Another Great Captiva Island Rendesvous

We just returned from an awesome weekend with clients and friends at our annual Captiva Island cruising Rendezvous to the beautiful South Seas Resort & Plantation. This might have been one of our best years yet!

We juggled our time between cruising, golfing, fishing, beaching, and pooling (Ok, I made up that last word, but you get the idea- it was a great weekend!)

Overall the atmosphere was relaxed, the weather was perfect and the company was great. It’s always a pleasure to turn our clients into friends through quality time spent out on the water.  Below are some highlights of the trip (click here to see the complete photo album).

To this year’s guests we had a wonderful time and hope you all return next year, along with fresh new faces.

New Team Pictures

With the recent additions to our Sales and Business departments, it was time for new company photos. We had the perfect backdrop for the photo-shoot in our very own backyard, Marina Jack. Yesterday morning the whole team met on a beautiful 62′ Merritt Sportfish in the marina. The pictures came out great, if you don’t mind us saying so ourselves!



Wrap on the Yacht and Brokerage Show in Miami. Ole!

Our team just wrapped the Yacht and Brokerage Show in Miami! This is one of our favorite shows because it encompasses the exotic flavors of Miami, always bringing a fun and lighthearted energy to the show. Between Marquis’s world debut of its new 63′ Sport Yacht and the Mardi Gras themed dock party at the Riviera Display, it was a great weekend!

Riviera experienced great success at the show with six new boat sales totaling USD $10.4 million and further sales are expected following sea trials, proving that our U.S. market is on the rise! Woo hoo!

Among the sales were two 63 Enclosed Flybridges, two 53 Enclosed Flybridges, one 43 Open Flybridge and one 5000 Sport Yacht.

“The results from the show speak for themselves and I can honestly say that we should be very proud of the team in the US for ensuring all the boats on display looked first class. These significant results are testament to Riviera’s impeccable quality, design features and ‘built-to-last’ philosophy,” said Riviera Yachts USA director Chris McCafferty.
