Riviera has continued to expand its dealer network, with the appointment of Riviera Brisbane in Cleveland, Queensland.

The family-owned and operated business will officially open in early July.

Riviera Brisbane’s joint dealer principals, Rod and Ben Crawley have had more than 45 years combined sales and marketing experience and have had multiple Rivieras, having owned seven Rivieras since 1990, including two 34s, a 38, 48-01, 43, 47, 51 and a 56.

Rod’s wife Julie and their son Ben have more than 42 years combined sales and marketing experience.

“We will service south-east Queensland and support our clients based in north Queensland. We aim to provide absolute impeccable service from when they buy the boat to when they sell the boat,” they said.

“We know Riviera boats extremely well; we know how they perform, we have spent months on board at a time cruising between the Gold Coast and the Whitsundays,” said Rod. “We know how to live on board, how to cruise on them and how to fish on them and how to diagnose faults or problems should they arise. So we believe Riviera Brisbane can offer our customers first-hand experience on owning and enjoying a beautiful Riviera.

“We will be offering a full valet service for cleaning and maintenance, servicing and provisioning, providing a walk-on, walk-off service.”

Rod said Raby Bay Harbour in Cleveland was an ideal location for Riviera Brisbane because it was a large boating community and was only a 30 minute drive south of Brisbane CBD.

“There are lovely cruising waters in Moreton Bay and we saw the need for a Riviera dealer in this area to service the growing Riviera fleet in greater Brisbane.,” he said.
