2014 Riviera 445 SUV
The Riviera 445 SUV was designed with versatility in mind and features a comprehensive list of practical features which make it perfect for a wide range of activities on the water.
The new Riviera 445 SUV features all the familiar lines of the Riviera brand and we especially like the attractive layout and the full no-nonsense Flybridge-scale cockpit. The yacht if fitted with two cabins and two bathrooms which can accommodate up to six persons.
The SUV also features a single, flexible saloon seating design that multifunctions for dining, cocktail, coffee, reading, lounging, even extra sleeping.
At the heart of the Riviera 445 SUV sit two Volvo IPS 600 D6 engines (standard) which deliver a maximum output of 320 KW (435 Hp). The engine is fueled by a 2,000 L / 528 US Gal fuel tank.

Great boats come from great genes
What would prompt us to pursue such a tangent and create a new kind of boat like the SUV?
Well, right away, this is not just us at Riviera sitting around blue-skying these notions.
As you may be well aware, we go to great lengths to constantly talk with owners around the world (over 50 percent of our boats are shipped internationally) about the way they use their vessels— or might like to.
It just relentlessly improves the breed.
And there seems to be, in recent times, a sizeable group of owners who really warm to such a crossover craft.
This has inevitably led us to create what is probably a world first, with the Riviera SUV.
In many ways, it’s really your idea.
The new 445 SUV is in all respects a true embodiment of Riviera heritage.
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.
2014 Riviera 445 SUV Key Features:
Like having two boats
Like our Sport Yachts and the newer Flybridge models, the SUV embraces a single, much larger, flexible saloon seating design that multifunctions for dining, cocktail, coffee, reading, lounging, even extra sleeping.
Up ahead of that is the protected command helm centre, comfortably sheltered within this main deckhouse saloon. It’s like having a very spacious Enclosed Flybridge on the main deck level.
And back aft, a new galley design sits centre-stage between the saloon and cockpit, in quiet conversational proximity to the aft-facing mezzanine lounge, just outside.
But that’s really, like any traditional Flybridge, the only fixed amenities (apart from copious side lockers and sink/fridge), in the entire large cockpit area. Stowable tables and chairs can be brought out when needed.
More room and more style
Super-efficient use of space is fully capitalised upon below decks, indebted to CAD and the IPS propulsion configuration.
This opens the way for guest accommodations to dominate amidships and extend beam-to-beam, offering up to three additional berths. Yet leaving plenty of spare volume for large, concealed cupboard space.
The opulent Master Stateroom forward allows for a queen size island bed of a full two metres in length. The bed is also a useful storage facility itself with large drawers under and flanked by
full-length wardrobe hanging space.
In between both these large staterooms there is plenty of room for two generous and beautifully appointed bathrooms: a guest/day head aft to starboard and an ensuite for the master forward to port.
It’s down in this area that you’ll probably notice, even more, another advancement that the 445 SUV ushers in:
International yacht interior designer Georgia Dirudi has created an entirely fresh design scheme for internal spaces.
It introduces a whole new-look palette of calming but warm colours: champagne, crème, straw, manila with a fresh touch of colour; in surfaces of laminate, leather, suede, mirror, American oak, plush sisal carpet and subtle waffle fabric textures.
