Evo Yachts has raised the curtain on a new and exclusive model. By Valerio Rivellini, Evo T2 is a seven-meter boat with an appealing design, created as a superyacht tender but also as a perfect day boat. The end result is a unique craft, offering the comfort and amenities of a sports day cruiser in a seven-meter tender. The Evo T2 has a balanced blend of functionality, comfort, luxury and design, resulting in a means of transport for the crew as well as an elegant and entertaining motorboat for day trips.
Originally designed as a custom project, it will enter series production and launch a new Evo range of day boats for superyachts.
“When Valerio Rivellini presented us the idea of a custom tender, we immediately accepted this new challenge,” said Mercuri brothers, owners of Evo Yachts brand, who added: “Seeing the new Evo T2 in the water today, we can’t help but be satisfied with our decision. We are absolutely clear about our intention to continue production of this model, which opens up a new market segment for us and extends our range”.
“Right from the outset, the owner had very clear ideas: he wanted something luxurious, elegant and high performance, all at the same time. Working with the owner’s manager Tonino Cappiello, we analyzed the products available on the market and decided the best way forward was to design a custom tender. We successfully satisfied all the owner’s needs by building a product that embodies the Evo Yachts spirit in terms of aesthetics and functionality. I’m proud of the end result of this synergy with an outstanding shipyard”, commented designer Valerio Rivellini.
Clean lines and minimalism are the standout features of this exclusive tender, Evo yachts styling associates functionality and versatility with a focus on form creating an almost perfect balance of day boat and superyacht tender.
The tender has a steering console that can be raised or lowered electrically to make driving easier. This solution means that Evo T2 has a height of just 1.45 meters with the console fully lowered, making it the perfect fit for garages and beach areas.
The comprehensive range of equipment on Evo T2 makes it a safe boat as well as offering relaxation and entertainment too. It is fitted with a battery charger, an engine battery, a services battery, a 12-24 volt converter, a quay cable, predisposition for housing and the charge of two Seabobs, table for eight people, an electric winch, a towing hook for water skiing and a hydraulic sea ladder.
Onboard comfort is ensured by a sofa that can be transformed into a sun lounger by detaching the backrest in the central area, revealing a low table beneath. A steel fridge in the cockpit and a practical bimini top complete the onboard amenities.
Another feature that makes Evo T2 unique and innovative in the tender segment is the fully accessible engine compartment, with generously sized front and rear hatches that are sure to make for happy superyacht crews.
The T2 has a 300 hp inboard engine coupled to a hydro jet transmission, delivering a cruising speed of 28 knots and a top speed of 36 knots. This solution makes the tender a perfect fit for reduced height garages and beach areas.
Finally, to facilitate safe launching and hauling up operations, even in rough seas, Rivellini has designed a special system with four balanced lifting points that reduce swinging during boat handling operations to a minimum.
