Owners seeking big megayachts might also be seeking big, bold designs. The Admiral Galileo series fulfills that, in styling and features. In addition, two particular designs, each exceeding 250 feet, can be brought to fruition within five years’ time.
Alex Banning, director of SuperYachtsMonaco, collaborated with Admiral Yachts (part of The Italian Sea Group) for these designs. Even though they’re concepts, they’re fully engineered. The idea was to tap into the more modern leisure leanings of today’s buyers. Simultaneously, the idea was to provide the inventive and creative styling that so often characterizes Italian yachts.
The series includes the Galileo 80, a 262-footer, and the Galileo 105 (above), a 345-footer. Of course, each megayacht is for owners to personalize. For starters, though, both can suit either private usage or charter. In addition, both feel voluminous inside, with more than eight feet (2.5 meters) of headroom. Full-height windows along the decks enhance that feeling, too. Surely, buyers of the Admiral Galileo 105 and 80 will want a spa to indulge in, along with a gym. (The same is true for charter guests.) To further pique your interest, Banning and Admiral Yachts’ in-house designers created a semi-submerged bar and observation room inside.
Due to their differing LOAs, though, the two megayachts also have features solely their own. For instance, the Admiral Galileo 105 will have staterooms for up to 34 guests. Therefore, she will comply with the Passenger Yacht Code. The 80, meanwhile, accommodates up to 14 for private use and 12 for charter. Given the acreage on her foredeck, the 105 situates a hot tub and sunning/lounging space fully forward, quite private. Though the 80 is smaller, she’s no less capable: She has a foredeck helipad, doubling as a party deck.
Parties and private enjoyment are yours onboard around the world. The Admiral Galileo yachts both should see a range of 6,000 nautical miles.
Upon contract, the yachts should take between 48 and 60 months to construct.
