Riviera Festival



Riviera Festival

With a greater focus than ever before on broadening the boating knowledge and skills of luxury motor yacht owners, Riviera’s 2016 educational program is the Festival’s most expansive ever.

This year the marque will present over 110 informative and very hands-on workshops spread over four days to build boating safety and confidence, including 17 brand-new workshops.

Many of the Festival’s popular workshops have been fully refreshed, providing ever greater in-depth training in specific areas of nautical interest.

“The Riviera Festival of Boating is open to all luxury motor yacht owners, and aspiring owners,” said Riviera’s owner and chairman Rodney Longhurst.

“It doesn’t matter if you are brand-new to luxury motor yacht ownership or you have been enjoying it all your life, even the most experienced offshore skippers will discover something new and informative at this year’s Riviera Festival of Boating,” he said.

“Popular workshops will be presented multiple times over the four fun days – hands-on practical sessions on the water in the mornings and theory in air-conditioned comfort in the afternoons – but places are limited, so we are urging visitors to book now to avoid disappointment.”

The Riviera Festival of Boating – coinciding with the Gold Coast International Marine Expo from 19-22 May 2016 – draws owners from around Australia and around the world to celebrate and share in all that it is that makes boating with Riviera so unique.
