Solo Yacht Tankoa

Tankoa S701 "SOLO"

Project S701 by Tankoa Yachts has been launched and christened M/Y SOLO.

The 70m concept S701 is designed for open-plan living spaces to bring the outdoor to indoor. The “Sea Lounge” features an oversized beach club with an integrated bar. Also, a sauna, hammam and private balconies with sea view are disposed of here. The panorama dining area makes it feel outside but protects from the outside elements.

The touch and go helicopter landing area of M/Y SOLO can be transformed into a dance floor. The Sky Lounge has a big sized gym and massage area. Thanks to her big windows with a free sea view. A state of the art pool and with the sunbathing area can be found on the Sky Lounge too. The Sun Terrace invites with sun beds, sofas, and a 360° view.

The almost 100 m² master stateroom is located on the foredeck area under the bridge and allows a 180° view over the sea. Here is also a private studio, private jacuzzi and private sunbathing area.

Michel Karsenti, the sales and marketing director of Tankoa commented:

“Our aim is not to compete with our Italian colleagues, it is to compete with Northern European shipyards. There is a highly tangible reason why our price is higher. But our Italian business model and regulations mean that we will be more competitive than Northern Europe.”

Interior Renderings

SOLO has six cabins for twelve guests. The owner has a private deck with master suite above the main deck. It features a private pool and sunbathing forward. The private deck has also an office and an extra relax area. Furthermore, an aft area with bar, seatings and the helipad.

The guest cabins are located on the main deck. There are two double cabins, two twin cabins, and one VIP cabin.

The lower deck accommodates a crew of 17 (plus captain next to the bridge) on the lower deck. Alongside a crew mess, it contains also an extra relax area for the crew. A hospital and the galley is also on the lower deck.

Tankoa S701 Bullet Points

Sales and Marketing Director Michel Karsenti comments:

“The owner is a truly experienced boat lover. This is his second build with Tankoa and his wish is now to put Solo on the market for sale and build a new Tankoa, probably larger. It is surely rewarding for all of us at Tankoa to see a client who basically has very little time to enjoy his boat considering his hectic business life but enjoys the construction and creation process so much. 
As much as we would like to see the client enjoy his boat, we are truly happy to have developed such trustful relationship with such knowledgeable client. Solo will be exhibited in Monaco and will surely sale quickly as she is an exceptional yacht that will demonstrate that Tankoa is the alternative to Northern European shipyard to build a high-quality yacht at reasonable cost and extreme flexibility. 
But overall, the most amazing factor between his previous yacht, Suerte and the new one, Solo, is the countless number of technical details that have been improved. The interior is also very different with all seats and tables by Fendi Casa. I am pretty sure Solo, like Vertige, will have a big impact on the market at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show.”

Nono Yacht Admiral


ADMIRAL Yachts launched the Impero 37 (m) christened NONO.

NONO belongs to the Impero Series by Admiral and features an exterior design by Luca Dini and interior design by the in-house design office Admiral ‘Centro Stile’. The full-aluminum semi-displacement yacht has a raised pilothouse and was constructed in full-aluminum. The yacht reaches a top speed of 20 knots.

NONO has an elegant metallic light-bronze hull and a pearl-white superstructure with mat black areas in correspondence of the main deck windows and hardtop details.

The all yacht features large glass surfaces which deliver a lot of light to the interiors, making the guests feeling like in a modern villa.
This feature also helps with the overall design of the yacht, which seems lighter too, not to say that the interior volumes feel bigger than on other yachts of the same size. This is particularly emphasized in the aft area of the main salon, as this is an all glass area, only interrupted by little pieces of structures, as the engine room machinery, which is usually placed within this area, has been moved a bit forward.

The main deck features huge and comfortable spaces with substantial headroom, especially in the main salon area, while the full headroom opening sliding doors on both sides further contribute to the open space feeling of the deck. Within the main salon also the dining area finds place.

A little bit forward there is the separate pantry for crew, which is connected to the side deck through a watertight door; the pantry gives access to the wheelhouse and to the galley area, which is directly connected with the crew quarter, placed on the lower deck and including two double crew cabins and a captain’s cabin, all with ensuite bathroom. The crew area also includes a crew mess and a separate laundry.

