Owners Photo and Video Competition

Name: Kasey Goetze
Boat Name: Rivive
Boat Model: Riviera 42 Flybridge
Photo Headline: Riv Kids 4 Life!
Photo taken: Blakesley’s
Photo Description: Loving life on our Riv 42! Another fantastic R Marine Jones trip. Thanks to the team at R Marine Jones for our goodies bag. The kids (and the big kids) love it. Nowhere we would rather be.

The winning photo this month has been submitted by Kasey Goetze who has perfectly captured the joy of owning a Riviera.

The photo of her children Indi, 7, and Ari, 3, aboard the family’s Riviera 42 Flybridge, Rivive, was taken at Blakesley’s Slip off North Stradbroke Island in south-east Queensland on a cruise experience with other Riviera owners hosted by R Marine Jones.

“We try to get out as much as we can on our Riviera and the kids just love it,” says Kasey. “We have wonderful group of friends and we often head out together for raft ups of our own as well.”

There’s no denying Kasey and her husband Trent are experienced members of the Riviera Family. Rivive is the fifth Riviera they have owned, having previously enjoyed a Riviera 34, 37, 3350 and 4000. The couple cruised Rivive solo from Mackay to her new homeport in Brisbane three years ago.

Kasey says life on a Riviera has become a complete family affair now that the kids are old enough to appreciate it.

“They love jumping off the back of the boat and, when we anchor overnight, they set up their cabin really cutely with their sleeping bags. We have linen for the beds, but they prefer their pink and blue sleeping bags.”

We enjoyed a few drinks and nibbles, and shared many laughs together whilst watching the sun slowly slip away at dusk. We welcomed our beloved Riv into our family in March this year and absolutely love her to bits. She’s a classic 1995 model with so much charm, character and spirit.
