A part of the Palumbo Superyachts, ISA Yachts is a market leader that believes in constructing innovative superyachts and megayachts with superior materials, extraordinary designs and packed with the best of the world amenities since 2001.
Coming up from the ISA Yachts shipyard in Ancona is ISA GT 45 M/Y Aria SF. A 45-meter boasting sharp, sporty exterior lines marked by a plumb bow, featuring the shipyard’s signature side arches connecting the three decks and a fin-shaped hard top giving the yacht a light and slim profile look. ‘A heartfelt thanks to the owner who actively participated in the construction of this new model, enhancing it with innovation and technology. The launch of ISA GT 45 emphasizes an extremely active time of our company. The Ancona shipyard is operating at full capacity with all its slots booked, which is why we have diverted to our Savona production site the construction of two other self-financed boats’, said Giuseppe Palumbo, Sole Director of Palumbo Superyachts.
With Aria SF, sea, light and air are crucial points. The megayacht’s naval architecture is developed by Palumbo Superyachts and features Team for Design – Enrico Gobbi’s exterior design. The vessels see numerous references to cars, speed and primary colors in technical, functional and minimal elements of any space on board. The design brings the finest connection between the indoors and outdoors.
The interiors of this enormous structure are done by Luca Dini Design & Architecture. With pristine white leather and mirrors and complimenting soft carpet effect made out of mixing wooden strips treated with different processes, create a neutral harmony. Contrasting this background are splodges of blue and red that add a distinctly automotive soul to the interiors. These details are custom-made by Tramontano in carbon, rosewood and hide/saddle-stitched leather that runs throughout the boat. The true artworks, however, are the bulkheads behind the beds. Given the owner’s love for all things cars, these bulkheads are made of material-effect resin on a sketch customized for the boat using themes like waves, sand, rocks, corals, wind, and speed.
Talking about its capacity, the M/Y Aria SF can easily accommodate up to ten people in its five comfortable cabins. Situated below the deck are two VIP and two double cabins that can be easily converted into a double. The yacht can have a seven-member crew accommodated in 3 double cabins below deck. The owner’s suite is situated on the main deck forward, which has an entrance/ lounge with a sofa and TV. The suite also features a walk-in closet and an elaborate bathroom and has direct access to the outdoor lounge via a private staircase. The interiors of the yachts are sprinkled with artworks with abstract references according to the owner’s preference.
The use of very light oak, lacquered surfaces, bleached teak, carbon, glass and steel gives the yacht a unique character that balances the contrast and draws in brightness. The main living room features a crystal structure from the Crystal Lounge line by Glas Italia, complemented by the Freeman Duvet by Minotti – a decadent addition to the space. With curtains that don’t block your way and solar shading to ensure comfort, Aria SF is a true paradise.
The fly deck holds a fully equipped open-air gym for working out while enjoying breathtaking views. This isn’t all; the yacht has a 5-meter tender stored in the lower deck garage with a starboard opening. A hydraulic crane handles two two jet skis in the bow hangar. The mega yacht also has a rescue boat in the bow. To enjoy the nights, an indispensable telescope is mounted in the bow.
At its heart, Aria SF is powered by two CAT C32 ACERT engines with 1300 hp each. The yacht can comfortably cruise at a speed of 14.5 knots and reaches a maximum speed of 16 knots. Making its world premiere at the upcoming Cannes and Monaco 2022 boat shows, we are sure it will gather much-deserved attention!
