New Model: ISA Yachts 49.95 m

On Saturday, March 19 International Shipyards Ancona launched the 50m motor yacht Liberty, the first in a series of three new fifty meters currently under construction at the Italian yard. 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 Liberty to be a sophisticated displacement yacht. Huge volumes, great performance and low consumption are the main features of this excellent platform. Liberty's elegant exterior lines are magnified by the contrast between her metallic dark grey hull and the white superstructure.  Twelve guests are accommodated between a master suite on the main deck, four guest cabins on the lower deck and a VIP cabin on the upper deck. The yacht accommodates 10 crew.  The yacht is powered by two MTU with a max power of 2479hp. She can reach 16.8 knot at maximum speed. A pair of Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers guarantees a smooth navigation in the most severe conditions and a comfortable stay at anchor.  Liberty is scheduled for delivery in May 2011.
