After telling that its unveiling at FLIBS had triggered an unprecedented level of US interest in the yard's potential to build to 60m and above, an area which will now demand greater focus in light of this, ISA Yachts has officially released details of its new construction project, Route 66, named in honour of the famous legendary American highway crossing from Illinois to California.
The concept behind the vessel is to emphasise the outdoor experience of a yacht without compromising the space and comfort that the owner would expect from a steel and aluminum displacement yacht.

Developed from the 65m Granturismo platform, this full displacement yacht is a four-deck vessel with aluminum superstructure and steel hull which architectural structure providing what the yard describes as a 'strong contrast between the harmonious and curvaceous lines of the decks and the rigorous and diamond-like geometry of the transom and sundeck'.

The interior layout comprises five guest cabins alongside the master suite, accommodating 12 guests.The main deck salon opens into the cockpit area. The dining room, situated forward of the salon, totally maximises light from the floor to ceiling side bulkhead windows. The large beach club area can be turned into a spa, as the layout easily allows a sauna, a shower, a hammam.

The foredeck offers space for a helipad, with a hidden tender garage below, housing an 8m rescue tender and jet skis. The main tender garage is located starboard on the lower deck opposite he gym.

Powered by two CAT engines, this Andrea Vallicelli design can reach 18 knots and cruises at 16 knots. She is due to be delivered in spring 2017.
