The design brief for the Friendship 75, ISABEL, called for the largest yacht that can easily be handled by owners and guests without the need for professional crew. ISABEL fulfills all expectations in elegant style, with a classic profile that turns heads in every port, a powerful rig that serves up exhilarating performance and a sail-plan that is engineered to be fully managed from the helm. She has two equal Owner/VIP staterooms offering Superyacht amenities and complete privacy, plus a third stateroom for additional guests or children while voyaging or for crew when in charter mode. On deck and below, the detailing aboard ISABEL is sublime, with broad expanses of clear teak decks, accented with bright varnished teak trim and an ergonomic cockpit layout that offers absolute comfort, protection and ease of sail handling underway and sumptuous relaxation & dining in port.

A key element of ISABEL’s classic appeal is the clear and uncluttered broad expanse of her teak decks, with flush mounted hatches for accessing storage, anchoring and deck gear. Her low profile pilothouse protects the cockpit with a full dodger and bimini with removable panels for all sides, to accommodate all weather situations. Her raised coach roof follows the sheer line and creates the exceptional headroom in her cabins fore and aft, while housing eight large stainless steel hatches to conduct light and abundant ventilation below decks.
Aft in the cockpit, the full-width helm seat allows easy access to all sail handling controls and unrestricted visibility of the sail-plan and horizon. Forward of the helm, two ‘L’ shaped settees offer comfortable seating for 6-8 guests underway, and custom varnished teak tables for dining.
ISABEL’s interior layout is crafted of raised and fielded, varnished teak panels with Edwardian styled finish details, masterfully crafted to create a sense living within a fine furniture environment. The same elegant simplicity of ISABEL’s classic exterior lines is carried through the interior layout, reinforced by the discipline of refusing to overfill the spaces aboard. The perception of open space is accentuated in all cabin spaces, from the exceptional height in the main salon with the full width forward pilothouse windows above, to the sophisticated use of hull port lights throughout the yacht to enhance her already exceptional beam width.
Forward of the cockpit, the low profile PILOTHOUSE, provides unobstructed 360 degree visibility from the dining area to port, a complete office/navigation station to starboard and the wet bar area aft to starboard. This area is very much a social extension of the protected cockpit, only three steps up and aft.
The pilothouse adjoins the MAIN SALON four steps below, the visual effect of which is none short of expansive, because of the large pilothouse windows above the staircase. The formal dining table is to starboard with seating for six, china and glassware storage forward and bookshelves above. To port there is a full settee outboard, cocktail table, easy chair and 37” LCD Sony Bravia w/HD tuner on the forward bulkhead. Craftsmanship abounds, from the inlaid marquetry in both salon tables to the fluted columns, beveled glass cabinets, scalloped stainless drawer pulls and custom machined stainless ‘fiddles’ to secure the bookshelves.
The MASTER STATEROOM is aft and full width of the yacht, with a king size berth on centerline, settees outboard port and starboard and an abundance of stowage in drawers, lockers and hanging lockers. Four hull ports and three opening hatches to the deck above provide plenty of natural light and ventilation. The head and stall shower are in separate compartments on opposite sides at the forward end of the stateroom.
The VIP GUEST STATEROOM is forward, with a King size centerline berth, couches port and starboard, drawer, locker and hanging locker stowage, hull port lights and large opening hatch to the forward coachroof. The features of this stateroom are very close to those of the Master, including the separate shower and head compartments, each with an opening hatch above.
The THIRD GUEST or CREW STATEROOM is amidships to starboard with two comfortable single berths, drawer and locker stowage, two hull ports and an ensuite head and stall shower.
The GALLEY is aft of the salon to port, with Silestone countertops, custom built refrigeration and freezer with holdover plates, gimbal propane stove, oven and extractor hood. The galley is detailed with all equipment for professional cooking aboard, with an abundance of cabinet and counter space.

Simply stated, ISABEL is a proper yacht in every sense of the term. Her elegant lines, bright varnish and teak decks, combined with her fine furniture interior, create a visual feast from all perspectives. Designed as an owner operated yacht, she delivers thoroughbred performance, effortlessly. She is equally well suited as a world voyaging family yacht, charter yacht or seasonal cruising yacht. Her 7’1” centerboard up draft allows her to visit ports unavailable to most yachts of her size. ISABEL has always been maintained by her build Captain, to the absolute highest yacht standards. She is available for inspection in southern New England, by appointment.
