Clarke Energy Partners With Premium Motor Yacht Builder Riviera

Clarke Energy provide power solutions across various market segments, and the marine industry is beginning to see the impact of our leadership position in power generation through the unveiling of an new partnership with Riviera.

The partnership announcement coincides with one of the marine industry’s premier events – the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show 2022 where both Riviera and Clarke Energy will have a strong presence.

Riviera is the largest luxury motor yacht boat builder in the Southern Hemisphere and for the past 42 years has worked with an alternative power generation supplier. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has presented multiple supply and demand complexities, which in turn have created new opportunities.

Clarke Energy and Kohler have now become a supplier of marine power generation to Riviera, delivering services, and assisting with Riviera’s production capacity during this difficult period.

Clarke Energy has approached the partnership with a can-do attitude and engaged closely with Riviera to balance design and technology updates, scope changes, leading industry standards and demanding build schedules with providing the best outcome to the yacht owner.

Josh Hughes from Riviera says:

“Riviera is proud to partner with an industry leading company like Clarke Energy as the sole power supplier for our new 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition. Clarke Energy and Kohler will provide this new yacht with reliable and premium power generation units with accessible ongoing support.”

Clarke Energy is exclusively providing the Kohler 13.5EFKOZD (50hz) and 16EKOZD (60hz) to Riviera for their new Sport Yacht, the 4600 Platinum Edition. Some of the features these engines share include:

  • 4 cycle naturally aspirated
  • 3 cylinders
  • Direct injection
  • 17:1 compression ratio
  • Low oil pressure shutdown
  • High engine temperature shutdown
  • Disposable oil and fuel filters
  • Certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conform to Tier III marine auxiliary

Riviera plans to deliver 24 of these vessels a year working alongside Clarke Energy’s well established Kohler trained channel partner network, which has locations across the South Pacific Ocean, and almost 1000 sales and service locations globally. Channel partners are perfectly positioned and have capacity to provide spare parts, extensive training, service and support from Kohler experts to Riviera.

 Chris Leane, Kohler Channel Partner Manager says:

“It is an exciting step for Clarke Energy to announce a new partnership with Australia’s largest motor yacht builder and a market leader. This opportunity is especially exciting for Clarke Energy and Kohler: We are able to provide Riviera with a superior product, availability, and ongoing pre- and post-sale support.”
