Riviera announces an addition to SUV Collection

Barry 2019-08-23

Riviera has announced an advanced, mid-sized addition to its SUV Collection, designated the 505, which will make her international debut at the 2020 Miami Yacht Show (13-17 February).

The accomplished Riviera design team, working in partnership with company owner Rodney Longhurst and CEO Wes Moxey, was given free rein to unleash its creativity with a hull that's brand new from the keel up. The result was a multi-functional, genre-bridging cruising yacht embodying the ultimate in refined luxury. 

The designers cleverly integrated a number of the distinctive "big-boat" attributes, while staying faithful to the SUV pedigree that perfectly blends a seaworthy, sports-friendly flybridge ethos with the entertainment amenities inherent to a sport yacht.

An outstanding feature is the 505's raised mezzanine seating area that draws innovation and design from the recently announced 64 Sports Motor Yacht, which is also set for a 2020 premiere.

The Riviera 505's hull is classically appealing with a gently sweeping sheer line and prominent topside windows balanced harmoniously by a raked coach-house with generous glass surrounds.

Standard power is twin six-cylinder Volvo Penta D8-IPS 800 turbo diesel developing 600hp (441kw) apiece, mated to joystick controls (helm and cockpit) and twin 16-inch Volvo Penta Glass Bridge screens. At the purchaser's discretion, the powerplants may be upgraded to twin 725hp (533kW) D11-IPS 950s.

"The 505 SUV benefits from our latest research and development processes,"  Longhurst concludes. "Whether it's fishing, diving, paddle-boarding, or simply entertaining with family and friends in the comfort of the mezzanine, she offers the best of all worlds."
