At Cannes, Evo Yachts launches the new R6 open between sea and sky

Evo Yachts looks ahead to the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival 2020 and gears up for the official launch of the yard’s new project: Evo R6 Open, a lounge suspended between the sea and the sky. A pure 58-foot open, the new yacht offers an authentic cruising experience that embraces the natural environment, without neglecting on onboard comfort. 

August 2020. Blu Emme Yachts-owned brand Evo Yachts presents the world premiere of Evo R6 Open at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2020.
Signed by designer Valerio Rivellini, the new 18-meter motor yacht is the open version of Evo R6, the successful R_Line  flagship launched last year, also at Cannes, from which it inherits the elegant design and flexible spaces.

Compared with the classic version, the new R6 Open features a steel roll-bar in place of the t-top, consisting of a suspended wing that connects the two uprights. The resulting design has sporty, flowing lines that perfectly convey a feeling of lightness. And this focus on lightness is also clear to see in the details, like the decision not to place the antennas on the wing itself, but in a rais ed position above it, so that they become an integral part of the structural design. 

A retractable bimini provides shade for the pilot seat and the forward section of the cockpit, which is fitted out with a big dining area and illuminated at night by courtesy lights on the roll-bar, in an evocative play of light. This outdoor area is joined by three more: from the spacious forward sunbathing area with facing bow seating, to the sunpad island in the beach lounge, and finally the modular swim platform in the stern, with its multiple uses.

Like all the models in the Evo Yachts range, the beach lounge area is the stand out feature on the boat, not least because of the yard’s signature “XTension” bulwarks system, which opens out sideways in a matter of seconds to increase the available space by 40%. The central sunpad is spacious enough to house a 2.85-meter tender beneath it.

The layout of Evo R6 Open is an invitation to socialise and relax in an immersive experience, at one with the natural environment. Despite being a pure open, the below deck area offers every comfort and plenty of headroom, with a layout that features a dinette, the owner’s cabin, two doubles for guests in the stern, and two bathrooms.

With two possible engine configurations, a pair of Volvo Penta IPS 800s or 950s, Evo R6 Open has a top speed of 35 knots and a range of 280 miles.
