Project: Evo Velar 78

In December 2019, designer Valerio Rivellini launched a new concept for a stunningly innovative 70 foot yacht that also incorporates the strengths of a sailboat. This concept has been transformed into a working project through synergy between the designer’s desire to break free of convention and the strategic vision and construction capabilities of Evo Yachts, the Blue Emme Yachts brand that has built a reputation on the market both for its range of open yachts with “XTension” bulwarks and for its tenders. In partnership, they developed Rivellini’s Velar 70 concept and transformed it into the Velar 78, with content and dimensions that make it a better fit for the shipyard’s development plans. Velar 78 is a 24 meter explorer motor yacht with a refined, minimalist design created for a leisurely and relaxed lifestyle at sea. It is a yacht that defies classification, combining the strengths of both motor yachts and sailboats.  Velar 78 goes beyond the expected. The big yacht wheel gives the owner the sensation of captaining a sailboat, while the helm station in the deck house offers a protected alternative out of the elements, equipped with a joystick drive that is perfect for complicated maneuvering or in rough seas and replaces the wheel, like on an aircraft. The glazed surfaces in the deck house are designed to disappear completely out of view, turning the boat into a pure open with T-top.  Velar 78 is a yacht for owners who want to experience the thrill of travel in a new but yet traditional way, mindful of reduced consumption and eco-sustainability. The keywords are contemplation, sharing and convenience. This model therefore represents the first step in a new direction of innovation and real progress, as well as a confirmation of the successful partnership between the shipyard and the designer. Evo Yachts and Valerio Rivellini are back at work together after creating high profile models like the multiple award winning R4, R6, and T2 tender.  With the Velar 78, on which construction work recently began and will be completed in early 2021, Evo Yachts adds a new series, the Velar line, to expand the existing range: the R-Line, with the R4, R4WA and R6 models, and the T-line with the T2 and, coming soon, the T3 model.
