blu martin yachts and marine design studio tecnico rivelini presents their latest robust and modular boat – the ‘evo 43’. lightweight and easy to steer, it’s 13 meters long hull is shaped to be remarkably fast, reaching speeds of up to 68 km/h from two 320kW volvo engines. using infusion structural techniques to avoid defects and extensive nautical design software to perform an array of simulations, the engineers managed to save 20% of the weight needed for the ‘evo 43’.