Forward on the main deck is all about the master cabin, taking the full beam of the yacht and featuring large side windows which give natural light to the whole environment.
The suite includes a large ensuite bathroom located aft, which is directly connected with two walking wardrobes, his and hers.

On the lower deck, four large guest cabins find a place, two of which are VIP’s and may be considered almost as a second and third owner’s cabin, due to the use of the yacht, which is going to be private only and used by the whole family of the Owner. Each cabin features its own bathroom and all the hull ports are opening.

Going back to the main deck aft cockpit of NONO, the guests are surrounded by large spaces, all dedicated to relaxing, sunbathing and ‘al fresco’ dinners; this area also gives access to the aft beach club, where the transom door opens up, creating a big aft terrace. This area also includes a bar corner, a day head, and a steam bath.

Crew and guests of NONO can easily access to the garage, which features a side opening door and has been designed for hosting tenders up to 5m, operated by a travel lift crane. The garage also gives the most comfortable access to the engine room, which also includes an engine control room and which can be also accessed from the main deck.

Forward on the main deck, placed on the port side, a structural staircase, hidden in the superstructure, bring the guests up on the sundeck; this is actually a huge terrace overlooking the sea, split into two different levels. The one forward is dedicated to dining and it’s also provided with a bar corner, lounge area and remote steering wheel position, while aft a big hot tube for up to 8 people is placed, taking a substantial part of the area. At the very forward aft end of the deck, it’s also possible to store a smaller tender, together with a jet ski, while at the forward end a wide companionway brings you down to the wheelhouse.

A further external space has been nicely obtained at the very forward end of the hull, lowering the technical anchor area which is hidden by two opening ports that deliver a clean and flushed bow area. This area is further enriched by a sitting area and an up & down coffee table. This area is very easily accessible through the main deck side passages, as those take to two staircases which bring you over the master suite and then again down to the bow. Over the master suite, just in front of the wheelhouse, a large sunbathing area is also provided.

ESNY Project Taurus water side by Esenyacht

Esenyacht presents 50m Composite Motor Yacht "Taurus"

Taurus is a 50m composite motor yacht project by Turkish shipyard Esenyacht

With its lightweight construction and ultra-efficient hull form this is a yacht ideal both for high-speed trips at speeds of 30 knots or more, and worldwide cruising for the more adventurous.

Most of all, however, this is a yacht for those who enjoy entertaining family, friends and business associates. Mannerfelt Design Team in partnership with Esenyacht has created an internal layout that emphasizes large, flexible interior spaces that can be adapted both for large scale entertaining and adapted for more private gatherings.

ESNY Project Taurus water side by Esenyacht

The largest space onboard of Taurus is the main saloon on the middle deck, which features enormous windows for stunning views across the surrounding area. This can be adapted for all types of social gatherings ranging from exclusive dinner parties to full nightclub mode. At the rear, it opens out onto an expansive rear deck with additional seating for those who wish to enjoy the open air.

Taurus‘ owner’s suite, conveniently also located on the middle deck but in the forward section of the yacht, leaves the noise and activity of the saloon far behind, making it ideal for more private occasions. The stateroom itself is exceptionally large for its class, being an impressive 98 square meters, and has an area with seating and a coffee table. This looks out over a partially enclosed and very private 25 square meter foredeck accessed directly and only from the owner’s suite.

With accommodation for ten guests and 12 crew, the owner can invite a sizeable party for cruising and be assured that he and his guests will be well looked after by the crew and ancillary staff.

32m Liberty by Columbus Yachts

Liberty (32m) by Columbus and Marco Casali

The Italian superyacht brand Columbus Yachts (part of Palumbo Group) started the construction of the 32m "Liberty" designed by Marco Casali - Too Design.

There is very much freedom in developing of each unit and to enjoy the yacht. Long journeys at 12 knots with low emission and diesel consumption or fast stages at 20 knots with an award winning hybrid propulsion developed by Palumbo Group. This yacht concept has the freedom to design a custom layout, interior design and also exterior by the client.

