Italian Sea Group launches 75-metre Admiral superyacht KENSHŌ

Admiral Yachts, part of the Italian Sea Group, has launched its 75m/246ft flagship vessel, luxury yacht KENSHŌ, at the shipyard on Wednesday the 17th of November.

Luxury superyacht KENSHO by Admiral Yachts

Constructed with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, M/Y KENSHŌ replaces the previous Admiral flagship PLANET NINE by 1.8m/5.11ft. Azure Yacht Design and Naval Architecture produced the naval architecture and exterior and interior styling for motor yacht KENSHŌ, which features a generous beach club swimming pool and a forward living area on the upper deck where the wheelhouse is traditionally located.

main saloon KENSHO

Natural materials form serene and harmonious social areas throughout by using the same wood types in the furniture as the surrounding wooden panelling, while flecked white furnishings are complemented by matching shades and varied textures in the ceiling, carpet and blinds. The floor-to-ceiling windows create a greater connection to the sea, and after dark the golden glow of recessed lights sets the scene for cosy conversations and film nights. Through the main salon, guests have access to the alfresco dining area on the bow of the main deck.

The accommodation sleeps a total of 16 guests over 8 en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite with a full beam of 13m/42.8ft and 7 further guest cabins. The professional crew of 20 will be accommodated over 12 cabins.

M/Y KENSHŌ is powered by a diesel-electric propulsion system that produces a maximum speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots with a transatlantic range of 4,350 nautical miles.

She will now undergo sea trials ahead of her delivery in 2022 before she becomes available to charter during the summer cruising season.

A first look into Tankoa Yachts’ dark and mysterious superyacht OLOKUN

Tankoa Yachts has released images of its latest S501 hull, the imposing all-aluminium luxury yacht OLOKUN.

M/Y OLOKUN is the third hull produced from the S501 platform and follows swiftly on from the success of the first hull, motor yacht VERTIGE, which was launched in 2017, and motor yacht BINTADOR, launched in 2019, to make the model the shipyard’s best-seller.

OLOKUN immediately distinguishes herself from her sister hulls by her stormy black hull accented minimally with a low silver superstructure. This sultry appearance required a different approach compared to light coloured hulls: Dark hulls have a tendency to overheat in the sunshine and to prevent this the shipyard used special awlgrip coatings that reduce the temperature of the hull by as much as 10°C.

Superyacht OLOKUN boasts exterior styling and a layout by renowned designer Francesco Paszkowski, while the refined interiors come from prolific design studio Casa Dio Miami|London. True to contemporary trends, the interiors use natural materials and colours for a serene and welcoming environment. The simple and clean lines are inspired by Japanese design, enhanced by top quality fabrics from prestigious Italian brand Loro Piana and unique bespoke furniture by Casa Dio Miami|London that was created just for the interiors of OLOKUN.

Brushed oak is used on the ceilings, walls and flooring in three different shades: Natural, Tokyo Black and Bitter Grey. Plush jute and wool carpeting from Loro Piana is found within the bedrooms, while the bathrooms are finished in Calcatta and black marquina marble trims and Compac high-tech quartz.

The Owner opted for several changes to the exteriors and interiors, namely the relocation of the formal dining room to the upper deck to dedicate the main deck aft to the main salon, the conversion of the side-loading tender garage in the stern to additional space for the beach club, a private office for the Master suite that can be converted into an extra cabin.

Similar to the previous S501 models, OLOKUN has fold-down terraces off the main salon and Master suite on the main deck forward as well as a sundeck Jacuzzi and bar, and a spa within the beach club on the lower deck.

Twin MTU 8V4000 M54 engines allow superyacht OLOKUN to travel at a top speed of 17.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots while an economical 10 knots grants a transatlantic range of 4,500 nautical miles.

Three more units of the S501 platform are currently under construction, two of which have been sold while the third is being built on speculation.

55m Lürssen luxury yacht Moon Sand delivered

Following her September debut at the Monaco Yacht Show 2021, luxury yacht MOON SAND (known as PROJECT 13800 during construction) has been successfully delivered to her Owner.

Lurssen motor yacht MOON SAND

The 55m/182ft motor yacht features naval architecture from the shipyard and was built to a design by Bannenberg & Rowell, who also produced her interiors. Superyacht MOON SAND is based on the classic 1973 motor yacht CARINTHIA VI, the first major yacht designed by Jon Bannenberg and integral in securing the reputation of Lürssen as a major shipyard.

In recent years the majority of builds from Lürssen have been mega yachts over 100m/328ft and luxury yacht MOON SAND will return the shipyard to the 55m-75m (180ft-246ft) size bracket. Although smaller than previous builds, M/Y MOON SAND is no less luxurious: She features ‘museum-quality interior furniture pieces’ and a ‘fearless use of colours and textures’.

Spacious and visually clean outdoor areas can be found across the decks, offering a swimming pool on the main deck aft, alfresco dining facilities on the upper deck and sun loungers on the sundeck.

Luxury yacht MOON SAND is sure to provide an exceptional home on the water for her Owner for many years to come.
