Riviera

Best Boat Name Competition

BOAT NAME COMPETITION WINNER!

Congratulations to Andy and Tracey Wilkinson for their entry "Dolphin 22".

Andy said, We bought our Riviera M400 in September 2011. The name we chose had to mean something to us and since I had served 24 years in the Royal and Royal Austalian Navy, most of the time as a submariner, we decided on Dolphin 22, which means ‘Submariners never cheat and rarely lie’. Submarine Captains use a special code to communicate with each other and surface ships called the ‘Dolphin Code’, and the emblem of two dolphins is the submariners badge called ‘Your Dolphins’, which is awarded to submariners when they qualify for the first time. They are highly regarded across the fleet and are worn with pride.
