In May earlier this year, Rivergate Marina & Shipyard was honoured at the 2014 Superyacht Industry Awards, having won at the 2012 Australian Marine Industry Export and Superyacht Awards. This success has seen the business go from strength to strength.
The Superyacht Industry Awards are presented annually to reward the outstanding achievements of Australian marine industry exporters. These awards highlight and recognise the achievements of businesses and individuals within the superyacht sector in Australia.
Steven Fisher, head of Rivergate’s international department and Alexandra Lovell, marketing and administration, both attended this year’s awards. The night was a great success and Rivergate Marina & Shipyard was again awarded Superyacht Industry of the Year- Service Provider.
This award recognises a business’s services to the superyacht industry. The award focuses on highlighting how the entrant’s business has supported the superyacht industry in Australia; the structure of the business; how the business’s service provides support to the superyacht sector; what the business’s key ‘ingredients’ are; and how the business’s marketing strategy drives and encourages commerce in the superyacht sector.
Andrew Cannon, Rivergate Manager said, “To receive this award for a second time is a great honour and a true reflection of the hard work that our team at Rivergate demonstrates on a daily basis.
“In the last year, Rivergate’s international team has visited countries throughout the Pacific, Asia, USA and Europe to contribute in bringing trade to the Australian economy – within 2013, these visits have provided in excess of 12 million dollars into the Australian economy.”
Rivergate Marina & Shipyard is now Australia and the South Pacific’s leading premier superyacht refit and project management destination. Rivergate has established a business model bringing together other facilities in the region in conjunction with its own facility to offer superyachts of all sizes the ability to carry out their refit requirements in Australia.
At the awards, Steven Fisher, was also awarded Superyacht Industry Champion of the Year.
Steven commented, “What a compliment it is to receive such a prestigious award. To represent Rivergate in winning the Service Provider of the Year and to then be nominated by my industry peers for Superyacht Industry Champion is, to me, the most successful outcome I could have asked for on the night.”
