For four days in May, Rolex Capri International Regetta 2016, saw some of the finest yachts sail around the islands in the Gulf of Naples, Italy. With the Evo 43 as the official tender, the competition saw superyachts; Maxi and Minimaxi racing and cruising fleets compete in one of the biggest offshore season events.
Organized by the Italian Yacht Club, Yacht Club Capri and Circolo Canottieri Aniene and in collaboration with Rolex, the regatta marks the opening of the Capri Sailing season. With the irresistible blue ocean, serving as the backdrop, VIP guests were able to closely follow the competitors on board the 13-meter day cruiser by Evo Yachts.
Designed and manufactured by Sea Engineering Group, the tender is the first creation by the Evo Yachts brand. The yacht boasts interior and exterior designs by Valerio Rivellini from Studio Rivellini and is powered by two Volvo IPS 600 engines. As expected from a luxury yacht, the Evo 43 features materials such as teak, glass and leather. Said to be 20% lighter than yachts in its class, the Evo 43 can also reach a maximum speed of 38 knots and has a range of 300 nautical miles.
“Rolex Cup has definitely been one of the most prestigious experiences Evo 43 rewarded us with. We are extremely proud to have been chosen as the official tender, which allowed us to follow closely all the regattas,” said Vito Prato, CEO of Sea Engineering. “With the racing crews, then, we feel like we share the same passion for the sea, speed and challenges, the same passion that has led us to design first, and then built later, the Evo 43,” he added.
