2017 Riviera 575 SUV
Superior versatility in a stylish packageby Sulthoni, on
Nothing compares with the reassurance of owning a Riviera. Practically speaking. Emotionally too. Picture yourself with the tide rising fast at work.
No worries. Now cast a glance at the framed desk of your beloved motor yacht and picture yourself casting off. Onboard your resplendent new Riviera SUV, you are leaving every trivial or overstated matter in your wake. Fresh clean air fills your lungs. Spirits lift. Relationships thrive.
Life suddenly comes into this most astonishing clear perspective.
Now, isn’t that a more pleasurable and rewarding way to live? To seize every opportunity to be a cruiser, entertainer, angler and explorer. Enjoying every moment in the company of the people who matter most, luxuriating in utter comfort and style.
The Riviera SUV Collection, the 445 SUV, 525 SUV and 575 SUV, are a perfect meld of the offshore blue water performance and wide open cockpit of the classic Riviera Flybridge collection, and the famous single level, alfresco entertaining style of the award winning Riviera Sport Yachts.
In other words, you are at the helm of two fabulous motor yachts in one…with twice as many excuses to turn your life into one thrilling new adventure after another. Enjoy! Enjoy!
2017 Riviera 575 SUV
Your Adventure Launches Here
The 575 SUV caters for both forms of luxury motor yachting with equal aplomb.
Making your way to the marina, excitement builds. Will you be in adventurer or entertainer mode on this cruise? Actually, better pack both resort and sport wear ... the 575 SUV caters for both forms of luxury motor yachting with equal aplomb.
So, stepping onboard via the strong transom door you take it all in. No doubt, she is a triumph of practicality and design. You love the sporty fiberglass hardtop design feature, with its spectacular cockpit overhang and triangular, strata glass, side clears - offering shelter and shade. You applaud the timeless teak decking at your feet. And marvel at all that expansive, self-draining, immensely versatile space.
Riviera designers have given you the opportunity of creating a lifetime of happy memories. Out here you can entertain, converse, unwind, swim, dive or fish, all in flagship style.
Cockpit and Mezzanine: Enjoy, enjoy
The Riviera 575 SUV is custom made for cruising, recreational and fishing aficionados alike.
Feel like celebrating? Go ahead, turn up the volume with your separate zone, two speaker sound system.
Feel like unwinding? Retreat to the splendid comfort of the three-seater, L-shaped, hard wearing, contemporary lounge, located forward to port. Gathered around its integrated, craftsman teak table, you’ll entertain and converse with views to die for. And when all that fresh air works wonders on appetites, look no further than to starboard…to the wet bar with its premium dual electric barbecue, ice maker, drawer style fridge and sink.
Time for lunch? Fortunately, you have several just caught snapper in the fish bin...
The Riviera 575 SUV is custom made for cruising, recreational and fishing aficionados alike. You can, for instance, fit a cockpit table, game chair or custom rod holders with ease. And the transom lounge can be shortened to accommodate diving and swimming gear storage, or even a live bait tank. This is pure escape. Designed just the way you like it.
Safety Above All, For All Onboard
As befits a craft of this size, the wide walk around side decks have a no skid surface bounded by a high bow rail with mid safety wire. Easy.
Honoured guests, beloved children, sea going pets... Riviera has worked hard to make everything onboard perfect. That includes championing safe and easy foredeck access. Nowhere is this more evident, or important, than ensuring safe passage in all weathers and conditions to the fabulous foredeck.
Thanks to skillful Riviera design, making your way here has never been easier. As befits a craft of this size, the wide walk around side decks has a no skid surface bounded by a high bow rail with mid safety wire. Easy.
Naturally, being Riviera, high practicality is melded with fine aesthetics. The bow rail is 316 marine grade stainless steel, as are all exterior fastenings like cleats and fender holders.
Practically speaking, you’ll appreciate fresh and saltwater wash down facilities conveniently located at the anchor locker station, along with the remote operated winch. The foredeck’s deep lockers similarly conceal a range of important equipment close at hand yet cleverly out of sight.
