Evo 43

Recently launched at the Cannes Yachting Festival, Italian shipbuilder Evo Yachts’ latest design is stylish, to say the least. Based on a tranformable hull concept, the Evo 43’s sides open along the boat’s stern quarters while a separate section lifts upward and outward at the transom, allowing the the cockpit to become a multifunctional platform.

Designed by naval architect Valerio Rivellini, of Studio Tecnico Rivellini, the Evo 43 shows off a wonderful black hull with contrasting all-teak decks and a sweeping wedge-shaped windshield. The minimalist overall look of this vessel is stylish, yet discreet and elegant.

Combining cutting-edge naval architecture with contemporary design, the designer aimed of this beauty to develop a boat that features high style and functionality, in an ideal blend and package.

The design of the hull allowed for a 20 percent gain in displacement, compared to similar cruisers, while the twin Volvo Penta IPS 600s engine allow the Evo 43 to reach a top speed of 38 knots and a cruising speed of 30 knots. Range is estimated at 300 nautical miles.

The transformative cockpit is the real focus point here, as the deck measures 270 square feet – 40 percent larger than in its closed position. Controlled by a smartphone or a tablet, the sides of the hull open in less than a minute, while the back panel will allow guests step aboard from a dock or swimmers to enjoy the water.

The 43’s modular seats can be rearranged in different configurations or done away with altogether for a completely open deck.

Inside the cabin, The Evo43 allows passengers to enjoy teak, leather, and glass as decorative materials. Interior amenities include an optional Bang & Olufsen 42-inch television, a glass stairway with LED lighting, and a separate head and shower. There’s nothing left do to, but come up with the money.
