A big Riv prize for ‘Little Riv’

Coomera, QLD: Riviera M400 owner Terry Little was surprised when CEO Wes Moxey pulled his name out of the barrel to win the Aftermarket anti-foul prize at the Gold Coast International Marine Expo.

It has been such a busy year for Terry, who has not had chance to use his boat as much as he would like, let alone keep up the maintenance.

Terry said one of his priorities over the coming weeks was to pull ‘Little Riv’ out of the water for an anti-foul and detail ready for summer.

“To win this prize really made a bad week awesome.  The boat was due to come out of the water so it was definitely good timing,” he said.

‘Little Riv’ is Terry’s second Riviera which he bought in 2010.  Before becoming a builder, Terry worked as a ‘slushie’ or fibreglasser at Riviera’s Labrador facility back in 1984 and he said it was always a dream of his to one day own a Riviera.

As part of the Gold Coast International Marine Expo, Riviera’s Aftermarket and Service department offered Riviera owners the chance to win a free anti-foul including lift, blast and three days hard standing.

For Terry, this is the ultimate prize and he looks forward to Christmas festivities on board his gleaming boat.