Above all of course, you’ll love the perspective up here: Soothing. Uplifting. Privileged. Especially when you exercise your option to fit the double sun lounge. Water resistant, superbly soft and comfortable, it comes with stainless steel rails and protective cover.
Ah, this is the life, Riviera style.
Simply Superior, Inside and Out
Step up to the teak mezzanine steps now and look all around you. It’s the ideal spot to appreciate Riviera’s continuously flowing, alfresco design style in its full glory. From windscreen to transom, it links saloon, galley and cockpit in one seamless, luxurious whole - defining gracious, easy lifestyle and defying comparison.
Now slide closed the substantial tempered and tinted, glass saloon door. Encased in its gleaming, polished, 316 marine grade stainless steel frame, it exemplifies great utility, beauty and substance.
Now you are in the heart of your flagship 575 SUV. Glance around, it’s all wonderful. Dancing with light and alive with thoughtful, handcrafted touches, for a moment you even forget you are onboard your flagship Riviera 575 SUV.
Instead, you have stepped into a grand design harbourside apartment. An apartment blessed with glorious, ever changing water views.
The Ultimate Entertainer’s Galley
The aft galley situated immediately to port: U-shaped and built for two, it is well appointed and nicely removed from passing traffic.
Location, location, location. A guiding principle of the real estate world, Riviera embraces it with a passion to design a galley like no other. The aft galley situated immediately to port: U-shaped and built for two, it is well appointed and nicely removed from passing traffic. That, at least, is the practical explanation.
Emotively speaking, the galley is something else again. It’s the absolute beating onboard heart... Here, and only here, is it possible to spoil guests with gourmet delights, while feeding on jokes and conversation with all in the saloon, plus those out on the cockpit as well.
Simply slide open the bulkhead door, open the large awning window facing aft, and instantly you’re in three places at once, saloon, cockpit and galley.
Equipment wise, you’ll want for nothing: fine designer appliances (naturally, including dishwasher), striking, spacious, soft closing timber cabinetry, solid surface bench tops large enough to accommodate anything you want to dish up. And directly opposite to starboard ...more fridge and freezer drawers.
Food, friends, conversation, laughter ... life doesn’t get any better.
Pride of Palce In The Saloon
No matter how brilliant your journey, wherever in the world it may be, life onboard the 575 SUV inevitably sees all gravitating towards the saloon...morning, noon and night. It exudes warmth and the most magical kind of attraction.
This haven is created by a spectacular combination of peerless design and build quality: panoramic views surround and inspire, made even more desirable by a level of appointments and craftsmanship you find only on a Riviera.
Here you are pampered, rested and supremely comfortable: totally at home in your light filled living room, overlooking some of the most alluring and natural locations on earth.
Superb Comforts, Views, and You
With large, flatscreen LED TV fully integrated with Apple TV, Bluetooth, Airplay, Blu-Ray and sophisticated Bose sound system, let Riviera 575 entertain you.
Reverse cycle air conditioning to the saloon and galley ensures the right ambience is always maintained, regardless of season. Of course with all that glorious weather outside, you may wish to slide open the tempered and toughened side windows and fill the saloon with invigorating fresh air.
Settle into the U-shaped, strikingly contemporary lounge to port. No need to request a table with a view, that’s a given. And the table itself - finest timber and highest polish on an enduring stainless steel pedestal - is as beautiful as it is practical.
After a lingering, long meal, a visit to the saloon’s cocktail cabinet may appeal as you head towards the large, L-shaped, deeply cushioned lounge to starboard, to continue the conversation. Be warned though: a gorgeous sunset may leave you all lost for words...
And finally, to cap off another perfect day, simply press a button and your state-of-the-art entertainment system will emerge from its discrete storage compartment. With large, flatscreen LED TV fully integrated with Apple TV, Bluetooth, Airplay, Blu-Ray and sophisticated Bose sound system, let Riviera 575 entertain you.
Total Command at Your Fingertips
Reach out and wrap your hands around the classic, Le Mans-inspired steering wheel. It feels snug, right, a perfect fit, like the joystick to your immediate left - it gives you pinpoint maneuverability and control.
