Last week the Italian shipyard ISA Yachts announced they had signed three new contracts between mid-2011 and early 2011. The first two superyachts, the ISA 41m Classic and the 66m Granturismo, were signed in 2011, whilst the 54 metre project Panorama was signed in early 2012 with Fernando Nicholson of Camper & Nicholsons International introducing the buyer.
ISA 41m Classic
The smallest of the three new orders is the ISA 41m Classic, which has been developed from the 39m platform, which the company introduced in the Summer of 2009. Designed by Andrea Vallicelli, the motor yacht was ordered by a repeat client of ISA Yachts and is slated for delivery in the Summer of 2013.
The steel/aluminium displacement superyacht will be powered by twin Caterpillar C18 diesel engines, which provide a max speed of 14 knots. The ISA 41m Classic will have 1 master and 4 guest cabins to accommodate 10 guests.
ISA 66m Granturismo
The largest of the three new orders is the ISA 66m Granturismo (GT). Designed by Andrea Vallicelli, the full displacement motor yacht is developed from the shipyards 65m GT platform. The steel/aluminium superyacht is powered by twin Caterpillar engines which propel the yacht up to a top speed of 18 knots and cruising speed of 16 knots.
Accommodation is provided for 12 guests in 1 master suite and 5 guest staterooms. The ISA 66 GT will be delivered in the early Summer of 2014.
ISA 54m Project Panorama
Project Panorama is a fully custom motor yacht designed by Horacio Bozzo with interior design by Studio Massari. The 54 metre superyacht has an unusual lay-out with a formal dining area and a saloon forward on the main deck. Thanks to large hull windows the rooms are filled with natural light. Aft on the main deck is another saloon with full height doors that open into exterior foldable bulwarks for unobstructed views over the ocean.
There are plenty of relaxation options on-board Project Panorama as well, with a large pool, large dining table, bar and sunpads on the sundeck and a spacious beach club with foldable stern and side platforms.
All decks, including the sundeck, will be connected by a glass elevator. The main garage, which houses a 8.3 metre Riva Iseo tender and a 5.5 metre crew tender, is situated forward on the main deck. Project Panorama will cruise at 14.5 knots and she will have a trans-pacific range. Delivery of the 54 metre superyacht is scheduled for the Summer of 2014.