The Liberty concept was developed for owners who love wide spaces and being close to the sea. Liberty provides a new way of deck volume. The upper deck was removed and has a large sun deck with an area for sunbathing, dining (up to 14 people) and a fly bridge. The reduced height benefits also the stability of the yacht. But a raised pilot house version is also available.

32m Liberty by Columbus Yachts
Columbus Yachts 32m Liberty

The beach area with a big bathing platform can host a dinette with American bar, a Spa or a Gym.

For example, the deck saloon area is fully flat with full height windows and is offered in different layout with or without galley on it. The bow area is provided for hosting tenders (up to 6m) and toys with a front facing sofa but could be managed also as a free set up space for sunbeds, tables etc.

The interior design is following the Liberty name of the range. Space could host free furniture allowing each owner in expressing his own style.

For the lower deck, the crew quarters could be equipped with a full galley or an independent entrance at the bow. The guest cabins could be from 3 to 5 until 6 total ones with the Owner on the main deck.

The owners’ cabin could be positioned in the aft part of the lower deck to emphasize the full beam area or on the main deck with the raised pilot house option wit a full front view.

The Liberty 32 is the first unit of range of trawler styled yachts in range from 25m up to 38m.

45m Atomic Sunrise Yachts

45m "Atomic" debuts at FLIBS 2014

Sunrise Yachts introduces new 45m yacht Atomic at FLIBS 2014

The second vessel in the Sunrise 45m series was delivered last month in Antalya. The yacht will debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, October 30 – November 3, 2014.

Timeless yacht concepts last forever: Five years after delivering Africa, Sunrise Yachts launched a sister ship in August in Antalya started as Project Sunset - Hull 182. The yacht's name Atomic remained confidential until its delivery to its North-American client as the yacht was a surprise to his family!

Atomic is a three-deck, deep-sea, full displacement, transatlantic, steel hull and aluminium superstructure luxury motor yacht, built to operate for private use or charter in all seas and oceans of the world.

The yacht’s main characteristics include large volumes at 499 Gross Tons, excellent deck heights, great stability, comfort and seaworthiness, very low levels of sound and vibration, an affective layout, and extreme fuel efficiency.

A full-length technical tunnel running from the engine room to the bow-thruster compartment – an unprecedented feature on yachts in this category until the launch of the first vessel in the series, Africa – provides easy access to tanks and systems at bilge deck level.

The interior design was entrusted to the talent of Nantes-based Franck Darnet Design, who had previously designed the interior for Africa. In sharp contrast with the first Sunrise 45m’s dark tropical woods, "Hull 182”’s contemporary and elegant décor will feature light veneers and a bright colour scheme.

Following the yacht's maiden cruise in Turkey and Greece last month, the owner stated:

[quote]"I was thrilled to step aboard Atomic at the launch. As I walked around the yacht I found everything to be just as designed. The team at Sunrise have built me a master piece, perfect in fit and finish and crafted with a talent for detail. It was a pleasure working with the young company owners and team as they all wanted to go beyond the norm to create a wonderful yachting experience. I love the sturdy steel hull built to be a world wide capable yacht yet designed to be miserly on fuel. Atomic will be an awesome floating family home, a base for great adventure."[/quote]

Guillaume Roché, the Sunrise Yachts CEO, stated:

[quote]“Just like M/Y Africa was one of the “star” yachts when introduced at the Monaco Yacht Show, we are confident that the new 45m will be one of the most notable yachts delivered worldwide this year in its category. We believe that the yacht further demonstrates our commitment to excellence and to continually improving our standards while remaining a competitive alternative to quality European builders.”[/quote]

Atomic will be showcased – by appointment only – at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, October 30-November 3rd, 2014.

Oceanic Yachts 90 Tsa Tsa

Oceanic 90 "Tsa Tsa"

Canados presents more details and images of their Oceanic 90 TSA TSA during her sea trials.

