The 75 metre Admiral motor yacht Kenshō has been delivered by the Italian Sea Group after launching in November last year. 

Built in steel and aluminium to a design by Azure Yacht Design and Naval Architecture, Kenshō is the new flagship of the Admiral fleet superseding its former flagship Planet Nine by 0.8 metres in length.

Kenshō combines the best concepts of residential design with those of yacht design, to create a brand-new lifestyle at sea," the owner said. French agency Jouin Manku was appointed to design the interior concept and layout. Key features includes a large beach club swimming pool that faces aft, giving guests “mesmerising views at the same level as the ocean”. Elsewhere, the unconventional positioning of the wheelhouse affords the upper deck with a unique living area forward.

The main saloon offers ample comfortable seating for up to 16 guests, flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows port and starboard, with a large TV screen and artwork forward. The area leads through to seating and an al fresco dining area on the forward main deck.

Accommodation is for 16 guests in eight cabins, comprising a full 13-metre beam master’s suite and seven en suite staterooms. Crew accommodation is for 20 in 12 cabins.

Kenshō is powered by a diesel-electric propulsion system which allows a top speed of 15.4 knots and a range of 4,350 nautical miles. She will be available to charter with Y.CO in the summer of 2022.

“This motor yacht represents another success and highlights our capability to create effective synergies with international professional partners," said Giuseppe Taranto, vice chairman and chief commercial officer of The Italian Sea Group. Working on such a masterpiece, so full of details and research, has been an amazing experience for all of us.”

Also under construction at The Italian Sea Group is a 100 metre hybrid superyacht known as Hull 597 which will replace Kenshō as the flagship once she launches in 2025.
