Project: ISA Yachts 76 Extra

ISA Yachts debuts its new line designed by Francesco Guida with Extra 76, a 23 meters explorer yacht that develops a new concept, giving guests the chance to live in close contact with the nature, creating a direct feeling with the sea both in navigation and at anchor, using all the comfort given by the large outside and inside volumes.  Extra is a yacht with features that are significantly quite different from the other ISA models. Unusual lines, smaller dimensions, and an innovative concept of use.  The exterior look of Extra 76 expresses a distinctive character and a unique personality: a play of contrasts between light-colored fiberglass and dark glazing recalls the lines of  traditional Italian yachts. Looking at the winding, charming shape reveals the impressive, full-height volume that extends almost to the bow. The large vertical and horizontal glazed surfaces are combined like part of a crystal sphere, and offer plenty of natural light and unprecedented space for a yacht 23 meters long.  The open air life is guaranteed by generous outdoor spaces, the aft deck cockpit delivers unusual volumes, with a central section furnished with big sofas, a table, and a maxi sun lounging pad aft, and then to stern the swim platform. The fly deck appearing invisible from the outside offers a second helm station, a C-shaped sofa and a huge sun lounging pad.

Project: Fairline 64 Squadron

Fairline present the project for a new Squadron 64, the latest model designed for the British boat builder by celebrated designer Alberto Mancini. The hugely successful partnership between the Italian designer and British boatyard, which began with the Targa 63 GTO, and has created an instantly recognizable sleek hull shape with effortless styling and large interior spaces that flow seamlessly.  The Squadron 64 is third design for Fairline by Mancini following the 43 Targa Open presented at the start of 2017.  Taking inspiration from Mancini’s Targa 63 GTO, the Squadron 64 will be built on the same Vripack wide chine hull and will hold the same innovative, versatile, light, bright and achingly stylish feel of the Targa 63 GTO. The luxurious social cruiser will add another dimension to Fairline’s established Squadron range, designed in line with the brand’s ethos that nothing should get in the way of the perfect getaway.  As is tradition with the Fairlines the Squadron 64 offers various owner options for deck configurations; three layout choices for the flybridge, and two options for the lower deck with three or four cabin accommodations plans.  In both lower deck layouts a twin crew cabin is located aft.  Power choices have not been announced for the 64 Squadron but expect something on the lines of the just launched 63 Targa GTO on which the hull of this model is based on.
