The Italian Sea Group: Keel laid on 100m Hull 597


Admiral, The Italian Sea Group’s flagship brand, has laid the keel of Hull 597, its new 100m diesel-electric superyacht.

The yacht, which is due for delivery in 2025, is a design collaboration between Admiral, Imperial Yachts and Winch Design. Features onboard include a certified helicopter landing pad, swimming pool, spa, and multi-deck saloon.

“Today, we confirm our know-how and specific competences in the construction of giga-yachts with such innovation,” said Giovanni Costantino, The Italian Sea Group founder & CEO. “This project is a further confirmation of our presence in this segment, both for what concerns new builds and refits.”

Winch Design’s, director, Yachts & Aviation, Jim Dixon said: “The keel laying ceremony is always a special moment in the construction of a yacht, especially one of this size and stature, and signifies the culmination of a huge amount of hard work and successful preparation from both Winch Design and Admiral. Now beginning the next stage of her development, we are all excited to see this truly special yacht start to come to life.”

Admiral’s announcement comes in the wake of The Italian Sea Group making an offer for the troubled sailing yacht builder, Perini Navi. Last week the group reported it had made a €47m bid for the acquisition of the “entire corporate complex” of Perini following its bankruptcy in January of this year.
