Revival OffShore Editions spice up the SportZ’s already impressive inventory with fishing-focussed inclusions to help you snare to snare the catch of the day: upgraded flip-bolster seats, tackle storage, bimini and clears, alloy or stainless rocket launchers, recessed rod storage, and more. Fish don’t tell time or care about the weather, so shouldn’t your new boat be just as mission-ready?

One hull, MANY unique personalities!

Got your heart set on the bow-to-stern fishability of a centre console but the rest of the family don't fancy getting left out in the cold, then you've got to check out the R520. An evolution of the popular R525 cuddy with which it shares its soft-riding hull, the R520's "runabout" layout opens up your fishing opportunities - literally. Insert the optional casting deck infill to create a commanding perch from which to hurl lures, jigs or flies. Close the sturdy walk-through hatch and split screen and zip up the optional clears to escape the elements or fish the enormous rear cockpit with a bunch of your mates. Store your catch in the cavernous underfloor kill tank or load up your dive gear if that's your thing. Drop your skis or boards in the long side pockets to round out a big day on your favourite stretch of water.

  • Bow-to-Stern fishability with greater versatility than any small centre console.
  • The R520 (andR525) represents unequalled value in the 17-footer class.
  • The R520 family offer unrivalled storage options to stow all your gear.
  • An aggressive 20 degree deadrise and generous reverse chines ensures a soft and dry ride that most alloty boats can only dream of.
  • The centrally-mounted 100lt fuel tank encourages long range missions while enhancing ride comfort and stability at rest. 

R520 outboard options 75-115hp

Revival hulls are not only built tough, but they’re also remarkably efficient utilising minimal horsepower to achieve and hold a comfortable and economical planing speed. Capable of handling a transom weight of 190kg, the R520/R525/R530 is ideally powered by a Four-Stroke or DI (Direct Injection) outboard in the 75 – 115HP range.   

Towabililty - 1250kg*

At 1250kg with fuel and perched on a quality braked trailer, the Revival R520-series makes a compelling argument against the average "tinnies" in this segment.

Colour & Trim

All Revival hulls are available in the standard Arctic White gelcoat or splash out with one of eight (8) full or two-tone gelcoat options. SportZ and OffShore editions feature two-tone grey vinyl interiors while WeekEnders are treated to cloth detailing in the cabins.

Colour plays an important part in our daily lives.  It reflects our mood, shows our allegiances and camouflages us within our environment. Colour is nature's mechanism for blending in or standing out. What colour are you?

Tech Specs & Features

Despite its garage-friendly dimensions, the R520 boasts one of the largest rear cockpits in its class.  A wave-slicing 20deg deadrise  ensures a soft, dry ride while the broad stance creates a stable and confident platform at rest and underway.
