Australia’s largest luxury boat builder, Riviera, has completed the hull lay-up on the fourth of its flagship Riviera 70 models in the week that the first 70 left for its new home in Vanuatu.

With five of these giant cruisers on order, the company has devoted a special building to the construction of these magnificent cruisers.
