“Boating is character building,” says Richard Barnes. “It is a clean open air activity that teaches us all a lot about the elements and how to live in harmony with them.”
When Richard and Annette Barnes took delivery of their new Belize 54, their immediate plan was a cruise from their home on Queensland’s Gold Coast to the iconic Whitsunday Islands and home again, a total of about 1,400 nautical miles
Along the way they experienced a close encounter with whales, heavy sea fog and shared the joys of boating with their family – children and grandchildren.
Now you can read all about their adventure in our limited edition coffee table book “Celebrating the Riviera Family”.
This richly photographed and superbly told collection of stories about Riviera and Belize owners cruising the iconic waterways of the world is contained in 188 pages, beautifully bound and silver embossed, priced at AU$85 plus postage and handling.
From a stunningly photographed voyage exploring the wild coastline of north-western USA to a circumnavigation of Tasmania as well as shorter cruises and adventures, this is a book to treasure on board or in your home or as a wonderful gift for the Riviera or Belize enthusiast in your life.
As well, there is a history showcase of every Riviera model ever built over the past 38 years.
