Evo Yachts said it will display its new Evo 43 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show next week.

Evo signed a partnership at the recent Cannes Yachting Festival with GMarine, the Italian builder’s new dealer for Florida, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Evo said the first 43 was built for the U.S. market. The 43-foot yacht has a barbecue and ‘tropical’ air conditioning.

To mark the debut, Evo and GMarine will launch an Evo 43 app that allows users to climb onboard the new 43 for a virtual tour. By taking a photograph of the boat with a smartphone or tablet, users can create a 3D version of the model that they can explore in detail and customize.

During the show, Evo and GMarine will offer their followers a backstage view of the Evo 43’s debut in the United States through a Facebook livestream that will start on Nov. 4 at 1 p.m.

“We’re happy with this new adventure and the opportunity it gives us to present Evo on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean and launch it on one of the world’s most important markets,” Evo Yachts’ Alfredo and Rosario Mercuri said in a statement.
