Isla Yachts

Isla Yachts are Coming to America

Island Pilot is the exclusive representative for this exciting new line of custom yachts from Istanbul, Turkey. Know throughout the world for their fine craftsmen, Istanbul has been creating fine yachts for centuries, only recently being imported into the U.S.

With our exclusive contacts in Turkey, Island Pilot is able to design, engineer and fabricate CUSTOM yachts at competitive pricing to production, main-stream style cruisers. This means you can have a new yacht designed to your exact needs to fit your budget - no money is wasted on features you don’t want - this allows more features that you DO want in a personal, cruising yacht.

Below are some concept drawings to get you started. At the small end are 9.5 meter “pocket cruisers.” The one, a trawler-style, the other, an express, “down-east” style. These would be priced similarly to a typical production boat of similar size with the same amount of outfitting. The larger sizes will actually cost about the same as a well-maintained, 2 year-old brokerage yacht of similar size and outfitting - but this would be brand new with the latest in electronic and engine technology.


The Isla 9.5m is a semi-displacement, trawler yacht with a single diesel (standard). She will have similar performance to the “tug-style” yachts in her size range, but with the superior fit and finish only available from fine, European craftsmen.

If you’re looking for more speed, she can be fitted with a pair of diesel stern-drives or even 4-stroke outboard motors.


The Isla 9.5m Express has a planing hull for speeds exceeding 30 knots with cruising speeds up to 25 knots. She can be fitted with a hard-top (as shown) or with a soft, Navy-style top.


The 11m Express is the 9.5’s big sister - more room for cruising amenities - she can be fitted with either a large, single diesel or set of twins. The smaller Volvo Penta IPS drive system could also be installed. Similar performance to the 9.5m.


The 14m is a semi-displacement trawler with either a larger single diesel or a pair of twins. She has room for a sizable master stateroom, a good guest, two heads and plenty of storage.

Her fly bridge is accessible from the aft cockpit or the wheel house - depending on your style, the galley can be up in the wheel house or in the saloon.


For those seeking a real around-the-world capable trawler, the 26m fits the bill. With plenty of capacity for stores and fuel, her range will handle any of our world’s oceans. The interior is spacious enough to allow for plenty of customizing, making her that special home afloat for your extended cruising and living aboard.
