Winner announced in Riviera Owners’ Photo and Video Competition


There is so much to inspire the Riviera family in this edition of Experience magazine as we announce the winner of our Riviera Owners Photo and Video Competition.

Entries have been received from our motor yacht owners enjoying the best of boating escapes around the world, and each one captures the essence of why life is always better on a Riviera.

Congratulations to this month’s winner, Glenda Parker who will receive a special Riviera prize pack for her entry titled Beautiful Anchorage. 

Remember to keep your photos and videos coming in so we can share your special Riviera experience with the entire Riviera family.


Another magnificent day on the water aboard the brilliantly named Ratha-B, a Riviera 54 Flybridgde. Congratulations to this month’s winning entry from Glenda Parker titled Beautiful Anchorage, taken at Kingfisher Bay, Fraser Island, on the southern Queensland coast.


The summer of 2020 in the US in the San Juan Islands of Washington state provided the perfect backdrop for SummerSalt II, a 575 SUV heading out for a post-lockdown cruise. Thanks to Laurie Heilmann for submitting the entry.


Jessica Toohey celebrated the end-of-school year in fine fashion with a dip into the waters of Narrowneck off Rottnest Island in Western Australia. The photo is titled School is Out for Summer, and that’s Christmas Aussie style for Jess and the Toohey family who were looking forward to spending Christmas Day and yet another school holidays aboard Waterholic, their Riviera 41 Flybridge.


Tranquility in Quarantine is this perfectly titled entry from Arik Van Zandt. The image of Madisea, a Riviera 40 Flybridge on the glassy waters of the San Juan Islands in Washington state, USA, is the epitome of relaxation in this popular cruising ground during the off season.


There was as much to enjoy below the water as there was above aboard Polaris 1, a Riviera 48 Platinum, as Gary Chapman and friends went diving on several World War II wrecks in beautiful Coron in the Philippines. Thanks to Gary for his entry titled Diving WWII Wreck.


Brett Maxwell and his Tenterfield terrier Kuta aboard Chill Out, a Riviera 37 Flybridge, were doing what comes naturally in the morning sun on beautiful Lake Macquarie on the NSW coast north of Sydney. Just Chillin is the title of this entry submitted by Brett.


The rich colours of sunset at Marjorie Bay, Rottnest Island, in Western Australia inspired Darren Chatfield to submit this entry titled What a Sunset. The photo taken aboard Spectrum, a Riviera 51, captured the end of an amazing Christmas Day, says Darren.


The reflection of Platinum Days, a Riviera 43 Flybridge is unmistakably made in crystal cool waters of Tasmania. Thanks to Vicki Connor for submitting this photo, and the clever title, Riv-flections. It was taken in the shelter of Quarantine Bay at Bruny Island, just south of Hobart. Vicki describes the scene as an early morning weekend spent relaxing and reflecting.


Simon Irwin submitted this photo titled Sunset Silhouette, featuring Pacific Dream III, a 39 Platinum, moored on the tranquil waters of Lake Macquarie in NSW.

“This sunset shot was taken during a recent seven-day stay on our most excellent vessel,” says Simon. “My first mate and I took a circuit breaker week after a long 2020 and this shot captures the experience on our Riv. Not sure I could think of a better way to unwind and refresh than on a Riviera and our Pacific Dream III fits that bill just nicely.”


Thanks to Joe Boiano for this photo of another serene scene aboard a Riviera motor yacht. Sorrento, a Riviera 2000 Platinum, is described here by Joe as ‘our beautiful girl tucked away on the Hacking NSW’. That’s Port Hacking, of course, on a lazy winter’s day in June.


There was an air of excitement for Scott Sach as he took this photo on the boat delivery run from Sanctuary Cove to Mackay. Just in Time for Christmas is the title of the photo of the 48 Offshore Express, PlayStation, taken west of the Percy Islands.  

“The further north, the better the waters and we could not think of a better vessel in which to do this ‘offshore-express’ run,” says Scott.


It may look like a face-off, but it’s the epitome of togetherness as Kryptonite (left), a 39 Convertible, and Whole Life, a 40 Convertible, drift just off Laguna Beach. Jim McNamara submitted this photo taken on a sunny southern Californian November morning. “Calm seas and warm sunshine made for a beautiful cruise filled with friends, including a great dolphin show!” says Jim.


“It’s great to see our five-year-old son’s excitement when he gets a fish on his rod,” says Belinda McLeod, whose entry this month is titled Family Fun on the Riv 48. The photo was taken aboard the 48, Calypso, at Forster in the heart of the spectacular Great Lakes region north of Sydney on the NSW coast.


Perth City Night Lights is the title of this photo of Kia Ora, a Riviera 3850, moored near Elizabeth Quay on the Swan River. Lisa Saul shares this photo which was taken by friends on a beautiful evening in the Western Australian capital.
