Just over a month after the presentation of its new GT line, ISA Yachts, a brand of Palumbo Superyachts, is thrilled to announce the sale of a new ISA Gran Turismo 80m to be delivered in 2027.

The Owner who enjoyed the iconic ISA M/Y OKTO for several years is looking to the future and is trusting the Palumbo Superyachts shipyard and its ISA Yachts brand to create a new and innovative megayacht.

“A long-standing acquaintance and mutual respect that we have been nurturing for years. Indeed, the Owner has always relied on Palumbo Superyachts for the maintenance of his superyacht. This allowed us to create a project tailored to his needs by formulating a new model with high-performance lines that winks at the near future. I would like to thank the entire work team, in particular Francesco Fico as Owner’s Representative; Carlo and Enrico of Team For Design for their highly professional commitment and dedication to this project, which has allowed us to significantly shorten development times.”, comments Giuseppe Palumbo, CEO of Palumbo Superyachts.

Team for Design’s Enrico Gobbi has developed the exterior lines and will also elaborate the interior design. The naval architecture is by Palumbo Superyachts.

ISA GT 80 is a streamlined coupè, with sinuous lines overturning the concept of exterior / interior to create a unique and sophisticated leitmotif.

The thought out colour contrast of the hull, in steel gray with charcoal details, combined with the minimal windows makes the project even more streamlined and emphasizes its horizontal profile.

The skylounge that houses the wheelhouse seems almost as set back in order not to break the slender line and accentuate the characteristic ISA arch, here even more dynamic, which connects all the decks.

Forward, on the main deck, we find an infinity pool connected to the Owner’s cabin through a lit up path with a great scenic effect. The Owner’s cabin is a proper glasshouse, where the very light uprights disappear to make room to the opening floor-to-ceiling windows, amplifying the feeling of continuity between indoor and outdoor. The outdoor furnishings are organic, characterized by very modern round and curved shapes combined with warm wood for a glamorous but substantial elegance.

The equipped gym is located on the starboard side of the upper deck which also houses the pilot house and the Captain’s cabin.

ISA GT 80 has 5 double cabins, of which one s a VIP with lounge, located on the main deck. The Owner’s cabin on the upper deck forward consists of two bathrooms, one with tub and shower, a vanity area, two wardrobes and an office. A sixth VIP cabin with twin beds has been provided on the lower deck.

The crew quarters, located on the lower deck, comprise 10 cabins that can accommodate up to 18 people.

The client is assisted by Francesco Fico as Owner’s Representative.
