Riviera can Cannes

Riviera will host the European premieres of two new models from its highly popular SUV Collection, the 465 and 505, at the 2023 Cannes Yachting Festival.

15 August 2023


On show at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023, the Riviera 465 and 505 SUVs share a strong heritage that combines the spirited bluewater performance and open water sports cockpit of the Riviera Sports Motor Yacht Collection with the single-level living, entertaining and relaxation spaces of their Sport Yachts.

The Riviera SUV concept has been widely celebrated since the first model, the 445, was launched in 2012, and now includes seven models from 39 to 64 feet in length. The showcase will also include the popular 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition.

Riviera Australia owner Rodney Longhurst said Riviera and their European representatives were proud to display these magnificent yachts from Riviera’s diverse six model collections from 39 to 78 feet, where every yacht shares the 43-year tradition of evolution and bluewater pedigree.

The team at Cannes will provide presentations on all of Riviera’s individual models, including the new 46 Sports Motor Yacht, 585 SUV and 58 Sports Motor Yacht.


The 46 Sports Motor Yacht offers multiple entertaining spaces that stretch from the deep boarding platform to relaxing foredeck sunlounges and a generous open flybridge with hardtop. The yacht’s accommodation deck offers three double staterooms and two generous bathrooms.

The 585 SUV provides welcoming spaces from stem to stern, offering exceptional comfort while enhancing the superb indoor/outdoor lifestyle features that make the SUV models so popular.

Clever use of space includes three large staterooms and three bathrooms, as well as a generous space aft of the full-beam midships master suite that can be configured as a utility room, laundry, crew quarters or additional accommodation with its own bathroom.

The new 58 Sports Motor Yacht will premiere in late 2023. With a superb blue-water hull design, wide open cockpit, alfresco deck, expansive saloon and accommodation deck comprising three staterooms and two bathrooms, this yacht offers exceptional internal volume.

The four-sided enclosed flybridge is more like a second saloon with a forward helm, twin captain’s chairs and forward and aft lounges. Just like the saloon deck, the flybridge flows out to a very generous and covered aft deck.

Rodney Longhurst said, “We take great pride in the history and popularity that Riviera has enjoyed with European yacht owners since 1985 when our first yacht was delivered to France.

“Visitors to our display will be able to experience the superior engineering and quality, immense luxury and ease of boating, which has earned Riviera international regard, and they will also discover why boating with Riviera is even more enjoyable and relaxing.”

Riviera 465 SUV – European premiere

An entertainer’s delight, the Riviera 465 SUV offers a covered alfresco deck that expands the saloon living space by almost a third, just one of multiple entertaining spaces. She includes a dual-purpose wide, open water sports and entertainer’s cockpit and a foredeck that welcomes with twin sun pads.

A gourmet U-shape galley is aft on the starboard side of the saloon. Forward on the port side, a large folding timber dining table is surrounded by a luxurious C-shape lounge that will seat up to six people. The helm is immediately forward of the galley.

The 465 SUV offers three generous staterooms and two bathrooms on the accommodation deck. Power for the 465 SUV is twin Volvo Penta D8-IPS800s delivering 441 kW (600 hp) each.


Riviera 505 SUV – European premiere

The Riviera 505 SUV blends the design of Riviera’s world-class Sports Motor Yacht Collection with the single-level lifestyle living of the Sport Yacht design.

Her large and flexible cockpit allows for fishing, diving, paddleboarding or simply entertaining with family and friends, while the semi-enclosed alfresco deck forward is the 505 SUV’s social centre.

Flowing from the alfresco deck is the luxurious saloon with an aft galley to port and lounge area opposite; forward the helm is located on the starboard side with additional lounge and dining opposite.

Below, the accommodation deck offers a full-beam master stateroom with ensuite amidships, a VIP guest stateroom forward and a twin-berth guest cabin to starboard with an additional bathroom.

Power for the 505 SUV is twin Volvo Penta D8 IPS 800 turbo diesels delivering 441 kw (600 hp) each. Volvo Penta D11 IPS 950s delivering 533 kw (725 hp) each are available as an option.

The outstanding 4600 Sport Yacht Platinum Edition offers a new style entertainer’s cockpit that features a wraparound lounge. She provides three staterooms on the accommodation deck, including a full-beam master amidships and two bathrooms.

Power for the 4600 Sport Yacht is twin Volvo Penta D6-IPS650s delivering 353 kW (480 hp) each or D8-IPS800s delivering 441 kW (600 hp) each.
