The new model was designed by Studio Tecnico Rivellini, with interiors and exteriors by Valerio Rivellini, and built by Blu Emme Yachts, with a minimalist concept.
The standout feature of the second 13m motoryacht is the accessibility between the stern beach area and the bow by around the helm station. This characteristic is borrowed from fishing boats and integrated into the Evo Yachts collection.
Evo WA is fitted with ‘XTension’ stern sidewalls that can be opened hydraulically in less than 30 seconds by simply tapping a touchscreen. This increases the space in the beach area by 40%, turning it into a sea terrace covering over 25sqm.
This is Evo WA’s original solution, with a series of arrangements possible according to the owner’s needs and the time of day. The options include: up to three chaises lounges, a retractable table in the centre or sun lounging cushions that can be converted into benches or used as comfortable floating mats.
It can also be fitted with the stern transformer, a convenient platform that rotates through about 270 degrees and acts as a gangway, a bathing ladder, a diving platform or a tender lift. The same area also contains a hideaway cooking area that can be fitted with an induction hob, a teppanyaki griddle or a BBQ, according to the owner’s wishes.
All operations on board 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 Evo WA is powered by Volvo Penta IPS 600 (2 x 435hp) engines, combined with the 18° deadrise deep-V hull, giving the yacht a top speed of 40 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots.
Mercuri brothers, owners of the Evo Yachts, commented: “Evo WA is our new challenge. 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.”
