ISA Yachts Launch 43m "Philmi"

On 29th of March ISA Yachts in Italy launched their first megayacht of the Granturismo range at their facility in Ancona. She's christened "Philmi" and measures 43m (141ft) in length. The Granturismo concept was presented to the yachting community in September 2011 at the Monaco Yacht Show and the contract for the construction of the first 43m GT was signed 6 months later, in March 2012 and is the second sale in the Granturismo range.

Philmi is a 2 decks steel/aluminium displacement megayacht with strong sporty exterior lines and a plumb bow which allows her to make the most of her length. She is powered by 2 CAT engines where she can reach a max speed of 17kts and a cruising speed of 15 kts, with a range of 2,800nm at cruising speed. She can accommodates 10 guests in 5 cabins that include the owners cabin.

Light is a major feature throughout Philmi whose interior design was by Sandrine Melot - the second yacht that Sandrine Melot has undertaken for the same owner. Two large skylights in the main saloon and the owner cabin enhance the interior with bundles of natural light. In the stern area a gym opens onto a large swim platform, while a tender garage hosts the tender.

She will start sea trials next week with a delivery scheduled for June. So if you are in the Ancona area keep a close eye out for her on the water.
