The latest work of interior designer Luca Dini has been revealed in new images of the ISA Alloy superyacht Agora III. The new 43-metre vessel, which is set to be the largest private yacht in Japan, features an aluminium hull and superstructure with streamlined lines to enhance the sporty yet elegant exterior.

The stylistic elements inspired by automotive design are also evident in the gull-wing doors either side of the wheelhouse, skylights in the owner’s suite, prominent ventilation grills and side slits.

Access to a private dressing room and office are connected by an owner’s foyer that enhances the use of flowing lines throughout the superyacht’s interior. The remaining guests are housed on the lower-deck, where two large VIP cabins are located aft adjacent to two large single cabins with Pullman beds.

The large full-width aft window opens onto the large private cockpit that is furnished for dining, relaxing and sunbathing.
