2017 RIVIERA 52' 525 SUV Delayed Gratification

This 2017 Riviera 525 SUV is available now and ready for your next adventure! The best of both worlds. Befitting a yacht of this caliber, the 525 incorporates clever and convenient alfresco lifestyle concepts and ultramodern technology with luxurious appointments … not to mention enhanced serviceability, convenient storage and an exacting eye for detail from fit to finish that reminds you that she is nothing less than an Australian-built Riviera. And while she retains the distinct indoor/outdoor characteristics for which Riviera is internationally renowned, the 525 SUV is far more than a model refinement to suit the industry nomenclature that enhances Riviera’s appeal on the world stage.In fact, after speaking with members of our global family of owners, we’ve seized the opportunity to incorporate a wide range of standard inclusions that in the past may have been considered options. You will sense these additional refinements from the moment you step onboard – double transom doors allow better access from both the port and starboard sides creating a walk-around transom lounge which, in effect, adds the large boarding platform to what is already a full, no-nonsense Flybridge-scale cockpit.
