ISA Yachts has unveiled the 70-metre Gran Turismo, the newest generation of the shipyard’s traditional line and one that has contributed to its international success.
The first model to take shape at the expert hands of Team for Design‘s Enrico Gobbi, the ISA Gran Turismo 70 is a yacht with a sporty and sensual appeal. With a streamlined coupé-like profile and sinuous lines, the Gran Turismo 70m revolutionises the concept of exterior-meets-interior design to create a unique and sophisticated leitmotif.
The refined contrast of the hull colour, in steel grey and charcoal details, with the minimal windows emphasises the sleek flowing design and accentuates it longitudinally. The charcoal-colour skylounge, where the wheelhouse is placed, is set back so as not to interfere with the slender lines and to let the characteristic ISA arch connecting all the decks take centre stage.
As for the exterior layout, versatility is the name of the game, as is demonstrated in the area forward of the owner’s cabin, which can be both private and open to guests. This area includes an infinity pool connected to the owner’s cabin through a lit path for a great visual effect, while a touch-and-go platform can also be provided. The owner’s cabin itself is a true glasshouse, where the very slim frames of the large opening floor-to-ceiling windows are virtually invisible, amplifying the feeling of continuity between inside and outside.
The outdoor furnishings are organic and characterised by very modern round and curved shapes combined with warm colour wood for a glamorous high-quality elegance. At the stern end of the upper deck, a sense of continuity between the round dining room, with opening windows at 180 degrees, and the external cockpit is achieved through the use of the same type of wood.
The same philosophy is applied to the interior, where an attractive teak and wenge wood selection is used for both the flooring and the ceiling cladding. Dove grey and taupe with traces of contemporary blue are artfully mixed in a pallet of warm colours while marble and satin brass details give the room an even more exclusive allure.
The owner’s cabin strays from the path, using a combination of sandblasted teak-colour walnut wood and very light-colour leather to produce a truly unique effect.
Both the ceiling and floor lighting play a special role as they are also designed to lead the gaze to infinity transcending any indoor-outdoor barriers.
The spacious SPA area, a true convivial club, is connected on the sides and aft by large opening platforms. The use of very thin-cut and treated stone conveys this environment a relaxing zen touch. Behind the bar, there is a LED TV visible from everywhere in the room, ideal for the projection of films or ambience videos.
On the main deck, the new ISA GT 70 offers five double cabins including a VIP with lounge. The owner’s cabin is located forward on the upper deck with two bathrooms, one with a tub and one with a shower, a vanity area and two wardrobes.
A 50-metre model will also soon be presented to make history in this new Gran Turismo line.
