Sail-World.com : Riviera launches next model - 565 SUV
Riviera launches next model - 565 SUV

'Bearing Riviera’s classic hallmark design, the 565 is the second model in the new SUV range'    Riviera

Riviera’s design team are putting the finishing touches on the second model in the new SUV range, the sleek, stylish and very spacious 565 SUV, which is due for release in May at the 2013 Riviera Festival of Boating, which is held to coincide with the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

The 445 SUV met with immediate popularity following its launch in August last year, with already eight 445s having been sold internationally and around Australia.

This latest luxury cruiser from Australia’s largest and most awarded luxury boat builder is a culmination of more than 33 years of boat building design, experience and extensive owner feedback from around the world.

Bearing Riviera’s classic hallmark design, the new 565 SUV has been crafted with Riviera’s rich-heritage in mind. Combining the high performance, blue water cruising abilities 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.

The new 565 SUV is a true bridge between the Flybridge, Offshore Express and Sport Yacht -  Riviera_.  

Riviera’s head of design, Stephen Ford, said the new 565 SUV design was based on a similar platform to the popular 53 Enclosed Flybridge.

Featuring three cabins and two bathrooms, the new 565 SUV has a flexible accommodation plan with sleeping capacity for six to eight adults. The stately full-beam master suite features a king size island bed, large hull windows and optional opening port holes for cross ventilation, a walk-in robe, lounge and 32 inch television and DVD player as standard in this model.

'The forward cabin has an optional layout with the choice of either a queen size island bed or a triple bunk bed arrangement, as displayed on hull one. This cabin also features large hull windows and deck hatch for ventilation,' Mr Ford said.

'The third cabin has two metre long bunk beds, making this vessel ideal for extended stays aboard with family or friends.'

The 565 offers a flexible accommodation plan with the option for queen island bed or triple bunks in the forward cabin -  Riviera_.  

The new 565 SUV has many clever design and aesthetic features such as, the sleek, low profile hardtop with two large manually sliding glass sunroof hatches, which bring an abundance of natural light and fresh air into the saloon.

'There is great all round visibility from the helm and the raised seating area in the saloon, large opening side windows provide a real indoor-outdoor feel,' he said.

The saloon features an aft galley with painted and light timber finishes that has almost 360 degree views -  Riviera_.  

'The large helm station to port has plenty of room for electronics including three display screens, controls and the Volvo joystick. There are four high-quality helm chairs, two of which swivel 180 degrees to face the saloon allowing occupants to join in the conversation in the saloon area.

'The saloon features an L-shaped lounge and dining area to port with storage below. We have customised the dining table to allow it to swivel 90 degrees and drop down level with the lounge to create a double bed with cushion insert.

'On the starboard side we have the three seater starboard side lounge which lifts up to reveal more storage below.

The saloon features an L-shaped lounge and dining area, a large helm station forward and aft galley -  Riviera_.  

'The aft galley, which features the most modern appliances with drawer refrigeration, convection microwave oven, optional drawer dishwasher, four plate cooktop with extraction hood, top loading garbage bin, and soft close drawer runners for storage plus overhead storage lockers, and Corian benchtops throughout with infills over the sink allowing for extra bench space.'

A large awning window and glass sliding door opens the galley into the cockpit area, creating one large entertainment space.

A key design feature that sets this model apart is the expansive and uncluttered cockpit space with plenty of storage including, an insulated fish bin to starboard, plus clever storage inside the engine room hatch – simply lift up the hinged cockpit floor and the two large fore and aft fish/storage bins lift with the deck whilst a third square storage compartment is revealed. The mezzanine seating to port also features a top loading refrigerated cool box under the seating.

There is the option to have a barbecue centre in the transom with barbecue, sink, rubbish bin and storage or optional live bait tank or standard storage bin, as well as an optional hydraulic swim platform for a smaller tender.

Mr Ford said another clever design feature on this vessel was the full glass panel on the starboard side of the sliding door, which provides good visibility to both the transom corners from the helm.

'Adjacent to the galley is a wet bar, which features Corian benchtops throughout, a second bank of double drawer refrigeration and an ice maker, plus glass and drinks storage, and a television.

'The new 565 SUV’s décor gives a modern and contemporary feel. Hull two will show the new style interior design, which features two-pack painted finishes, satin finish American oak timber, wall fabrics and timber flooring, which give a true Euro feel. Hull one however, will feature a custom décor utilising Riviera’s traditional Cherry interior requested by the owner. Such interior versatility demonstrates Riviera’s flexibility to be able to create each owner’s dream boat by customising many aspects of the boat.'

The new 565 SUV’s decor gives a modern Euro feeling with a combination of wall fabrics and satin finished, light American oak -  Riviera_.  

The mid-ships fuel tank with 3,500 litres fuel capacity allows the twin Volvo IPS 900 engines a cruising range of about 390 nautical miles. With a moulded hull length of 56’5' and a beam of 16’10', this striking new model will cruise at 23 to 25 knots and achieve a top speed of more than 30 knots.

Riviera offers 15 different models from 36 to 75 feet across four model series Flybridge, Sport Yacht, Offshore Express and the new SUV collection.

In 2012 Riviera celebrated the launch of its 5000th boat, the 445 SUV, a significant achievement in the company’s rich 32-year history.

Riviera also offers the bespoke Motor Yacht line, Belize Motoryachts. Inspired by classic luxury details and timeless style, Belize Motoryachts has recently released the new 52 foot Sedan and Daybridge models.