Amongst the amenities offered by this first yacht is an upper deck owner’s suite with private terrace, while a VIP plus two guest cabins are located on the lower deck.

The interior decoration is a result of a study undertaken by the in-house design studio in conjunction with the Owner. The primary timbers used throughout will consist of limed Grey Oak, Macassar Ebony, Wengé, lacquered wood and wood floors.

The convertible aft deck of TSA TSA, with oversized modular sofas, will stow a 6.50m diesel powered SACS tender while two 3-seater personal water-crafts, 2 Seabobs, and one JetLev will be stored in the transom garage. An additional stand-up JetSki will be installed on the deck, right under the 1.5-ton capacity Opacmare crane.

TSA TSA‘s engine room will be buffered from the lower deck amenities by a spectacular sound insulation system engineered like on a 50-meter yacht and the by the vast crew quarters and custom made galley.

As the entire Oceanic Yachts production – OY 90 #1 maintains the brand-new philosophy whose main features are: extended outdoor and indoor living volumes, ability to carry large toys and tenders, high performance and ability to navigate at economic speed with low fuel consumption, resulting in reduced overall operating costs.

About Oceanic 90

The conceptual architecture of the underwater part of the hull of the Oceanic 90′ was a challenge in itself. Despite the numerous tank tests Oceanic Yachts did at the “INSEAN”, the Rome tank testing facility and the very positive results they obtained, the actual scale one results were beyond expectations. The goal was to find a hull design that would allow reducing the buoyancy of the aft part of the hull but that would also allow for very low-speed planing as well as a top end speed at least similar to most motor yachts this size.

Oceanic Yachts managing director, Michel Karsenti, refers:

“I must say we achieved all our goals. We wanted to reduce buoyancy aft to be able to run the boat at low speed with the handling that would be as close as possible to a typical displacement hull”.

Below 15 knots, the balance of the hull is similar to a heavy displacement boat, which reduces the bouncing every planning hull suffers at slow speed. By staying perfectly flat, the boat benefits from a longer running surface that allows the boat to run with minimal kW needs. At 8 knots, the Oceanic 90′ burns just under 40 liters of diesel for both engines, while at 10 knots, the consumption is 70 liters.

The underwater exhaust positioned just before the second step of the hull allow to run on plane as slow as 16.5 knots, which is a true achievement.

The first Oceanic 90′ was overbuilt but still runs at 22 knots cruising and can reach 26.8 knots at full speed with 2/3 load (record in Cannes during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2014)

“The production series will be built with an entire Kevlar superstructure that will reduce the weight, lower the center of gravity, and we are confident we will then be able to reach 23 knots cruising speed and more than 27 knots top speed”, ends Karsenti

Yara 44 ISA Yachts

Concept: Yara 44 by ISA Yachts

The Yara 44 (m) is a motor yacht creation by Italian yard ISA Yachts and Dutch studios Omega Architects and Van Oossanen

The brief said to design a fast yacht with modern lines and interior features to bring outside inside. Omega Architects approach every new project studying the heritage of the shipyards and trying to understand the brand, with the aim to maintain the established tradition and at the same time propose new features.

For this project, Omega Architects try to create new elements of exterior design, at the same time maintaining a gentle looking and some of the soft lines in particular, for which ISA Yachts is well known. The result is a sturdy, though elegant yacht design.

Yara 44 ISA Yachts

The design concept

A revolutionary challenge came out during the very first meeting: Development of 2 projects, the Yara 44 and the Yara 48, with the same platform. Omega and Van Oossanen Naval Architects managed to “divide” the profile of the 44m, respecting construction bonds, and stretch it until 48m. Superstructure’s lines have been adapted to follow the new shape, and then back and forward again. This link between the 2 projects allows a possible client to choose the length in a second moment, creating an advantage for marketing. Moreover, the 44m could be marketed at a competitive price, not losing the quality on which ISA Yachts puts the emphasis, as a result of the recently rationalized production. The 48m will be based on exactly the same hull lines as the 44m, just with rearranged shallow propeller tunnels.

