Italian yacht builder ISA has announced the sale of its first ever ISA 140’ composite motoryacht.

Billed as the only yacht to combine high performance with low fuel consumption, the ISA 140’ boasts a unique propulsion system which allows it to hit a maximum speed of 32 knots and a cruising speed of 26 knots, with significant fuel consumption savings.

The vessel’s composite construction features a hull and superstructure built from Fibre Reinforced Plastic (FRP), while the deck, parts of the superstructure and accessories are all constructed using vacuum assisted resin infusion (VARTM).

The hull is said to be one of the largest ever made on a single mould in one go. The result, ISA claims, is a yacht that is superior in both lightness and stiffness compared to vessels of the same category made using traditional techniques.

The yacht’s exterior design was by Andrea Vallicelli and displays a bold and dramatic feel, with strong diagonal lines running from the sundeck to the stern, mirroring the flair of the distinctive sweeping staircases.

With five cabins, the ISA 140 can accommodate up to 10 guests, who can enjoy all the yacht’s extensive outdoor spaces, including a vast sundeck and a cosy beach area with a generous swimming platform. Comfort at anchor is guaranteed by the fixed fin stabilizers and electric actuators.

The renowned Nuvolari & Lenard Design carried out the interior design on this yacht.
