There is such a variety of events and experiences to be had as a Riviera owner, we meet up many times during the year for rendezvous and passage making experiences to discover new or return to some of our favourite places. When it’s boat show time in May our location puts us in the prime position inside the Riviera Festival of Boating overlooking the new boats and besides the VIP Riviera Owner’s lounge and restaurant. There are over 70 educational and 3 social events to further your knowledge or broaden your associations with the domestic and international Riviera family that congregate for Riviera’s Festival of Boating each year.

Whether you are new to boating or you’ve been around boats all your life discovering new places with the full support of our team is a very reassuring way to further your boating adventures.
