Riviera 505 SUV at Van Isle Marina

2020 Riviera 505 SUV

The Riviera 505 SUV is set to Premiere in February 2020

Within the yachting community, Riviera is having quite a moment these days. Earlier this year, the luxury yacht builder announced dates for its upcoming 64 Sport Motor Yacht debut as well as launched its new Platinum Edition Sport Yacht line. They are also gearing up for the launch of their next luxury motor yacht – the Riviera 505 SUV, which will be making its debut at the Miami Yacht Show in February 2020.

Riviera 505 SUV - Port

The Riviera 505 SUV will be available to boaters in the Pacific Northwest starting in spring 2020 through the team here at Van Isle Marina – Western Canada’s exclusive authorized dealers of Riviera motor yachts. Our yacht brokers are ready to welcome all interested yacht enthusiasts to send us their inquiries regarding this new model. For now, we hope you enjoy a sneak peak inside this exciting addition to Riviera’s SUV Collection:

The New Riviera 505 SUV

The new Riviera 505 SUV is a three bedroom/two bathroom luxury yacht that has the same pedigree of a single-level alfresco entertainer, but with the addition of the mezzanine area that offers a relaxing space with protection from the elements when needed.

Riviera 505 SUV - master bedroom

The 505 comes in just shy of 56 feet in total length. In addition to the massive mezzanine level, the 505 comes with a generously sized cockpit, impressive saloon and galley, accessible foredeck, luxurious accommodation deck, and technologically advanced helm station. All these features are wrapped up in a package that comes complete with a brand-new hull design and luxurious, handcrafted finishing touches throughout.

Like all four Riviera SUV models that preceded her, the 505 promises exceptional power-to-weight ratios, impressive fuel efficiency, and exhilarating bluewater performance and handling capabilities.

This mid-sized sports yacht is as perfect for fishing and blue-water cruising as it is for entertaining and all the different water sports you can think of! Let’s take a closer look at her impressive layout:

Cockpit

The total cockpit surface area of the 505 is about 10 square metres, making it perfect for fishing, various water sports, and entertaining. It’s also low to the water, making it easy to launch and retrieve all of your favourite water toys. The cockpit features a large BBQ and wet bar centre, a 130-L fridge/freezer compartment, a hydraulic swimming platform, and tons of storage solutions, including a large pump-out fish bin locker in the floor.

Mezzanine

Riviera 505 SUV Mezzanine

A few steps up from the cockpit is the 505’s massive mezzanine with teak decking, an LED TV, and two fixed lounges, one of which converts to a day bed. A hardtop fully extends over the mezzanine, while twin sliding sun hatches let in filtered sunlight and a slight breeze from above. Th mezzanine on the 505 provides a covered entertainment area that is a great place to read, relax, and enjoy your morning coffee. It allows you to enjoy the yachting lifestyle on even the rainiest of days!

Galley & Saloon

The galley and saloon are connected to the mezzanine via a tinted, tempered glass door and awning window. In this area you’ll find a U-shaped galley that is fully equipped with an electric cooktop, microwave convection oven, dual drawer fridge/freezer, stainless steel sink, and optional dishwasher.

Riviera 505 SUV Saloon

 

Across from the galley on the starboard side is an L-shaped lounge and polished timber table. Just ahead is a helm station with twin pedestal seats and sliding sunroof, and a second lounge area that serves as the saloon’s main media centre is nearby.

Accommodation Deck

Take the steps down to the accommodation deck and the first things you’ll notice are the timber finishes, impressive amount of headroom, and elegant lighting throughout. You’ll be able to escape to your full-beam master suite where you will find large hull windows, a queen-sized island berth, walk-in robe, plush carpeting, 42-inch LED TV, chaise lounge, en-suite access, and a full-length mirror. Also down on the accommodation deck is a twin bunk cabin to starboard, and a plush VIP stateroom forward with en-suite access to the luxury day head. An optional laundry closet is also available.

Foredeck & Side Decks

The foredeck entertainment zone aboard the 505 is nice and large, with a walkway that runs laterally so occupants can avoid having to step over the double sun pad cushions when moving from port to starboard, cleaning the windscreen, or attaching window covers. Access to the foredeck is easy with generously wide side decks with raised bulwarks that connect all the way to the cockpit and incorporate several safety features.

Hull & Bowsprit Design

The hull of the Riviera 505 has been newly designed, with a gently sweeping sheerline, more prominent topside windows, and generous flare forward. These features balance nicely with generous glass surrounds.

