Yachting Magazine took the Riviera 525 SUV out for a spin in the Tasman Sea in Sydney, just before the opening of the Sydney International Boat Show. We cruised by world-famous Bondi Beach and other beautiful parts of Sydney’s coast.

The 525 SUV fills the gap in a model series that includes a 445 and a 575. Our test vessel was powered by twin 725 hp Volvo Penta IPS950 diesels, providing an easy 24-knot cruise speed.

She accommodates six guests in three staterooms and has two heads, but her cockpit is the focal point. The large amount of space — 91.5 square feet to be exact — in the cockpit provides a perfect outdoor entertaining space, and makes it a good boat for scuba and free diving. Plus, there’s a Kenyon grill on the transom that can be manned from the swim platform.
