ISA Yachts debuts a 23 meter yacht that develops a new cruise concept and will be the first of a full range of an innovative range.
Large volumes compared to her size, on board comfort, low consumption for a long-range navigation, and outdoor spaces designed to enjoy close contact with nature: these are the key elements of the new ISA Yachts Extra 76 and all the subsequent range.
ISA EXTRA 76: that word stands for Extra Ordinary
Designed by Francesco Guida, EXTRA 76 expresses a distinctive character and personality already from outside: the play of contrasts on the yacht’s sides between light-coloured fiberglass and dark glazing recalls at first glance the lines of a traditional sport yacht, but a more careful look reveals the full-height volume that extends almost to the bow stem. The large vertical and horizontal glazed surfaces are combined like part of a crystal sphere, and offer plenty of natural light and space for a yacht a ‘mere’ 76 feet long.
The open air life is guaranteed by generous outdoor spaces, designed to enjoy maximum comfort. The cockpit, which on a mega yacht would be called a beach club, delivers unusual volumes, on three levels dropping down to the water: the dining area with a large table protected by the overhang of the flybridge, the central section furnished with big sofas, a table and a maxi sun lounging pad, and the stern swim platform.
The fly deck offers a second helm station, an area for socialising with a C-shaped sofa and a huge sun lounging pad, without compromising on the exterior styling of EXTRA 76 in any way.
Below deck EXTRA 76 boasts a full-beam owner’s cabin with en-suite bathroom and twin basins, a shower and a separate bath tub, as well as a walk-in closet. For guests there are a VIP cabin to fore with a double bed and two double cabins with twin beds. The cabin for two crew is in the bow and has a private head.
The propulsion system of EXTRA 76 relies on two Volvo Penta IPS 1050 engines that take the boat to a maximum speed of 22 knots in semi-displacement mode and provide a range of over 700 nautical miles at cruising speed.
In addition, the glazed surfaces in the saloon incorporate photo-voltaic cells to generate clean power. This is used to recharge the service batteries, so that equipment like lights and appliances can be used without turning on the generators at anchor.
