Talk about playing to a packed house: Riviera Yachts recently welcomed 400 people to a four-day Festival of Boating on Australia’s Gold Coast that included workshops, a gala evening and the unveiling of the builder’s new 515 SUV model.

“The festival is not just about selling boats,” brand and communications director Stephen Milne stated in a press release. “The festival is all about bringing the Riviera family together, sharing experiences and knowledge and showcasing our world-class boats.”

Even still, Riviera says more than $12 million in sales were finalized during the four days, with more sales expected after sea trials that participants scheduled for upcoming weeks. Several of the orders received are for the 515 SUV, and one was for the 6000 Sport Yacht that is scheduled to premiere at the Sydney International Boat Show this summer.
