ISA Yachts started its operations in 2001, with the intention to unite two neighbouring shipyards situated in the industrial area of the Port of Ancona, in Italy.

In October 2006 the Yachting Investors Group (YIG), a private equity fund headquartered in London took over ISA Group in the measure of 80% of the company capital. Four managers (all investors in the company) detain 20%. 

After the acquisition the Company went through a successful reorganisation process in 2007, which involved:

• new organisational structure and management team additions

• product mix repositioning

• cost base re-structuring and improved supply chain

• operational efficiency 

• focus on customisation and after-sales service

The Company draws from its strong asset and capital base. A mid-term structured line has been granted by a pool of leading banks for ISA WC and refund guarantee needs.

Thanks to its achievements, ISA has formed a strong identity and good competitive edge. Design and first-class lines are one of ISA's greatest factors of success. The construction of a large-size yacht originates in innovation, and is no longer a matter of predefining shapes and sizes to fit in all the ship owner's needs, but of defining needs first and developing a project around a defined architecture.

In addition to production and marketing of megayachts, ISA's strategy also involves local territorial growth through the development of a network of closely meshed firms, each contributing its own culture and identity, though open to innovations in technology and computing: in other words, a networked district part of a worldwide organisation specialised in the design of large-size yachts.

In addition to the construction and marketing of mega yachts, ISA’s strategy also includes local territorial growth through the development of a network of closely wired companies, each contributing its unique culture and identity, through open innovations in technology and computing. 

ISA’s mission is to provide to its discerning clientele luxury yachts at the forefront of innovations in both technology and design.
