Riviera owners across Australia celebrated Christmas and the summer boating season in true Riviera style with beach parties, raft ups, floating cocktail parties and a visit from a very Aussie Santa.
Riviera owners from across Australia joined with their respective R Marine dealers for the annual festivities.
In Queensland, more than 120 people on board 35 Rivieras joined R Marine Jones at Jumpin Pin on the Gold Coast’s Broadwater for a buffet lunch with fresh prawns. There was a photo display of all the R Marine Jones Experiences held throughout the year, children were entertained with some large inflatable toys, including an in-water trampoline, and an Aussie Santa in his board shorts delivered gifts to the children and Christmas puddings to the adults.
The team at R Marine Crawley hosted their Sunset on the Dock Christmas Party, which attracted more than 100 people to the floating cocktail party held at Runaway Bay Marina. Guests were entertained by a live band on the back of the new 445 SUV and enjoyed Spanish Paella cooked by a professional chef. The lucky door prize was a tender, which was supplied by Sirocco Marine North.
In Western Australia, R Marine Perth hosted their annual Christmas Raft Up in front of Perth City, which attracted over 80 people who were entertained by Shawne Kirke from The Voice.
More than 60 guests enjoyed Pina Coladas at R Marine Mandurah’s Cocktails on the Coast Christmas Party, which was held at R Marine Mandurah’s offices on December 13. In January they will celebrate the New Year with their Australia Day Getaway.
Riviera Sydney owners were treated to a weekend at The Basin, Pittwater, which included a French Riviera themed lunch on the lawn and a visit from Santa who delivered gifts to every boat. The event culminated with the Bling on Summer Christmas Party held at the Royal Motor Yacht Club, Broken Bay.
The 350 strong team of master craftsmen and marine professionals at Riviera Australia would like to thank the Riviera Family for its continued support throughout the year and wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas, and happy and safe boating.
