Naples, Italy-based Evo Yachts has entered the centre console market with the new Evo CC. Designed by Italian naval architect Valerio Rivellini, the 13m vessel is said to redefine the outboard engine daycruiser category and completes the yard’s range of 43ft open models.

Distinctive features include the outboard engines, the central driving console, and a series of original design solutions to ensure the utmost comfort on board.

“This new centre console vessel is without doubt inspired by the previous Evo Yachts models: the real challenge was in fact to be consistent with the brand’s stylistic features and family feeling, while producing a boat that is fast, sporty, functional and targeted specifically at the world of owners attracted by the practicality and performance of outboards,” says Rivellini.

The aft cockpit has a solid teak deck throughout, a 2m x2m sun lounging pad that can accommodate three guests, and a 46cm height above deck level for maximum comfort.

Moving forward, there is a folding table with a maximum width of 140cm when open, followed by three chairs. All the backrests in this area can be reversed to change the direction in which the seats are facing; the chaise longue backrests can also be reclined, providing three more seats for the table, or can be used as an extra set of cushions.

Even further forward is a central galley work surface, sink and a fridge. A carbon T-Top offers shelter from the sun and extends far enough to provide shade for the three central seats facing the helm station, featuring a curved fibreglass panel containing all the onboard instrumentation.

In the bow, a second sun lounging pad extends towards the anchor compartment.

Below deck is a dinette that can be converted into a “cabin”. A rising table can be used either as a dining table or a bed (or as a sofa area when lowered) and the bathroom has a full-height shower. The stern area is organised as an open space, from which a stern cabin can be created. The boat can therefore sleep up to four people.

“Evo CC reflects the evolution of the shipyard and its maturity, offering a motoryacht that has a broad range of possible configurations, but also offers sumptuous comfort right from the basic model,” said brothers Alfredo and Rosario Mercuri, Evo Yachts’ owners.

“It is a competitive product that reaches out to markets in Europe and America, where we continue to consolidate our presence with the help of our partners in Florida, Mexico, the Caribbean and California. We strongly believe in this new model, which completes the Evo Yachts range and offers even more choice to our demanding owners.”

The new Evo CC has three Mercury Verado outboard options – 350hp (multiplied by three or four engines), or 400hp with three engines. The speed varies according to the engine arrangement, with a top speed of almost 50kt.