There has never been a more versatile luxury motor yacht. Nor one easier or more fulfilling to command. If you can drive a luxury contemporary car, have full confidence your flagship SUV is waiting for you to take command, even if you’ve never skippered before.
The secret is Riviera marrying the latest, cutting edge technology with an overriding design philosophy that every facet of life onboard should be wholly pleasurable.
So please, slip into the fully adjustable, Pompanette Platinum captain’s chair with its matching companion chair (with an option of two further helm chairs to starboard). Reach out and wrap your hands around the classic, Le Mans-inspired steering wheel. It feels snug, right, a perfect fit, like the joystick to your immediate left - it gives you pinpoint maneuverability and control, even reversing into the tightest marina corners.
Now look out through the three massive, clear tempered glass windscreens - skipper, this is visibility on a grand scale. Next stop, the idyllic, blue water world!
Spiriting you there with exhilarating power is your choice of conventional shaft drive or innovative pod drive, courtesy of the revolutionary, smooth as silk, twin Volvo Inboard Propulsion System (IPS).
Either way, you’ll have large multi-function display touch screens - easily controlled by an intuitive menu - and an astonishing degree of technical brilliance to guide you. At a glance you’ll take in full vessel controls, engine system monitoring and all navigational aids.
Easy. Pleasurable. Perfect.
Your Masterful Retreat
You will relish the sheer luxury of walking into your own cedar lined hanging wardrobe, complete with full length mirror and shoe racks.
Ownership of a 575 SUV has many privileges, your magnificent master stateroom chief among them. So, you’ve had quite a day: sightseeing, snorkelling, fishing, conversing and entertaining, reconnecting with family, making new friendships and cementing old ones, what could possibly top that?
Well, try this…step down your own half turn, private staircase and into a kind of nirvana, a place of sanctuary, luxury and rejuvenation; welcome to your master suite.
Kick off your shoes and feel the soft, thick, plush pile carpet between your toes. Appropriately enough for a room luxuriating right across the full beam, your bed is king size with so much room either side it is more ‘waltz around’, than walk around. Naturally, the standard of appointments also befit royalty.
Think lovingly finished timber storage cabinets along both perimeters, touch button reverse cycle air conditioning, concealed LED mood and overhead lighting and your own deeply comfortable, always inviting sofa. Those are long sweeping hull windows on both sides with optional opening portholes, perfect to better experience the atmosphere of that exotic hideaway outside when you wake.
You will relish the sheer luxury of walking into your own cedar lined hanging wardrobe, complete with full length mirror and shoe racks. Revel in the quality and convenience of your own entertainment and home theatre centre. And most of all, take quiet pride and pleasure in those decades of hard work being rewarded in kind.
A Master Designed Ensuite
Located to port it is a superb example of Riviera design principles in action: finest materials paired with inspired handcrafted touches and contemporary flair highlights.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so please, take a long appreciative look at your master stateroom ensuite. Located to port it is a superb example of Riviera design principles in action: finest materials paired with inspired handcrafted touches and contemporary flair highlights.

Premium quality mixer tapware, gleaming solid surface benchtops, above vanity bowl with LED lit mirror, frameless glass, self contained shower. Your ensuite features reverse cycle air conditioning shared with the master stateroom and even its own opening porthole.
It’s just another way, fine Riviera design serves your every need, beautifully.
Only The Best For Your Guests
Riviera 575 SUV owners love adventure, entertaining and good company. Fortunately, given the standard of accommodation below decks you will always have a wait list of family and friends eager to share your passions.
The forward VIP guest stateroom is truly ‘VIP’ - your guests are being spoilt, and they know it.
Thanks to smart Riviera design - and tinted, tempered glass, fixed hull windows with privacy blinds - natural light filters into the room creating a warm, calming effect. Twin hatches provide fresh air and more light should it be required.
Naturally, there is ample storage for any and all voyages: cedarlined hanging lockers to both port and starboard, fine timber outboard storage cabinets, and even additional storage beneath the bed. And speaking of the bed, it is queen sized and walk around with good side access and a detailed feature headboard.