The bowsprit is seamlessly incorporated into the hull design, making for a cleaner, more contemporary look. More specifically, the bowsprit has been replaced by a modern “through-the-bow” design. The effect is the anchoring station is more prominent. Ultimately, your 35kg highly polished stainless steel Ultra Anchor becomes a jewel adorning your bow.

Power

The Riviera 505 SUV comes standard with twin 6-cylinder Volvo Penta D8-IPS 800 turbo diesels at 600hp (441kw) each. You can also choose to upgrade to 725hp (533kW) via twin D11-IPS 950s, depending on your needs. With either option, the 505 comes with joystick controls at the helm and cockpit, as well as two 16-in. Volvo Penta Glass Bridge screens.

The Riviera SUV Collection

With the addition of the 505 SUV premiering in 2020, the Riviera SUV Collection is now up to five models. The new 505 SUV fits nicely in-between the SUV 575, SUV 545, SUV 445,  and SUV 395 models. But it does so much more than provide boaters a mid-sized option in this collection – the 505 is a model all on its own, from the keel up – inspired by the existing models in the Collection but so clearly defined as its own distinct model at the same time.

You can learn more about the development and design of the Riviera 505 SUV in Edition 5 of the 2019 Riviera Experience.

Additional Riviera Collections

In addition to the SUV Collection, Riviera designs and manufactures models in their Open Flybridge Collection, Enclosed Flybridge Collection, Sports Yacht Collection, and Sports Motor Yacht Collection.

No matter what Riviera Collection has caught your eye and checks your boxes, every Riviera model out there is built to last and retains its value because Riviera is so consistent with their design, quality, and customer experience.

Our yacht brokers would be pleased to match you with the best Riviera yacht to suit your needs.

Riviera Sport Yachts Platinum Edition

Riviera Platinum Edition Sport Yachts Now Available

Riviera’s 6000, 5400, and 4800 Sport Yacht models have all been elevated to Platinum Edition status.

Earlier this year, Riviera – Australia’s premium luxury motor yacht builder – unveiled its stunningly gorgeous Platinum Edition Sport Yachts. The range includes the newly upgraded 6000, 5400, and 4800 Sport Yacht models. Each yacht is a shining example of world-class style, sophistication, and elegance.

News of the Platinum Edition models was made in May 2019 when the owner of Riviera, Rodney Longhurst, along with Riviera’s International Sales Director, Chris McCafferty, and Dealer Relationship Manager, Peter Welch, all waterskied behind a 6000 Sport Yacht bearing the new, distinct Platinum Edition colours – silver grey, black, and white, in Sydney Australia.

The 6000, 5400, and 4800 Sport Yachts, which were already breathtakingly luxurious, are now even more so with the Platinum Edition upgrades that include a new silver grey, black and white colour scheme, more creative uses of floor and storage space, and more state-of-the-art finishing touches and upholstery.

Riviera Platinum Edition Sport Yachts – What’s New?

So much has changed with the debut of the Platinum Edition Sport Yachts from Riviera. As the company’s owner explains in a recent press release: “With the Platinum Edition Sport Yachts, you will see the unmistakable addition of hardtops and targa arches presented in Riviera Platinum Silver, along with a silver/grey upholstered sunbed on the foredeck. Electronic arrays, air vents and boot tops are rendered in a stealth-like black finish.”

Additional Platinum Edition upgrades include high-gloss walnut timber cabinetry and trim, pure wool carpet in the staterooms, more lounges upholstered in soft-touch fabrics, Recaro sports helm seats with Alcantara inserts and contrasting diamond hand-stitching, Sunbrella fabric headliners and wall linings, and new Corian-finished bathroom flooring.

In addition to the above mentioned upgrades, each Riviera Sport yacht model received its own set of upgrades.

Let’s take a closer look at each model’s upgrades:

Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition

Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht Series II Platinum Edition at Van Isle Marina

Perhaps the sport yacht model with the most upgrades is the Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht – with so many upgrades the model has now been renamed to the ‘Series II’ Platinum Edition. The Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht is perfect for cruising couples and young families with its two beautiful staterooms, two designer bathrooms, and hull length of 45 feet. In addition to the features mentioned above, upgrades made to the platinum edition of the 4800 Sport Yacht include:

  • Improved, more functional layouts
  • New look and feel for the helm (styled in silver grey and black)
  • New cockpit wet bar including benchtop, refrigerator, ice maker, sink, and two-plate electric BBQ

  • Three joystick control points, with two at the cockpit and one in the helm.
  • Waterfall benchtops and stainless steel sinks and mixer tap in the galley.

