Best Boat Name Competition
BOAT NAME COMPETITION WINNER!
Congratulations to José Contreras for this entry ‘Bimini’.
José said his wife and three sons helped him choose the name ‘Bimini’ because it was the first place they visited in their Riviera 51. “We bought the boat on December 2009 in Florida, USA, and I sailed from north Florida to Miami (640 miles). After that, I docked the boat in a marine during December. On December 28th we went to Bimini Island in The Bahamas for six days. It was a wonderful trip where we found all the great style and performance that this Riviera 51 has.
“After that we went to Colorado to skiing and I remember one night while we were dining and talking about the name of our new boat, my youngest son, Julio, said ‘I have an idea... the name could be "Bimini" because it was the first place that we enjoyed with the boat’. We looked each other, and at the same time we all said, "Yes". That is how we chose the name for our boat.
We have travelled more than 600 hours with our Riviera, and we are sure that our next boat will be again, a Riviera.”
