Representing the first product in ISA's Granturismo range, M/Y PHILMI is a 2-deck steel/aluminum displacement motoryacht that commands attention for strong, sporty lines and elegant styling.
Powered by 2 CAT engines, this 43-meter plumb bow yacht designed by Andrea Vallicelli can reach 17 knots max and cruises at 15 knots, with a range of 2800 nm at cruising speed. With 4 cabins plus the master, she accommodates 10 guests.
Interior design is by Sandrine Melot. This is the second yacht that Sandrine Melot has undertaken for the same owners, who were closely involved in every component of the design. With a palette comprised of dominant warm colors, pale gray wood links the different spaces and their respective color themes. The interior is crisp, and light is a major feature with skylights providing an abundance of natural light throughout. The bar features a centerpiece designed by Sandrine Melot and specially made by Swarovski.
The outdoor areas are spacious for a boat of this size, and feature specially designed exterior furniture and decorative panels. The flybridge bar features a column of ice which appears transparent but reveals colors in the evening. Circular sun pads integrated in the "teak beach” beside the Jacuzzi benefit from the shade of adjustable canopies. In the stern area a gym opens onto a large swim platform while an athwartships tender garage hosts the tender. Sea trials for M/Y PHILMI will start next week. Delivery to her owners is scheduled for June.
New for ISA Yachts, the Granturismo line was created to respond to a market demand for steel/aluminium displacement yachts with a balance between their internal and external areas. 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 43 meter GT was signed 6 months later representing the second sale in the Granturismo range.
