A new catamaran brand has arrived in Australia and New Zealand. “A yacht designed to create a perfect blend of style and function,” is how Isara Yachts describes its Isara 45, 50 and 55 luxury catamarans.
The 50 was the first launched at the Annapolis Boat Show in 2012 where it won ‘Best Boat at Show’.
Isara have now launched in Australia and New Zealand through distributor Jon Harris of Southern Yachting. Jon, currently in the Australian Sailing Team as mainsheet trimmer in the Paralympic Sonar class, has cruised catamarans extensively in Australia’s east coast. Jon says “The 45 and 50s are in production and well priced. They can be delivered to owners anywhere in the world at no extra cost and are built to a high specification”.
Adding to the range comes is the Isara 55 which is nearing design completion and planned for delivery at the end of 2015.
The yachts are designed to CE Category A(Ocean) specifications. Technology includes advanced materials and processes including the combining of vacuum resin infusion with Kevlar, carbon fibre and vinylester resin, for both hull and deck. This gives an excellent build quality and helps owners to be assured of the highest possible resale value in the future.
The “innovative and creative team” behind Isara Yachts includes Cannes based Jean Jacques Coste, a naval architect known for creating 100’-200’ one-off multihulls.
All boats in the Isara range are what Jon Harris describes as “superyachts with two hulls”. Jon says “with standard features including Coppercoat anti-foul, electric frosting glass (curtains not required for privacy) and hybrid power that allows 2+ hours under battery alone, augmenting the Yanmar diesels.”
Each of the designs has a spacious aft deck, upper deck, cockpit and saloon offering more living space. This includes a galley fitted with full size fridges that can be located on the saloon deck or in the hull. Deck systems include Harken deck gear and a custom painted aluminium mast (or carbon option) with in boom or slab reefing, offers a fully battened square top main with a choice of foresails.
