Riviera’s owner and chairman Rodney Longhurst said: “The Festival of Boating was created for Riviera and Belize owners to help them realise their full boating potential.

“We also welcome those who seek to join our Riviera family of owners and enjoy the best of motor yacht ownership.

“Whether you are investigating the incredible lifestyle of luxury motor yacht ownership or you have been enjoying boating all your life, everyone will discover something new and valuable at the 2018 Riviera and Belize Festival of Boating.”

In conjunction with its dealer network, Riviera has organised a range of exciting social events throughout the four days, culminating in the signature Saturday marina cocktail and gala evening.
