NEWS - Riviera’s got the X Factor

Luxury boatbuilder Riviera says it will show Australia it has the X Factor when the company stars in episode one of Channel Seven’s new TV talent show The X Factor that goes to air tonight.

Four of Riviera’s latest models from its Sport Yacht range will be seen escorting the X Factor judges, singer Natalie Imbruglia, former Australian Idol winner Guy Sebastian, radio host Kyle Sandilands and Irish singer Ronan Keating to the first round of auditions at Sydney’s Luna Park.

Riviera’s Director of Brand and Communications, Stephen Milne said it was an honour to be invited to star in Channel Seven’s new TV talent show.

"It was a fantastic opportunity and four passionate Riviera owners generously made their boats available for the X Factor shoot," said Milne.

"We certainly put the Sport Yachts through their paces in Sydney Harbour manoeuvring around harbour traffic and running in line from the heads to the Opera House on what was a beautiful, clear winter’s day — perfect for boating," he said.

The first episode of The X Factor will be screened at 7.30pm EST.
