Manufacturer Provided Description

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, its 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.

All our learning is on show here again.

The SUVs confident offshore poise comes, to a large degree, from Rivieras 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 systems 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 its wanted.

There seem to be only upsides and upsides to the Volvo system; in efficiency, top speed, acceleration, economy, manoeuvrability 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 intended function of the SUV model.

As the SUV designation implies, the Riviera 445 SUV is a sport utility vessel that can be used for fishing, cruising, entertaining, scuba diving, and all manner of day-boating activities. She is built on the same hull as the Riviera 43 Flybridge and shes obviously directed to owners who dont want the flying bridge and are probably more casual about their fishing, people who want a more all-purpose water-sports boat without the climb.

Bluewater Bred. She is a capable open water cruising vessel that blends contemporary styling with modern marine systems. Its a low-profile design, keeping the center of gravity down, so it should be as at home in areas where bridges are low, as well as offshore. Built to operate in the wide open waters that surround Australia, she is a seaworthy design blending the builders traditional indoor/outdoor livability with current operational technology including pod drives from Volvo Penta and a Mastervolt CZone digital monitoring and control system for lighting, pumps, batteries and a host of other onboard equipment.

The build is typical of Rivieras reputation for open-water capable yachts. The hand-laid hull has a solid bottom and chines up to a point above the waterline where coring begins. Vinylester resin is used for the first hull lamination after the gelcoat for strength and osmotic protection. Theres a watertight collision bulkhead forward and independent compartments throughout the hull. The deck and cabin top are cored structures.


Versatile Cockpit. Forward to port against the bulkhead, theres a large locker with a solid surface countertop, a top loading refrigerator, and an icemaker below. Anglers might use this countertop as a bait prep counter, or when entertaining, drinks and food can be placed here. To starboard, theres a two-person mezzanine lounge seat, with storage below. This seat is a good spot for relaxing or watching fishing action. In the sole between, theres a flush-mounted day-access hatch to the engine room for quick maintenance checks.

Riviera reinforces the sole with a metal alloy plate for future installation of a fighting chair or a fixed table. The transom locker can be plumbed as a bait tank with circulating pump and window, and under the lid, a shelf can be used as a bait prep board. Or, it can be fitted with an outdoor grill, sink with hot and cold pressure water, and a solid surface countertop. Outriggers, padded bolsters, and five rod holders are optionally available, as well.

Stern Platform.
An extended-length version of the swim platform is available, along with a U-shaped stainless steel dinghy rail, to make dinghy or water toy boarding easier. Both the swim platform and the cockpit sole up to the mezzanine level can be teak planked, optionally.

To keep the cockpit uncluttered , there are four under gunwale lockers and one in the transom fitted with stout latches. The in-sole hatches have heavy-duty stainless steel locks and gas struts to hold them safely open. Riviera provides a freshwater washdown outlet, and a handheld hot/cold fresh water shower near the fiberglass transom doorSeveral other details stand out on the aft deck. Theres a molded flat to port above the entertainment console where an optional remote joystick and engine control panel can be mounted, a good idea for those who want more visibility and maneuverability aft when backing down on fish or into a slip.

Salon & Galley

The new 445 SUV emphasizes clear sight lines with fixed and sliding windows on two sides, and features like the massive, polished stainless steel aft bulkhead awning-style window and sliding door, to further the builders inside/outside design concept.

The Galley. When preparing food or drinks in the port side galley, the chef has good contact with family and guests, both in the salon and the cockpit. Storage in the galley is beneath the solid surface countertops and in the portside cabinets overhead. There is a two burner stovetop. Under-counter drawer-style Vitrifrigo refrigerator and freezer drawers are adequate for short cruises and day-boat entertaining. A built-in microwave oven is standard. The galley counters are solid surface with backsplashes and all drawers and cabinets have positive latches. The main CZone digital monitoring and switching systems touch screen display is mounted on the aft end of the cabinets above.

More Rails. And in another nod to safety in a seaway, theres an overhead handrail, recessed into the overhead, that stretches from the sliding glass door to the companionway stairs leading down to the accommodations.

The folding table in the U-shaped lounge to starboard can be manually adjusted to several levels. It dines four to six when up or, as an option, converts to a double bed when down. Leather upholstery and multiple density support look good together and add pleasure for those who choose to enjoy the cruise from the main salon. Sliding windows add to the natural ventilation possibilities.

Satin finish oak is used for cabinetry, bulkheads, and trim as standard, with commercial grade Kentucky oak synthetic flooring in the galley and salon. Optionally, a high-gloss cherry interior is available. The cabinet at the aft end of the L-shaped lounge stores an LED television on a lift.


The Helm
Set to port, the helm is faced by two leather-upholstered chairs that adjust fore and aft manually, and have folding armrests. A two-level angled footrest is provided below the console for both seats.

Views from the helm are good on every point of the compass, with the only exception being the small angle in the aft port corner above the galley. Three pantograph windscreen wipers with fresh water wash downs and intermittent controls help keep the view ahead clear a good idea in case one fails in a seaway.

Throttle and shift controls are located at a height that is handy for both a sitting or standing captain. The VHF radio and mike are situated outboard, along with the main electrical panel. For natural ventilation, there is an overhead opening hatch and a sliding window to port. A/C and defogging vents are situated forward of the console.


The master suite is forward, with two long in-hull windows for good views and natural light, and an opening hatch overhead for natural ventilation. There are 10,000 BTUs of air conditioning and reverse cycle heat, optionally available, dedicated to the master and the adjoining private en suite head. The queen size berth is easily accessed from either side, and there are storage drawers in the base beneath. Other storage includes two cedar-lined wardrobes, one with shelves, the other with a hanging rail. Most importantly, there is full standing headroom through the master compartment.

The private master stateroom en suite head compartment features a contemporary vanity with solid surface top and modern porcelain bowl sink.

The VIP guest stateroom has two single berths running athwartships, and a third single running fore and aft along the starboard side a handy feature for a family with three children, or children with a nanny.

When cruising with another couple, they will be glad to have the privacy of this stateroom, even though it does not have full standing headroom by the beds. It does have sufficient headroom for most people at the entrance where the dresser and mirror are located. By mounting the forward athwartships berth on tracks, Rivieras designers have found a way to join the two to form a double berth.

Two in-hull windows provide good views and natural light, and two opening ports allow cross ventilation, but there is also optional 10,000 BTU air conditioning with reverse cycle heat available. The VIP stateroom has private access to the starboard side head compartment, which also serves as the day head.

The day head compares favorably with the master head in terms of storage, contemporary appointments, and human dimensions. The small teak seat in the enclosed shower adds convenience.

Engine room

Access to the engine room is either through a day hatch in the aft deck sole, or more conveniently, a wide after section of the sole that rises up with an electric lift. Every wire, loom and plumbing line is color-coded wherever possible for quick identification. The entire engine room is finished off in a smooth white coating that looks professional. All thru-hull fittings on or below the waterline have ball valves and double-clamped hoses. Fuel lines are swaged, and a fire suppression system with automatic/manual controls at the helm is standard. Standard power is twin 435-hp Volvo Penta IPS600 diesels.
