    it without you guys.

  • Throughout my experience of shipyards around the world, I found Rivergate’s staff to be equal in craftmanship and expertise. Most outstanding was Rivergate’s ability to coordinate multiple tradesmen and projects in a seamless, timely fashion.

  • I couldn’t be happier with the extensive refit of M.Y. “KERI LEE” performed at the Rivergate shipyard.

    The excellent facilities and the dedication of Steve Fisher and his team at Rivergate in restoring the motor yacht to better then new condition is a credit to them. This work was performed on time, in budget and to the highest of standards. There is a huge difference to refitting a superyacht compared with most other boats. The yard needs to have a culture associated with quality and team work, otherwise you can end up with some very ordinary work. The Rivergate team had the ability to work closely with the yacht’s Captain and Engineer and with Tom Davies, our Project Manager. It was this cooperative approach which impressed me and made sure that all aspects of the yacht’s refit were properly coordinated and carried out to the highest standard.

    The cooperation between the painters, Malouf Marine, and Rivergate was extremely impressive, which in my opinion ended in probably one of the best superyacht repaints performed in Australia.

    My thanks to all the Rivergate team for the respect they showed and the great workmanship they performed on M.Y. “KERI LEE”. I would have no hesitation in recommending Rivergate to any Owner or Captain wanting to do their refit work Australia.

  • Before heading back to Auckland I stopped into Brisbane to cut up the journey and enjoyed a stay at the Rivergate Marina and Shipyard. The staff were some of the most attentive I have experienced and really went out of their way to make sure that our stay was more productive and enjoyable. We were able to save about 30 per cent on our fuel bill before leaving Oz.

  • The marina staff are amazing. Never was any request to big to handle and every request was dealt with immediately. It was sad to say goodbye with so many smiling faces on the dock, but hopefully it won’t be the last time that we see you all…
