Riviera Syndication will launch its new Sydney/Gold Coast/Hamilton Island 5800 Sport Yacht at Sanctuary Cove.

This boat, to be based at Sanctuary Cove, will spend 10 weeks each winter in Hamilton Island and 10 weeks each summer in Sydney.

Riviera Syndication managing director John Russell said this boat had been extremely well received by the market with seven out of the 10 shares already sold. “For the Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve week we plan to use that as a co-operative week where the owners can come on board together to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Sydney and we will have a skipper on board,” he said.

Shares in the new 5800 Sport Yacht cost $A239,000 each plus a share of the annual ongoing costs.

The boat has been personalised with added extras including a rear-facing lounge in the cockpit, a kayak, a centre console tender with 20hp engine, an additional two-berth cabin with its own ensuite, air-conditioning, television and stereo. “The additional two-berth cabin is popular with families as it gives children a separate living area,” he said.

Riviera Syndication owners also receive an individual three-day training session on board the boat with a skipper to ensure the owners are confident with the vessel.
