ISA Yachts presents new 50m Gran Turismo model

23 August 2023 • Written by Katia Damborsky

ISA Yachts, a brand of Palumbo Superyachts, has lifted the lid on a newly restyled 50-metre edition of its Gran Turismo range, shortly after revealing a flagship 70-metre edition in May of this year. 

The 50-metre is the latest model to benefit from ISA's overhauling of its Gran Turismo line, which aims to maintain the line's signature sporty character while modernising the yacht's profile and adding a number of new features.

The contemporary new look comes courtesy of Enrico Gobbi – Team for Design and centres around a streamlined profile, straight bow and raked-back superstructure. The coupé-style yacht will sit under 499GT and bring in elements of jet design, a signature of the Venice-based studio.

The yard has envisioned a more "slender" profile for the new Gran Turismo range, achieved by high side arches and roll bars that run towards the stern of the hull and taper in.

One of the highlights of the new Gran Turismo model is the open stern, which spans across three decks and comprises a large lounge with unobstructed views and a swim platform with direct access to the sea. In the middle is a glass-rimmed swimming pool. Elsewhere, there is a Jacuzzi on the sundeck aft and a firepit located on the bow.

Enrico Gobbi's studio has used a mix of fluted wood, thin metal inserts, soft and indirect lights and metal and dark brass frames to achieve the yacht's "fresh" interior. A black and gold colour palette has been envisioned throughout her social and private areas.

Accommodation comprises a main deck owner's suite complete with a massage room and private gym, with the option of replacing the gym area with an additional guest cabin. The entire area is flooded with light thanks to large windows, and a French door with a terrace is at the exclusive use of the owner.

On the deck below there are four double en suite cabins, with the tender garage located on the aft and further accommodation for a crew of 11, split between seven cabins. The yacht has been envisioned with a maximum speed of 20 knots and cruising speed of 15 knots.

According to BOATPro, ISA has two yachts over 60 metres under construction, including the 66-metre Sportiva.
