The last of the “Transformers” of Evo Yachts, designed by Valerio Rivellini, is the Evo R6, an 18-metre motor boat that can even be 7.3 metres wide. At the Cannes Yachting Festival she was under the spotlight and once again “Made in Italy” boats has shown that they can set important trends.
Despite the 7.3 metres of beam that can be reached, the look is that of a sports boat, thanks also to the large squared windscreen and the V-hull. Evo R6, the new flagship of Evo Yachts, is “simply” a modular boat. In fact, this boat can change according to time and need, just like the Transformers do.
The boat that changes shape
The Xtensions boards change, open and close with a system of sliding boards that allow you to have a much larger continuous surface area between when the boat is “closed” in navigation mode and when the boat is open. One finger on the touch screen controls and in just 30 seconds you open the walls XTensions. Under the central aft sofa, there is more space for the inevitable tender toys (or even watercraft or tender).
Below deck and in navigation
With all this space on deck, how’s it looking “down”? Wide, from the saloon with a kitchenette that is located just down the stairs to the aft master cabin with a walk-in closet that can follow you in all your passion for fashion and the large real boat bathroom that also wants to be a bit ‘cruiser. In total there can be up to 3 double cabins on board with space even under the beds for storage. Evo R6, despite the cruiser soul reaches 38 knots with 1500 horsepower with a range of 280 nautical miles. R6 is equipped with Volvo Penta IPS 800/950 engines. The hull has a deadrise angle of 18° to improve performance. The EVO yacht reaches a cruising speed of 28 kn.
