The Metamorphosis Of The Evo 43 Yacht

No longer is it enough for your gadget or your automobile to do its intended job. We’ve reached an age where consumers want things that do more and luxury purchases are not excluded. In an editorial outlining the ever-changing mindset of the yacht buyer, The Telegraph touches on the changing needs of its consumers and users. They want “adaptability,” the Telegraph writes and none provide an answer to that desire better than the 13-meter Evo 43 yacht, the first ship out of Italian-based Evo Yachts.

Though the Riva 88 Florida features a convertible hardtop roof and the Kormoran from Austria changes into a catamaran, trimaran, monohull, and hydrofoil, the Evo 43 presents an entirely new kind of luxury. With the touch of a button, the Evo 43 shifts from sleek-motorboat to water-borne sun lounger, and the bulwarks open by about 90 centimeters on either side, which increases the sun day by 40 percent (to a total of 25 square meters), the Telegraph notes. Not only that, the extension also boasts an adjustable diving platform and built-in loungers.

In addition to its expanding body, the Evo 43 features hydraulic steps at its rear, which double as a walkway for getting on or off the yacht, or as a platform to lift tired snorkelers or swimmers from the water. The 12-person yacht, retailing for a cool $750,000, includes a dining table, wet bar, foldaway cooking area with a stove, sink, and fridge, an awning or carbon fiber covering, and two fully customizable cabins. Though it weighs a hefty 12,000kg with a 1,000-liter fuel tank and 400-liter water tank, the Evo 43 hits 37.1 knots with sleek ease, thanks to its two Volvo Penta IPS engines.
