On Saturday, March 19, ISA (International Shipyards Ancona) launched the 50 metre (164ft) superyacht Liberty, the first in a series of three new 50 metre yachts currently under construction at the Italian yard. The three yachts in the 50 metre series share the same technical platform but differ in their superstructure and transom design.
Architect Andrea Vallicelli, in collaboration with ISA's in-house naval architects, designed Liberty to be a sophisticated displacement yacht. Huge volumes, great performance and low consumption are the main features of this excellent platform. Liberty's elegant exterior lines are magnified by the contrast between her metallic dark grey hull and the white superstructure.
The interior design is by Stefania Biondo dalla Casapiccola, BDC Interior Design & Décor. Twelve guests are accommodated between a master suite on the main deck, four guest cabins on the lower deck and a VIP cabin on the upper deck. The yacht accommodates 10 crew.
The yacht is powered by two MTU 12V4000 with a max power of 1,850kW at 2,000rpm. She can reach 16.8 knots at maximum speed. A pair of Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers guarantees a smooth navigation in the most severe conditions and a comfortable stay at anchor.
Liberty is scheduled for delivery in May 2011.
