The 75 metre Admiral motor yacht Kenshō has been launched at the Italian Sea Group shipyard in Italy. 

Built in steel and aluminium to a design by Azure Yacht Design and Naval Architecture, the vessel hit the waters for the first time at the yard’s Marina di Carrara facility on Wednesday. Kenshō is the new flagship of the Admiral fleet superseding its former flagship Planet Nine by 1.8 metres in length.

Speaking about the launch, The Italian Sea Group’s founder and chief executive officer Giovanni Constantino, said: “Working on this masterpiece has been a wonderful experience. Thanks to Kenshō, we can confirm our know-how and specific skills in building superyachts of great innovation and beauty.”

Key on board features include a large beach club swimming pool that faces aft, giving guests “mesmerizing 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.

Speaking at the launch, Kenshō’s owner said: “The yacht integrates the best ideas of both residential and yacht design to create a new quality of living at sea.”

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 comes for 16 guests in eight cabins, comprising of 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 metres and a range of 4,350 nautical miles. She will be available to charter with Y.CO in the summer of 2022.

The news comes after The Italian Sea Group laid the keel on its 100 metre hybrid superyacht known as Hull 597.
