ISA Yacht, a brand of Palumbo Superyachts, has launched its latest creation, ISA GT 45 M/Y Aria SF, a 45-metre sports yacht built on three decks. The naval architecture was handled by Palumbo Superyachts’ technical department, the exterior design was developed by the Palumbo Superyachts Design Team – Enrico Gobbi, while the interior is by Luca Dini Design & Architecture.
On board the ISA GT 45, comfort reigns supreme and the boundaries between exteriors and interiors tend to merge together, making the sea, light and air the protagonists of each space. With its five cabins, two of which are VIP and two doubles with beds that can be joined as required, Aria SF can accommodate up to 10 guests. The full-beam master cabin is located forward on the main deck, which features an entrance/lounge and a private staircase with direct access to the outdoor lounge.
Aria’s owner’s favourite themes, such as waves, sand, rocks, corals, wind and speed, have been abstractly transposed onto the bulkheads behind the textured resin beds and onto the walls of the heads and interior stairways through the use of wallpaper.
The interiors make use of light oak, bleached teak, lacquer, carbon, steel and glass; dark metal details contrast with the rest of the interior, enhancing the brightness of the rooms.
Saloon spaces and cockpits can be doubled by opening the windows, while curtains on all sides provide protection from the sun. From a circular window aft of the upper deck, there is access to the formal dining room for 10 people, which can be arranged around a round table.
An en plein air gymnasium is set up on the fly deck and a telescope is placed in the bow.
ISA GT 45 Aria SF has many elements constructed in carbon fibre by Tecno Tessile Adler, such as the aft hatch that conceals the beach club and the frieze inserted on the hull forward. The pool aft of the main deck lets natural light filter into the beach club below.
A side-opening garage on the starboard side of the lower deck houses a 5-metre tender, while a hangar forward houses the rescue boat and two jey skies, which can be moved by means of a hydraulic crane.
Aria’s crew consists of seven people, arranged in three double cabins and one, reserved for the captain, on the upper deck.
The hull of the ISA GT 45 is built in steel with an aluminium superstructure; power comes from two CAT C32 ACERT, 1300 hp each, capable of delivering a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14.5. ISA GT 45 M/Y Aria SF will be premiered at the forthcoming Cannes and Monaco 2022 boat shows.
