Italy’s ISA Yachts has announced that construction of its new all-aluminium superyacht, the ISA Alloy 43, is full steam ahead at its shipyard in Ancona.

The new 43m semi-displacing yacht is the forerunner of a new range that will enhance the brand's offer, says ISA, while still keeping the typical, iconic features of the 33 units delivered by ISA Yachts as of today. Its sale was announced in September.

The construction of ISA Alloy 43 started with the assembly of the so called “third section”. This is the middle part of the lower deck and includes crew areas and guest cabins.  By the end of October craftsmen moved to the second section, consisting of the engine and technical rooms.

Now, both the fourth section (bow) and the first one (stern) are in construction and will be married to the centre ones. By the end of the year, the whole hull will be completed, up to the main deck. Starting in January, it will be time to join the superstructure.

Luca Dini designed both the interior and exterior of the yacht. The layout features a five-stateroom arrangement with on-deck master stateroom, large salon, dining room and an extra-large beach club allowing guests to be in close contact with the sea. A moving transom rotates back to reach the surface of the water.

The ISA Alloy 43 will be powered by two MTU engines of 2000hp each, enabling top speeds of 20kt and a cruising speed of 18kt. At 12kt, the range easily exceeds 3,500Nm.

It will be delivered to its owner in 2019.
