ISA Sport 120 superyacht sold by Palumbo Group
by Chris Jefferies
Palumbo Group has sold its first ISA superyacht since the acquisition of the Ancona yard was finalised back in August. The first ISA yacht of the Palumbo era will be the eleventh Sport 120 model. This popular 36.45 metre range already includes Soiree, Sealyon and Canpark.
Giuseppe Palumbo, CEO of the Palumbo Group, said that while the Sport 120 is not a new project, it is still extremely up-to-date. He added: “We are committed to leaving the incomparable Italian style of ISA brand unchanged, maintaining all its winning features.”
A fast-planing GRP yacht, the ISA Sport 120 features a raised pilothouse and a dramatic swooping superstructure. Accommodation for up to 10 guests is split across five cabins, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of five. One of the key areas on board is the stylish superyacht sundeck, which features an outdoor dining area and a circular spa pool.
Palumbo Group has yet to reveal which interior designer it will be working with on the new ISA Sport 120, but the vast majority of the previous models in the series were styled by Cristiano Gatto.
The exact engine installation is unclear, but the range certainly lives up to its name with triple MTU diesel engines allowing for a top speed in excess of 30 knots and a cruising range of around 500 nautical miles. Delivery is expected in early 2018.
