Luxton Plant Bureau Veritas

Around Australia by boat

On 17 May, Andrew Luxton completed an epic boat trip around Australia covering a distance of 18,500 kilometres. Andrew embarked on this journey to mark his 50th birthday and take some long service leave after 30 years in the business.

The journey started fifteen months ago from Melbourne and went in an anti-clockwise direction, with every second month spent on the boat. Places visited included Tasmania, Cape York, Thursday Island, Darwin, the Kimberley’s and Rottnest Island, with the final run in the Southern Ocean and across The Great Australian Bight back to Melbourne via Adelaide and Kangaroo Island.
Highlights included the great fishing across Northern Australia, the crocodiles and sharks, the amazing scenery, and anchoring alone most nights in remote locations with family and friends throughout the trip.

Andrew’s Riviera is only the second boat to complete this journey in Riviera’s thirty-five year history.

The journey would not have been possible without the support, reliability and dedication of the staff at Luxton Plant, who looked after customers and the business on a day-to-day basis.