Design-wise, the 44m design is slightly aft leaning, the 48m design is slightly forward leaning, with the result that the “small“ one acts as the naughty one, while the 48m is the big sturdy sister. Another fixed point, that was clear from the draw of the first line, was the relationship with the sea. These 2 yachts have low bulwarks, 2/3 of the windows are full height, creating versatility in relaxation, openness and panorama views from all over the boats.

Yara 44 ISA Yachts

Lower Deck

The crew is placed forward with dedicated galley and dining table. To be noted: This crew compartment is larger compared to most other yachts of these sizes since both yachts comply with MCA regulations. Regarding the guest area, 2 twins and 2 VIPs cabins are served by a central round stair. On aft, beach club houses a sauna, toilet and a service counter, a concept derived from the Russian traditional “banya”, which consists of 3 rooms; quite similar, in the 44m we have a sauna or steam room, a bathroom and an area to rest and relax with a counter cabinet for drinks. In the 48m, we also have a bar.

Middle Deck

The owner has here a full beam private suite with double bathrooms. The windows are full height to create a spacious and light full cabin. Amidships, the crew has a separated traffic route that allows them to reach galley and WD with dedicated stairs.

The dining area has also full height windows that give a see-through experience: that was achieved lowering the exterior bulwarks. Dining area and the gigantic lounge area on aft are divided by glass doors. This huge exterior space was thought as a whole: we have continuity in ceiling and teak planking. In spite of this, half of the area can be closed with glass sliding doors. And, when the room is closed, air-conditioning is guaranteed, like a big bay window. The lounge area ends with a Jacuzzi placed aft, almost flush with deck to respect the panorama view from inside. The Jacuzzi is a point around which it develops an entire seating arrangement, meant to be a party or relaxed meeting. The water curtains falling from the overhang to the Jacuzzi is an additional feature to this area.

Yara 44 ISA Yachts


Mainly a crew area, with a 6m tender, MOB and jet ski served by a crane. Particular attention was given to visibility on wheelhouse: the division of glass panels and their angle are studied to help the captain during sailing. Captain has his cabin behind the wheelhouse, close to pantry and crew’s stair.

The wheelhouse deck has on aft a cozy sky lounge with bar. The area is connected through glass sliding doors to an external dining table and lounge.

Yara 44 ISA Yachts


Is thought of giving a panorama view: Legs of the mast are placed on deck to keep the deck as free as possible. To avoid railings, a glass bulwark protects the area. We have 2 different proposed layouts for the 44m and the 48m: On the 48m, in between the mast’s legs, we have a Jacuzzi with sunbeds.

The traditional layout of the Yara 44 follows 10 person dining table on SB, a counter bar on PS. The forward area is dedicated to seats. On the 44m, a bar with a pop-up TV is integrated into between mast’s legs. On forward we have a spacious lounge area, while the sunbathing part is reserved on aft. This creates a sort of “bar sport” atmosphere where guests can gather for watching a movie or a match, still being outside but in a privacy-guaranteed area.

Tomorrow Profile 1 108m Gigayacht

Details of 108m "Tomorrow" by Pride Mega Yachts

Pride Mega Yachts released information of their 108m TOMORROW

Able to host up to 26 guests, with 30 crew, Tomorrow is a spacious six deck vessel. Naval architecture is by Azure Naval Architects and the exterior and interior design by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design. A design for the future, Tomorrow represents the positivity and hope that the future holds, and encompasses a drive for forward-thinking innovation. 

The design team for Tomorrow drew inspiration from Xian Dai, the new era of modernity, an age in which new visions and exciting technology generate prosperity and a higher quality of life. Understanding that yachting will increasingly be the choice of those looking for quality family time and an escape from the confines of everyday life, Tomorrow is a sanctuary for those looking to enjoy cruising the world’s beautiful waters.


Tomorrow Profile 1 108m Gigayacht

Providing independence and comfort, Tomorrow is a versatile design, suited as a family yacht, an exploration base and for socializing and high-end entertainment. The interior styling is centered around a luxurious laid back beach style, personalized by the owner’s choice of artwork. Warm and open spaces are embellished with custom furniture, rich materials, intricate patterns and complementary natural textures.


