The Riviera Festival continues to grow

The inaugural Riviera Festival is continuing to grow with a total of 71 individual, exclusive, social and educational events held over four days from May 24 to 27.

Almost 5,000 Riviera owners from all over the world will be invited to participate in the festival which will celebrate Riviera’s rich history, the global Riviera family of boat owners and the joys of boating and now the return to private ownership of the company.

Riviera’s director of brand and communications Stephen Milne said the Riviera Festival had gained considerable interest since its announcement that organisers have now increased the number of events from 63 to 71.

“Riviera owners will have exclusive access to a full calendar of 71 events held over the four days of the festival from educational seminars and hands-on workshops through to fun, social and vibrant activities,” Mr Milne said.

“For those new to boating or wishing to brush up on their skills and practical knowledge, we will offer separate women’s and men’s skipper training programs that will include mooring, fenders, lines and anchoring techniques.  Other hands-on courses will include electronic navigation, generator set and sanitation system in-field trouble shooting, fishing clinics, offshore seamanship, exterior maintenance ‘tricks of the trade’ and a full sea trial program.

“Each of The Riviera Festival specialist programs will be conducted by our Riviera experts who love sharing their immense knowledge and passion for the greater enjoyment of boating.

“People can learn how to navigate, meet our designers and the talented craftspeople that build our beautiful boats, take a factory tour, and enjoy a raft of fun events organised exclusively for our owners.”

Newly added events include understanding Desalination which will be run by Chris Rollins from HRO in the United States and Syndicated Boat Ownership run by John and Sharon Russell who have 13 years experience in syndicated boat ownership.

“We have many exciting and invigorating social events lined up including a wine trail tour and lunch at various Hinterland wineries, a relaxing day spa experience for the ladies, the Riviera Masters Golf Classic, High Tea at Palazzo Versace, a champagne cocktail event under the stars on the Friday night and a Gala Dinner within the Riviera factory on the Saturday night, to mention just a few of our planned events,” Mr Milne said.

Riviera will also host factory tours for owners and the general public and there will be free parking on site at Coomera.

Riviera owners are encouraged to contact their local Riviera dealer to register their interest in receiving The Festival’s full program details.  All place numbers will be strictly limited at all program events and prior registration will be essential.
