Admiral Tecnomar lays keels for two new motor yachts

The Admiral Tecnomar shipyard in Italy hosted two keel-laying ceremonies this week, beginning the construction of two new superyachts - an Admiral E Motion 52 and an Admiral E Motion 55. The ceremony took place at their rejuvenated yard in Marina di Carrara.

The yachts in build are part of Admiral's aluminium full-displacement E Motion Series, designed by Dobroserdov Design in cooperation with the Admiral in-house Centro Stile. The delivery of both yachts has been scheduled for summer 2016.

Both the yachts will feature a hybrid propulsion system, which will also deliver a trans-Atlantic range, as well as a touch-and-go helipads located forward on the main deck.

The Admiral E Motion 55 has a Gross Tonnage of 850 GRT and she will deliver a maximum speed of 17 knots. The Admiral E Motion 52 features a gross tonnage of 499 GRT and thanks to the 4 MAN engines configuration and the hybrid system, is able to deliver a maximum speed of 25 knots. For both yachts, the type of propulsion allows a significant decrease in fuel consumption (only 70 litres per hour when under electrical mode at a speed of 12 knots).

As the ancient seafaring tradition demands, a golden pound, which was given to each owner by the yard during the ceremony as a good luck token, has been welded into the keel of both superyachts.