RIVIERA 64 SPORTS MOTOR YACHT

12 Things to Do on Your Riviera 64 Sports Motor Yacht

The new 64 Sports Motor Yacht Model from Riviera is set to premiere in 2020

At Van Isle Marina, we are extremely excited and looking forward to the launch of the newest yacht from Riviera – the 64 Sports Motor Yacht, debuting in 2020.

The 64 Sports Motor Yacht is the latest addition to Riviera’s long range cruising family, featuring the collection’s signature spacious cockpit, sporty looks, and sporting performance. The model’s incredible hull was designed in partnership with esteemed naval architects, Mulder Design of the Netherlands, who have created some of the world’s fastest super yachts, so we have a strong feeling this yacht is going to exceed all expectations.Riviera 64 Sports Motor Yacht

In addition to your four entertainment areas onboard, including the impressive mezzanine and cockpit, saloon, enclosed flybridge, and foredeck, the 64’ gives you the choice of three or four staterooms and the option of an aft crew cabin or extra storage space.

With so many of the luxurious features that Riviera is known for also on board, you and your loved ones will be able to enjoy all of your favourite yachting activities in comfort and class. While the number of things you will be able to do on board your new 64’ is virtually limitless, here are our top 12 suggestions.

1. Reel in a Big One

The 64’ Sports Motor Yacht from Riviera is an angler’s dream with its large self-draining cockpit, eight rod holders on the aft rail, and an enormous amount of storage space for your tackle and daily catches. There are large tackle lockers in the transom, more lockers in the side coaming, and deep fish bins in the floor.

For the more serious fishermen, an optional live bait tank can be plumbed right into the transom in lieu of the standard wet locker.

2. Go for a Swim

Enjoy the large swimming platform off the back of your yacht after dropping anchor near or far from the shoreline. The wide and deep boarding and swimming platform comes with an inbuilt swim ladder, making swimming off the back of your yacht a breeze. Just add some floaties and you’re good to go!

Remember to always keep an eye on the children onboard, wear waterproof sunscreen, and encourage wearing life jackets.

3. Prepare Home-cooked Meals

Whether it’s in your thoughtfully laid-out gourmet galley, or outdoors grilling up the catch of the day in the BBQ centre, cooking onboard the 64’ Sports Motor Yacht will be just like cooking at home, or better!

Cook up a huge feast for all your guests in your C-shaped kitchen equipped with a full-height refrigerator with two freezer drawers, a three-burner electric cooktop, twin sinks, dishwasher, and microwave convection oven.

The triangular working area is so efficiently set up on this model and the nearby saloon means plenty of room for you to socialize with guests while preparing the dinner.

4. Day Trip the Beach

front of the 64 riviera sports motor yachtWhile cruising up and down the coastlines, why not head back to shore for a few hours? Doing so is easy using your 3.6-metre tender with 50hp jet. Simply launch it via a low-profile davit from your foredeck.

Stuck on where to go? From Van Isle Marina in Sidney, BC – where you will be acquainted with your new yacht as soon as she arrives from Australia – head north to any of our favourite boat-only destinations on and around Vancouver Island.

From any of our spectacular beaches, you can go for a hike, do some birdwatching, and simply appreciate the beautiful nature all around you.

5. Watersports

The 64’ Sports Motor Yacht is designed for the ultimate mix of watersports by delivering a ton of storage space for your water toys, including your stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, and snorkelling and diving equipment.

6. Whale Watching

Watch for whales from practically anywhere on your yacht, but especially the foredeck, where there is a large lounge area and ample leg room for all. Don’t forget the binoculars and a camera to take photos or videos!

7. Cool Off

Life on a yacht typically means a lot of time spent outdoors. After eating breakfast, followed by hours in the sun, at the end of the day you’re likely to want a place to cool off.

Not to worry, the 64’ allows plenty of shelter from the sun, while still allowing you to view the outdoors with the one-way-vision glass panels extending from the cabin superstructure.

Additionally, the mezzanine can be enclosed and the air-conditioning cranked for maximum cooling comfort when you’re craving the cold. You can find similar relief in any of the staterooms.

8. Cocktail Party

Turn your cockpit into a cocktail party easily enough with the nearby wet bar that includes a 190-litre refrigerator, 100-litre icebox, and sink.

An adjacent BBQ centre with twin barbecue plates and fibreglass benchtop ensure there’s enough space to prepare appetizers to go with the cocktails. The conversation will soon be flowing around the folding feature teak  table.

