The flagship brand of the Italian Sea Group, Admiral, announced the keel laying of Hull 597, a new 100-metre diesel-electric superyacht.

Hull 597 is fruit of a collaboration between industry giants Admiral, Imperial Yachts and Winch Design. She boasts elegant and sinuous lines, which provide the eye-candy which is backed up by engineering and performance excellence, thanks to highly technological contents and an innovative diesel-electric propulsion system.

The exterior profile is characterised by a play of structural lines that integrate in an absolutely innovative design. Standout features include a certified helicopter landing pad, huge swimming pool, enchanting Spa, multi-deck saloon, and typically opulent guest suites. Hull 597 promises to encapsulate the ultimate luxury yachting experience.

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

“We are excited to develop this project together with prestigious partners like Imperial Yachts and Winch Design,” added Giuseppe Taranto, Vice President of The Italian Sea Group. “This 100-metre motor yacht represents another successful achievement in our collaboration and strengthens Admiral’s positioning in this sector.”

Jim Dixon, Director of Yachts & Aviation at Winch Design, expressed his enthusiasm at seeing the 100m superyacht enter the next stage of her construction. “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,” said Mr Dixon. Now beginning the next stage of her development, we are all excited to see this truly special yacht start to come to life.”