Here, honoured guests have reverse cycle air conditioning to cool and warm, flatscreen LED TV and home theatre system to entertain and a high degree of luxury all around to pamper.
Directly accessible to port is the guest ensuite - fresh from the pages of an international design journal it is both gorgeous and practical, also doubling as the day head.
Always Room For More
The Riviera 575 SUV is a generous craft in every way - generously proportioned and appointed, and invariably owned by generous people.

The Power of Technology Are Yours
The Riviera 575 SUV allows owners to select their personal preference of either pod-drive or conventional shaft-drive propulsion to suit their specific geographic regions.
There are four choices for a drive package for the 575:
Pod drive options
• Volvo Penta D11-IPS950 system with twin D11 engines and IPS20 pod-drives (2 x 533kW/727hp)
• Volvo Penta D13-IPS1200 system with twin D13 engines and IPS30 pod-drives (2 x 662kW/900hp)
Shaft drive options
• Volvo Penta shaft-drive package with twin D13 engines (2 x 662kW/900hp)
Includes twin lever controls, bow and stern thruster controls and Auto Pilot at the helm as well as Quickshift gearboxes that are fresh water cooled, as well as (3x) 17” Glass Bridge touch screens
• CAT shaft-drive package with twin C12.9 engines (2 x 735kW/1000hp)
Includes twin lever controls, bow thruster, Quickshift gearboxes that are fresh water cooled, (3x) 17” Garmin Mufti-Function Display screens and Auto Pilot
Window To The Future
State of the art touch screen navigation systems very much confirm Riviera’s commitment to enhancing your time aboard.
The blend of technology, dependability and easy to use functionality places the Riviera 575 SUV at the very forefront of world-class recreational motor yachts of this size.
Volvo Penta’s Inboard Propulsion System (IPS) offers easy joystick maneuverability, Dynamic Positioning System for station-holding while preparing lines and fenders or while waiting off a fuel jetty, as well Active Corrosion Protection and Auto-Pilot.
However, Volvo Penta’s Glass Cockpit takes the overview and control of engines and navigation, including optional charts, sonar and radar (even auto-pilot) to extraordinary new heights…and all in one place.
It also extends to auto-trimming and full joystick steering whilst under way, as well as the outstanding maneuverability of SportFish mode, and the clean presentation of bait using the bypass exhaust features of Clear Wake.
IPS features progressive rate steering, twin lever electronic controls and joystick controls at the helm and in the cockpit on either the port or starboard sides. Joysticks enable low speed steering and also assist with easy docking of your yacht.
IPS systems have twin three blade nibral, counter-rotating propellers that are protected against wear by the premium coating Propspeed, and have stainless steel line cutters for protection from fishing lines, plastic bags and nets. These precision made line cutters create a very efficient cutting action to protect the propellers and shaft sealing without increasing drag or fuel burn.
The shaft-drive 575 SUV models — also with touch screen navigation features — have twin controls operating bow and stern thrusters both at the helm and aft flybridge docking station, as well as Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) levers integrating with cruise control, low speed mode and single lever mode.
Courtesy of the Quickshift gearboxes, owners of the 575 SUV shaft-drive models with your choice of Volvo D13 or with CAT C12.9 engines are able to incorporate Twin Disc’s Express Joystick System (EJS) which smoothly and simultaneously actuates and controls engines, transmissions, propellers and thrusters, enabling a skipper to easily, precisely and confidently manoeuvre the yacht in close docking situations.

C Zone Simplicity
The fully integrated CZone digital switching system enhances the ease of monitoring and operation of the Riviera 575’s onboard systems including tanks, and extends centralised, touchscreen control to lighting, pumps, batteries, entertainment systems and appliances.
CZone allows you to operate multiple circuits at a single touch, energising all lighting and electrics depending on your requirements. It comes pre-programmed with three modes — “entertaining”, “cruising” and “dock unattended” — and these modes can be customised to suit your individual needs.