Tomorrow Swimming Pool 1 108m Gigayacht


Characteristic of all Pride Mega Yachts’ projects, Tomorrow boasts an impressive interior volume of 4800GT, with space and height a key feature throughout every space. A modern design, with sweeping lines and circular forms, creates a functional yet spatial experience. Curved ceiling-to-floor glass and paneling on the three top decks of the superstructure and the two other aft decks open up unobstructed views and easy access to the outside areas. This spacious feeling flows through into the main lounge which has an imposing interior height of almost three meters.

A special interior feature is a large nautilus shell inspired staircase, connecting all decks except the sun deck. The staircase is highlighted by a circular skylight that bathes every deck in natural light.



Tomorrow maximizes all exterior spaces, with a focus on social interaction. Stunning views combine with well-equipped spaces, replete with sunbeds, pools and Jacuzzi’s. On the main deck, a striking circular pool with recessed seating is a focal point. 

Sliding ceiling-to-floor glass doors seamlessly connect the exterior to the interior spaces. Accessibility to the aft decks is further facilitated by a split level set-up which accommodates the royal half-circular exterior stairs. On the aft deck, a swim platform connects to a large indoor beach club, allowing guests to enjoy time close to the sea.




Nowhere is the space on board Tomorrow better demonstrated than on the owner’s private deck. The owner’s stateroom features an almost floor-to-ceiling glass facade, while a huge circular skylight is a window to the skies and stars. Bleached walnut back wall panels, silk carpets with a textured wave pattern and exclusive sunburst marquetry veneer on the doors bring further richness and refinement.

The owner’s aft deck lounge will allow the owners to enjoy close proximity to the sea from rotating seating by the glass doors that lead out to the aft deck. A light dome in the teak ceiling allows for different moods and ambiances to be created.

A private owner’s lounge is a welcome area of retreat, offering enhanced privacy to allow rest and relaxation in a more intimate atmosphere. High-quality hardwood flooring flows through from the interior to merge with the exterior deck, once again emphasizing the connection between the inside and outside spaces.

Construction will begin in 2015.

Sarp Yacht 46m Exterior

Sarp Yacht 46m work in progress

Sarp Yacht from Antalya is a very young shipyard and is working on their kick-off project. A 46m motor yacht.

The 46m was designed by Osman Tanju Kalaycıoğlu (exterior) and Adam Lay (interior). The team conducted hull tests at the Ship Design and Research Centre Centrum Techniki Okrętowej (CTO) in Gdansk to create a yacht with low resistance and wave profile.

Osman Tanju Kalaycıoğlu comments:

[quote]"Her shape and size are carefully refined to stay just below the 500 gross ton mark. Steel was the obvious choice for a strong and reliable hull with ample tank capacity. However, we opted for epoxy composite to construct our curvy superstructure. By this way, we could save weight from superstructure and fairing compound. All these became a reality thanks to the diligence and experience of our yard manager Emre Sandan and his team."[/quote]

Adam Lay created the interior like a loft apartment with a touch of a mountain chalet. The materials are a combination of high-end natural timber and metal finishes.

Taking inspiration from natural materials and textures, open grained planked wooden floors, quality leathers and intricate metal detailing produce a distinguished colour palette of rich dark bronzes, silvers and grey stained ash veneer.

The theme is extended throughout the yacht. Large screens feature in the main saloon entrance with petrified patterned leaves set between sheets of clear glass. Wall finishes are a balance of wooden planks and pewter coloured slubbed silk wallpaper.
Customised to suit the décor in each cabin, satin nickel door and cabinet hardware adds a touch of refined sparkle to the calm and comfortable backdrop.

Honed stone tiles and flooring in the bathrooms compliment the fine Dornbracht tapware and accessories. Pebbles inlaid into the bathroom floor add further texture.

Well chosen furniture includes Minotti sofas, Glyn Peter Machin and Giorgetti chairs. Superior fabrics by Rubelli, Weitzner, Lelievre, Chase Erwin, Romo, Kravet and Armani Casa tie the interior together with highlights of bright colour, bold graphics and accents.

