With just days to go before the opening of the iconic Miami International Boat Show in Florida, the Riviera team is preparing an inspiring nine-yacht display.

The on-water display at the Miami Marine Stadium on Virginia Key during President's Day weekend from 15 to 19 February will showcase models from three Riviera collections. The display includes three models from Riviera's stylish and sophisticated Sport Yacht collection, three sporty and adventurous SUV models, two blue-water Flybridge models and the timeless classic Belize 54 Daybridge.

Chairman and owner Rodney Longhurst said: "We are delighted and proud to exhibit a range of distinctive and luxurious models at the Miami International Boat Show. This diverse range of designs cater to a wide range of motor yachting pursuits and cruising aspirations.

"We are particularly excited to announce that we will hold Americas Premieres for four stunning new models during 2018.

"These include our magnificent new 72 Sports Motor Yacht, the flagship Belize 66, our 395 SUV and another exciting new model under development at our yard in Australia.

"Our team at the Miami show will be available throughout the show to provide comprehensive details of these exciting new motor yachts."

He said the name Riviera was synonymous worldwide with ultra-luxury, superior design, and supreme blue-water sea-keeping capabilities.

"Our talented craftspeople ensure that the build calibre and fit and finish of each Riviera is second to none," he said. "We also partner with worldwide leaders in motor yacht design and engineering to offer yachts that stand out on the world stage."

Every model in the display features the very latest in marine technology, including Glass Cockpit navigation and systems monitoring as well as touch-screen CZone digital switching and joystick controls for superior handling and low-speed manoeuvring.

Each motor yacht features silky-smooth and whisper quiet Volvo Penta IPS pod drive propulsion. With Riviera, all Volvo Penta systems are covered by an industry-leading five-year warranty to complement the Riviera and Belize five-year structural warranty.
