Ice-classed, heli-ready, and luxuriously appointed, the Italian Sea Group’s Admiral division is creating a luxurious new way to live aboard for long range voyages. Project 575, at 75 meters/246 feet, redefines the explorer style yacht with an innovative deck plan and some definitely posh extras, earning Lloyd’s Register EMEA ID ICE-CLASS status. The expected launch is scheduled for 2018.
Accommodating 12 guests in six cabins, Project 575’s main deck is 300 square meters of luxurious owner’s pied-a-mer. The aft main deck owner’s cabin and lounge, with a second cabin in the bow, boast big windows and elegant, contemporary interiors. A theatre room with a 119″ screen is also on the main deck, sporting an exclusive guest access from the upper deck for privacy. The lower deck houses five guest cabin plus an owner’s staff cabin, all with direct beach club access, including a spa with terrace, overlooking the sea. On the upper deck, it is all about entertaining, as the guest area includes an observatory lounge in the bow offering panoramic views of the horizon.
Two elevators, one connecting crew spaces on the under lower deck with the upper deck galley, and one for guests, ensure effortless movement between decks. Two Rupert 32-foot twin diesel tenders are tucked into dedicated bays aft on the main deck. A helipad designed to accommodate an Agusta Grand with below deck hangar and refueling capacity also sports a cabin and office dedicated to the pilot.
Designed with a nod to classic design, but with an elegant contemporary hand, this stylish, powerful ice-classed yacht “is a great achievement in terms of technology,” according to Guiseppe Taranto, CEO and World Wide Sales Director for the group. Constructed with a steel hull, aluminum superstructure, teak decks, and emphasis on a comfortable, luxurious, practical interior, the 575 does not have an assigned range as yet, but is expected to set a new benchmark for the long haul.
