WORK IN PROGRESS | ISA 45 GT
By Mary Hegarty and Désirée Sormani
The ISA 45 GT ushers in a whole new era for the legendary GT sports yacht line. Designed by Enrico Gobbi for ISA Yachts, the gorgeous model melds performance and luxury in an ultra-sporty, ultra-dynamic package. The signature large arch connecting the aft deck and cockpit is now enriched by an air intake detail clearly inspired by sports car design in a reference to the GT of its moniker. The superstructure has the pulled-back look of big, sleek sports coupe too. But despite its slender silhouette, it has a surprisingly spacious interior arrangement in which eight guests are accommodated in four double cabins in addition to a full-beam master suite with an enclosed balcony and private access to the forward sunning area. Gobbi’s trademark swathes of glazing mark out the profile and yield floor-to-ceiling views from both saloon and master suite. The exterior offers a choice of configurations, not least a large seating area in the main deck cockpit and a relaxation area on the upper deck together with an al fresco dining area and bar. The fly is provides yet another sunning area complete with panoramic views. Specially designed lighting details also ensure that the ISA 45 GT is instantly recognisable even at night.
