Plenty of fun in store as Festival draws near

When Riviera promises a truly unique boating festival of fun and learning, there’s absolutely no doubt that you’re in for a very spectacular and valuable experience.

For one you know the Riviera Festival of Boating educational offering will be first-class – as it is with everything iconic Riviera undertakes – with a vast array of workshops designed to help luxury motor yacht owners gain the skills and confidence to use their boats to their full potential.

Now in its 4th year, the 2015 Riviera Festival of Boating (21-24 May 2015) has three brand-new and completely different social celebrations for which hundreds of tickets have already been purchased.

This year the Festival’s spectacular social events include a Fragrance Masterclass and Luncheon for the ladies on Friday 22 May, a Dock of the Bay cocktail evening and red-carpet on-water boat show also on 22 May, and then The R Factor gala event on Saturday evening, 23 May.

Indeed, there is very strong interest in every one of over 70 educational and social events on offer at the Festival, including our 11 brand-new workshops and three brand-new social events.

Festival registrations are now 53 per cent up from the same time last year, which all points to a fantastic four days of fun and learning but also to the fact that people should book their attendance now to avoid disappointment.

The Riviera Festival of Boating attracts Riviera owners from around Australia and from around the globe to the home of Riviera at Coomera on Australia’s Gold Coast.

Festival visitors all share a passion for the luxury boating lifestyle and for the most spectacular motor yachts built in Australia. They also share a love of a great time among great people … and we believe this year’s Festival social events will certainly help create memories to last a lifetime.

The Fragrance Masterclass and Luncheon: hosted by internationally trained perfume erudite Samantha Taylor on Friday 22 May from 10pm-2pm, this special event will delve into the intriguing world of perfume perfection, with ladies making their own personalised scent and also sharing tips and tricks on how to select, store and wear perfume.

The Dock of the Bay cocktail evening: on the Riviera Marina from 6pm-9pm, also on Friday 22 May, will feature sumptuous seafood and soothing sounds, as well as an exclusive and stunning red-carpet, on-water showcase of beautiful new boats.

The R Factor gala event: set within the Riviera factory on Saturday 23 May from 6.30pm-11.30pm, R Factor will be an action-packed, formal dinner with matched wines filled with fun and spectacular performances as some of the best voices in Australia battle it out for supremacy, followed by dancing to the vibrant sounds of a fantastic live band.

In addition to the Festival educational and social events is our stunning on-water showcase that will not be displayed anywhere else this May.

And we will also be revealing three new model announcements and an entirely new design and style of Riviera, exclusively at the 2015 Festival of Boating.

If you love boating, you’ll just love the Gold Coast in May!
