Project: Evo Velar 70

Valerio Rivellini, the well-known naval engineer and yacht designer who made his mark with the creation of the innovative Evo Yachts models, presents a groundbreaking concept standing out for originality and appeal. Velar 70 is a 21 meters  original design explorer yacht with refined, minimalist interiors, designed for sea lovers who want to enjoy comfort in cruising keeping a careful eye on consumption. This new appealing project is the perfect match between creativity and ease of construction, combining strong points of a motorboat and a sailboat. Rivellini is the designer of a series of internationally appreciated projects, such as Evo R4, the latest Evo R6, recently awarded at Cannes Yachts Trophy 2019 for the best exterior design, and Evo T2, a best-of-breed tender built with remarkable attention to detail. He is also involved in successful projects as Gozzo, a double-ended traditional Italian fishing boat designed and built by Mimi. Creativity-driven design, focus on innovation and form and function solutions are the highlights of his work. Velar 70 stands out for its comfort and generous exteriors, combined with refined, minimalist interior design. The big ship’s wheels give the owner the feeling of helming a sailboat, while the yacht can also be handled from the more protected and comfortable helm station in the deckhouse. A joystick can replace the wheel in case of complicated maneuvering or rough sea. The boat’s design is minimal and functional but fully appointed with accessories that ensure a high level of comfort without being visible, such as the tender crane and the multi function sea ladders. The glazed surfaces in the deck-house can be fully retracted turning the boat into a pure open with T-top. Another important feature of Rivellini’s work is his close attention to the evolution of the different tendencies in yacht design. The trend that inspired this project is the return to a traditional way of living the sea, enjoying the time on board and the surrounding landscape, looking for calm, comfort and conviviality rather than performance in navigation.  The result is a type of product both for families and singles, appealing to a broad segment of the international market. The interior layout offers four cabins for eight guests: a VIP cabin forward, an owner’s suite with a living room overlooking the sea and two double guest cabins. All the settings are roomy and comfortable for long stays on board. The yacht is powered by a pair of Volvo 480hp engines, with IPS forward looking dual propeller pod drives.  Cruising speed of around sixteen knots are anticipated.
