Riviera to Debut the 505 SUV at the Miami Yacht Show in February
Premier yacht builder, Riviera Australia, has an impressive lineup of yachts heading to the Miami International Boat Show next month. The company’s highly anticipated yacht lineup is always a gorgeous display, especially this year with the long-awaited world premiere of the all-new 505 SUV playing a starring role.
“Whether it’s fishing, diving, paddle-boarding, or simply relaxing with family and friends in the total luxury of the mezzanine, the new 505 SUV offers the best of all worlds and will be widely welcomed when she is unveiled at the Miami Yacht Show from February 13-17, 2020,” said Riviera Australia owner, Rodney Longhurst.
Joining the 505 SUV out on the water in Miami will be an additional six models from Riviera. Here is a closer look at the boats Riviera will be displaying at the show. All of these boats will become available in the Pacific Northwest this spring via Van Isle Marina.
Riviera 505 SUV – World Premiere
Van Isle Marina first introduced you to the Riviera 505 SUV in October 2019, back when Riviera first announced it was nearing completion. The 505 SUV is a multi-functional cruising yacht with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large cockpit, and a fully covered mezzanine for comfort and privacy.
You’ll also love this model’s exceptionally redesigned hull and bowspirit. Excellent power-to-weight ratios, impressive fuel efficiency, and exhilarating bluewater performance and handling capabilities make this one a truly impressive model. Standard power comes from twin six-cylinder Volvo Penta D8 IPS 800 turbo diesels developing 600hp (441kw) apiece, mated to joystick controls (helm and cockpit) and twin 16-inch Volvo Penta Glass Bridge screens.
