Riviera to premiere sporty and adventurous 395 SUV at Newport Boat Show in California
Australia’s premium luxury motor yacht builder, Riviera, will proudly premiere the 395 SUV in a six-yacht showcase in partnership with dedicated Riviera and Belize representative Sun Country Coastal at the Newport Boat Show in California over four days beginning on April 25.
Sun Country Marine Group CEO Mike Basso said he and his team are excited to showcase the very latest example of Riviera’s sporty and adventurous SUV models to US west coast motor yachting enthusiasts at the Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach.
The red carpet showcase will also include Riviera’s 445 and 525 SUV models as well as the sophisticated 4800, 5400 and 6000 Sport Yachts.
“Riviera is internationally renowned for innovative design,” said Mr. Basso. “The Riviera 395 SUV, the latest model in this collection, cleverly merges a welcoming and superbly equipped cockpit space with a luxurious and comfortable interior to create an alfresco layout that is one of the hallmarks of Riviera motor yachts.
“This motor yacht truly epitomises the combined commitment of Riviera and Sun Country Marine Group to fulfilling the lifestyle dreams of America’s discerning motor yacht owners.”
Riviera 395 SUV – Newport Boat Show premiere
The sporty and adventurous Riviera 395 SUV displays a contemporary elegance, from her entirely new design with feature hull windows to European-inspired fabrics and cabinetry throughout.
She offers two generous staterooms and a large bathroom on the accommodation deck, a spacious salon and an open cockpit perfectly designed for relaxing and entertaining or for a raft of water sports.
The cockpit is an open space for entertaining with comfortable fixed and optional seating for a gathering of adults and is also the perfect platform for all manner of water sports.
A lift-up panel in the transom reveals a barbecue unit accessed from a fixed swim platform so the chef remains at the heart of the conversation looking in to the cockpit forward. A large storage hatch is below the barbecue.
A teak table and comfortable lounge is on the forward port quarter of the cockpit.
Additional cockpit seating is offered on cleverly designed optional fold-out seats recessed into the coaming on the port and starboard sides.
Sunlovers will enjoy the foredeck with its optional large sunlounge in bright Sunbrella fabrics with integrated folding backrests and drink holders.
The tinted-glass bulkhead between salon and cockpit is made up of a fixed window behind the galley, an outward-opening stainless steel framed glass centre door and awning window on the port side behind the lounge.
The finest American white oak timber panelling and cabinetry, skillfully paired with elegantly colored Sunbrella fabrics, enhance the contemporary styling throughout the 395 SUV.
In the light and airy salon, a fully equipped aft galley is on the starboard side while the dining area, with L-shape seating, is on the port side opposite the galley, offering sweeping views.
Forward of the dinette, a leather twin helm-and-companion seat faces the helm with sports wheel, engine controls and an IPS joystick outboard, two large navigation screens and CZone digital switch control panel.
A plush lounge opposite the helm provides views forward and allows the owners and guests to interact while under way.
Hardtop sunroof hatches above the helm and forward lounge slide back to provide ample light and air.
The lower deck provides sleeping accommodation in comfort for five adults in two staterooms.
The master stateroom forward includes a queen-size walk-around double bed while the large and light midships stateroom offers full length twin beds athwartships to starboard and a single bed set along the port side.
The master stateroom has ensuite access to the bathroom that includes a vanity, toilet and separate shower stall with a frameless glass door. With two-way access, the bathroom can also be utilised by guests in the second stateroom and as a day head.
Power and performance for the 395 SUV is provided by the twin Volvo Penta D6-IPS 500s with in-line six-cylinder 5.5 litre common-rail diesels which are both turbo and supercharged for incredible low RPM response producing 272kW/370hp working together with the perfectly matched IPS 1 pod drives with twin counter-rotating forward-facing propellers. The engines and drives deliver very impressive fuel efficiency, low noise levels, long cruising range, high top-end speed and exceptional maneuverability through joystick control.

They include flexible and spacious accommodation spaces and tender garages beneath their cockpits.
Power and performance for these SUVs is provided by twin Volvo Penta IPS pod drive systems that deliver very impressive fuel efficiency, low noise levels, long cruising range, high top-end speed and exceptional maneuverability through joystick control.
