Construction resumes

The construction of the new 65-metre ISA Classic is underway at the Palumbo Superyachts shipyard in Ancona.

11 June 2020


The construction of the new 65-metre ISA Classic has resumed following the lifting of lockdown, and its launch is expected to take place in 2021.

Over 1400 GT, it is characterised by a classic profile and built using modern construction features.

Behind the transom hides a series of considerably significant technical solutions. First of all, the stern door folds down to sea level, becoming a beach area.

Simultaneously, the corresponding portion of the aft swim platform tilts and aligns itself with the opened stern door, essentially creating a same-floor tailgate at water level. When all three doors are opened, the whole area turns into an amazing 180-square-metre beach club.

The gangway opening mechanism is designed to be installed sideways on the port side of the transom, rather than lengthwise. It is divided into two sections and is provided with a pantograph retracting system that once the gangway is extended, shuts its lower part (for aesthetic reasons).


This system has been specifically engineered to allow for a 2.10-metre ceiling height throughout the whole beach club.

Versatility and lighting effects are the key elements of this portion of the Lower Deck, consisting of lounge area, bar, showers, fully equipped gym, sauna, massage room and even a welcome area for guest boarding and disembarking.

Access to the Beach Club is provided in three separate ways: an external staircase, an internal staircase to the right of the massage room, and lastly a transparent glass corridor, which crossing the engine room, directly connects the beach club to the Lower Deck lobby and the guest cabins.

Another element that turns out to be lively and of great effect, thanks to the perfect indirect integration of light and the skilful use of blue, is the frosted and knurled Murano glass panel decorating the front of the bar counter.

The lighting system has also been studied in detail and includes a lane of LED ceiling lights that run symmetrically to the central hatch, accompanying the view up to the back wall. The latter is made up of sinuous waves of teak and LED lights that are then reflected on the two stainless steel and glass sheets on the ceiling.

In fact, this glass is the floor of the swimming pool on the Main Deck. This solution allows shimmering light from the pool to filter through the water, creating a dappled light effect and an enchanting atmosphere both day and night.

As a final touch, modern clean line furniture has been selected to interact with the outdoors in perfect harmony.

The ISA Classic 65 has six cabins (plus a seventh convertible), including a full-beam owner’s suite located forward on the main deck.

Two swimming pools (one with a countercurrent swimming system), gym, massage room with sea view, Turkish bath, outdoor cinema room, two jet skis and two tenders, are just a few of the chosen amenities on board this jewel of the sea.
