Palumbo Superyachts has started construction on a new ISA Continental 80 superyacht project that is being built on speculation. ISA Yachts will commence with the construction of the hull and superstructure of their new flagship while outfitting of the custom interior is scheduled to start in summer 2021. Following her launch, the 80-metre ISA Continental will be ready for delivery in mid-2023. ISA Continental 80Photo: ISA YachtsISA Continental 80Photo: ISA Yachts

The project forms part of ISA Yachts' new strategic investment plan and drastically reduces the delivery time that owner looking for a yacht of this size face. Like all models in the ISA Continental range, this 80-metre project is the design work of Enrico Gobbi and his Team for Design studio. The 2300 GT vessel will be built on a steel hull with a sculpted aluminium superstructure that continues the clean horizontal lines from the waterline upwards. ISA Continental 80Photo: ISA YachtsISA Continental 80Photo: ISA Yachts

Fixed balconies on either side of the upper deck with glass inserts help illuminate lounge on this deck with the same concept being applied to the sky lounge one deck above which comes with a gym set up inside. The interior designed by Luca Dini Design & Architecture covers five guest decks from the sundeck down to the lower deck and beach club setup aft. The upper deck with its private features such as a sea view lounge and forward stateroom is designed as an owner’s deck with a touch-and-go helipad on the foredeck at the same level for easy and safe transfers for the principal. There are a total of seven cabins on board that can accommodate up to 12 guests. The ISA Continental 80 will be operated by 19 crew members who live aboard in seven cabins. ISA Continental 80Photo: ISA YachtsISA Continental 80Photo: ISA Yachts

Another highlight is the main deck aft swimming pool with its glass bottom that looks down into the full-beam beach club below. The pool itself is designed with an infinity edge made up of two separate glass panels with water flowing between these for added privacy. ISA Continental 80Photo: ISA YachtsISA Continental 80Photo: ISA Yachts

In terms of performance, the yacht is equipped with two MTU 16V4000M63L engines reaching a 17-knot maximum speed and a 12-knot cruising speed with a range of 6200 nautical miles.ISA Continental 80Photo: ISA YachtsISA Continental 80Photo: ISA Yachts
