[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hat a return on the stage for ISA Yachts! The Ancona-based shipyard has today announced the sale of a 65 m custom new build motoryacht, with Simon Goldsworthy from the Edmiston office in London introducing the Buyer, an existing and very experienced large yacht owner from Europe. This new 65 meter will be built at the ISA Yachts shipyard in Ancona (Italy) with delivery scheduled in Spring 2021.
The ISA 65 metre platform that the yacht will be built on is a re-styled and substantially modified evolution of two multi-awarded 63 metre superyachts delivered by ISA Yachts in recent years, namely “Mary Jean II” and “Kolaha”.
Enrico Gobbi of Team For Design has designed several ISA models and his studio is now responsible for both the exterior and interior lines of this superb yacht. The yacht features a gross tonnage of over 1,250 GT and has a six stateroom arrangement with a 7th convertible cabin and full beam owner’s suite located forward on the main deck, and a huge full-beam beach club aft with two side opening transom doors.
Giuseppe Palumbo, CEO of ISA Yachts, says:
“We are so glad that another experienced yacht Owner chose ISA to build his dream and we have no doubt that this yacht will turn heads in every marina”.
Simon Goldsworthy says:
“From the very first meeting with the new team at ISA it was obvious that the Palumbo Group’s new ownership of the ISA shipyard had wrought some very positive changes. With their vast experience in ship refit and strong technical bias, we soon had every confidence that they could produce a superb and high quality Superyacht for us, and this combined with their passion for the project and a straightforward negotiating style meant that the deal, while still complex as these new builds always are, was completed in a very pleasant and positive way.”
“This stunning 65 metre motoryacht is the second new build contract signed by ISA Yachts in a month. The market reaction shows that we are on the right track and remain focused to keep the momentum going”
adds Francesco Carbone, General Manager of ISA Yachts.
Technical Director Gianpaolo Lapenna concludes:
“The Owner was deeply involved in the design phase along with his technical team and this yacht is really “his” in every respect. We enjoyed great teamwork with the Buyer’s Broker and his technical support and their input along with the shipyard’s commitment to quality and improving the existing platform – were the keys to finalising the project both technically and design-wise”.