If it’s wine you would rather, choose something from your 27-bottle wine fridge within your galley – where there is also a glass storage area.

9. Host a Child’s Birthday Party

Be the coolest mom, dad, or grandparent around by hosting your child or grandchild’s birthday party on board your yacht this year. We believe it will be one of the most memorable parties they’ve ever had!

After an afternoon of fun in the sun, there’s plenty enough room to keep everyone together for games and snacks with the galley, foredeck, or mezzanine. You’ll be able to keep an eye on everyone from the saloon. For supervising the littles ones, there is plush seating for four or five guests on the port side of the saloon, along with three director’s chairs and more seating at the starboard-side dinette.

10. Retreat to Relaxation

After a long day enjoying the water, head up to the enclosed flybridge to your first-class lounge where you can sit back, relax, and marvel at the beauty of the Pacific Northwest coastlines all around you. When you’re ready to tune-out completely, you can do so with your favourite show or sports team on the flybridge’s large flat screen TV – which is just one of a few TVs onboard.

11. Go Bluewater Cruising

The Riviera 64’ Sports Motor Yacht is designed for some serious bluewater cruising, with a massive 22.5kW genset, 6500-litre fuel tank capacity, and standard twin MAN V8 1300hp (970 kW) diesels.

And did we say storage? On top of the storage mentioned in the cockpit, the staterooms offer 9 storage areas in total, while the foredeck offers heaps more storage space so you’ll be able to store everything you need for weeks and months out on the open water.

For safety’s sake, take comfort in the model’s life raft and safety cell, which are housed at the rear of the bridge.

12. Do Your Laundry & Sleep Soundly

If you’ll be yachting for extended periods – just what the 64’ Sports Motor Yacht is designed for – you’ll appreciate the model’s large laundry closet with separate washer and dryer.

Exhausted from a day outdoors, when you retire for the evening, you’ll find the accommodations onboard the 64’ to be spacious, luxurious, and comfortable. You’ll feel so well rested after being lulled to sleep in your full-beam master stateroom complete with a central king-sized bed with plush headboard.

You’ll also appreciate the comfort of the room’s lush carpet, elegant LED lighting overhead, bedside tables, 40-inch LED TV, and large hull picture windows. Your guests are also sure to sleep well in their VIP guest stateroom with a queen-sized bed or the additional guest stateroom with two adult-sized single beds.

More Information on the Riviera Sports Motor Yacht Collection

With the addition of the 64’ coming in 2020, the Riviera Sports Motor Yacht Line is now up to four models. The new 64’ fits nicely in between the 68 Sports Motor Yacht, which debuted in 2017, and the 72 Sports Motor Yacht, which debuted in 2018, giving new owners a more mid-size option.

So why add to the line? Riviera saw plenty of success with its earlier Sports Motor Yacht models, and the 64’ is already garnering plenty of interest worldwide.

“The Sports Motor Yacht philosophy has been well embraced the world over, with over 20 yachts purchased by owners in Europe, the Americas, New Zealand and Australia over the past 18 months,” stated Rodney Longhurst, Riviera Australia owner, in a press release. “Our highly experienced international design team has risen to the challenge of optimizing the onboard space, ensuring the yacht offers beauty, amenity and functionality,” he adds.

As with all Riviera models, this newest addition also has a glass cockpit, touchscreen displays, fingertip joystick control, electric steering, and state of the art electronic and engine systems. You won’t believe how incredibly fun and easy to operate Riviera Sports Motor Yachts can be!

Riviera Yacht Owners Sandy and Beth Seney

Riviera Yacht Owners - Beth and Sandy Seney

Riviera Yachts are designed and built in Queensland, Australia, at the largest luxury yacht building facility in the Southern Hemisphere.  Their yachts are highly sought after around the world for their high performance, fuel efficiency, luxurious finishing touches, smart layouts, and soft-riding, sure-footed hulls.

As Western Canada’s exclusive authorized dealer of Riviera Australia motor yachts, we at Van Isle Marina are here to help you find the best Rivera model to meet your needs, just like we helped Sandy and Beth Seney, who were recently featured in Experience, Riviera’s digital magazine.

Riviera & Belize Yachts

Avid motor yacht enthusiasts from Vancouver, BC, the couple shared their story of how they came to be the proud owners of a brand new Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge. Our team at Van Isle Marina was pleased to support them in their journey to becoming Riviera owners.

