Champagne isn’t just for christening yachts and superyachts. It’s one of the predominant decor colors aboard the new Silver Star yacht from the Admiral Yachts division of The Italian Sea Group. In fact, champagne is one of a few tones setting the superyacht’s sophisticated décor, from Armani Casa.
Similar to the yacht Geco, a launch from 2020, Silver Star is part of the S Force series from Admiral Yachts brand. She therefore has sinuous, sporty styling, from the yard’s own in-house team. She has three decks, too, in keeping with the S Force design. Naturally, the uppermost deck is a sundeck, while a beach club sits within the steel hull at the waterline.
Throughout the decks, several special areas stand out. For instance, glass-wall-like insets flank the open-air beach club. The design, from The Italian Sea Group, provides wind protection while still allowing owners and guests to enjoy an entirely alfresco setting. Overall, the beach club has abundant full-beam space for the full party of 12 to sun, go swimming, and more.
Speaking of glass, sliding-glass doors on the upper deck let the interior and outdoor areas flow continuously into each other. Although the shipyard hasn’t said whether the Silver Star yacht layout includes an alfresco dining area on this deck, it is a common, and likely, feature. Regardless, guests get to use a hot tub, with a custom design, on the sundeck. They also can arrive onboard in style via helicopter, thanks to a touch-and-go landing area forward on the upper deck.
Silver Star should truly shine inside, since the owners collaborated closely with Giorgio Armani’s Armani Casa division. (On a side note, The Italian Sea Group has a strong relationship with the designer, revealing the first of two superyachts developed together at a gala earlier this year.) Neutral colors set the backdrop aboard Silver Star, with still-soft colors, special finishes, and materials like metal, marble, and silk adding detail. These appear throughout the six staterooms, lounges, and other areas, along with the above-mentioned champagne “glow,” as the shipyard puts it. Specifically, that glow comes from a particular metal accent. A type of cool-toned Japanese maple wood called tamo creates a somewhat darker contrast, too.
Further noteworthy, the owners requested that Silver Star comply with the voluntary Green Plus classification of RINA. Dating back several years, Green Plus prioritizes lower impact on the environment. This includes strict emissions standards as well as other operational aspects that are tougher than the traditional international standards.
