Austin Parker Yachts has launched production of the Ibiza 85, the shipyard’s flagship with its 27 metres in length. The design is by Fulvio De Simoni

THE IBIZA 85, WHOSE FIRST UNIT HAS ALREADY BEEN SOLD, is in an advanced stage of construction and close to launch. The long partnership with the Fulvio De Simoni Yacht Design studio, which signed the entire new line, has allowed us to create a boat that meets both the owner’s desires and the shipyard’s demands.
The lines selected for the design have given life to a streamlined, elegant and sporty style that does not reveal the large spaces employed for the cockpit, deckhouse and below deck. A 7-metre beam, combined with the boat’s 27 metres overall, have made it possible to obtain 5 independent cabins each equipped with a bathroom and shower, a large kitchen and accommodation for 3 crew members, completely separate and equipped with independent services.
The naval architecture studio Fulvio De Simoni Yacht Design supervised all aspects of the project, including the water lines, engineering, interior and exterior design.
The helm station has two pairs of seats, all separate, to accommodate the pilot, co-pilot and two guests in all comfort and safety. The propulsion is provided by two Man engines of 2,000 horsepower each and by the transmission system with number 15 Arneson surface propellers that will grant the boat an estimated cruising speed between 38 and 40 knots with a top speed of 45. The range is guaranteed by 6,000 litres of diesel fuel and by a water reserve of 1,500 litres. The accessories include two 27 kW generators, a Seakeeper 26 stabilizer, and an air conditioning system.