Other user-friendly features include interior light-dimming, timer controls, automated circuit control, wiper speed and wash functions. There’s also a “service” mode that shuts down all power and systems.
Based on industry-proven Controller Area Network (CAN) technology, the CZone system offers DC and AC switching and over-current protection. Full systems monitoring (with alarms) including AC voltage, current, frequency and kilowatts, DC voltage, current and remaining battery capacity, along with fluid tank levels and indication for systems in operation, is clearly displayed on the 5-inch touchscreen at the helm and 10-inch colour control screen at the saloon entrance.
There’s also the option of additional iPad connectivity, so you can control CZone from anywhere onboard your yacht.
The confident poise of the 575 SUV is just as evident offshore as it is at anchor — her solid and robust hull with keel is the evolution of our rich 36-year heritage of building over 5200 world-class luxury motor yachts that are proven in the often challenging Australian offshore conditions.
Every Riviera built at our world-class facility on Australia’s Gold Coast combines superior- strength hand lay-ups with a watertight collision bulkhead forward and independent compartments throughout the hull.
Our legendary build quality also features vinylester resin in the outer layer of lamination to increase the ability to withstand water absorption. An isophthalic gelcoat exterior provides an impeccable and hardwearing surface finish.
From the waterline down, the hull is solid GRP with reinforced bottom, keel and chines. Structural core material is used in the hull flanks, main deck and hardtop, while precisely fitted, lightweight resin transfer-moulded small parts have a doublesided gelcoat finish and are pre-fitted for a perfect seal when all major components are bonded together.
Riviera only uses 316 marine-grade stainless steel in all our exterior fastenings. All stainless steel rails feature ground and polished welds to ensure a consistently smooth and mirror finish.
Our designers have also placed a firm focus on convenient access to every key maintenance point so any issues can be quickly identified and addressed, and service costs are kept to a minimum.
All batteries aboard the Riviera 575 SUV’s are maintenance free and are individually housed in special battery boxes in accordance with American Boating and Yacht Council (ABYC) standards, as well as the European Union’s CE conformity mark, which incorporates the International Organisation for Standardization’s ISO guidelines.
The 575 SUV includes six house batteries, self-monitoring Mastervolt charging system, plus dedicated engine alternators for each battery bank.
The house power is 24 volt which allows for simpler charging, lower current draw and smaller cables, providing reduced weight when compared to equivalent 12 volt systems.
The 575’s Mastervolt AC-DC inverter (5kW 230V 50HZ/4kW 110V 60HZ) provides power to the icemaker, entertainment systems and all outlets onboard, ensuring watching television while relaxing quietly at anchor or in a marina is now whisper quiet.
LED lights also provide trouble free boating while reducing electrical current draw. The lamps use less than 10 per cent of the power required to run a bulb lamp — no bulbs means no maintenance and long service life.
Additionally, Residual Current Device/Ground Fault Circuit interrupter (RCD/GFCI) protection installed throughout the entire yacht complies with stringent international standards for safer boating.
Four automatic bilge pumps with manual override are located at various points throughout the hull and pump directly overboard.
The flow coated engine room, with acoustic and thermal insulation and LED lighting, can be accessed through a hatch in the 575 SUV cockpit mezzanine floor which, even when open, maintains walkthrough access to the saloon.
An advanced mist elimination system with veins draws moisture from the air and feeds directly overboard. All onboard drains including air conditioning compressors feed into the common drain lines located on either side of the yacht and drain aft. Four automatic bilge pumps with manual override are located at various points throughout the hull and pump directly overboard.
There’s even plenty of space for a gyroscopic stabiliser down here — yet another example of how Riviera is ready to embrace all innovations that make boating even more enjoyable.
Electronic and Systems
Electronics play an ever-increasing role in maximising the pleasure and safety of luxury motor yachts, and the choice of equipment that is available today is vast.
Selecting the equipment that meets your needs can be a very challenging task — and Riviera’s electronics experts are here to assist.
We source the best systems from around the world, we help match technology to individual requirements and work closely with Riviera’s international dealer network to create systems that maximise your boating pleasure.
