To ensure the highest possible standards of construction, all the materials and equipment on-board have been selected from well-known manufacturers and all the employees involved were chosen for their excellent skills and craftsmanship. Based on the highest safety and quality standards, the yacht's design, materials, equipment and construction processes were surveyed and checked by RINA to achieve the highest-class notation. The IAG127' has also been designed to comply with the MCA L Y2 code for unrestricted navigation, the most important code for large yachts operating under charter.
The IAG127' is equipped with two Caterpillar C32 Acert main engines, each rated at 1800 bhp. Based on a tank test at half load, the yacht can achieve a top speed of 20 knots at maximum engine output, with a cruising speed of 17 knots. Furthermore, at an economical speed of 10 knots, the IAG127' can deliver a range of 3,500 nautical miles. Electrical power is supplied by two 90kw Northern Lights generators fitted to provide parallel operation. The 50 KVA SEA Electronics shore power converter also provides a parallel function with the generators for power transfer capability.
Special attention has been paid to noise and vibration reduction during the design, construction and outfitting.
The materials and technical solutions adopted are such that they confer the greatest comfort to guests on board and in addition, CMC Marine stabilizers with zero speed function have been installed.
In keeping with modern ideas, the style and the interiors have been designed by the Italian company YD&AS using a linear and sophisticated scheme, light being the guideline. Ample windows and clear colours give the impression of widening the spaces on all the decks.
Boarding the yacht from the stern, there is a large swim platform behind which is a big tender garage accessed by a hydraulic door that, when opened, reveals a space large enough for a Castoldi Jet 16 tender. A wide passerelle allows access to the main deck and the salon and dining area through a large crystal aft door. The light and the blue of the sea flow from the large windows all around but, by closing the remotely controlled curtains in the luxurious salon, the atmosphere can easily become more intimate to enjoy the high quality entertainment system provided by lAG. She features a comprehensive audiovisual system, including a central movie server that also supplies all the cabins.
Proceeding forward, a pantry leads to a well equipped galley completed in bamboo veneer and finished in stainless steel. On the right, the lobby provides access to the owner's stateroom forward, to the guest area on the lower deck and to the upper deck. The owner's full-beam apartment is astonishingly wide, and benefits from having two distinctive ceiling windows. On the upper deck, the salon is comfortably arranged in the wide area aft, while the forward part is dedicated to the fully equipped wheelhouse, luxuriously finished in leather.
The incredibly spacious sun-deck, is devoted to unwinding and enjoying life to the full-a Jacuzzi, sun pads, bar, sofas and a large table for al-fresco dining complete the relaxation area.
The presentation of the IAG127' to the European and American markets at the boat shows was an unmitigated success-both professional operators and private clients alike appreciated the style and the characteristics, confirming a real interest in this new "Italian style yacht coming from China".
