“One of the sleekest aluminum superyachts released in recent years, Tecnomar’s Evo 120 has proven a popular model in Asia and the newly launched Lucy is available through Camper & Nicholsons“–Paul Ebeling
The 63-footer is a new addition to a portfolio that also includes the Evo 55, a 40-knot model with Volvo IPS engines that has come to Asia. However, the Tecnomar model that has recently made the most impact in this region is the Evo 120, with hull #1 touring multiple countries in Asia, including Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.
In fact, two units of the Evo 120 are in Asia, while Lucy was recently launched in Marina di Carrara, where Tecnomar is an anchor brand of The Italian Sea Group along with Admiral, while Perini Navi is a new addition to the TISG family.
Carmen Lau, a Senior Advisor for the historic brokerage house that’s celebrating its 240th anniversary this year, says the Evo 120 makes an impression wherever she goes.
“People always notice her futuristic exterior,” says Ms. Lau, one of Asia’s most successful superyacht brokers. “The Evo 120 is very popular in Asia because of the aggressive exterior as well as the many indoor and outdoor areas for entertaining guests.”
The Evo 120 is also distinguished by the fact its hull is made of aluminum, which is lighter than steel and stiffer, stronger and lighter than fibreglass, yet not often used on a 37m flybridge motor yacht and typically used for low production numbers. Lau believes the aluminum hull, which contributes to a shallow draft of just over 4ft, is among the model’s strongest assets.
“It’s rare to find a 120-footer with an aluminum hull. The biggest advantage of an aluminum hull is the weight and longevity. It’s about 30 per cent lighter than a fiberglass boat of a similar size, so this results in better performance and improves the fuel efficiency,” she says.
“Lucy is very suitable for an owner looking for a yacht with good entertainment areas, such as a separate dining area, a full massage and sauna room, a well-equipped sun deck with jacuzzi, and aft cockpit with a bar,” says Ms. Lau, who says the yacht is likely to spend at least the Summer in the Mediterranean.
“Soon after she was listed, I received a lot of enquiries from the US and Europe. There’s only a handful of new yachts available in the market now, so Lucy is one of the few that allows a client to enjoy their yacht this Summer.”
Have a prosperous day, Keep the Faith!
