ISA reveals 161.5m of new superyacht orders
by Raphael Montigneaux
Following on from this morning's breaking news on boatinternational.com of a new 54.5 metre superyacht order at ISA, the yard has provided us with more details about two other recent orders.
The largest of the three orders is a 66 metre motor yacht from the new Granturismo series, unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show. Designed by Andrea Vallicelli, this series is notable for its spacious exterior areas. Built in aluminum, the ISA 66 GT is stable and fast, and her hull design, characterised by a vertical bow, offers low fuel consumption. Twin Caterpillar engines give a top speed of 18 knots, a cruising speed of 16 knots and a transatlantic range. Her interior layout accommodates 12 guests in a master and five double cabins. When delivered in summer 2014, the ISA 66 GT will be the new flagship of the Italian yard.
Second in size is the 54.5 metre steel and aluminium displacement motor yacht designed by Horacio Bozzo with an interior by Studio Massari. More details about the yacht, called Panorama, were disclosed in our earlier report. Her delivery is also scheduled for summer 2014.
The third order, for a repeat client, is similar to the recently delivered yacht Liberty, albeit shorter. With a length of 41 metres, this steel and aluminium tri-deck displacement motor yacht was also designed by Andrea Vallicelli, giving her the same elegant appearance as her big sister. The interior, styled by in-house designers, will accommodate 10 guests in a master suite and four double guest cabins. Twin Caterpillar C-18 engines are expected to deliver a top speed of 14 knots. The ISA 41M Classic is scheduled for delivery on summer 2013.
