The Italian Sea Group reveals four new projects at Monaco Yacht Show

26 September 2023 • Written by Katia Damborsky

Italian yachting giant The Italian Sea Group (TISG) has opened the Monaco Yacht Show 2023 by revealing four new projects under its Tecnomar and Admiral brands. 

The largest and "most visionary" project is an 80-metre concept called Sea Flower, which sees Luca Dini and Studio Fuksas join forces to create the yacht's modern-looking profile. The project would be built under the Admiral brand and would include a number of futuristic features including glass-encased balconies that extend from the yacht's hull. Speaking at the press event, Massimiliano Fuksas said the yacht's design was inspired by movement, fluidity and the ability to change and adapt.

He also addressed his entrance into the yachting world, saying "Luca [and Giovanni] know yachts, they know how to build them. I have a yacht and it's comfortable, but the idea of that incredible design which a yacht may have astonished me. If we as architects are able to use these concepts like attention to detail, we can create beautiful objects".

The yard also revealed a 50-metre Admiral explorer yacht named Project Adventure, which TISG founder and CEO Giovanni Costantino called "unusual and innovative" in its design and expedition capacities. The yacht has a distinctive glass segment in the bow and a pod-style feature on the aft deck, giving it a completely different look and feel to Admiral's current explorer flagship, Planet Nine

 The final two additions to the fleet are under the Tecnomar brand. Project C-133 will be a 40-metre multihull under 500GT that will draw similarities to This Is It.  "We had such an important experience on the catamarans we have already produced and this is the reason we decided to carry on this line," explained Costantino. 

The other Tecnomar yacht in the works is the 47-metre Project T-Evo 155, which has been kept largely under wraps.

TISG also used the press conference to share more about the company, breaking down its €1B order book by segment. Tecnomar for Lamborghini makes up the largest portion of the order book, with 11 units on order.
