No matter what's on your family's boating agenda, the new R530 X-Rider delivers

It’s true…SIZE really does matter. Coming in at a garage-friendly 5.3m (or under 6m on a trailer with a swing-away draw bar) the fun-sized R530 X-Rider is a rare find in a market where boats are getting bigger, but new home lots are rapidly shrinking. But don’t for a moment think that downsizing your Revival means compromising on functionality or ride.
The all new R530 X-Rider borrows the capable R530/R525 platform and dials up the fun factor. Featuring a lockable anchor well capable of accommodating a full-sized winch, a convertible bow-zone, generous underfloor storage, bait well and rear drop in door, the R530 X-Rider flicks a middle finger salute at tinny brigade that have filled this niche...until now!

  • Versatile package that delivers on all fronts.
  • Redesigned helm accommodates up to two 7" head units.
  • Efficient hull design maximises performance without compromising on ride comfort or stability at rest.
  • Unrivalled storage options to hide skis, fishing tackle and family gear.
  • New X-Rider re-write's the bowrider rule book, and creates a few rules of its own.

Designed to squeeze into the average suburban garage, the R530 X-Rider redefines your expectations of how BIG a small bowrider can actually be. Ski. Fish. Just add waterand set your next adventure free.



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. X-Rider, SportZ and OffShore editions feature two-tone grey vinyl interiors while WeekEnders are treated to cloth detailing in the cabins.



The all-new R530 boasts one of the most versatile layouts in its class. A chop-crunching 20deg deadrise  ensures a soft, dry ride while the broad stance creates a stable and confident platform at rest and underway.
