ISA YACHTS Sport 120 Clorinda
Isa Yachts has returned to Cannes and Monaco Yacht Shows. The renowned Ancona based shipyard has gone back to do what it does best: building splendid yachts following Gruppo Palumbo’s take over.
Isa Yachts which stands for International shipyard Ancona was founded 2001 in one of Italy’s most prolific regions dedicated to building superyachts. Isa Yachts has built some of Italy’s most representative yachts. Thirty two of them sport an LOA which ranges from 37 to 66 metres in 2014 with M/Y “OKTO”. Unfortunately, despite the success obtained at the main international events dedicated to this yachting segment, the recession which lasted longer than foreseen forced the yard to stop building, but recently thanks to Gruppo Palumbo’s acquisition which has been converting, repairing and refitting yachts since 1967 with shipyards in Naples, Sicily, Malta, Marseilles and Tenerife and now also in Ancona, has returned to produce the “Oldy” range of superbly restyled superyachts sporting new lines drawn up by well established design and naval architects’ studios of international renown. The first model at the top of the new order book to hit the water was M/Y “Clorinda” from the lucky Isa Sport 120 line which is the eleventh launched to date with an LOA of 37 metres. In much the same way as preceding sister ships,“clorinda” stands out of the chorus line for some of its features like a lovely stairway situated aft in the stern area with which the Ancona based yard initialled its work and extending this to almost the entire fleet. But not only, since new stylistic elements like lateral black tinted glass panelling, a bow sun bathing area and a skylight which can filter incoming light at the touch of a button situated next to the owner’s suite are all truly embellishing.
Small new external embellishments aside, the yacht maintains the stylistic concept first introduced in 2005 with M/Y “Happy Hour” which features curvy slender lines and compacted volume which confer an elegantly sporty aspect to the whole. Dedicated research in a quest for appealing aesthetics coupled to graceful harmony between interior and external spaces designed to enhance contact with contouring natural elements, without neglecting on board comfort. An example of what’s been said is well represented by the way the main deck has been devised to greet visiting guests as it reveals a dining area contoured by six large fully opening window like ports to maintain contact with nature. Proceeding forward we come to an elegant living area which reveals diverse light colour-
ed fabric in the bright upholstery and some of the furniture.the same colouring decorates the interiors of the owner’s quarters which extend further forward along the same deck spreading over two levels so as to offer the same headroom to the night zone and bathrooms without encroaching on the exterior design in any way. The guest quarters are made up of two VIP suites and two twin cabins, all four have dedicated bathrooms.the crew’s quarters are accessed through a separate entrance in another area.the helm controls station which is situated along the half deck above the main one, contains latest generation equipment and touch screen display panels.three MTU 16V 2000 M96 engines developing 2,400 hp each are linked to a pair of hydro-jets and to a Rolls-royce Kamewa booster which push this 37 metre to a declared top speed of 34 knots. The sundeck thanks to the highly comfortable lounge spots is surely one of the most sought after spaces on board of “Clorinda” where guests can party, chat, sunbathe thanks to large sun pads or maybe take a dip into an inviting Jacuzzi tub. Among the novelties installed on “Clorinda” there’s an efficient electric stabiliser plant an ABT-TRAC which clearly improves on board comfort while cruising and when lying to an anchor. And Videoworks multimedia and domotic systems like Lutron which handle curtains and lights integrate Apple TV, Cisco Network and Kaleidoscope Strato with media player ultra HD with HDR with a maximum resolution of 600 photogram./second.
