3 June 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Turkish shipyard Evadne Yachts has launched the fourth unit in its "pocket explorer" Rock 85 series, known as Rock IV. The 27.3-metre now joins her sisterships on the water, including the first unit Rock which was delivered in 2018. 

The series marks Evadne Yachts' first foray into the motor yacht market, having previously specialised in sailing boats.

Characterised by angular, masculine lines and geometric glazing, the model is designed by Dutch studio Vripack with project management by Tufan and Brothers.

Accommodation is across four cabins, including an en suite owner's cabin located forward on the main deck and complete with a private balcony on the bow. Guest accommodation is located on the lower deck alongside quarters for four crew. The main saloon features sofa seating, a separate dining area and access to an al fresco seating area aft.


Powered by twin CAT engines, the yacht can reach a maximum speed of 15 knots and a range of 3,000 nautical miles at nine knots.

In a world exclusive, Vripack recently spoke to BOAT International about Project Zero – a mission to build a luxurious 69-metre sailing yacht that doesn’t use a drop of fossil fuel.
