We tracked down the inside scoop on what boatbuilders are up to next.
Riviera’s going to launch the newest iteration of its SUV line, the 515, this coming November at the Gold Coast International Marine Expo in Australia. I, for one, am pumped to get onboard sometime soon, because to be quite honest, I’m a sucker for these boats. The concept does a fine job of melding the do-it-all qualities of express cruisers with the potential for some heavy-duty fishing. The boat’ll come standard with a pair of 600-horsepower Cummins QSC Zeus pod drives, but Volvo Penta IPS options (with various horsepower ratings) will be available as well. Top speed is projected to be about 30 knots, with a cruise of 23.
