The Buying Process.

Depending on your level of experience and research, the new or pre-owned boat buying experience can vary dramatically!

At R Marine Sydney we’re on hand to guide you step by step through the process and to make sure you select the best possible boat for your budget. The more information you can give us the better, and often past experience can be the best guide. If it’s your first boat, we can help you navigate the range and market so you select something suitable for you and the family.

Buying a new boat

Riviera have an extensive range designed and produced off the back of years of experience and market feedback - and there are boats to suit all types of uses!

Initial Contact

When you first make contact, whether over the phone or in person we’ll be asking you plenty of questions. You may already know what you’re looking for but if not then understanding your family size, intended use, prior experience and budget can all help.

Viewing the Models

While we don’t stock all models at all times, we do have access to them. We can work out a plan to get you the information you need, and get you on board a vessel in a reasonable timeframe so you can quickly figure out what suits you.

Build list and options selection

Once you choose your model, there are many options both factory and custom which can customize your boat and your experience. We’ll help you with options selection and choosing a setup which is suitable for your needs.

The Build Process

Many of our new boats are built to order, and a trip to the Riviera factory on the Gold Coast is well worth the effort!

Join us for a day to see the factory in operation, your boat in build, meet some of the key staff and really get an understanding of what is involved in the production of these world-class vessels. Often the selection of interior colours and furnishings for your boat is tied in to this trip and we spend some time with the interior consultation team.

Completion of the build

Once the boat is finished and checks complete, the boat is either transported back to NSW on your behalf via skipper, or you can take delivery in QLD if you prefer. Many owners opt to do this first trip with the skipper, it’s a great way to get to know your new boat.

Delivery and handover

Riviera design user friendly, cutting edge boats, and there are a huge number of systems on board. The handover process is in depth, covering off the onboard systems (by their respective specialists, in electrical and mechanical, as well as general care and maintenance, using and driving the boat. The handover as in depth and takes as long as it takes until you are comfortable.

Ongoing support

Probably the most critical part of your dealer selection, is how well they handle ongoing support. We are there to assist with anything related to the boat, and we have mobile shipwright and mechanical staff who can assist you with upgrades or warranty whenever required.

Enjoying your boat

One of the great things about Riviera ownership is the joining the family of Riviera owners. You’ll meet great people and have the chance to join in organized social events and cruises throughout the year. Get to know your boat, safely cruise longer distances with a group and have a great time!
