“Our showcase will provide a unique opportunity, in one convenient location, to experience Riviera today, the finest yachts we’ve ever designed and built in Australia.

“Motor yachts that are world-class in every respect; that are so quiet and smooth, so technically superior, so luxurious and just so capable offshore in the blue water.

“Our team of more than 900 craftspeople work in an ever-expanding and more technically advanced facility, continuing to evolve the design, quality and technology of our yachts,” said Rodney Longhurst.


Riviera 585 SUV – World Premiere

The new 585 SUV is the culmination of 10 years of evolution and the launch of more than 220 SUV yachts from 39 to 64 feet in length since Riviera pioneered the SUV concept with the 445 model in 2012.

The Riviera design team’s clever use of space aboard this new yacht has created an exceptional design, including three large staterooms and three bathrooms, as well as a marvellous 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.

She offers the latest generation SUV design qualities including an expansive water sports space where the cockpit opens out to the boarding platform, a superb semi-enclosed alfresco deck and an inviting foredeck entertaining space with a comfortable wraparound lounge.

Her interior is rich with premium fabrics, exquisitely hand-finished exotic timber cabinetry, in-vogue lounges, and plush carpet in all staterooms

Power for the adventurous new 585 SUV is provided by twin Volvo Penta D13 IPS 1200s, rated at 900 hp (662 kW) each, or twin Volvo Penta D13 IPS 1350s, rated at 1000 hp (735 kW). Both options deliver exceptional power-to-weight performance.

Riviera Festival of Boating

The display will also host the unique Riviera Festival of Boating across three days aboard multiple Riviera yachts and the floating Riviera owners’ lounge.

Riviera owners are exclusively invited to participate in a program of boating education and training workshops, including ladies’ skippers, offshore seamanship, understanding radar, safe anchoring and mooring, preventative maintenance, navigating at night and onboard power systems management as well as the Riviera experts panel open session.

All these programs are designed to encourage Riviera owners and their families to enjoy their ultimate boating experience with Riviera.
