Admiral has gone completely Zen with his new flagship.
The luxurious 246-foot superyacht, which launched in Italy on Wednesday, has been christened Kensho. This Japanese term comes from the Zen school of thought and essentially means “to see one’s (true) nature”. In other words, the ship was named after the enlightenment experience and aims to “create a new quality of life at sea,” according to the new owner.
Admiral, who is helmed by the Italian group Sea, called on Azure Yacht Design and Archivers Berlin for Kenshois exterior. Crafted from steel and aluminum, the four-story is characterized by clean lines and a classic silhouette. The interior, meanwhile, was designed by Jouin Manku and pays homage to nature. You can expect “smooth, organic shapes,” as well as an eclectic mix of natural materials including teak, marble, onyx, silk and wool. Of course, there is also a healthy dose of fine art.
At the heart of Kensho, the main living room can accommodate up to 16 people and a large TV for relaxing. From here you can access the front main deck equipped with an alfresco dining area and more seating. The upper deck, meanwhile, has a unique living space made possible thanks to the unconventional positioning of the wheelhouse. Elsewhere, there’s a sprawling beach club at the back that offers “mesmerizing views level with the ocean,” according to the admiral.
As for accommodation, Kensho sleeps up to 16 people in seven en-suite cabins and a full-width master suite. It can also accommodate 20 crew members in 12 additional cabins.
The superyacht certainly has a lot of spirit when it comes to propulsion too. Powered by a diesel-electric hybrid system, Kensho has a top speed of 15.4 knots and a cruising speed of 13.6 knots. It can also cover some 4,350 nautical miles at 12 knots.
“Thanks to Kensho, we proudly confirm our specific know-how and skills in building mega-yachts of such innovation and beauty, ”said Giovanni Costantino, Founder and CEO of Italian Sea Group, in a statement. declaration.
Kensho will be available for rent with Y.CO in the summer of 2022. It seems like the perfect place to enjoy a moment of Zen.
