ISA launches PAPI DU PAPI
On Saturday, July 23rd ISA - International Shipyards Ancona launched the 50m (164ft) motor yacht Papi Du Papi, the second in a series of three new 50m yachts currently under construction at the Italian shipyard. The three yachts in the 50m series share the same technical platform but differ in their superstructure and transom design.
Architect Andrea Vallicelli, in collaboration with ISA's in-house naval architects, designed Papi Du Papi to be a sophisticated displacement yacht. Huge volumes, great performance and low consumption are the main features of this excellent platform. A tri-deck displacement motor yacht with steel hull and aluminium superstructure which combines the new dynamic, streamlined and elegant outline of ISA 50 metre project with the transom stairways of the successful ISA 47 metre series. The result is a modern, sporty yacht with an elegant stern which in addition to the familiar stairways is enriched by a versatile beach area accessed from the swim platform by two wide curved glass doors. The interior design of this project is signed by Francesco Paszkowski, this being his first project with ISA. The yacht is powered by two 2 x CAT 3512C with a max power of 1230 kW @ 1800 rpm. She can reach 16 knots at maximum speed. A pair of NAIAD stabilizers guarantees a smooth navigation in the most severe conditions and a comfortable stay at anchor.
Papi Du Papi is scheduled for delivery in September 2011 and will be officially presented at the coming edition of the MONACO YACHT SHOW.
