ISA Yachts, part of Palumbo Superyachts, has revealed two new luxury yachts for its Continental range: The CONTINENTAL 80 superyacht and CONTINENTAL 65 superyacht, both of which will be designed by Enrico Gobbi of Team for Design.
Both vessels are designed with a white hull and superstructure made from steel and aluminium respectively, and tinted windows provide guest privacy while creating dark bands in the exterior appearance which separate the decks. A raked bow and curving stern add dynamism to the CONTINENTAL 80 and CONTINENTAL 65, while a broad beam of 12m+/39ft+ creates a generous interior volume to be filled with guest amenities.
The 80 Continental
The 79.9m/262ft 80 CONTINENTAL was created with large windows sweeping the length of the hull to allow plenty of natural light to flood the interiors while side terraces allow for a closer connection with nature.
The on-board amenities include a main deck aft infinity pool that has a containment wall formed by two glass plates with water flowing in between them, a beach club with an outdoor bar and wall-mounted TV, a helipad on the foredeck, and a skylounge with a forward Jacuzzi and a gym.
The accommodation is designed for up to 12 guests over seven en-suite cabins, with the crew quarters providing for 19.
Designed for long-range and long-term cruising, she has an extensive range of 6,200 nautical miles using MTU 16V 4000 M63L engines, which give a top speed of 17 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.
The 65 Continental
The styling of the 65.5m/215ft 65 CONTINENTAL differs from the 80 CONTINENTAL in that is has a sleeker appearance, all with the same benefits of fold-down balconies off the beach club and the main deck formal dining room.
Among the amenities aboard the CONTINENTAL 65 is a beach club spa with a massage room, sauna and bar, a bridge deck swimming pool that has a waterfall and a sundeck Jacuzzi and entertaining space.
The accommodation provides for up to 12 guests over six en-suite cabins and a crew of 16. She has an excellent cruising range of 5,500 nautical miles at an economical 11 knots, and her twin MTU 12V 4000 M63 engines produce a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.
