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.
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.
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.
Built by renowned Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo, the luxury yacht NIRVANA is a contemporary vessel ideal for family and friends groups of up to eight people, with room for 10 on board during daytime cruising. Notable features of the SL76 model include the largest beach club for the size category, silent cruising and cutting-edge technology. At the time of writing, she is also the most recently-built motor yacht in the entire Greek charter fleet.
The main deck invites guests into a bright and comfortable climate-controlled environment with the salon laid out for cosy conversation between small groups. The forward galley seats eight guests around the breakfast bar while the talented on-board chef cooks up amazing feasts in the cutting-edge kitchen.
The outdoor areas offer the group an abundance of space to relax in the sunshine or shade while admiring the views of Kefalonia and Zakynthos in the Ionian Islands, or the picturesque towns at Mykonos and Santorini in the Cyclades Islands.
