ISA Debuts Superyacht Agora III: The sporty yet graceful superyacht Agora III is set to be the largest private yacht in Japan. Measuring 43 meters, Agora III, built by ISA Yachts, features an aluminum hull and superstructure with sleek lines to enhance the exterior and the work of interior designer Luca Dini.
The design is intended to emulate that of a luxury sports car, as penned by naval architect Francesco Rogantin. These stylistic elements can be seen in the large side arches connecting the cockpit to the superstructure to control the yacht’s air intake. They are also noticeable in the skylights in the owner’s suite, gull-wing doors on both sides of the wheelhouse, and in the prominent ventilation grills and side slits.
Agora III can accommodate the owner and as many as nine guests comfortably within five staterooms. There is also a full-beam owner’s suite on the main deck forward, furnished with a relaxation area, vanity space and roomy en-suite bathroom. An owner’s foyer provides access to a private office and dressing room. Guest quarters are located on the lower deck, with two large VIP cabins located aft, adjacent to two spacious single cabins with Pullman beds.
The polished interior style is personalized with woods, silks and precious stones. Dark wood is used in a large columned cupboard divider separating the dining and lounge areas, which are both adorned with natural stones throughout.
Dini has refined the layout of the superyacht to integrate multi-use entertainment areas. The upper-deck private saloon can transform into a cinema area with a retractable television, and the full-width aft window can open onto the large private cockpit that is furnished for sunbathing, dining and relaxing.
There are ample balconies for guests, including a large lower-deck beach club and balcony on the sea that is created once the transom door is folded down. Other balconies are located on the main deck, folding out to give guests additional seating areas.
Agora III is powered by twin 2,000hp MTUs, with a top speed of 20 knots or a cruising speed of 18 knots. Up to 3,500 nautical miles can be covered at 12 knots, with the ability to reduce vibration and noise per the owner’s request.
