Project: Evo R6 Open

Evo Yachts presents the project of the R6 Open which was planned to launch at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2020. Signed by designer Valerio Rivellini, the new eighteen meter sport yacht is the open version of Evo R6, the successful R-Line flagship launched last year, also at Cannes, from which it inherits the elegant design and flexible spaces.  Compared with the classic version, the new R6 Open features a steel roll-bar in place of the t-top, consisting of a suspended wing that connects the two uprights. The resulting design has sporty, flowing lines that perfectly convey a feeling of lightness. And this focus on lightness is also clear to see in the details, like the decision not to place the antennas on the wing itself, but in a raised profiles above it, so that they become an integral part of the structural design. A retractable bimini provides shade for the pilot seat and the forward section of the cockpit, which is fitted out with a big dining area and illuminated at night by courtesy lights on the roll-bar, in an evocative play of light. This outdoor area is joined by three more: from the spacious forward sunbathing area with facing bow seating, to the sunpad island in the beach lounge, and finally the modular swim platform in the stern, with its multiple uses.  Like all the models in the Evo Yachts range, the beach lounge area is the stand out feature on the boat, not least because of the yard’s signature “XTension” bulwarks system, which opens out sideways in a matter of seconds to increase the available space by 40%. The central sunpad is spacious enough to house a 2.85-meter tender beneath it.  The layout of Evo R6 Open is an invitation to socialise and relax in an immersive experience, at one with the natural environment. Despite being a pure open, the below deck area offers every comfort and plenty of headroom, with a layout that features a dinette, the owner’s cabin, two doubles for guests in the stern, and two bathrooms.  With two possible engine configurations, a pair of Volvo 600 and or optional 750hp with IPS pod propulsion the Evo R6 Open has a top speed of 35 knots and a range of 280 miles.
