Austin Parker Yachts announced the launch of the flagship Ibiza 85, the first unit sold. A welcome addition to a unique brand that already has 5 other stunning models
First presented unofficially a little less than a year ago, the Ibiza 85 with its 27 meters in length, has now launched and been delivered. The Ibiza 85 was built with sporting characteristics and designed in close collaboration with the renowned Fulvio De Simoni Yacht Design studio. What sets it apart from other yachts of this style is the emphasis on high quality and avant-garde design, which is evident in the smallest details and innovative solutions which have never been used before on a yacht of this size, and that is totally customized.
At first sight she presents herself with a sleek, elegant and sporty design lines without letting you imagine the enormous spaces that have been created in the cockpit, deckhouse above, and below deck. Another outstanding feature that goes against the current trend and is unique to this model, is that while other sports boats are dedicated exclusively to younger customers, the Ibiza 85, thanks to the technical solutions adopted on board, is also the ideal boat for more mature owners.
This is evidenced in the wide walkaround deck with safety rails, hydraulic swim platform to ensure ease of boarding after sea activities, and the fact that the cockpit and interior saloon are all on one level, making all entertaining areas easily accessible. Another striking feature is the possibility of enjoying and controlling the flow between the saloon and 15 meter cockpit. The saloon can be open to the cockpit, or closed like a sedan version simply by operating electric controls with hydraulic movement: 2 side windows and the large glass door at the stern close and protect the saloon, emerging from the ‘retractable’ position.
The cockpit is equipped with a sundeck, under which there is the hangar that houses the tender and other accessories; it also features a dining area with a central table that seats 10 comfortably. Under the streamlined hard-top, there are sofas and furniture equipped to serve the dining area that has refrigerators and freezers. This design feature ensures that you can enjoy entertaining in the cockpit area without having to go below deck to the galley.
The helm station, at the height of a yacht of this importance, has 2 pairs of seats, all independent, to accommodate the pilot, co-pilot and two guests in comfort and safety, taking into consideration the powerful performance that can be achieved. Entering from the cockpit you have a luxurious saloon with a 7 meters (23’) beam. The galley is sleek and modern and has the highest quality appliances. Below deck accommodations make you feel like you are in a Five Star hotel.
As a true sports motor yacht, the Ibiza 85 is equipped with 2 latest generation MAN engines of 2000 HP each and Arneson surface transmission group n°15 which give the boat a max speed of 40 knots; alternatively with 3 MAN 2000 HP engines each, the boat is accredited with a maximum speed of 47/48 knots. It has 6,000 liter (1,585 gallons) fuel tanks and a 1500 liter (400 gallons) water reserve, 2 generators Onan 27 kw, Seakeeper 26 stabilizer, air conditioning and the most sophisticated electronics.
