NEW RIVIERA 43 OFFSHORE EXPRESS LAUNCHED IN CAPE TOWN SOUTH AFRICA

28 Sep 2010

There’s nothing quite like launching a brand new Riviera 43 Offshore Express anywhere in the world but when it happens in Cape Town there’s untold excitement both on board and among admiring onlookers.

The first of these stunning craft to grace South African waters made a spectacular debut on a beautiful Sunday morning recently, taking her maiden voyage from Granger Bay to Hout Bay with loads of fun in between.

On board and loving every minute of it were Boating World’s Derrick Levy, Greg Alice and Mike Wade together with the new owner and his family.  This stylish Sport Fisher went through her paces offshore with ease eventually anchoring off Clifton for a couple of hours of fun.

In this perfect setting champagne corks popped and the bubbly flowed while the Riviera 43 was christened “Zingela” which means "To Hunt"! The naming ceremony was followed by a mouth-watering lunch of prawns to complete the celebration.
