Riviera is now preparing for its biggest annual boating event as power boat owners and enthusiasts from around the world unite at the home of Australia’s favourite and most awarded luxury boat builder for the 3rd Riviera Festival of Boating held from May 22 to 25.
The Riviera Festival of Boating provides an opportunity for owners and aspiring owners of luxury pleasure craft to come together at Riviera’s 14-hectare, state-of-the-art Coomera facility for four days of boating education and fun-filled social activities.
The 2014 program will include something for every boating enthusiast with skipper training for men, women and children. The expanded program will include interactive displays, the Technology Showcase on the waterfront and some of the most popular events such as, Riviera factory tours, offshore seamanship with Captain Bob Jones, maintenance tricks of the trade, fishing clinics, electronic navigation, sanitation system maintenance, and anchoring, line work and rafting, to name but a few.
This year there will be some exciting new events added to the program, including a seminar from Riviera owners Narelle and Peter Williams who have travelled some 36,000 nautical miles, equivalent to one-and-a-half times around the world, in their Riviera 47 Open Flybridge and they look forward to sharing their couple-focused cruising experiences, information and advice in a delightful seminar.
Riviera’s red carpet, under cover on-water display will showcase an impressive line-up of brand new models from Riviera and Belize with a retail value of AUD$22 million, including the new 515 SUV, which will make her world premiere at the Festival, and the flagship of the Riviera fleet, the 75 Enclosed Flybridge.
Riviera owners will also be invited to exclusive owner-only events held during the four day boating festival. Riviera will also offer VIP parking and transport to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show via ferry to all registered Festival guests.
