Welcome to the
Riviera Festival of Boating 2016

One of the most satisfying things for the 480-strong team here at Riviera is to bear witness to the passion of our global family of owners towards their motor yachts and their sheer enjoyment of boating with family and friends.

Yes we create and build beautiful and luxurious motor yachts that are considered to be among the best in the world… and we are certainly very proud of our international success and multiple awards in this regard.

Being able to play a role in helping people to stretch their sea legs and experience the exhilaration of true blue-water cruising, to help them learn new skills and build the confidence to use their motor yachts to their full potential … is truly something very special.

This is why we created the Riviera Festival of Boating – four fantastic days of fun and learning at our 14-hectare, world-class facility at Coomera on Australia’s sunny Gold Coast.

Now in its 5th year, your unique festival brings together all aspects of boating, with over 110 free educational seminars and hands-on practical workshops covering all areas of seamanship – from anchoring and sea safety systems operation all the way through to understanding the weather and traditional navigation techniques.

You can also hear from owners who have undertaken extended cruises to learn and be inspired by what you can achieve with your Riviera.

Many of 2016’s workshops are brand-new and all have been fully refreshed to focus and expand on specific areas of interest, thus ensuring your Festival remains informative and inspiring for everyone … even the most experienced skipper.

Of course, the Festival is also an opportunity to bring together valued members of our global family of Riviera and Belize owners to celebrate our shared appreciation for Riviera’s rich 36-year heritage, throughout which we have launched almost 5200 luxury motor yachts that today proudly cruise the great rivers, lakes, seas and oceans of the world.

Additionally, the Festival provides all luxury motor yacht owners, and aspiring owners, the chance to fully appreciate the passion and pride embodied in every Riviera and Belize. Our hallmark ethos of excellence will be on show for all to see through our fully narrated factory tours and, equally so, at our stunning $20 million red-carpet, undercover on-water showcase on the Riviera Marina.

Please note that places at all the Festival workshops are limited, so we recommend registering your interest early to avoid disappointment.

The 480-strong team at Riviera Australia look forward to welcoming you and your family to Coomera in May.
