By this we mean that all the familiar— and reassuring — aspects of classic Riviera boatbuilding are there: the purposeful lines, the hefty scantlings, the solid feel in a seaway, the spatial sense, the layout, the sumptuous decor. As well as a full no-nonsense Flybridge-scale cockpit.
All our learning is on show here again. The SUV’s confident offshore poise comes, to a large degree, from Riviera’s leading-edge CAD technology and legendary build quality that combine superstrong hand layups with solid GRP bottom and structural core material on the hull flanks, main deck and hardtop, as well as precisely fitted lightweight resin transfer moldings, pre-fitted for a perfect seal when all major components are bonded together.
A great deal of our acumen regarding hull shape has contributed to, for example, aft chine strakes that have a straight run, to enhance both speed and manoeuvrability, as well as a moderate Vee shape going forward, to a precise 14.5-degree deadrise at the transom to stay beautifully composed in a choppy quarter sea without diminishing top end performance.
The extensive Flybridge and Sport Yacht Collections really had a big influence on the choice of IPS pod-drive propulsion as the must-have standard propulsion for the new SUV; confirmed over our now four-year experience and close collaboration with Volvo engineers on seven different Sport Yacht, Flybridge and Offshore Express models and hundreds of production craft.
The system’s twin engines and forward facing, counter-rotating props not only offers exhilerating performance, but precise micromanagement of handling in confined spaces. A skipper— either solo or with a novice crew— can, just using a joystick, direct the twin pod units so as to place the boat easily and exactly where it’s wanted.
There seem to be only upsides and upsides to the Volvo system; in efficiency, top speed, acceleration, economy, maneuvrability and quietness. But one of the biggest advantages is that the bulk of engineering machinery can be positioned well aft, rather than amid-ships, as shaft drive engineering dictates.

The SUV collection is a culmination of more than 32 years of boat building design, experience and extensive owner feedback from around the world.
Bearing Riviera’s classic hallmark design, the new 445 SUV has been crafted with Riviera’s rich-heritage in mind. Combining the high performance, blue water cruising abilities and large open cockpit of the classic Flybridge with the fish raising abilities of the Offshore Express, and the single-level leisurely, entertaining features of the popular Sport Yacht series, has created a vessel like no other, a true bridge between all of them.
Riviera’s Director of Brand and Communications Stephen Milne says the 445 SUV was in all respects a true embodiment of Riviera heritage.
“By this we mean that all the familiar and reassuring aspects of proven Riviera boatbuilding DNA are there; purposeful lines, hefty scantlings, the solid feel in a seaway, spacious layout and Euro-style luxurious décor. And of course, a full no-nonsense Flybridge-scale cockpit,” he says.
“Like our Sport Yachts and the newer Flybridge models, the SUV embraces a single, much larger, flexible saloon seating design that multi-functions for dining, cocktail, coffee, reading, lounging and even extra sleeping if required.”
Forward in the saloon is the protected helm station to port, comfortably sheltered within the main deckhouse, giving the feel of a very spacious enclosed flybridge, yet all on the main entertaining and living deck level.
The galley links the saloon and cockpit, in quiet conversational proximity to the aft-facing mezzanine lounge just outside the large awning window.
The new 445 SUV features two staterooms dominating amidships and extending full beam.
The opulent master stateroom forward has a plush island bed with large under-bed drawers and full-length wardrobe hanging space. There are long fixed-hull windows that bring light and reflections into the master stateroom.
The guest stateroom aft features three single berths, one single along the starboard hull side and two athwartships with storage underneath. There is plenty of space, light and storage in this cabin with two large fixed portlights and two opening portholes, a large hanging locker, drawer cabinet, reading and overhead lighting; making this vessel ideal for the family of five.
The two staterooms are separated by two generous and beautifully appointed bathrooms, a guest/day head to starboard and the master ensuite forward to port.
