Built and distributed to American customers, the flagship model from the new Evo Yachts brand, features touch-pad technology, tropical air conditioning, and Kenyon grill. What's more, she expands 40% in just 30 seconds.

The innovative 13-meter day cruiser was created to the exterior and interior design by Studio Tecnico Rivellini as the first model of Evo Yachts, a shipyard born in Napoli in 2015, part of the Sea Engineering Group.

The yacht's clean angular lines were conceived to remain intact, as long as fenders and the automatically foldable anchor are kept enclosed in a hydraulically operated locker, as shown in this latest mesmerizing video.

The stern features the boat's principal novelty. At the mere touch of iPhone or iPad, the bulwarks open, increasing the usable space of the beach area by 40% in less than 30 seconds, thus, converting aft platform into a spacious terrace that can be configured according to the guests' needs through easy-movable pouf seats, built-in deck chairs, a retractable table and transformable sunbed composed of floating cushions. This way the yacht offers comfort and space proper of twice as larger boats.

The cockpit in the US model boasts a prolific wet bar, containing two Kenyon grills, countertop and sink. The icebox beneath the pilot's seat has a remarkable capacity of 47.5 gallons. The area can be shaded by a cabriolet style bimini, which disappears in the deck thanks to a hydraulically handed locket in carbon fiber.  

The interior spaces have tropical air conditioning and are made of noble materials, such as teak, glass, and leather. The ergonomic two-cabin layout is quite roomy for the boat of this size, being able to accommodate up 12 people onboard, due to the choice of compact Volvo IPS engines.

With a range of 300 nautical miles, the all-composite boat comfortably cruises at a speed of 30 knots and achieves a maximum speed of 38 knots.

Evo 43 model was first presented to the American market in 2016 on the occasion of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Evo Yachts' range is distributed through G Marine dealers in the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
