About Hydro Tec 100m superyacht concept Crossbow to be built by ISA Yachts
100-metre superyacht concept Crossbow revealed by Italian studio Hydro Tec at the end of 2018 as their largest concept so far, has been now taken on by Italian shipyard and part of the Palumbo Group, ISA Yachts, according to Yacht Harbour.
From the moment on, the vessel will represent ISA Yachts Sport Coupé line and will be conceived of as the brand’s flagship.
Crossbow will be built of aluminium hull and superstructure within a beam of 12,5 metres, boasting arrow-like, sleek and sporty design. One of her key distinctive features is a draught of 3,5 meters that is very unusual for a yacht of her size. That will allow Crossbow easily reach even very shallow waters.
Her huge 135-square-metre beach club is another important design feature, along with infinity pool on the upper deck, Jacuzzi, cinema and piano lounge, a separate owner’s deck as well as helipad and spacious tender garage. The latter can play host to a couple of 9,5-metre tenders and four Jet Skis.
What is more, the yacht’s bow will easily transform into sunbathing and entertainment zone when at anchor. Meanwhile, the wheelhouse is unconventionally located at the uppermost deck, giving room on the main deck to a double-height atrium faced forward.
Crossbow’s accommodation capacity makes up to 16 guests within 8 doubles, while the lower deck is fitted to accommodate the staff of 32 members.
According to Hydro Tec, after the Monaco Yacht Show the studio has been facing a growing interest from the builders in the concepts inspired by Crossbow design. "After the Monaco Yacht Show this year we received even more interest to develop new designs based on the core principles of project Crossbow," they comment.
For the moment, the largest vessel built buy ISA Yachts remains 66,4-metre OKTO launched in 2014.
