The new Evo R6 Custom promises maximum comfort under way and fun on board
Maxium comfort when under way combined with all the fun that the R series flagship model can offer. A new unit was recently launched of the Evo R6, the 18-meter yacht that epitomises the long-term vision of the Blue Emme Yachts shipyard. Compared to her two sisters, this Evo R6 Custom features new layouts, both externally and internally, and alternative furnishing solutions developed together with the German owner, who envisaged a boat with a more aggressive look, perfect for celebrations and parties.
The exterior layout has been modified to create a wet bar with linear and functional design just behind the stern sundeck. The brushed stainless steel structure and apparently suspended teak counter are seamlessly integrated with the unit containing a refrigerator, a freezer and an ice maker unit.
The large sun lounger is a small masterpiece of design. Technological. covertible and extendable, it encapsulates all the brand’s distinctive characteristics. Guests can use this element to revolutionize the layout of this area in a few seconds: the backrest can be adjusted manually and transformed into seating for the bar, while the sunpad can be extended in width using an electric mechanism to form a C-shaped sofa overlooking the water.
In the cockpit, the kitchen unit is in the same style as the bar and has been redesigned to accommodate a bigger grill. Equally convertible are the new hanging pilot’s seat, the cockpit sofa with a backrest that can be used as an extra seat, and the cockpit table, which has an electric “up and down” mechanism and can be used either for lunch or drinks. The windscreen has two openings at the bottom to allow fresh air to circulate and make the cockpit even more comfortable.
The forward sunpad and sofa have also been revolutionised in this new version of the Evo R6 by adding mobile backrests.
Below deck, the interior design is in a Northern European minimalist style, with clean, simple and squared off lines combined with a palette of pale colours. The owner has chosen a layout with three cabins plus a spacious dinette that can be turned into a fourth cabin. Once again, the Yard and designer Valerio Rivellini have shown their ability to customise the layout of a 58-footer and translate the owner’s needs into a masterpiece of functionality and design.
First presented with two cabins + crew and then revisited in a three-cabin version on the Open model (read about our sea trial) this third version of the Evo R6 offers four guest cabins and three heads.
