Why we do it R Marine Jones has been doing events for our customers and Riviera owners for many years and carry a perfect record of conducting safe, serious but fun boating events that suit all levels of boating. Randall Jones, his family and the team enjoy organising and taking part in all the events out on the water. We strive to make these a great experience for everyone. We feel the calendar of events are important for our owners as it enables them to use their boat in different ways throughout the year whilst sharing these experiences with like-minded people. Our many owners enjoy both the social and educational aspects the events provide. Join us and discover life’s better on a Riviera!


A gem on your doorstep

Discover Kooringal


ooringal the sleepy little village on the southern end of Moreton Island, is a must do event on the R Marine Jones Calendar every year. Kooringal is not an easy place to navigate your way in as the shifting sands bars make it impossible to have a permanent channel marked all the way in. Where the buoyage system ends and safe anchorage begins is about half a mile.

The RMJ team leads the way dropping temporary colour coded channel markers to guide the eager fleet of Riviera & Belize Motor Yachts in. A highlight for all who attend the Kooringal Experience is exploring the tidal areas by tender. Crab Island situated just a few hundred metres from the fleet is rich with marine life on the incoming tide. Teeming with Rays & Turtles it is like a staged show of marine life in their natural habitats.

The illustrious wine presentation and anti-pasto platter competition has become a fun winter weekend tradition. “Galleys were abuzz mid afternoon with preparations for the coveted competitions ashore. A swathe of cheeses and deli delights we’re peppered with nods to Riviera. “We lead a Champagne lifestyle and Rivieras are a Champagne quality boat. This particular Champagne is the only one in the world to donate all it’s profits to the cleaning of the worlds oceans.” The light blue presentation box was opened to reveal the aptly named Royal Riviera Champagne!

Summer Escape Grand Waterways There are no grander waters in this country than Sydney Harbour and the nearby Broken Bay - Hawkesbury system. These deep valleys were carved by ancient rivers through millennia of Hawkesbury sandstone. One waterway is almost as it was in 1788 – the other is the most sophisticated boating venue in Australia. Sydney Harbour is an eclectic mix of busy commercial traffic and a playground for recreational boats of all types. Just around the point from a busy wharf could be a tranquil inlet for a picnic or a classy waterside eatery. In 2018 R Marine Jones will be expanding the events calendar to include a trip South to explore the Sydney Waters. If you want to explore in a fully supported environment and meet interstate Riviera Owners then this is the trip to do. 16-Page | Events & Experiences

Approximately a week before Christmas we’ll be heading out the Seaway and turning right. We’ll be there for Christmas, New Years Eve and about a week to ten days of the new year before we return to Queensland.
