Riviera reopens Experience Centre on the Gold Coast
Boating enthusiasts and Riviera owners can now chose designer clothing, and interior and electronics fitouts, all under one roof.
Australian luxury boatbuilder, Riviera, said everything from
distinctive clothing and dinnerware to an impressive $150,000
marine electronics display is now available to boat owners at its Gold Coast-based Experience Centre.
Riviera recently reopened the Experience Centre, based at the company’s manufacturing facility at Coomera, following a refurbishment.
"As you step inside the Experience Centre you will be in awe of the thousands of colour and fabric samples on offer in the
design studio," said Riviera.
The company said its resident interior designer, Vivienne Sales, has helped hundreds of Riviera owners with interior colour selections over the past seven years, and is available upon appointment.
"She will discuss your personal needs and help you select your interior décor from bedspreads, soft furnishings and blinds to quality crafted dinnerware and cutlery," said Riviera.
The boatbuilder said customers are offered a unique buying experience with friendly and qualified staff happy to help, whether it is refitting or upgrading an existing boat, choosing an interior décor for a brand-new boat or
suite of state-of-the-art navigation equipment.
The electronics department, said Riviera, is second to none, with everything from desalination equipment, thermal imaging cameras, personal safety aids to the latest in technology, such as flatscreen televisions, onboard entertainment systems and underwater lights.
Riviera said R Electronics managing director, Errol Cain, has fitted electronics to thousands of powerboats and has been associated with Riviera for more than 25 years.
"There is nowhere else that has the range that the Experience Centre has and it is designed primarily for Riviera owners, however, we also cater to
owners of other
brands," said Cain.
"We can customise your boat from the Experience Centre, giving it the personalised touch — people can come here to be immersed in the Riviera lifestyle," he said.
Store manager, Robyn Collins, said people can choose from a huge selection of matching accessories for any boat from high-quality unbreakable (clear polycarbonate
Strahl) embossed glassware
modern, brushed photo frames and wine coolers.
"There is a range of matching dinnerware including bowls, plates, platters, cutlery and glassware," said Collins.
For the bathroom, Riviera says there are plush Egyptian cotton towels and hand towels, as well as luxurious
monogrammed bath robes.
"The full range of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing
has been uniquely
by Riviera’s designers and includes sunglasses, shoes, dress shirts, spray jackets and hats, all sporting
the Riviera motif," said the company.
Riviera said there is also a spare parts service catering for those owners who are upgrading or refurbishing their boats or simply need to replace a part.
The Riviera Experience Centre is open from Monday to Thursday, 10am to 4pm, and Friday by appointment.
Riviera said to make an appointment with Errol Cain or Vivienne Sales in the Experience Centre, phone Robyn Collins on (07) 5561 7900.
