Evo R4XT is the perfect example of how, starting from a shipyard’s historic model and modifying it, one can create a walkaround that is unique in the world, even capable of offering its guests a new interpretation of how to experience the sea.
Created as a reinterpretation of the successful Evo R4, the first Evo Yachts’ iconic model from which it takes the clean, racy lines, the new addition in the R line is characterised by innovative technological solutions exclusively designed by designer Valerio Rivellini and made to measure by Besenzoni.
A sporty and gritty 13-metre, Evo R4XT is, like all the brand’s models, highly customisable in both layout and décor.
The heart of this revolution is the beach area, the heart of outdoor life, where a fully customised multifunctional stern platform offers new scenarios and possibilities for exploiting the boat, to which it gives – when extended – an additional metre in length.
This tender lift transformer – never seen before on a 40’ boat – was developed by Besenzoni exclusively for the shipyard, based on a design by Valerio Rivellini. Its excellent mechanical characteristics and movements allow the platform to dip fully underwater, by about 80 centimetres, facilitating entry and ascent from the sea from any point on the stern.
It also extends completely to allow descent, even on high piers, in total safety and comfort. Its exceptional width allows it to be used as a ladder for disembarking even if a tender or jet ski are on the platform, without having to remove them.
Right at the centre of the beach area there is the large island sunbed, followed by a multifunctional ‘sliding’ dining table, which in few seconds can change from a table into a bar counter. The beach area and cockpit are in fact designed so that they can be easily transformed to meet the different needs of guests according to the time of day: from a wide sun lounge to a dining area.
The original driver’s seat also bears Besenzoni’s signature. Below deck, the interiors, precious yet functional, welcome guests with comfortable and surprisingly spacious spaces, also characterised by the transformability typical of Evo Yachts models, with the bow area that in just a few seconds goes from being a large dinette to a cosy sleeping area, adding an additional double bed to the one in the separate cabin. The interiors can be customised in layout, design and accessories at the owner’s request.
The wide range of choices presented to owners, together with the ability of the team of designers and planners to satisfy their every request, reflects Blu Emme Yachts’ will to be recognized in the industry for its production of semi-custom models, rather than a mass production.
Two Volvo Penta IPS 650 engines with 535 HP each push the vessel to a top speed of 34 knots and a range of aprox 300 nautical miles.
