Ship & Boat International: eNews June 2018
Evo Yachts, Italy has unveiled its 13.04m x 4.52m Evo Center Console (Evo CC) concept. This new motor yacht class has been developed to incorporate a propulsive arrangement comprising either three or four 261kW-rated, or three 298kW-rated, Mercury Verado outboards.
While this flexibility means that speeds will vary depending on the configuration selected, the boat has been developed for a cruising speed of 38knots and top speed of 48knots when utilising four outboards. The Naples-based builder adds: “Performance is optimised by the hull design, with an 18degs deadrise that ensures excellent seakeeping and maximum safety even during tight turns or in rough sea.”
The GRP vessel was constructed using vacuum infusion, and features a displacement of 8,200kg (without the outboards) in unladen mode. The yacht can carry up to 12 guests and houses two dedicated berths. Additionally, a below-deck dinette can be converted into an extra, surrogate cabin, thus creating an additional two berths if so required.
Other features of the Evo CC include: a carbon T-top on deck, to offer crew and guests respite from the sun; a 2m x 2m sun lounging pad; retractable bollards, fender and anchor; and the capacity to carry 1,000litres of fuel.
