Festival Of Boating

9 April 2014

Riviera’s 14-hectare state-of-the-art Coomera waterfront facility on Australia’s sunny Gold Coast will be a hive of activity from May 22 to 25, as Riviera and Belize owners and enthusiasts from around the globe unite for 2014’s ultimate boating event – The Riviera Festival of Boating.

This truly unique boating event brings together all aspects of boating with 76 educational seminars, practical workshops and social events held over four days including, a red carpet undercover boat show and factory tours of the largest luxury boat building facility in the southern hemisphere.

At Riviera we are very proud of our rich 34-year heritage, launching over 5000 luxury boats in this period and we look forward to hosting the 3rd annual Riviera Festival of Boating in late May.

Last year’s Festival was a tremendous success with registrations up by 50 per cent, and there was something for everyone from the Riv Kidz Skipper program for budding captains through to the Men’s and Women’s Skipper Programs, understanding desalination, maintenance tips and tricks, offshore seamanship with Captain Bob Jones, the Master BBQ Chef Challenge, Ladies luncheon, and the ever-popular guided Riviera Factory Tour.

In 2014 we look forward to introducing several new events, including an inspiring seminar by Riviera owners Peter and Narelle 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.  Peter and Narelle will share their experiences from more than seven years of cruising together as a couple up and down the east coast of Australia from their home in Port Stephens to as far north as Lizard Island.

For a detailed profile of the entertainment line-up for this year’s event and the fully revised boating educational program, see the Education Events and Social Events tabs.

The impressive red carpet on water display is also another major highlight of the Festival and this year we will stage the world premiere of the new 515 SUV, which will lead an impressive $22 million showcase of Riviera and Belize Motoryachts.

We take this opportunity to invite you and your family and boating enthusiasts to our 2014 Riviera Festival of Boating, which will be celebrating its 3rd anniversary

The Festival offers free on site parking and free ferry transfers to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show for all registered guests. 

Wishing you safe and happy boating in 2014. From from Rodney Longhurst, Wes Moxey and the 400-strong team at Riviera Australia.
