LUXURY AND VERSATILITY
Evolution was designed to be an ocean going family beach house. The goal was to combine a relaxed, comfortable interior and generous recreation areas, with easy access to the water. The boat was designed to support a very casual outdoor lifestyle. Originally conceived as a private family yacht with three very generous suites, alternative layouts are available which may be more suited to a yacht that might be undertaking some charter activity.
The most luxurious version of this new offering allows for a full deck owner's suite (above) with a private hot tub and master stateroom aft, and either a private lounge with mini galley or second stateroom forward. The forward layouts are easily interchangeable at any time during the life of the vessel.
Among the most desirable features of this latest concept from CHY Design, is the large aft sun deck that also functions as tender storage and touch and go heli-pad. Steps below is a water level deck creating an excellent staging area for diving and other water sports, as well as boarding. The wide aft staircase between these decks provides a dramatic entrance.
The upper deck features a hot tub, a generous covered lounge with grilling area, and "E-stations", that permit, internet access, and inter-active gaming as well as TV and private movie viewing under the stars. A unique feature of this deck is the solar activated awning style side windows, which act as sun visors when opened.
Guest accommodations are also designed to be easily modified to suit a variety of purposes over time, from charter use to private family yacht. During construction allowances will be made to permit the owners to easily modify the boat to alternate configurations efficiently and economically as personal needs dictate, during their term of ownership. This system also increases marketability if the boat is ever sold. It can be easily be converted to the preferred configuration of a next owner. Layouts available for owner and guests range from master suite and two large VIP suites, up to 5 or 6 stateroom layouts that may be found on a yacht typically used for charter.
There are accommodations for up to 12 crew members. The Captain’s cabin is suitable for a couple, and the first officer or chef, and the engineer, have private cabins. 8 crew members share 4 cabins, each with its own head. The boat could be operated safely and efficiently with as few as 8 crew, depending on the type of usage, leading to even more generous crew accommodations. There are also layouts available that provide a main deck cabin for a family staff member who may not be part of the yacht's permanent crew.
Evolution may be the most versatile 50 meter design available. She can be easily and economically converted from a six stateroom charter yacht to a private family yacht with much more generous accommodations with minimum expense, compared to a normal major overhaul. This may be the perfect boat for owners who want a unique new charter boat now, but may not want to go through the entire design and build process all over again, when it's time to upgrade to a private yacht with more generous accommodations.