The Riviera SUV introduces a fresh design scheme for internal spaces, and the Riviera design team have created a whole new-look palette of calming yet warm colours in champagne, crème, straw, manila and burnished orange; in surfaces of laminate, leather, suede, mirror, American oak, plush sisal carpet and subtle waffle fabric textures.
The SUV model series is not only pleasing to the eye, she is just as impressive below the water line, with Riviera’s leading edge CAD technology designed hull with a 14.5 degree deadrise at the transom, Volvo IPS pod-drive propulsion and legendary award-winning build quality.
“The SUV has been built using a superior strength hand-laid hull which is solid GRP below the water line and structural core material on the hull sides, main deck and hardtop, as well as precisely fitted lightweight resin transfer molded components,” says Mr Milne. “So we have a boat of great strength where required with lighter weight components to avoid any excessive weight. These elements combine to aid overall performance.
“A great deal of our acumen regarding hull shape has contributed to, for example, aft chine strakes that have a straight run, to enhance both speed and manoeuvrability.
“One of the biggest advantages of the Volvo IPS system is that the bulk of the engineering machinery can be positioned well aft, rather than amidships, as shaft drives dictate. This allows us to create a compact SUV with all the internal space you would expect from a Sport Yacht and with the blue water capabilities of our Flybridge and Offshore Express.
“The 445 model is really an ideal mid-sized example of the SUV, and we will develop further variations of this exciting new design in the near future,” Mr Milne adds.
The unprecedented new Riviera SUV collection is a completely new model series, which has already received strong interest from Riviera enthusiasts and is yet another innovative and functional design from Australia’s most awarded luxury boat builder.

Utilizing the finest Construction Methods: State-of-the-art digital kitting is utilized to precisely cut all fiberglass and structural foams for the lamination process to ensure that each component fits perfectly. The finest quality joinery is created by exacting CNC precision-cut timbers with all cabinets hand built by master craftspeople. Each mold is thoroughly inspected, cleaned and waxed before the initial application of isophthalic gelcoat is sprayed to provide a high gloss and superior water and fade resistant finish. Closed molding techniques are utilized to manufacture small parts where these precise components require lighter weight and very high quality finishes. The superior internal varnished finishes are achieved by a robotic varnish machine which has a humidified drying room to cure the painted surface. Up to five coats of varnish are applied. Riviera hulls are hand-laid with multi or quad fiberglass matting over core materials such as foam and sealed with vinyl ester resin, due to its superior ability to withstand water absorption. Hull construction is a very intricate and skilled process and hand-laid fiberglass construction is far superior in strength to any other method. The hull and deck surface finishes have great impact resistance. A finished hull can be almost 20 mm thick – solid fiberglass below the waterline with great strength where it matters most. Major structural components of a Riviera yacht are manufactured from glass reinforced plastic (GRP) to give immense strength and service life to the yacht. To produce a high-strength and watertight connection, the joining of the hull and deck is a three-stage process that involves bonding, bolting and internal fiberglass strapping. All fuel tanks fitted to a Riviera yacht are manufactured from GRP with fire-retardant resin, have structural internal baffles for stability and are fiberglassed in place to create great structural strength. All wiring looms, air-conditioning and water lines are color-coded and tagged for precision and identification. Each yacht spends two days being prepared for sea trials and then 4 to 6 hours being put through its paces with an engineer, electrician and engine manufacturer’s representative onboard. From elegantly understated to magnificently bold, only the finest, hand-selected premium New Zealand leathers are used. Superior-grade timbers have been hand-selected including walnut, cherry, oak, teak and wenge to allow the personalization of your yacht. All exterior stainless steel is crafted from high-quality 316 grade which offers better overall corrosion-resistance properties. Riviera glass windscreens are fabricated in premium-grade curved glass and all windows offer resistance to thermal transfer. Every Riviera features durable and corrosion-resistant, anodized aluminum sliding side windows. Call us today for more information at 941-365-9095.
