ISA Super Sportivo 100ft GTO M/Y Aldabra: a 55 knot silver arrow

ISA Super Sportivo 100ft GTO is the new silver colour arrow with a sporty design featuring a carbon fibre infused hull combined with a lightweight carbon superstructure.

Performance is certainly the main ingredient thanks to her three 2,000 hp MAN engines and hydrojet propulsion which, during the first sea trials, allowed to reach a maximum speed of 55 knots. Therefore, this model becomes fully part of the worldwide fastest boats currently on the market in this category.

A legend that began a few years ago when Giuseppe Palumbo entrusted Arch. Casali the development of the new ISA Super Sportivo line. A market niche for super speed enthusiasts that introduces in the history of ISA the use of hydrojet propulsion on one of the shipyard’s best seller: ISA 120ft Sport (included the latest ISA 140ft Sport M/Y Silver Wind).

The Owner of Aldabra immediately loved the 100-foot line and believed in the project. A top-level technical team led by Engineer Arnaboldi and specialized in performance boats worked side-by-side to develop the water lines and aerodynamics. ISA SS 100ft GTO took shape at the Palumbo Superyachts shipyard, Ancona; Marco Casali (Too Design) looked after both the exterior and the interior, liaising with the carbon fibre specialized staff of the site technical office. Once again, ISA Yachts confirms itself as an innovative and dynamic brand capable of facing increasingly exciting challenges.

The sleek lines are emphasized by the high deep-V shaped bow and by the profile that drops rapidly down to the stern. The deckhouse has a pronounced sheer line that perfectly matches the large double-curved front windows of 5 sqm each, divided by the gull-wing door to access the cockpit.

The boat performance is stylistically amplified by the big air intakes playing a dynamic role when positioned above the hard top.

Astern and forward the sizeable open surfaces make it a unique product in its category, while the large opening glass panels of the hard top still ensure maximum comfort even in the covered areas of the cockpit.

The great attention to the weight of this ISA Super Sportivo 100ft GTO has led to the installation of innovative solutions in addition to lighter furniture, flooring and ceiling. Indeed, the deck flooring is in PE/ EVA, a closed cell marine grade foam which, in addition to being light, is also very soft to the touch, easy to maintain, does not heat up under summer high temperatures and guarantees unmatched soundproofing.

On the starboard and port side of the cockpit we find two electric lift carbon tables serving as coffee or dining tables or as a large relaxation surface when covered with their cushions. Four Frau Donald armchairs, leather upholstered, complete the area.

The Furuno dashboard is central, ergonomic and it perfectly integrates with the cockpit design.

The interior, available in several options from 3 to 5 guest cabins in addition to the two crew cabins accommodating 4 people with separate access from the cockpit, are totally customizable and characterized by a design aimed to maximise light and confer an iconic architecture on spaces.

M/Y Aldabra has 5 double cabins with private bathrooms. The full-beam owner cabin is located amidships and has a double bathroom with a central pass-through shower.

The cockpit and lower deck finishes are in leather, carbon and steel to enhance the modern, clean and essential style of the whole project. Great attention has been paid to the light design using integrated LED strips to highlight specific details.

The 4-metre tender is housed in the aft garage and can be hauled/ launched through a tender slide system with a winch. ISA Super Sportivo 100ft GTO is also equipped with a transformer and a Seakeeper 35 for maximum comfort on board.

M/Y Aldabra will be premiered during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021.

The ISA Super Sportivo line also includes the larger 121ft and 141ft models.
