A few months after revealing its first-ever semi-custom series, The Italian Sea Group’s Admiral brand has laid the keel for hull number one. Equally significant, the Admiral Panorama 50-meter (164-footer) series already has hull number two under contract.
Featuring a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, the series falls beneath the 500-gross-ton limit, specifically 499 gross tons. It’s a striking switch from fully custom construction for Admiral, too. When The Italian Sea Group revealed the Panorama concept, Giovanni Costantino, the Group’s founder and CEO, revealed the series, he stressed, “Serial production will allow us to expand sales, avoiding the involvement of the group’s design skills committed to large custom-made yachts.” He added that construction would only begin on contract signing, too.
The client came into the project from Smart Yacht, a Monaco-based brokerage. Although the owner’s choices for general arrangement and décor aren’t public yet, generally speaking the Admiral Panorama 50-meter accommodates 12 guests. Interestingly, Piredda & Partners, the interior design firm behind the series, recommends four staterooms on the main deck. It also recommends a VIP below decks and the master suite on the upper deck. Wrap-around windows make the master suite light and bright as well, plus the suite has private alfresco space forward.
If the owner of the first Admiral Panorama 50-meter wants a smaller number of guests to come on voyages, the VIP stateroom can instead be a cozy cinema/TV lounge. It’s conveniently adjacent to a gym in the suggested general arrangement as well.
Furthermore, Piredda & Partners recommends using light-stained woods to draw more attention to the sense of space and volume aboard. In keeping with décor trends overall, it also recommends unhewn stone and metals for accents.
Delivery should be in about two years.
