This is a unique opportunity to see the SuperYacht PRIMADONNA before her shipment to the USA, where she will be presented to the world during the next Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Florida.
The IAG 127 motor yacht Primadonna is a 40 m tri-deck motor yacht able to accommodate twelve guests while still boasting large salons and recreational spaces, quite incredible for a yacht of this size. Thanks to the clever design concept of the superyacht developed by IAG Yachts, the IAG127’ is flexible enough to allow easy customization to an individual owner’s requirements for their private use.

To ensure the highest possible standards of construction, all the materials and equipment on-board M/Y Primadonna have been selected from well-known manufacturers, and all the employees involved were chosen for their excellent skills and craftsmanship. Based on the highest safety and quality standards, the yacht’s design, materials, equipment and construction processes were surveyed and checked by RINA, for achieving the highest-class notation.
The IAG127 motor yacht PRIMADONNA is equipped with two Caterpillar C32 Acert main engines, each rated at 1800 bhp. Based on a tank test at half load, the yacht can achieve a top speed of 17 knots at maximum engine output, with a cruising speed of 14 knots. At an economical speed of 10 knots, the IAG127’ yacht Primadonna can deliver a range of 3,000 nautical miles. Electrical power is supplied by two 90kw Northern Lights generators fitted to provide parallel operation. The 50 KVA SEA Electronics shore power converter also provide a parallel function with the generators for power transfer capability.
Special attention has been paid to noise and vibration reduction during the design, construction and outfitting of the IAG 127 Primadonna. The materials and technical solutions adopted are such that they confer the greatest comfort to guests on board and in addition, CMC Marine stabilizers with zero speed function have been installed.
In keeping with modern ideas, the style and the interiors are designed by the Italian company YD&AS using a linear and sophisticate scheme, light being the guideline. Ample windows and clear colours enhance the feeling of wide spaces on all decks.
Boarding motor yacht Primadonna from the stern, there is a large swim platform behind which is a big garage accessed by a hydraulic door. A wide passerelle allows access the main deck and the salon and dining area through a large crystal aft door.

The light and the blue of the sea flow from Primadonna’s large windows all around but, by closing the remotely controlled curtains in the luxurious salon, the atmosphere can easily become more intimate to enjoy the high quality entertainment system provided by IAG. She features a comprehensive audiovisual system, including a central movie server that also supplies all the cabins.

Proceeding forward on M/Y Primadonna, a pantry leads to a well-equipped galley completed in bamboo veneer and finished in stainless steel. On the right the lobby provides access to the owner’s stateroom forward, to the guest area in the lower deck, and to the upper deck. The owner’s full-beam apartment is astonishingly wide, and benefits from having two distinctive ceiling windows. On the upper deck, the salon is comfortably arranged in the wide area aft, while the forward part is dedicated to the fully equipped wheelhouse, luxuriously finished in leather.

The incredibly spacious sun-deck of luxury yacht Primadonna is devoted to unwinding and enjoying life to the full: a Jacuzzi, sun pads, bar, sofas and a large table for al-fresco dining complete the relaxation area.
The presentation of the IAG127’ to the European and American markets at the boat shows was an unmitigated success: both professional operators and private clients alike appreciated the style and the characteristics, confirming a real interest in this new “Italian style yacht coming from China”.

About IAG YACHTS
IAG YACHTS was founded in 2005 by Michael and Bernard Chang. From the beginning, the goal was to create a modern shipyard that would build world-class luxury yachts, with the huge advantage of being located in China. The geographical position in Zhuhai, Southern China, close to Hong Kong and Macau, facilitates the import of equipment and technology from Europe and the USA, being easily accessible from everywhere on the Mainland or abroad.
The IAG Yachts shipyard is about 67,000 m2 in area, including a 6800 m2 fiberglass production shed, 7,100 m2 outfitting workshop and 7,600 m2 ancillary workshop, plus office buildings. A third construction shed is almost completed, to enable the construction of even bigger yachts in steel and aluminum.
The building is conceived and organized in a series of well-planned steps that include a major input from the owner in order to personalize the design. The fiberglass production is concentrated in a dedicated temperature and humidity controlled shed, while the interiors and furniture are fully prepared and assembled ashore. Complete mock-ups of all the decks are prepared in the wood workshop, in order to guarantee the level of quality and to maintain the strict schedules.
The company has gathered together the most experienced and skilled engineers, designers and craftsman, both locally and internationally, to form a team that can manage the total project from the initial conceptual stage through to the final delivery of the yacht to the client.
The IAG100’ motor yacht
Even as the construction of the fourth hull of the successful IAG127’ superyacht series is commencing, IAG Yachts is going on with its new model – the IAG100’ motor yacht
The IAG100’ motor yacht is the result of close cooperation between the shipyard’s technical office and the Italian companies YD&AS and REDS, well known and respected in the yacht design world. YD&AS, who previously designed the IAG127’ series, developed the design of this two-deck yacht with raised wheelhouse, and maintained a classic style in a modern context. REDS took care of the engineering, with great attention to performance and safety. The IAG100’, as with all the yachts produced by IAG Yachts, is constructed to the highest RINA class and is fully compliant with MCA rules for charter.
The vessel, 30 m LOA and with a beam of 6.5 m, accommodates eight passengers plus four crew on two decks sailing in full safety at a maximum speed of 30 kn, thanks to the two Caterpillar C32 Acert main engines. As with the IAG127’, all the materials and equipment installed on-board are from well known-brands, granting reliability and safety.
Inside, the huge salon benefits from panoramic windows and a superb sound-video system, and with the stylish the dining area in a separate room, enjoyment is assured. The outdoor of the IAG100’ superyacht is not less inviting, with the comfortable sun-deck, the sun pads in the fore-deck and the main deck-aft salon.
Definitively, motor yacht IAG100’ is built for yacht owners who appreciate true quality and the best things in life.
