This 2017 Riviera 525 SUV is available now and ready for your next adventure!

The best of both worlds

Befitting a yacht of this caliber, the 525 incorporates clever and convenient alfresco lifestyle concepts and ultramodern technology with luxurious appointments … not to mention enhanced serviceability, convenient storage and an exacting eye for detail from fit to finish that reminds you that she is nothing less than an Australian-built Riviera.

And while she retains the distinct indoor/outdoor characteristics for which Riviera is internationally renowned, the 525 SUV is far more than a model refinement to suit the industry nomenclature that enhances Riviera’s appeal on the world stage.

In fact, after speaking with members of our global family of owners, we’ve seized the opportunity to incorporate a wide range of standard inclusions that in the past may have been considered options.

You will sense these additional refinements from the moment you step onboard – double transom doors allow better access from both the port and starboard sides creating a walk-around transom lounge which, in effect, adds the large boarding platform to what is already a full, no-nonsense Flybridge-scale cockpit.

The swim platform, with lift-out stainless steel rails, also has a number of options to suit individual owner requirements, for example: custom rod holders and a bait preparation station can be fitted for the angler, as well as a 400kg hydraulic lift to assist with tender storage.

Owners have the option of a shorter lounge with transom storage bin for swimming and diving gear, or even a live bait tank with glass front, depending on requirements.

In the floor of the 107 square foot cockpit are separate hatches – with stainless steel lock-downs – providing direct maintenance access to either of the pod drives, as well as a large, central, self-draining moulded lazarette locker to store cockpit furniture and water equipment, and also deep fish or storage boxes to port and starboard.

Forward there is a comfortable three-seat cockpit lounge to port – upholstered in high-quality weather-proof vinyl (This particular boat has optional fabrics) – and there is an integrated table to provide a versatile alfresco entertaining area, and which can also be converted to a day-bed.

Behind the cockpit lounge is a double-plated refrigerated cool box and self-draining bin, as well as manual bilge pump access and lockable cabinet containing battery switches and AC/DC control board.

To starboard there’s a lift-up lid with gas strut which reveals a double BBQ with stainless steel backsplash and LED lighting, ice-maker, sink, solid surface counter top and even more storage – enough to impress even the most discerning chef.

The cockpit’s innovative joystick docking control is also to starboard. This control is protected from the elements in its own enclosed fibreglass compartment.

The GRP hardtop of the 525 extends out and over the cockpit and owners can extend this further with an optional stainless steel and acrylic canvas awning for additional protection from the sun and extremities (included on this boat). There’s also the option of a rear-mounted camera, should owners desire (included on this boat in both cockpit and engine room).
