55m Admiral S-Force Project Silver Star begins sea trials

26 May 2023 • Written by Katia Damborsky

The Italian Sea Group (TISG) has sent hull two in its 55-metre Admiral S-Force series out on sea trials from its Marina di Carrara facilities. Provisionally named Silver Star, the yacht's interior has been designed by Giorgio Armani and his team to create an "absolutely unique" interior, according to TISG founder and CEO Giovanni Costantino. 

The contract for the vessel was initially signed in 2021 by  Jean-Claude Carme of TWW Yachts, but the owner chose to upgrade to a larger size midway through construction and S-Force Silver Star is now listed for sale with a POA. Delivery of the vessel is expected within the next six weeks.

The new build is the sistership of the 55-metre Geco, a highly in-demand charter yacht launched in 2020. Both yachts share the same focus on al fresco living, with a large open beach club at the stern complete with a hydraulic staircase that extends below sea level and glass-fronted gunwales that protect from the elements. S-Force Silver Star also has a sundeck with a Jacuzzi and a touch-and-go helipad on the upper deck forward which can also be used for relaxing and soaking up the sun. 

The steel and aluminium vessel has a six-cabin layout comprising an owner's suite, VIP cabin and four guest cabins, plus complement for 11 crew members.

TISG has described the interior of the new Admiral yacht for sale as "very elegant and never excessive". Materials including ivory onyx, cornflower blue marble, and Venetian printed silk feature throughout, alongside touches of metal and champagne-coloured tamo wood. 

In a statement from TISG, the Group confirmed that RINA has also given the yacht Green Plus certification, "an additional voluntary notation issued by RINA based on environmental performance".

"This superyacht is the further result of the exciting partnership with Giorgio Armani of which I am extremely proud and is the confirmation of our ability to measure ourselves in unique projects with brands of excellence, "Made in Italy," with which we share the same values," continued Costantino. "Giorgio Armani is synonymous with timeless elegance and refinement and his stylistic vision contributes to further enhance our aesthetic sensibility and confirm our business model oriented to the customisation of every detail."

The launch comes at a busy time for TISG, with the relaunch of Perini Navi in full swing and the sale of the 88-metre Project Spyder finalised last month.
