The new Riviera 505 SUV, premiering in spring 2020, is the latest addition to the Riviera SUV Collection. With a hull length of 50 feet, the 505 SUV is the perfect mid-sized luxury sport yacht for enjoying all aspects of life on a boat, including a world of watersports, long-range cruising, fishing, relaxing, and entertaining plenty of guests for days and nights at a time.
The 505 gives owners the ease of a smartly laid-out single-level living area, but with the addition of a massive mezzanine area. Also onboard are three staterooms, two bathrooms, a generously sized cockpit, a spacious saloon, a fully-equipped designer galley, walkaround side decks, two outward opening transom doors, and an easily accessible foredeck with a double sunbed.
All of these entertainment zones are combined perfectly with the 505’s completely redesigned hull, and all the high-end finishes and technological advancements you can expect from Riviera.
When you step aboard the 505, the first thing you’ll notice is the massive mezzanine area that comes with teak decking, two fixed lounges, a BBQ and wet bar centre, and a hardtop to provide protection from the elements year-round. Then, as you step through the mezzanine’s tinted, tempered glass door, you will find the saloon and the U-shaped galley with stainless steel appliances and plenty of prep space and storage. Starboard from the galley is an L-shaped seating area and timber table, and just ahead of the galley is a second lounge area and a helm station that comes with two pedestal seats all covered by a sliding sunroof.
Down below on the accommodation level, the 505 continues to impress with its elegant lighting and timber finishes throughout. A full-beam master suite comes with a queen-sized island berth, plush carpeting, a walk-in robe, 42-inch LED TV, lounger, and en-suite access. For your guests, there are twin bunk beds in a private cabin to starboard and a forward guest stateroom with another queen-sized berth. Additional features onboard the Riviera 505 include an extra-large hydraulic swim platform, optional laundry closet, numerous LED TVs, and smart storage solutions throughout.
Stepping away from the model and admiring it from afar, you’ll notice right away the gently sweeping sheer line of the 505 SUV, paired with its prominent topside windows, and generous flare forward and glass surrounds. Finally, having the bowsprit incorporated into the hull using a through-the-bow design is done so thoughtfully as well, making for a cleaner, more contemporary look. More specifically, the bowsprit has been replaced by a modern through-the-bow design, putting more emphasis on the anchoring station. This allows your stainless steel Ultra Anchor to become a shining jewel adorning your yacht.
Like all Riviera SUV models, the 505 delivers remarkable power-to-weight ratios, excellent fuel efficiency, and thrilling bluewater performance and handling capabilities. The Riviera 505 SUV comes standard with twin 6-cylinder diesel engines, with each Volvo Penta D8-IPS 800 turbo engine delivering 600hp/441kw. You also get joystick control steering, two 16-inch Volvo Penta Glass Bridge screens, and a touchscreen navigation system, making the 505 as easy to operate as it is comfortable to sit back and relax on.
The Riviera 505 SUV marks the fifth SUV model of Riviera’s SUV Collection, joining the SUV 575, SUV 525, SUV 445, and SUV 395 models, but with a few key differences – the 505’s new hull and bowsprit design make it a distinctive model in the Collection.
