The new partnership with DKR Marine takes the Italian brand back to USA, starting with an Evo R4 at the Miami Boat Show from February 13 to 20.
Evo Yachts are on their way to Florida. The Italian boatbuilder has signed a deal with DKR Marine LLC, a Company based in Miami, which will handle distribution and after sales service, and will invest in expanding the business on the American market.
The timing is perfect, as on the 13th of February is the opening day of the 2020 Miami Boat Show. Visitors have then the chance of seeing a black Evo R4 WA.
A touch of USA and a touch of Italy
The sporty and sleek 13-meter walkaround, designed by Valerio Rivellini, has a good set of cards to appeal to the American market: not only for the look and outdoor livability, but also for the chance to have plenty of shade thanks to the extending T-top and optional bow and aft awnings.
The opening bulwarks, now called “Xtension”, are among the distinctive features of the model: they provide a 40% extension of the beach area and a 28 square meters of walk-on surface. The other peculiarity, deemed “Transformer”, is the multi-functional, hydraulically powered platform, seamlessly incorporated in the beach area, which serves as a gangway, or a swim ladder, or an adjustable height diving platform.
The Evo R4 WA Black has been upgraded with solutions made to meet the specific needs of US owners, like BBQ grill, icemaker, microwave oven in the dinette and tropical air conditioning system.
A second, fully-appointed galley and multiple storage compartments are part of the interiors. On the other hand, the Italian touch is evident in the upholstery and wall coverings.
The boat is 13 meters long and can host up to 12 passengers. It is powered by a twin Volvo Penta IPS, with the top choice being the 2×435 hp IPS 600, for a nominal top speed of 38 knots.
