Best Boat Name Competition
BOAT NAME COMPETITION WINNER!
Congratulations to Richard and Ellen Alvord from the United States of America for their entry ‘Reel Estate’. The name for their boat was chosen because both Richard and Ellen are in the real estate business in Mission Beach, San Diego.
“The reel used for the R in Reel Estate – this reel belonged to my father who taught me to fish and passed away 20 years ago,” said Richard.
Want to enter your boat?
R Experience is pleased to announce a new competition for Riviera owners - the Best Boat Name Competition, which is aimed at encouraging Riviera owners to submit a photo of their transom along with a short explanation of how the name came about for a chance to win some fantastic prizes.
In the last issue of R Experience we had some interesting entries including A Salt Weapon, sent in by Scott and Meilyn O’Reilly who said the name was ‘to inspire thoughts of war against the marlin up here in Cairns’. Their last boat was named Rod Rage so they decided to carry on with the same theme.
This is just one example of an interesting boat name and story behind it.
If you would like to share your boat name and its origins with R Experience for the chance to win a Riviera wine cooler; send a photo of the transom with brief explanation to email@example.com or post to 'Best Boat Name Competition', Riviera, 50 Waterway Drive, Coomera, QLD 4209, Australia.
