ISA's newly launched 120-foot (37-meter) Clorinda
Less than a year after ISA Yachts' acquisition of its new yard in Ancona, the Italian builder has launched the 120-foot (37-meter) Clorinda. The Sport 120 is a model that strongly reflects the philosophy and aesthetic features of the ISA Yachts production, representing an “icon” of the Italian brand. She combines sporty and timeless elegance, exterior living space and a rich interior.
“The launch of Clorinda has a huge symbolic value for ISA,” said Giuseppe Palumbo, CEO of ISA Yachts. “This is a first goal and we want to deem it as a good wish, and a sign of a true rebirth and transition towards a brand new course. A course which we started in a very quick time. Since its foundation in 2001, ISA Yachts has been a synonym of innovation, quality, style and excellence of 'Made In Italy.' These are the very values upon which we are building our future strategy of development, with the goal to confirm a leadership position among the top world superyacht builders.”
Clorinda represents a crossover of sorts between previous models and new ones designed by Enrico Gobbi. This latest version of the ISA Sport 120 is distinguished from her sisters by the introduction of new design elements such as the dark color fashion plates with glass inserts and the dark grey bottom line; and functional ones, like the tender garage to port and jet ski garages on both sides, a solarium, and a skylight with blackout option for more in the master suite.
ISA's Sport 120 concept was made for owners who want a combination of sporty and elegant, who enjoy the large exterior spaces of an open yacht as well as the comfortable internal areas.
The architectural framework was conceived to enhance the relation to the environment and to enlarge the deck areas in contact with water or exposed to sunshine. The proportion between exterior and interior spaces is well balanced, with large terraces above the sea, a spacious cockpit and flybridge, and large bright staterooms and salon. The master stateroom comprises two levels, using the forward main deck and lower deck.
The design is based on a flybridge motoryacht profile and stands out for its essential features and for its strong volumetric solutions conferring it an almost sculptural expressiveness.
The deckhouse and the bridge deck stand out for the marked side frames that run lengthwise giving to the whole a strong dynamic tension. Two visible double aft deck stairways connecting the swim platform to the sundeck, a signature of ISA Yachts, have an architectural value strengthened by two high bulwarks connecting the swim platform to the bow.
The sundeck is divided into different areas according to the activities they are conceived for. Forward is the relaxation area with two built-in sofas located behind the windscreen and the starboard navigation bridge; on port side a wet bar is equipped with refrigerator, ice-maker, sink, and dumbwaiter connected to the galley. Further aft, in the middle of the deck, is the dining area with a table for 12 guests. The roll-bar acts as a sunshade over the dining area and allows guests to enjoy the fresh air while sheltered from the sun.
Accommodation for up to 10 guests is split across five comfortable staterooms, while the crew quarters allow for a staff of five in three cabins. The main dining area opens outward by way of six curved, sliding-glass doors.
Clorinda is propelled by three MTU 16V 2000 M96 engines, coupled to twin KaMeWa waterjets and a middle KaMeWa booster. Maneuverability is reported to be agile and smooth, with a top speed of 33 knots and a 27-knot cruise.
