        Know Your Boat

        The Right Way To Fuel Your Boat

        By October 15, 2021 No Comments

        Fuelling your boat can be a time-consuming process, and like any job you do regularly, it is easy to start taking shortcuts. What many skippers seem to forget is that re-fueling a boat can be a dangerous activity, so safe fueling measures need to be adhered to.

        It is vital to shut down the engines and make sure the boat is tied securely to the dock before you begin pumping. Next, make sure all hatches and doors are closed to prevent fumes from entering the boat to avoid the risk of combustion. Although it may be tempting to use a tennis ball or another object to hold the trigger in place, you must always handle the pump as overflow often results in spills which is a fineable offense.

        It is important to understand how your vessel consumes fuel at different speeds to plan longer trips safely and accurately. Having a Riviera that is IPS driven generally results in slightly better fuel economy, with the 5400 Sport Yacht achieving efficient cruising speed at 26 knots consuming roughly 270 litres per hour. However, at lower displacement speeds, the 50 Sports Motor Yacht in the MAN V-drive option edges out its IPS counterpart, achieving a range of 2060 nautical miles compared to 1750 nautical miles based on a 3300 litre capacity.

        If you have any questions about the fuel consumption of your particular boat, safe fuelling practices, or are unsure whether you are getting the best fuel economy out of your Riviera, our team at R Marine Sydney is more than happy to assist.

        We highly recommend using R Marine Sydney Fuel Treatment.

          From the point of view of your dealership I was astounded by the professionalism shown and wonder as to what level of service could be expected when purchasing a million dollar boat if the service we received when purchasing a second hand vessel was so fabulous. This is our fourth Riviera and along with three other cruisers we have dealt with a number of brokers from the good to the very stupid and I can attest that Riviera Sales, Rushcutters Bay are so far in front of the rest, it is remarkable. The attention to detail both small and large was incredible, the boat being presented clean and ready to go, the beautiful engraved plaque in our name and the ‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude are attributes rarely found in today’s market place.

          Gregory I Freeman and Mary Freeman, Queensland

 amazing experience. Thanks so much for helping us make this happen - I am so proud to be finally part of the Riv community.

          Scott Sach

          Eva and I would like to convey our sincere appreciation to all at Riviera Sales Rushcutters Bay, who very professionally and caringly assisted us through the total sales process with our purchase of ‘Plan-B’.
          As you are aware we are being assisted by Riviera Sales in rectifying a few minor problems which recently became evident and unlike some other sales companies that adopt an attitude of “we’ve got your money see you later” Riviera after sales service and caring attitude is very impressive to the point where we are not only encouraged to come back to Riviera Sales but also to inform our many friends of our good experience.

          Phillip and Eva Southcombe, New South Wales

          Firstly, I have been so seriously impressed with all of my dealings with your organisation. All matters have been handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. Nothing is a problem and a client, like me, gets the very clear feeling that you can always rely on solid ‘after sales service’. You have it down right and it is very refreshing.

          Ken J Stevens, New South Wales

          Clare and I would also like to take this opportunity to extend our thanks for all your excellent help and service. We have had more than our fair share of dealings with boat brokers so we are more than qualified to judge you are an exception to the rule!
          Everyone in your organization was helpful. It was most unfortunate that the first boat fell through but it turned out for the best and we appreciated [the salesman's] integrity and obvious concern in difficult circumstances. His attention to detail was exemplary and our boat was handed over to us in immaculate condition and he spent a very long time arranging everything and explaining it all to us personally.

          Clare and Ian Fraser, Queensland

          We cannot speak highly enough of the whole Riviera experience, from the day we walked in the door to actually receiving the boat. It’s rare in this day and age to go through a whole experience without finding something to fault, however our experience with you achieved this.

          John and Chrisn Hickey, Victoria

          First of all I would like to thank you for the respect you showed me and your professionalism. You went out of your way arranging numerous details for me regarding the Riviera 38; picking me up from my hotel, arranging the boat lift and sea trial and even organizing a day at the Sydney Boat Show. [Thank you for] recommending Sam Wood a skipper, to bring my boat from Sydney NSW to Buddina Qld. The boat arrived in pristine condition.

          I would highly recommend anyone looking to buy or sell a Riviera to contact you direct.

          Once again thank you.

          Adam Ashby

          I felt I was treated with the utmost courtesy and professionalism at all stages and it was and still is a pleasure to deal with you and your team.

          Michael Dane, New South Wales

          We really appreciate the ‘extra mile’ that all at Riviera have taken to get us a replacement boat so quickly- particularly at this busy Christmas period.
          As previous Riviera owners we appreciated your build quality and continuous design improvements and wish to make special mention of the team at Rushcutters Bay who are very professional sales consultants-very helpful and knowledgeable without being ‘pushy’; it is a pleasure doing business with them.

          Roger and Sally Pratt
