Velar 78 goes beyond the expected.
Evo Yachts and Valerio Rivellini are back at work together after creating high profile models like the multiple award-winning Evo R4 and Evo R6, or the Evo T2 tender.
Velar 78 is a 24-meter motor yacht with a refined, minimalist design created for a leisurely and relaxed lifestyle at sea. It is a yacht that defies classification, combining the strengths of both motor yachts and sailboats. It is a boat for owners who want to experience the thrill of travel in a new but yet traditional way, mindful of reduced consumption and eco-sustainability.
The Velar 78 is based on a concept launched on the market a few months ago by Valerio Rivellini, which Evo Yachts has made its own and transformed into a new model in the brand’s range. The first unit is under construction and will be launched in spring 2021.
With the Velar 78 yacht, on which construction work recently began and will be completed in early 2021, Evo Yachts adds a new series, the Velar line, to expand the existing range: the R-Line, with the R4, R4WA and R6 models, and the T-line with the T2 and, coming soon, the T3 model.
The big yacht wheel gives the owner the sensation of captaining a sailboat, while the helm station in the deckhouse offers a protected alternative out of the elements, equipped with a joystick drive that is perfect for complicated manoeuvres or in rough seas and replaces the wheel, like on an aircraft. The glazed surfaces in the deckhouse are designed to disappear completely out of view, turning the boat into a pure open with T-top.
“After the success of our R4 and R6 models, we had for some time been looking at extending the range and adding a new series of yachts that lived up to our reputation for innovation. When we saw the Velar concept by Valerio Rivellini, our go-to designer for many years, we realized it was exactly what we were looking for. Velar is original, intelligent and cross-market, but it is also a boat that can be built using consolidated processes. We immediately reached an understanding with Valerio and the result is the Velar 78, the first model in a new series,” said the Mercuri brothers, the owners of Blu Emme Yachts and through it the Evo Yachts brand.
