Fantastic Weekend – R Marine Crawley setting the bar for Boating Getaway’s.

“There’s an overwhelming sense of pride when you look back and see a mile-long procession of Riviera’s following behind you. ” – Tiffany English. Operations Manager, R Marine Crawley.

The Gold Coast turned on the weather last Friday as the first boating event of the year for R Marine Crawley, set off from Runaway Bay.

“These events are more than just an excuse to take the boat out; they are a timely reminder just how much our Riviera’s continue to enrich our lives.” – Ben Crawley. Dealer Principle, R Marine Crawley.

With perfect conditions, social activities and a relaxing weekend by the water planned, it wasn’t long until the group anchored up at Dux and tendered to shore for an afternoon rendezvous.

Dave Pollock owner of Hokus Pokus a Riviera SUV 5000 spoke to the team about how the simple things in life have the most memorable impact.

“It’s the little things, like joining in a game of beach cricket, which reminds me just how important it is to stop and embrace life in its raw simplicity… Something I’m sure many of us forget when life gets’ busy.” – Dave Pollock

Witnessing some great performances from both Team R Marine Crawley and Team Riviera Owners, the afternoon “20/20 Big Bash” session concluded in a friendly draw.

Enjoying a BBQ lunch at the exclusive picnic area on Dux, people whiled away the afternoon; watching the sun go down, (on what was a fantastic first day) making new friends, reminiscing with old friends and sharing boating experiences, by the water.

Saturday morning’s perfect weather delighted the Riviera group with postcard memories.

Ben said; “I’d gladly try to replicate mornings like this, time and time again”.

Tendering across for breakfast at Tipplers; it wasn’t long before the group were back onboard, casting off for an easy cruise to Horseshoe Bay, Peel Island.

This picture perfect backdrop set the scene for topical discussions across the beach, none more welcoming than the comradery expressed by many of the owners.

“I sit here looking out at 15 Riviera’s. There are Sports Yacht’s, SUV’s and multiple Flybridge ranges, yet we are all refreshingly similar in the way we feel about our boating family. Said Richard Kaye owner of Lady Soul a Riviera 43 Flybridge.

“We have been on a few of these events now and are so grateful for the rapport we have created with not only the R Marine Crawley team but other boat owners alike. Kita and I love these events and our Riviera family.” – Andy Smith, owner of Reel Dynamic a Riviera 51.

Sunday came around way too quickly, but it wasn’t without a quick trip to the Tangalooma Wrecks for some swimming and snorkelling.
