy to its collection, winning the Australian Boat of the Year at the marine industry national awards ceremony on Thursday night.

This is the second consecutive Boat of the Year award for Riviera.

The Riviera 4400 Sport Yacht, with revolutionary Volvo Penta IPS propulsion, took the award against strong competition across the entire Australian boating industry.

Phil Candler, Riviera’s General Manager New Product Development, said the entire staff at the company’s headquarters on Queensland’s Gold Coast was delighted with the win.

“It is a great endorsement of our commitment to innovation and continuing focus on quality,” he said.

The win come on the heels of the Riviera 47 Enclosed Flybridge winning the Modern Boating Cruiser of the Year award announced just four weeks ago.

Last year, Riviera won Boat of the Year with its 4700 Sport Yacht.

Every model in the Riviera Sport Yacht range has won awards. The first, the 3600 Sport Yacht took Modern Boating Cruiser of the Year in 2006 and went on to win the Christofle Asia Motor Yacht under 40 ft in 2007. The 4700 Sport first won the Modern Boating Cruiser of the Year in 2007 and went on to win AMIF Boat of the Year.

The company yesterday announced the next model in the range, the four-cabin 5800 Sport Yacht with triple Volvo Penta IPS propulsion. The boat will be launched early next year.

The Riviera 4400 Sport Yacht, launched at the Sydney International Boat Show in August last year, is a two-cabin/two bathroom model that continues the al fresco lifestyle design concepts first introduced on the award winning Riviera 3600 Sport Yacht in 2005.
