Italian Sea Group to roll out three superyachts with further launches scheduled


The Italian Sea Group will launch three of the four superyachts scheduled for 2016 and further six yachts currently under construction, ranging from 40 to 75-metres.

The first launch of the year was scheduled for yesterday (24 March) with the first E Motion 55-metre hybrid yacht called Quinta Essentia. The superyacht features an exterior design that has paid homage to the shipyard’s Admiral brand, but with a new update, according to the company. Quinta Essentia is a hybrid propulsion yacht with a displacement hull, built in aluminum to decrease draft and weights. The vessel has been constructed to minimise fuel consumption, noise levels and vibration. The Italian Sea Group said that all of these considerations were taken into account at the early stage of the project.

Following this launch, there will be the unveiling of a 50-metre Admiral in the C-Force series with a displacement hull, and a construction in stainless steel and aluminium. The superyacht will come in at just under 500 gross tons (499 GRT) and features six double cabins.

The launch of the Admiral Impero 38-metre RPH will follow soon after, as the third hull to be launched by the shipyard. The yacht is built completely in aluminium, with a semi-displacement hull and it is able to reach a maximum speed of 20 knots it has two decks plus the raised helm position and also boasts one of the largest sundecks in her category, according to the company.

The last launch has been scheduled in September and it is a new custom build 39-metre aluminium superyacht with a semi-displacement hull, featuring two stern pods for propulsion.

Both Quinta Essentia and C-Force 50 will take pride of place at the Monaco Yacht Show in September. The Impero 38-metre RPH will be on display at the Cannes Yachting Festival, a few days before the Monaco show.

The group’s refit arm, NCA Refit, has also seen an increase in activity with several completed projects, including the the 88-metre Lürssen Quattroelle and the 77-metre Silver Fast Smeralda.
