Outer Reef Yachts will reveal a fresh model in the Trident series – the new Trident 650 EVO motor yacht.

Outer Reef Yachts’ new Trident 650 EVO will provide valuable extra space, with an expansive galley, saloon aft, boat deck, aft deck, and flybridge, as well as an extra stateroom with an ensuite.

Due to a recent partnership with Volvo Penta and the installation of the Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) system, coupled with a conventional transmission and SeaTorque™ enclosed shaft drive system, the 650 EVO performs with skill.

The sophisticated Electronic Vessel Control (EVC) System has been designed with an all-new electrical architecture. The upgraded EVC system (EVC2) offers new features, such as a single connection point and management of EVC functions for the vessel and driveline independently.

The EVC2 system ensures faster software download, improved diagnostics and traceability, as well potential upgrades in the future.

“The EVC system connects and manages the internal communications between the engine and driveline, levers and display screen – giving vessel owners integrated functionality and simpler operation,” says Jonas Welinder, Production Planner, Marine electronics at Volvo Penta.


The Trident 650 EVO is the first Outer Reef model to be powered by this new system. However, the EVC system has proven successful onboard other vessels globally.

The Volvo Penta EVC system will be paired with the Garmin Reactor 40 steer-by-wire technology. With this system in place, the Trident 650 EVO delivers enhanced performance, comfort, convenience, efficiency and manoeuvrability.

“We look forward to what the future holds for our Trident Series and will steadily work toward enhancing the owner experience through partnerships like the one we have forged with Volvo Penta and Garmin,” says Jeff Druek, Outer Reef’s President and CEO.
