Few yachts flaunt such a powerful profile, melding authority with style in a faceted vertical bow and chiseled hull. Fewer still can offer the deep solace of such quiet ocean passage, with the most impressive qualifications ever awarded by Registro Italiano Navale. RINA testing found Admiral Tecnomar’s Impero line 40m Cacos V to be the quietest ever recorded since the group began performing certifications in 1861.
Just launched in 2013, the Cacos V is the first of many luxury yachts under construction by Admiral since it was tucked under the wing of Tecnomar in 2011. Cacos V’s aluminum and steel semi-displacement hull is not only quiet, but is also gifted with extremely low vibration, while delivering 479 GT volume in her sleek, spacious interiors.
The Cacos V cuts an impressive figure, and does so with reassuring silence, but she also has garnered attention as the first Green Plus yacht certified by RINA. LED lighting in the saloon and main deck foyer, enhanced by natural light from full height windows in the dining area and saloon, earn Cacos V environmental points heretofore unheard of in a luxury yacht of this stature.
Comforted by the sophistication of Luca Dina design throughout the interiors, guests will find silk carpets, leathers, polished Makassar, and dark oak, amid pure whites, warm greys, and brilliant metallic accents. Extensive exposure to large format art headboards in all five guest cabins, and fluid, strategic sculptural pieces, continue to nurture the luxurious eye.
A sundeck with Jacuzzi, teak bar, and ample lounge area crowns the craft. The full beam owner’s cabin includes double bath plus executive office nestled near the bow. Separate walkways and 4 cabins dedicated to crew insure absolute privacy throughout.
Looking out over the horizon, guests will appreciate the oversize, reverse-slope wheelhouse windows and wide bridge decks, offering views unobstructed by reflection or structure. The experience of time spent on Cacos V is at once sublime, quiet, refined, and exhilarating, providing a most agreeable escape for those who are privileged to spend time on board.
