42m Istros Listed for Sale
The team at Cecil Wright & Partners has become the Central Agent for the sale of the 42.10m Istros. This classic yacht built in 1954 for the Pappadakis family and relaunched in 2020 by Feadship is essentially a brand-new yacht. Feadship built a new aluminum superstructure, making it a complete replica of the original. All of her systems have been changed and upgraded with the most modern technologies available, including the engines. The original engines weighed 38 tonnes, 15% of the total displacement: replacing them with sustainable power sources meant adapting the superstructure and adding lead ballast. The new Istros is lighter than she was in 1954 and even more stable.Istros interior was made in Scandinavian style by Van Geest Design. More guest cabins were added and they have been enlarged. It also included a redesign of the main salon and galley.She won The World Superyacht Awards 2021 for Best Refit and is also a member of the highly cherished Feadship Heritage Fleet.Entering the charter market for the first time this year, she was unbelievably successful and a string of repeat charter is already on the cards for next year should a future custodian wish to keep her commercial.Shortly she will head back to Feadship for her final warranty work meaning that come the Spring of 2022, she will be a truly turn-key yacht and ready for the next phase of her life under a new owner.Istros' asking price is EUR 19,950,000.Feadship was formed as a group in 1949 as a marketing partnership between six Dutch shipyards, de Vries Lentch, Van de Stadt, Witsen & Vis, Akerboom, De Vries Scheepsbouw and Van Lent Shipyard, and De Voogt Naval Architects. Feadship is well-known as one of Netherlands’ most elite yacht builders and delivers superyachts from 50–100+ meters in length.Credits: Feadship
New 36m Chase Boat Phi Phantom Delivered by Alia Yachts
Alia Yachts has shared the first official photographs of the new 36m chase boat Phi Phantom, the vessel will follow its 58.5m mothership Phi around the globe carrying an array of toys and tenders. The yacht was built by the Turkish yard in aluminium and painted to match the mothership without a lick of filler. “The exterior styling of Phi Phantom has everything to do with her mothership Phi and at the same time she is really and literally a shadow of the longer beauty queen,” says exterior designer Cor D. Rover. “So, we simply looked at the design DNA that we gave mothership Phi, which consisted of a set of organically curved sheerlines, contrasting black and blue surfaces, and sharp edged and curved wing stations. As much as we were able to, given the constraints, we applied this DNA to Phi Phantom. Alia did a fantastic job in sculpting our ideas in aluminium without the forgiving help of filler material!”Phi Phantom has the same striking Stars & Stripes Blue paint, the swooping sheer, and similar stainless-steel grilles at the bow and on the superstructure, and the same dark glass panels. With a patented Fast Displacement XL® hull from Van Oossanen and twin Cat C-32 engines, Phi Phantom also boasts impressive performance. At her economical 11 knots cruising speed, she can manage an impressive range of over 6,000 nautical miles, but at full revs, she can reach 21 knots to match the slim, easily-driven hull of the mothership.“The extra length directly translates to extra deck space, which is the main purpose of a chase yacht and will add versatility, high fuel-efficiency and comfort. Because of this, Phi Phantom can easily be considered equal to chase yachts of much higher length and tonnage,” says Perry van Oossanen of Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Engineered to the nth degree to offer redundancy for every system, this is a boat that is designed to venture far off the beaten track and rely on its own resources. Key in its armoury of equipment is a very capable 9 m HS Marine crane for launching and retrieving the tenders and toys stored on the 150 sq. m open aft deck. Phi Phantom is designed to carry a 12.3 Spirit tender, 11m Axopar, jet skis, bikes and even a car. She will also be capable of bunkering fuel to extend the mothership’s range, and houses extra laundry facilities to boost capacity when there are lots of guests aboard. She can accommodate the three permanent crew across three cabins on board, and offer a slightly larger cabin with a desk to a guest or visitor, such as a guide. The interior is rounded off by a fine galley and a big crew mess. “We are so proud to see PHI Phantom floating.” said Gökhan Çelik, President of Alia Yachts. “The very engaged owner has worked with us every step of the way, giving us the support we needed to complete some very specific requests, including that requirement to use no filler on the hull. We wish Phi Phantom, her mothership and those who sail in them all the joys of the high seas.”Alia Yachts was founded in 2008 by Gokhan Çelik and Omer Koray. Located in the port of Antalya on the beautiful Turkish Riviera, Alia Yachts shipyard currently occupies approximately 8,000 m2, including three construction halls with their suites of specialist workshops and a dedicated interiors facility. With an additional 16,000 square meters under development for 2019, Alia Yachts will rank among the top facilities in the region.Credits: Alia Yachts/Charl van Rooy (RedCharlie Media)
