ISA Yachts Launches 43M Philmi
Published: Wednesday, 16 April 2014
March 29, 2014 saw the launch of the first ISA Granturismo 43-metre, christened Philmi. The Granturismo concept was presented to the yachting community in September 2011 at the Monaco Yacht Show, and the contract for the construction of Philmi was signed six months later.
Philmi is a two-deck, displacement hulled motor yacht in steel and aluminium, featuring a striking exterior design and colour scheme. The sleek hull features a plumb bow, which allowed her designers to make the most of the yacht’s length. The Granturismo concept centres around an equilibrium between indoor and outdoor space, and as a result the outdoor spaces on Philmi are vast and comfortable.
Powered by two CAT engines this Andrea Vallicelli designed superyacht cruises at 15 knots, can reach 17 knots when pressed, and has a range of 2,800 nm at cruising speed. She has four guest cabins, plus the master's suite, and can accommodate seven crew.
