ISA Yachts' Papi Du Papi has been sold by Fernando Nicholson of Camper & Nicholsons, and Marcello Maggi SARL. The 50m tri-deck motoryacht is the second hull from the three ISA 500 builds and was delivered in 2012. She was sold for a final asking price of $24 million – her original asking price when listed for sale in October 2015.
Papi Du Papi has a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure, designed by the ISA in-house team and naval architect Andrea Vallicelli, who has also done the exterior work for the other two ISA 500 yachts, Liberty and Belle Anna – all of which were delivered in 2011 and 2012.
50m Papi Du Papi
The contemporary interior styling is a product of Francesco Paszkowski and was designed for family cruising and entertaining guests in comfort and style. The ‘homely’ touch has been fashioned through the use of select designer furniture, fabrics, and finishes of Travertine and Jerusalem stone, grooved oak and flamed Brazilian rosewood. There are 68 yachts on the water today with a Paszowkski interior, of which 95.6% are Italian builds.
Papi Du Papi features an impressive double staircase running from the lower deck to the sun deck, with a large swimming pool platform that neatly provides access to the beach club. Other notable features are her panoramic sky lounge on the upper deck with a well-equipped home entertainment system and a sun deck that has a Jacuzzi, an al fresco dining area and sunbathing areas.
Papi Du Papi is the sixth largest motoryacht re-sale so far in 2016 by LOA and the fourth largest by final asking price (from those disclosed). She is the second biggest re-sale of the year with Camper & Nicholsons’ involvement, behind 57.5m Twizzle, which was sold for a final asking price of €39.75 million after sales broker Jim Wallace introduced the buyer.
