Riviera Aftermarket ensures insurance claims

Coomera, QLD: In the unfortunate and often stressful event of an engineering related insurance claim, Riviera Aftermarket and Service are the best team to turn to.  They know Riviera boats inside and out and being based at the factory with a team of factory trained and seasoned tradespeople, they can ensure a satisfactory resolution.

Aftermarket manager Michael Swain said the most common insurance claim was when a boat had run aground and the damage could be anywhere from minor to major repair work.

“The Gold Coast’s Broadwater is very shallow in places and the sand banks keep moving so many people have damaged their boats when they run aground,” he said.

“We can repair any damage from gel coat repairs, bow rails, stainless steel, structural damage, glasswork, gears, propellers, shafts and rudders.

“As a genuine Riviera service provider we can undertake the engine alignments and sea trial to meet Riviera specifications because we are the only team of professionals who have access to the original sea trial reports, which allow us to bring the vessel back to its original specifications.

“We can also conduct a vibration test using a vibration meter and we always adhere to Riviera’s strict construction and quality assurance guidelines.

“No job is too big or too small and our dedicated team of technicians will travel interstate and overseas to undertake insurance work, as well as any other maintenance and repair work.

“Riviera Aftermarket and Service is the best insurance for your insurance claim.”

Michael and his team of eight have 90 years combined Riviera experience and are fully qualified in a range of fields including marine electrical, engineering, mechanical and boat building.

Riviera Aftermarket and Service have recently relocated to the waterfront area within Riviera’s 14 hectare state-of-the-art facility, thus giving them easy access to all facilities under the one roof, including Riviera genuine spare parts, as well as the opportunity to take advantage of shared resources including Riviera’s qualified craftsmen.
