The 2019 Riviera Australian and New Zealand Dealer Awards saw R Marine dealerships across three states and two countries honoured for their outstanding commitment to excellence in service and sales.
Victoria’s R Marine Jacksons were recognised twice in the 2019 awards with the prestigious Dealership of the Year and Service Excellence by a Dealership – while New Zealand’s R Marine Flagship was recognised with the Sales Excellence by a Dealership award.
In individual honours, Travis Edney from Gold Coast-based R Marine Crawley won the Service Excellence by an Individual award and R Marine Sydney’s Simon Don received the Sales Excellence by an Individual.
Riviera owner Rodney Longhurst said the award recipients embodied the outstanding service and expertise found across the R Marine network, which exclusively represents the region’s market leader in luxury motor yachts, Riviera and Belize throughout Australia and New Zealand.
“Riviera has a proud 39-year heritage of refining what is today one the world’s leading luxury motor yachts and the specialists at all R Marine dealerships ensure our new boat owners receive the outstanding customer service and ongoing technical care they deserve,” he said.
“With customer feedback a crucial criterium in many of the awards, it’s a credit to the recipients that they have been recognised by the most important judges we have when it comes to quality and service – our boat owners.
“Across the R Marine network, a team of more than 50 field service staff, a fleet of more than 30 mobile service vehicles and a combined 650 years of Riviera knowledge supports our owners daily.
“In addition, our leading network offers our owners more than 80 individual boating, educational and fun-filled social events each year in Australia and New Zealand – empowering a greater understanding and enjoyment of boating whilst enhancing the unique essence of the Riviera family of boat owners.”
“The men and women who make up our R Marine dealer network are the ultimate marine professionals.”