Intended to make a sophisticated statement with a strong visual impact, the outcome is a wonderful marriage of harmonious and clean lined design combined with subtle textures, tones and finishes that delight the senses.

Delivery scheduled for June 2015.

ISA Yachts chose TEAM Italia I-Bridge for two Superyachts

ISA Yachts equipped the two motor yachts OKTO (66m) and Silver Wind (44m) with the I-Bridge technology by TEAM Italia.

The concepts on which TEAM Italia’s I-Bridge® integration is based involve careful selection of the navigation sensors. They are studied in depth, their use is determined, provision is made for them on the console and they are integrated into the system. Management of the different subsystems is made easier by the exclusive Multicontrol system, designed and produced by TEAM Italia, which makes it possible to control various different apparatuses by means of a functioning logic and standardised HMI interface.

The integrated subsystems include Radar, Chartplotter, Nav Data Conning, Engine Data Conning, Monitoring, CCTV, WHC and other navigation devices. The heart of the I-Bridge® system consists of a series of processors which all operate differently, thus ensuring a very high level of redundancy and consequently safety and reliability. Moreover, the selection system, which can be activated through Multicontrol, operates in a context-sensitive manner. A range of different scenarios for managing data and information in the most appropriate way according to sailing conditions can be selected from a configurable menu. This architecture allows users to achieve extremely high levels of on-board safety and bridge management.


Developed through the consolidated working relationship between TEAM Italia and ISA Yachts, this project contains a number of carefully thought through technological innovations. Thanks to its in-house R&D and Project & Design teams, TEAM Italia has developed the integrated system by carefully examining both the Owner’s requests and those of the Captain. Besides the countless technical issues which were carefully assessed, the ergonomics, elegance and exclusive features of the dashboard console were also screened, whilst still giving primary importance to safety.

The I-Bridge system installed on ISA 66 GRANTURISMO comprises all the very latest upgrades developed by TEAM Italia’s R&D team. Moreover, the versatility of I-Bridge® technology has enabled the Owner and Shipyard to determine the final layout of the dashboard according to the former’s wishes whilst at the same time enabling the Captain to customise the criterion concerning the conduct of the yacht according to his professional requirements. The end product, is unique in its kind as it responds to customised logic and criteria in both aesthetic and functional terms. In the future, it will be possible to upgrade the system installed without the need for any structural alterations to be made to the bridge console.

The console - featuring a shield layout, assembles 5 23’’ displays and 4 23” touchscreen workstations laid out on lateral work surfaces. A multicontrol has been installed on one of the two driving seats, enabling the Captain to manage the functions available on the navigation systems.

Carbon fibre finishes were used to produce this console, the layout of which was devised, designed and engineered by TEAM Italia in association with the ISA Yachts technical office.

ISA Yachts 140’M/Y Silver Wind

Since the beginning of the project, 2 years ago, ISA 140’ project has involved a lot of TEAM Italia and TRANSAS R&D departments as well as the Technical Office of the Shipyard. For the first time two major players in the international marine electronic technology applications have created a unique team-work, developing new tailor-made solution and project.
Redoubled benefits for ISA Yachts and above all for the Owner who has been the main booster of this new concept.
The final product is a TEAM Italia I-Bridge® wheelhouse integrated with TRANSAS. The control system has been designed to create a dialogue between the two technologies at the highest of their functionalities. Moreover, TEAM Italia, has deeply managed the lay-out both on the aesthetical and functional points of view, studying the ergonomics and engineering the technical areas under console.

Just a glance at the wheelhouse, with its high level of finishing is enough to immediately understand the hi-tech nature of this high-performance megayacht.

Five monitors 24" Touch-Screen HD, one 28’’ Stretch and four 13" MMD HBB one of which dedicated to manage the Rolls-Royce Kamewa engine system, make the console incomparable both for the lay-out and above all for the functionalities offered.
TEAM Italia has also engineered and configured the fly-bridge in order to allow the complete efficiency and the management of all sensors and the subsystems already in the main bridge.
