We speak with Peter and Jan Gardner about their move from a Riviera 4400 Sport Yacht into a pre-owned late model Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht.

On the Riviera 4400 Sport Yacht  …

“Originally we stepped up from another smaller vessel of 5 years into the 4400SY which we bought off you guys and that gave us and extra cabin and then getting onboard a boat with IPS made a huge difference in the ability for easier docking. 

The diesel motors were a big plus moving from a petrol boat as well. So, we had the 4400SY for 3 years and it took us away with you guys on your trips to places such as, The Brisbane River, The RMC Winter Escape to Peel Island as well as the Lady Musgrave Experience.

Why the step up to the Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht …

“The latest technology, CZone, bigger engines with a lot more power. A couple of main things we really liked is the rear deck. The cockpit has a lot more room and seating. A big plus for me is the tender garage. I’m looking forward to the ease of being able to launch the tender from the back rather than the davit on the bow.”

On the purchase, service and handover from RMC  …

“Fine, good as gold! We found our new boat, the 4800 was presented nice and clean. Compliments to Adam who cleaned the outside, he did a nice job with that and Jo for taking care of the interior. Also, Michael and Ben Leigh-Smith have been very good to work with.”

On the RMC Experience trips away you’ve experienced so far  …

“For sure, meeting other like-minded people in boating. The trips themselves are really beneficial from a learning point of view. I have definitely gained a lot of experience and the general boating is fantastic really.”

On how you’ll be enjoying your new Riviera first up  …

“Locally we really like Jumping Pin & Couran Cove. 
Jan and I want to spend a few days floating around at Peel Island and up to the wrecks at Tangalooma. We can’t wait to use her and do a bit more of that.”

Congratulations Peter and Jan. 

From all of us at R Marine Crawley, we’re really happy you’ve found your new boat through us and we wish you many safe and happy moments onboard.
