Naples, Italy-based Evo Yachts is to exhibit for the first time at the 2017 Paris Boat Show next month. The event also represents the debut of Evo Yachts France, a new dealership led by Jean Marc Bichot for the France and Corsica markets.

With two operating bases in Port Fréjus and Saint-Raphaël, Evo Yachts France consolidates the Italian builder’s already vast and close-knit sales and service network, which is structured to deliver assistance to owners before, during and after a sale.

On display in Paris will be an Evo 43’ HT in its new ‘enchanted blue’ livery, one of the yard’s most recent models. It stands out for its latest generation full-carbon T-top.

Designed by Studio Rivellini and built by Blu Emme Yachts, the 13m day cruiser is equipped with a pair of Volvo Penta IPS 600 engines (delivering total power of 870hp) for a top speed of 38kt and a cruising speed of 28kt.
