When it comes to fun on the water Boating World’s luxury Riviera Sport Fishers and Fairline Cruisers take some beating and these majestic craft have been spotted in action all along our coastline – making the most of the last few months of summer.

Derrick, Suzanne, Greg and some clients joined hundreds of revelers at the Moonstruck concert off Clifton recently, enjoying the live music from the beach - from their spectacular vantage point offshore -aboard the Fairline Targa 38.  

 All the guests were comfortably seated in the large open-plan cockpit with wraparound seating (for six) which is great for entertaining with the sociable bar unit and barbeque griddle - perfect for braaing. The party enjoyed refreshing drinks and scrumptious snacks from the well-equipped galley.

Meanwhile preferring some alone time in KwaZulu Natal - new Riviera owner Graeme Steyn from Johannesburg popped the question to the love of his life Simone Badenhorst and happily she said yes – on his recently-acquired Riviera 40. Who could resist a proposal on a romantic Friday evening, on a beautiful boat, on the water at Durban Marina? 

And Boating World’s Greg Alice and a team from Lowrance South Africa met up with Jean Schoonhawen recently on his grandfather’s stunning new Fairline Squadron 42 in Gordons Bay. Jean enjoyed a personal training session to master the sophisticated Lowrance electronics on board - two brand new HDS-10 units, 3-G radar, XL-9 chart and autopilot - so he can focus on what he does best – fishing and crayfishing.

Despite some rather rough conditions that day, the party enjoyed the outing – relishing the amazing power of this dual-control 42.5-footer and her ability to handle the big swells with ease.
