Triple IPS option for Riviera’s 51 Series II models...

Industry News

Beyond the standard shaft-drive package, the option is available for both Open Enclosed Flybridge versions.


With more than 150 of these classy three cabin cruisers already on the water, the Volvo Penta IPS option not only delivers improved performance in every respect, but also extra space amidships.
The standard layout provides storage for, say, diving and fishing gear. The extra room allows space for crew’s quarters, a bunk as well as a ‘wet cell’. Access to the space is via a door from the cockpit. There is also an option to provide a second access via a hatch in the saloon. The space includes the boat’s genset, air-conditioning units and battery banks, so servicing couldn’t be simpler. It is also used to access the front of the three Volvo Penta IPS engines. Main access to the engines is via the hinged cockpit floor that lifts on an electric actuator.
The fuel tank is forward, immediately behind the accommodation bulkhead, offering low noise in the accommodation area.
The IPS propelled option features an entirely new hull, developed by Riviera’s design team in consultation with Volvo Penta senior designers. Deadrise at the transom is 15 degrees.
The new propulsion option builds on the features of the Riviera 51 Series II model launched at the 2008 Sydney International Boat Show.
