The Ancona-based shipyard ISA Yachts presents the ROUTE 66 currently under construction and scheduled for delivery in spring 2017.

The project name ROUTE 66 is based on the famous highway route in the United States which was a 4.000 KM street from Chicago (Illinois) to Santa Monica (California).  The name embodied freedom, which is also the concept of this motor yacht concept without compromising the space and comfort that the owner would expect from a steel and aluminum displacement yacht. The overall beauty of yachts over the years has been lost to interior space, on the contrary ROUTE 66’s offers space for owners who love the sea and like to be outside.

Key Features:

  • Elegant lines with balanced proportions of the superstructure
  • Sleek hull increasing efficiency and motion comfort
  • Large outdoor spaces on all three decks – Very spacious beach club including
    complete wellness center

ROUTE 66 is a motor yacht with lots of space in relation to the total volume and her lines are sleek and graceful. The design does not achieve extra deck space by stacking the decks, there is not the piled-up effect – one layer after the other, the philosophy of the whole concept is to guarantee the owners space and comfort they would expect.

 

Developed from the 65m Granturismo platform, this full displacement yacht is a 4-decks vessel with an aluminum superstructure and steel hull which architectural structure is based on a strong contrast between the harmonious and curvaceous lines of the decks and the rigorous and diamond-like geometry of the transom and of the sundeck. The hull shape and bow are optimized for both efficiency and comfort. Her 11-meter beam confers ROUTE 66 a sleek and elegant line.

The interior layout emphasizes the osmosis between indoor and outdoor areas.
The main deck saloon presents the idea of a lounge which opens to the cockpit with a unique perception of spaces. The dining room, situated forward of the salon, totally enjoys the light coming from the full height side bulkhead windows. The enormous beach area can be easily shaped as a real sensorial SPA, as the layout easily allows a sauna, an emotional shower, and hammam.

The interior layout is completed by the 5 guest cabins plus the master suite so that ROUTE 66 can accommodate 12 guests.
Forward the flush deck can easily enclose an helipad. Mooring area and tender garage for 8m-rescue tender and jet skies are underneath this area. The main tender garage is located starboard on the lower deck opposite to the gym.

Powered by 2 CAT engines, this 66M designed by Andrea Vallicelli, can reach 18 knots max and cruises at 16 knots. Thanks to a spectacular stern and an aggressive plum bow, this outstanding 66 meters is destined to become an icon yacht in its segment.

The naval architecture is developed in-house by ISA Yachts Technical Department.
