ARRIVA FEATURES: As part of US Marine, Arriva claims a legacy spanning four decades of prowess in design, engineering, testing and manufacturing. US Marine's computer-aided design (CAD) resources enable development teams to achieve uncanny levels of fit, finish, integrity and performance. Advanced software applications allow performance modeling at the design stage, for precise shaping of running surfaces, weight distribution, and strake placement. These processes have led to the development of Arriva's cored fiberglass stringer grid, specially configured and foam filled for the dynamics of sustained high-speed operation. Every Arriva hull features meticulous hand-laid fiberglass construction. Bi-axial knit fabric, the primary material in Arriva hulls, yields superior strength and dimensional stability compared to woven rovings. Oversized frame members, fully encapsulated in fiberglass, form a reinforcing grid. A single-unit deck - cockpit liner adds strength while eliminating joints that over time can become annoying squeaks and rattles. Designed and built for continuous full-throttle operation, each model goes through a brutal regimen of stress and endurance evaluation at US Marine's two test centers and at the hands of the Mercury marine Performance Group. Arriva's equipment lists include many luxury features. Vision 2000-series compound-curve windshield systems provide exceptional strength and a special frame that preserves a high-luster finish. Low-drag, high-volume air intakes, custom-cast for Arriva, assure proper ventilation for the MerCruiser hardware within. And full-wrap multi-density seats with two-position bolsters - provide comfort and stability for pilot and passenger. The distinctive instrument cluster is ergonomically designed to offer a clear, quick read. The acrylic cabin door on cuddy-cabin models slides on anodized tracks. A large Bomar foredeck hatch brightens the cabin, and hinges at the side to accommodate inadvertent opening at speed. Gray-gelcoated dash panels reduce glare for unimpaired forward visibility. The electric-lift engine hatch allows easy access to the powerplant. Each Arriva is designed to take full advantage of MerCruiser's V-8 stern drive powerplants; options range to the multi-port injected big-block versions, all driving a standard stainless steel Quicksilver propeller (or two of them if you opt for the dual-wheel Bravo III drive unit). A performance-matched drive system by Mercury Marine is standard. The Arriva line was discontinued in 1999.
