After the release of the stylish day cruiser, Evo 43’ – which sealed the Italian brand’s stellar reputation – Evo Yachts has announced a new motor yacht which will carry on its ‘Opening rEVOlution: Evo WA.’
Designed by Studio Tecnico Rivellini, with interiors and exteriors by Valerio Rivellini, the brand-new ‘Walk Around’ springs from the same design concept that has previously set Evo Yachts apart.
The motor yacht comes equipped with clean lines, a minimalist design and it is accompanied by a series of original solutions to ensure that it can be enjoyed to its full potential.
The standout feature of this second 13-metre motor yacht is the fact that you can move easily between the stern and the bow by ‘walking around’ the helm station. This characteristic (which gives the yacht its name) is masterfully integrated in the elegant and contemporary style that is a distinctive feature of the Evo Yachts collection.
Following in the steps of its predecessor, Evo WA is fitted with the original feature that has made this innovative day cruiser so famous: the ‘XTension’ stern sidewalls that can be opened hydraulically in less than 30 seconds by simply tapping a touchscreen. This feature increases the space in the beach area by 40 percent, turning it into a sea terrace covering over 25 square meters. It is in this area of the cockpit that the Evo WA’s most original solutions can be found, with a series of arrangements possible according to the owner’s needs and the time of day.
Options for the cockpit include up to three chaises lounges, a retractable table that can be converted into benches or used as comfortable floating mats. There is also a hideaway cooking area that can be fitted with an induction hob, a Teppanyaki grill or a barbeque.
All onboard operations are aided by the latest generation home automation solutions that allow all the yacht’s navigation parameters and basic functions to be managed from an iPad. The carefully engineered solutions ensure that all operations are extremely intuitive and user-friendly.
The Evo WA’s design focuses on performance. The Volvo Penta IPS 600 (2 x 435 horsepower) engines, combined with the 18° deadrise deep-V hull, give the yacht a top speed of 40 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots.
“Evo WA is our new challenge,” said the owners of the Evo Yachts brand, Giuseppe, Alfredo and Rosario Mercuri .
“Our aim is to expand the Evo fleet, offering owners the possibility of choosing the yacht that best suits their seafaring needs. Customisation and quality remain the shipyard’s points of strength and are also distinctive features of the Evo WA.
“We are convinced that our choices will prove to be winning ones, as was the case with Evo 43.”
The new Evo WA will make its official debut at the next Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2017, where it will be on show with the rest of the Evo Yachts range.
