ISA Alloy 43 yacht takes shape in Ancona
by Chris Jefferies
Italian yard ISA Yachts has released the first in-build photos of its ISA Alloy 43 yacht, which show that the hull is almost complete. Measuring 43 metres LOA with an 8.1 metre beam, the ISA 43 Alloy is due for completion in early 2019.
Speaking back in September after the project was sold, Francesco Carbone, general manager of ISA Yachts, said: “We are extremely happy to have sold this new yacht to a very passionate and experienced owner who already had quite a few yachts before this one.”
This 330GT yacht will accommodate ten guests split across five cabins, including a main-deck master suite, while the crew quarters will allow for a staff of up to seven people. The styling, both interior and exterior, was contributed by Italian designer Luca Dini.
Comprised of an aluminium hull and superstructure, the ISA Alloy 43 features naval architecture developed by the in-house team. Gianpaolo Lapenna, project and product executive director at ISA Yachts, added: “This semi-displacement superyacht aims to deliver the best possible combination between performance and comfort, with a particular focus on sound and vibration, especially required by the owner from the very beginning."
As these preliminary renderings show, key features include a large superyacht sundeck with separate areas for lounging and dining, while the beach club boasts comfortable armchairs just a few steps from the water.
Power will come from a pair of 2,00hp MTU engines, allowing for comfortable cruising at 18 knots, topping out at 20 knots. When trimmed back to 12 knots a transatlantic range of 3,500 nautical miles will be possible.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include an as-yet-unnamed 50 metre yacht that was sold last month and is due to hit the water in 2020.
