A 141-footer (43-meter) in the early stages of construction at ISA Yachts is hull number one of a new series termed the ISA Alloy 43. She’s also the latest in a revival of activity at the Italian shipyard.
With delivery anticipated in 2019, the ISA Alloy 43 is for an owner who’s enjoyed cruising for a while. In fact, Francesco Carbone, ISA’s general director, says he’s owned “quite a few yachts before this one.”
Just a handful of facts are available about the project. “Alloy” in the model name signifies all-aluminum construction. The ISA Alloy 43 is a semi-displacement design, too. Under MTU power, she should therefore see a 20-knot maximum speed and 18-knot cruising speed. For long-range travel, 12 knots should permit seeing 3,500 nautical miles. Equally noteworthy, the 7’5” (2.3-meter) draft means the owner of the ISA Alloy 43 will be able to access shallow areas.
Styling and interior design for the megayacht are from Luca Dini Design. Ten people get five staterooms, including a main-deck master stateroom. The beam of 26’6” (8.1 meters) should create comfortable relaxation spaces ranging from the traditional saloon and dining area on the main deck down to the beach club. The beach club will be extra spacious, too. The teaser image at top is all that we can show you, at least for now. Regardless, in other news about the megayacht, the owner has requested extra attention to sound and vibration attenuation.
In the meantime, ISA’s management team plans to promote the ISA Alloy 43 to additional buyers. If you’ll be at either this month’s Cannes Yachting Festival or Monaco Yacht Show, you can learn more. You can also step aboard Clorinda, the first new delivery from ISA since its acquisition by the Palumbo Group, parent of Columbus Yachts, last year.