“We saw the Riviera 52 at a local boat show and immediately decided she was what we wanted,” Sandy recalls of how they decided which motor yacht would meet all of their needs.Sandy and Beths Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge

One of the standout features of the 52 Enclosed Flybridge model that appealed to Sandy and Beth was the internal staircase to the flybridge, as well as the glass-enclosed flybridge itself. “No more plastic windows!” Sandy noted.

The flybridge of the 52 also features forward and rear lounges, a wet bar, and twin seats in the helm – another standout feature for the couple, who appreciate that there is no helm station in the saloon, giving them more space in the living area.

Additional features on the Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge motor yacht include three staterooms, two bathrooms, large boarding platform, barbeque and wet bar station, laundry closet, wide side decks, anchoring station, rear glass bulkhead, premium finishes, the best brands in audio and video equipment, and joystick steering that makes operating this model extra simple. In all, the layout of Riviera’s enclosed flybridges offer plenty of space, with the galley aft and dinette and lounge forward all on the same level.

“And we can’t get over how fast she is with the twin Volvo Penta engines and pod drives,” Sandy adds, referring to their Volvo Penta D11-IPS950s delivering 750 hp each.

The inverter, generator, and water capacity of Sandy and Beth’s desired yacht was also important to them, given they seldom go into marinas or tie up to docks. “We prefer to anchor somewhere on our own,” Sandy says.

Sandy and Beth named their new Riviera 52 Enclosed Flybridge ‘Sweet Thing’, after an expression Beth’s mother once used to describe Sandy. She tells Riviera magazine: “My mother referred to everyone as either a ‘sweet thing’ or an ‘interesting character’. It was not good to be known as an ‘interesting character’! “Fortunately, she referred to Sandy as a ‘sweet thing’. Hence the name,” Beth shares.

After selecting the 52 Enclosed Flybridge out from a crowd of other boats during a boat show, the pair enlisted the services of Van Isle Marina to help them acquire the yacht and make it theirs. They visited the Riviera yard in Australia on a number of occasions, taking a keen interest in the build of their investment. Riviera offers this option to owners who have bought brand new and are customizing their models, which is all part of the exclusive Riviera Experience.

The couple spent some time inspecting the build of their new yacht as she was being built at the company’s headquarters in south-east Queensland, Australia. Their final visit to the yard was to sea trial the motor yacht before her delivery to Canada. With the sea trial proving more than successful, the last step was simply waiting patiently for her delivery.

Sandy and Beth’s motor yacht was delivered to us here at Van Isle Marina, where we presented it to our very happy clients who were eager to get out exploring. And with all the comforts and conveniences Riviera is known for, it’s easy to see how Sandy and Beth were able to spend eight weeks out on the water exploring the Pacific Northwest upon receiving their Riviera.

One of their first anchorages was Princess Louisa Inlet, a small narrow fjord nearly 100 nautical miles north of Vancouver. Then they headed north to Desolation Sound, a vast, protected waterway with seemingly endless small islands to navigate.

Continuing north, they traveled through Johnstone Strait and on to the Broughton Archipelago, leading toward Pierre’s Echo Bay Marina. These are just a few of several stops the pair made during their maiden voyage – the first of many to come.

Sandy and Beth look forward to sharing their Riviera with their children and their grandchildren this summer as they explore even more of the hidden gems around the west coast, especially all the protected and spectacular bays, inlets, and sounds that make up the waterways of the Pacific Northwest.

Riviera Yacht Owners RendezvousAnnual Riviera Rendezvous

If you decide to follow Sandy and Beth’s path and come to own a Riviera yacht, you’ll be joining a growing group of ecstatic yacht owners who meet regularly to share their adventures and boating knowledge. One such event is called the annual Riviera Rendezvous that takes place each year in June.

At this highly anticipated event, dozens of Riviera yacht owners meet up for an entire weekend to catch up with old friends and welcome new Riviera yacht owners into the family. The 2019 Riviera Rendezvous took place on June 7-9 with Emerald Pacific Yachts in Roche Harbor, a sheltered harbor on the northwest side of San Juan Island in San Juan County, Washington.

Check out the recap from the 2019 Riviera Rendezvous.

As always, the Riviera Rendezvous was an outstanding success bringing together Riviera owners from the Pacific Northwest to enjoy a festive weekend together. With more than 160 people and 44 Riviera Yachts in attendance, proud owners celebrated the ‘Silver Screen’ as movie stars with a potluck, dock parties, seminars, and a catered dinner. It was entertaining and an excellent opportunity to connect with the Riviera family.

The entire Van Isle Marina team is looking forward to celebrating Riviera’s 40th anniversary at the next Riviera Rendezvous happening in June 2020.
