New Model: Riviera 445 SUV

Sport Utility Vessel, that is what SUV means an acronym which started in cars having a mix of off-road, station wagon, and a modern look to them.  Rivera achieved this with its new 445 SUV mixing the likes of an express with those of a sportfish, and the comfort of a flybridge.  It is encouraging how the 445 SUV manages to scores good points in all areas without little compromise, and in all this still manages to create something new and fresh in the looks department.  To like in the 445 SUV is the aft deck with its mezzanine and its patio door which opens and creates a single area with the aft deck.  Down below is also a good level of space in two large cabins; owners suite to fore,  three berths midships room, and two heads.  Engines are twin Volvo 435hp with IPS pods propulsion.  We don't have speed data yet but I would imagine these to be similar to that of the 4400 Sport Yacht which delivers top end in mid low thirty knots, and cruise in mid high twenties.
