Riviera and Belize Owners Photo Competition

Cheryl Lamb is our winner in this month’s competition with this beautiful photo of the Riviera 47 Enclosed Flybridge, Cheeky Blue II, taken at Broadhurst Reef while on a weekend fishing trip on Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef.


Here are other recent entries to our photo and video competition:


The Perfect Weekend (above left) was taken by Nick Wassell aboard Classic Dreams, a Riviera 3300, at Frame Cove, Port Stephens, NSW, and it featured a special guest appearance on the foredeck. “It was the perfect Saturday afternoon, great weather with great company. I just had to get on the paddle board and grab a snap and, who did I find but our cat on the front deck!” says Nick.

The title of the photo above right is Lazy Days with Hops and Scotch – no doubt inspired by the name of this Riviera 39 Platinum. Thanks to Tim Lord for submitting his entry which was taken aboard Hop Scotch on a lazy afternoon at Missionary Bay, Bruny Island, south of Hobart, Tasmania.


The Purrfect Place is always on your Riviera, as Lord Augustus will attest. “Our Maine Coon found a new favourite spot to catch a few rays,” says Pip Fleming. She took this photo aboard The Boardroom, a Riviera 3000 Sports Cruiser at Hope Island on the Gold Coast, Queensland.


Cheryl Lamb’s photos titled Sunset at Flinders Reef were taken aboard Cheeky Blue II, a Riviera 47 Enclosed Flybridge while on a four-day fishing trip to the outer Coral Sea at Northern Flinders Reef which is about eight hours from Townsville in Queensland.


Grey skies are no barrier to living the dream on your Riviera as Scott Browne discovered. His photo taken aboard GEM, a Riviera 36 (extended 38), is titled Between Storms. It was taken at Rottnest Island near Perth in Western Australia during the dry spells between rain showers over the school holidays.


Simply titled Loving It, this entry from Ben Byth perfectly captures the white sandhills of Moreton Island in Queensland. The photo was taken aboard Amorosa, a Riviera 3000.


Cheryl Lamb shows (above right) that sunrises can be just as beautiful as sunsets. Titled Sunday Morning Sunrise, the photo of the 47 Enclosed Flybridge, Cheeky Blue II, was taken at Broadhurst Reef while on a weekend fishing trip on Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef.


It’s moments like these when a picture is worth a thousand words. Winter Sunsets by Riv is the title of this photo submitted by Andrew Zuschmann aboard ITSABUOY, a Riviera 480E. The setting was Cockle Bay Marina in Sydney’s Darling Harbour and Andrew assures us no filter was necessary.


Winter Riv’ing in Tassie is the title of this photo sent by Tony Kay of High on the Hogg, a Riviera 39 while at Rat Bay on Bruny Island, in southern Tasmania. “Sarah is standing on High on the Hogg, tied up to Blue Horizon – two Riviera 39’s enjoying a beautiful winter cruise,” says Tony.


The tranquil waters of Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne set the scene for this photo [left], Winter in Melbourne, submitted by Tracey Pascoe. It was taken aboard Rum Jungle, a Riviera 40FB, late on a winter’s day.

It was a close encounter for those aboard Sea La Vie [image on the right], a Riviera 52EB, and a delightful one at that. Braydon Winch shared this photo taken early in the whale season at Platypus Bay, off Fraser Island, Queensland. “A pair of whales came up right beside the boat early one morning while we were anchored. They played around us for quite a while,” says Braydon. 


This video titled Curious Humpback Whales and submitted by Stuart Mckay sums up the magic of Living the Dream on your Riviera. It was taken aboard Gnarly, a Riviera 42 Flybridge, near Rottnest Island in Western Australia. “On the way back from Rotto we saw some humpback whales ahead, so shut down motors and they came up to the boat for a look at us,” says Stuart.


This stunning sunset was captured at Moon Point on Hervey Bay, Queensland, aboard Living the Dream, a Riviera 52 Flybridge. Thanks to Mike Bolton for sharing it.
