The Italian Sea Group Shipyard’s MY Flying Dragon proudly moved from land to water in early June, introducing the Admiral Regale 45 as a yacht with aspirations. Her all-aluminum, fast planing hull is hued a striking blue, emblazoned with a stylish dragon graphic that only hints of her prowess to please and pamper.
From a raised pilothouse, the captain deftly directs the yacht with an exceptional view of the horizon, leaving a spacious deck below to treat guests to a most accommodating main. With top speeds approaching 27 kts, this lightweight hull is expected to perform flawlessly as she ably covers long distances with her 44.8m/146ft silhouette.
A sumptuous salon, outfitted with dark woods and crème lacquered ceilings places light, luscious furnishings atop plush, light carpet. Rimmed with Tabu wood parquet in delicious chocolate brown, the look is a commanding one that is both stylish and comfortable, leading to a dramatic centerline dining area that seats 12.
Forward on the main finds a full beam owners’ cabin with astonishing views through expansive windows, enhanced by a 2m by 2m starboard balcony. The sumptuous light carpet is rimmed here with black St. Laurent marble, echoed in the ensuite baths with black marble basins, exquisite onyx tub and shower, and a steam bath between the paired, white onyx and glass dressing rooms.
Both the main and the cockpit have sun decks outfitted with elegant white onyx bars, lit with light, both top and front. The sun deck entices guests with a bubbling Jacuzzi tub and teak dining area for 12. Shelter overhead on the hard cover graces the deck with its own Tao Graphic. All outdoor areas are outfitted with tent covers, cleverly designed to be completely removable, undetected through removable poles, at guests’ discretion.
Two double VIP cabins and two twins, all with beautifully attended ensuite baths, continue the lush carpet outlined with an onyx perimeter. The crew area is set forward on the lower deck, sporting three doubles and a rewarding captain’s cabin, along with a main galley, mess, and laundry.
