EVO 660: Advance Hull & Electric Targa

EVO 660: Advance Hull & Electric Targa

Your whole family can enjoy water sports, such as water skiing, fishing, diving or simply mucking about on the water, in a new EVO 660 power boat. Designed by New Zealand yacht designer, Greg Elliott, who has 40 years experience in boat building. The EVO 660 has been in production for more than five years and has been praised for its dynamics and efficiency.

The EVO 660 is constructed in fibreglass, and is a relatively lightweight powerboat that will rise onto the plane at very low speed. The well thought out design responds to the demand in the recreational powerboat market with a boat that is seaworthy while keeping fuel consumption to a minimum. The boat is covered by the manufacturer five-year structural warranty.

The hull features include efficient low drag hull form, providing outstanding soft ride quality with no slamming. The EVO 660 features topside flare to reduce spray and has a self-draining deck. Strategically placed strakes provide lift, reduce surface friction, and provide dynamic stability.

The EVO 660 has three design options: open, fixed top, or the unique electric targa top. The optional electric targa top is adjustable from the helm at the press of a button. In a matter of seconds, you can set at any height that suits, or set flush with the top of the windshield. Completely lowered, the electric targa top encloses the helm for easy storage and reduces the wind drag during towing.

The central console cockpit arrangement provides comfort and shelter, allowing full use of the boat and total visibility without closing in the space. The design allows for easy reach of the throttle in a comfortable seated or standing drivers position. A wide dash features flush-mounted engine instruments, a glove box, a VHF radio, and plenty of space for your navigation and fish finders. The upholstered helm seat accommodates two adults, and has generous storage under the seat and below the console. All models are fitted with an electric anchor winch.

The bow has a large aft-facing passenger bench seat over the anchor locker and a handrail running along a good length of the boat.

The open transom will suit game fishermen making it easy to haul in large fish into the cockpit. The boat design is not just about fishing; it easily operates as the family water sports boat. A large storage locker is easy to access, and the floor can be covered in non-skid cork or a covering of your choice.

With a LOA of 6.6 metres, a beam of 2 metres and displacement of 1150 kilograms, the EVO 660 can be powered by a 100-150HP outboard. When running a 16” propeller the boat will travel at a maximum speed of 32 knots.

A very adaptable boat, starting from $64,500, the EVO 660 is an attractive and unique all-round vessel.
