When Riviera’s highly-skilled design team set out to create their newest addition to the SUV Collection their first and foremost objective was to make the best of both world’s even better.
The result is the spectacular new Riviera 505 SUV. The same pedigree of a single level alfresco entertainer with thrilling blue-water ability but with the added dimension of the mezzanine: a beautiful wining, dining and relaxing space offering privacy and protection from harsh sun and weather all year round. Escape par excellence.
The SUV concept demands a generous cockpit, low to the water to maximise the action and adventure of the full spectrum of water sports. And that’s what the cockpit of the 505 delivers. Picture yourself cruising the great waterways of the world, diving in the Bahamas, or fishing on the Reef. Anything and everything is possible on board your Riviera 505 SUV.
World famous, ocean tested, Riviera build quality and strength underpin spirited, enduring performance and retained resale value.
And no motor yacht could be more luxurious or better appointed.
From bow to boarding platform, you’ll relish the Riviera attention to detail, handcrafted luxury and astonishing operational technology. This is cruising on an unprecedented scale of comfort and ease.
And the 505 SUV adds a new dimension to refined living below decks with a full beam master stateroom, private ensuite and walk-in robe as well as two guest staterooms with shared bathroom. And then, of course, there is the Volvo Penta Glass Cockpit navigation system and silkysmooth and economical performance of twin Volvo Penta IPS turbo diesels with fingertip easy joystick control.
Escape, explore, relax and unwind.
The generous cockpit is near the waterline which opens up a whole world of sporting opportunities from sports fishing to diving to paddle boarding or kayaking. Before you step aboard, you’ll notice the swim platform is extra large with a fixed hob from the transom to allow free access when your tender or jetski is secured. An hydraulic lifter makes it easy to launch or retrieve watercraft and the swim platform serves as a beach when partly submerged, perfect for water sports or children. Step easily from the dock and enter via either of the outward opening transom doors.
In typical Riviera fashion, a wealth of practical, well considered features are built into this wide, welcoming cockpit space. The cockpit is self draining and all the hatches have gas struts for easy access and heavy duty lock downs.
There’s a hand held, hot and cold freshwater shower as well as an outlet for salt water wash-down.
You can never have enough storage and you’ll find volumes in both the cockpit floor and the transom. There is a large pump-out fish bin locker in the cockpit floor and a storage bin in the transom can be converted to a serious live bait tank with a window and light.
Either side of the centre steps leading up to the mezzanine you’ll find the barbecue station, wet bar and sink as well as a large lift-up fridge freezer and separate icemaker, so you are all set to entertain your guests with the freshest seafood and ice cool drinks.
Picture the whole family now: it’s dusk at anchor in the islands. Refreshments have just been served in the cockpit. A pod of dolphins cruise by, as happy in their element as you are in yours…..
