Edition 11 - 2020, Photo and Colouring Competition

Winners announced for monthly owners’ competitions


Jumping for joy off Australia’s west coast at Rottnest Island, cruising to lunch at Newport Beach in California and diving on the outer Great Barrier Reef – these are some of the brilliant images we received in this month’s Riviera and Belize Owners Photo and Video Competition.

They have all beautifully captured the feeling that we all know and love – life is always better on a Riviera.

This month’s winner is Neil O’Sullivan with the photo of High Voltage, a Riviera 43 Flybridge, on the crystal waters off the Queensland coast in the Whitsundays region. It was a magic shot of the blue-water dream.

Thanks to all the entries this month, and keep them coming in. We love sharing them with the entire Riviera Family. There is a Riviera prize pack for each monthly winner.


The blue waters of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef seemingly reveal they have a heaving life of their own in this photo submitted by Neil O’Sullivan.

Simply titled Great Barrier Reef, it captures High Voltage, a Riviera 43 Flybridge, on a perfect day for diving on a swing moor at Bait Reef. That’s on the edge of the Coral Sea, about 65km (40 miles) from Airlie Beach in the Whitsunday region off the Queensland coast. Congratulations to Neil as this month’s winner.


Riviera and Belize Owners Photo and Video Competition

Here are some of the other entries we have received.


Giving us a touch of California dreaming is this photo of two Riviera motor yachts submitted by Jim McNamara. October Sunshine in California is the title of the photo of the 40 Convertible, Whole Life, at right and the 39 Flybridge, Kryptonite, enjoying an afternoon cruise from home port in Dana Point to Newport Beach for lunch. “Both boats travel together often to destinations up and down the southern California coast,” says Jim.


Thanks to Tracey Neagle for her photo (above left) titled Arrived Safely. Taken aboard Sidetracked, a Riviera 43 Flybridge, the calm waters of Mooloolaba on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast were a welcome sight after experiencing rough seas on their trip from the Gold Coast.


Jumping for joy from a Riviera 51 Flybridge into the waters of Marjorie Bay at Rottnest Island near Perth, this photo is titled ‘Oh, What a Feeling’. It was submitted by Darren Chatfield who describes the occasion as ‘a very fine spring day with the kids braving the cold water and doing what they love, jumping off the front of the boat!’


Thanks to Ben Byth for this photo (above left) titled Night Lights as he guided his Riviera 3000 Amorosa home to Raby Bay on Brisbane’s bayside. “What a light show after a day on the bay!” says Ben.

Charging Home is this photo’s (above right) headline, and it was a perspective that pleased Ben Byth who was at the helm.  Ben submitted the photo of his Riviera 3000 Amorosa at WOT as he headed back to port on Queensland’s Moreton Bay. “Getting there and back in style,” says Ben. “It was a hoot when friends sent a picture of us under way… not a perspective we ever get to see!” 


Thanks to Nick Wassell for submitting this photo of Classic Dreams, a Riviera 3300, at Port Stephens in NSW. Titled Sunset Sundowners, Nick says the photo depicts a ‘perfect end to a perfect day on the water’. No doubt a spectacular sunset dancing off glassy waters while relaxing aboard your Riviera presents the right formula to feel that way.
