Agora III, ISA 43m Alloy, touched water for the first time in Ancona. Both the interior and exterior design is by Luca Dini, with naval architecture by Francesco Rogantin. Agora III is entirely made of aluminium.
After the technical launch, the Agora III will undergo a long series of tests and trials at sea, and then leave for Japan, its final destination. Palumbo Superyachts currently has four other yachts, ranging from 80 metres to 26 metres in length, which are in the process of being completed and all of which are scheduled to be launched in 2019.
Agorà III has a semi-displacement hull, is 43 meters long, for a maximum beam of just over eight meters. In the engine room, it has two MTUs 12V2000 M96L with 1,920 hp each, which push it to a maximum speed of 19 knots, while the cruising speed is 18 knots. The range is also remarkable, with maximum efficiency at 12 knots, as it can cover 3,500 nautical miles. Among its features, there is also a maximum draft of only 2.3 meters, which makes it ideal for sailing in areas with shallow water.
The three-deck structure can accommodate up to 10 guests in 5 cabins: one owner suite, one VIP cabin and two more doubles. For the crew, composed of six members plus the captain, there are another 4 cabins.
