First 50 knot ISA Super Sportivo 100 GTO launched

7 May 2021By Miranda Blazeby

The first 30.5 metre ISA Super Sportivo 100 GTO superyacht has hit the water for the first time in Italy. 

The latest model from ISA Yachts, part of the Palumbo Superyachts group, was launched from Palumbo's Ancona based shipyard and is set to debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival later this year. 

Sold to a European customer, the 30.5 metre vessel was designed by Marco Casali of Too Design.

The ISA Super Sportivo 100ft GTO will be launched in 2020.

The Super Sportivo will be a contender for one of the fastest models on the market; powered with three MAN 2000 HP engines, it will reach maximum speeds of up to 50 knots. The hull and superstructure, built with epoxy based vinylester resin with carbon fiber and Kevlar reinforcements, will combine optimum lightness and strength to aid performance. Buyers will be able to choose between completely customisable models ranging from three to five guest cabins.

Designer Marco Casali said: "ISA Super Sportivo 100ft GTO stems from the idea of creating a boat that would exalt the values of sportiness and seaworthiness typical of an open boat.

“The sleek lines are highlighted by the tall V-shaped bow and by the profile rapidly declining towards the stern. The sizeable open surfaces at the bow and stern make it unique in its category, while the hard top large opening glass panels ensure maximum comfort even in the cockpit extensive covered areas. The performance of the boat is stylistically enhanced by the large air intakes with a dynamic function for those positioned above the hard top."
