The Italian Sea Group and Giorgio Armani present the new 72m megayacht
We are pleased to announce that The Italian Sea Group and Giorgio Armani will unveil the 72m megayacht Admiral during an exclusive private event to be held at the Marina di Carrara Headquarters on the evening of Saturday 11 February. The project, begun in 2020 and developed by Giorgio Armani and his team in collaboration with the Admiral Style Center, interprets and blends the DNA of the two brands to create a unique and avant-garde megayacht, the result of the encounter between the excellence of the nautical world and that of fashion.
This yacht is the first of two designed entirely by Giorgio Armani, whose unmistakable style is immediately recognizable both in the external lines and in the refined interiors. Timeless minimalism, which has always belonged to the designer’s creative philosophy, redefines the very essence of the concept of high-level megayachts in a radical and elegant way, based on the principles of essentiality and sophistication. The exterior design, characterized by a clear architectural imprint, is rigorous and captivating at the same time: large, clear-cut geometric volumes merge with other more curvilinear and soft ones, in perfect balance, and the whole appears imposing but dynamic. Thanks to the large full-height glazed openings, the effect, inside, is a seamless immersion in the light and in the surrounding environment, which can be modulated thanks to a skilful play of sliding panels.
The Armani/Casa interiors amplify Giorgio Armani’s aesthetic philosophy, characterized by discreet and refined luxury and whispered shades. The décor is decisive but relaxed, the general harmony is given by the set of elements skilfully merged into an unquestionably exclusive unicum. The apparent minimalism finds its counterpoint in the use of precious and refined materials, fine finishes of artisan origin and in the skilful mix of soft or vibrant colours.
“This megayacht, the result of an exciting partnership of which I am extremely proud, represents further confirmation of our ability to compete in unique and increasingly ambitious projects with excellent “Made in Italy” brands, with which we share the same values - comments Giovanni Costantino, Founder & CEO of The Italian Sea Group – Giorgio Armani is synonymous with timeless elegance and sophistication and his stylistic vision has helped to further enhance our aesthetic sensibility.This new yacht is projected to be a stylistic reference in its positioning also on the basis of the innumerable comments and considerations received from the various operators in the sector. Our business model is therefore confirmed, oriented towards the customization of every detail to make each of our works absolutely unique in harmony with the vision and desire of each owner”.
“The sea and design are two of my great passions. With this new collaboration, I have extended my idea of furniture to the nautical world, in which, as in fashion, aesthetics and function go hand in hand, uniting in a natural and elegant style. A very stimulating project that has allowed me to create customized environments with Armani/Casa, such as bespoke suits, with the same artisan care in the choice of materials and workmanship”, says Giorgio Armani, President and Sole Director of the Armani Group.
The yacht will be delivered in early 2024.
