The Admiral C Force 50 meter hits the water at The Italian Sea Group shipyard
It is clearly a busy period for Admiral Yachts and for The Italian Sea Group in general, as the second launch planned for this year took place on Friday 1st April.
Built for a repeat Client and christened ‘Ouranos’, the Admiral “C Force” 50 meter is finally on the water delivering a new and innovative “touch” in her range. She is an outstanding yacht and this is clear from the first second you see her.
The Admiral C Force 50 ‘Ouranos’ is just the perfect balance between tradition and innovation, between classic and marine lines, and modern and advanced design, not to talk about the high specifications she has been built to.
The yacht features a full displacement hull, with steel and aluminium construction, while delivering a maximum speed of 17 knots, which makes her one of the fastest displacement yachts of this size.
‘Ouranos’ will be used by the Owner and his family and offered for charter throughout the world. This is why renowned technical surveyors and the crew have been involved throughout the whole build process, in order to get a perfectly balance yacht, from the technical side to the level of comfort reached on board.
The interiors of the yacht really create a new way for luxury, never too lavish but very refined, a true home away from home, thought to be comfortable while the Owners’ family is on board, but also practical enough for the crew to work on board.
The whole interior has been designed by Arch. Gian Marco Campanino together with the Admiral Centro Stile, resulting in a pleasing mixture of natural leather and refined joinery throughout the yacht; an interior which perfectly reflects the requests and the expectations of very demanding and highly expert Owner.
Arch. Gian Marco Campanino comments about the interiors: “I guess that M/Y Ouranos interiors express the contemporary lifestyle state-of-the-art without being overcharged of iper-decoration; “Less is More” is still current. Without giving up high-end finishings, this yacht establishes a new luxury idea, made of purity and linearity; sophisticated atmospheres, subtle color shades make of this interiors something very cozy although definitely luxurious; precious materials and outstanding artpieces speak for themselves; without being a glitzy boat, she best represents the new ideal of elegance”.
The yacht is provided with a large master suite, placed forward on the main deck and completed by a private office, a walking wardrobe and a huge master bathroom. The whole ambience is flooded with natural light, also thanks to the ten vertical and full headroom windows on both sides of the cabin.
On the lower deck, served by a glass & steel elevator which connects all the three decks, five large guest cabins find place, three of which are VIPs, while the other two are twins with sliding beds (to make them doubles) and Pullman beds too.
The common spaces are further completed by two big salons, one on the main deck, where also the main dining area is located, and one on the upper deck, almost taking the full beam of the yacht and also featuring a cinema corner and a bar.
The main design feature of the yacht is actually within the two salons, as they are ‘virtually’ connected by continuous full headroom side windows which go from the main deck sideways up to the upper saloon ceilings, offering incredible sea views. This feature is further enhanced on the main deck, where, in order to increase the side view from the main deck, also the bulwark has been integrated with a large glass surface, in correspondence with the main saloon full headroom windows.
Probably the most iconic feature of the Admiral C Force 50 is certainly the beach club, which offers in & out spaces to owners and guests; this is a totally new concept to what is normally intended about beach clubs and it’s certainly the area which will be mostly used and enjoyed on board.
The very aft end of the yacht is indeed a tremendous open terrace on the sea, to be used both at anchor or when cruising and provided with an opening transom; the terrace is directly connected to the main deck cockpit through a dedicated staircase and it can be used as the main access to the yacht when the pontoon is low enough to do this.
The interior area of the beach club is actually the wellness club of the yacht, featuring a massage corner, a gym and a day head; this space is directly connected to the main saloon through a dedicated staircase and to the external terrace through a sliding watertight door. The beach club may be open and enlarged further thanks to the two side opening hullports, which create two other terraces on the sea and make the beach club area of the Admiral C Force 50 much bigger than on other yachts of similar and bigger size. All of this area is covered with natural teak.
The exterior spaces also include the main deck aft cockpit, which is a huge lounge area, plenty of sunbathing space; the main access to the yacht is from this cockpit, via a large pivoting passerelle which is concealed within the transom; the upper aft cockpit has been designed as the main exterior dining space, while the sun deck is the party area of the Admiral C Force 50 featuring a large Jacuzzi surrounded by sunbeds.
Under the large hard top there are also a big bar and another dining table; this area is further protected by retractable awning systems and by an opening wind screen, placed forward, which allows the guests to enjoy ‘al fresco’ dinners also during the windy nights. The crew has a separate access to the sundeck, thanks to a dedicated staircase which connects the upper pantry to the above deck.
Going down and forward on the upper deck, just in front of the wheelhouse, the very forward area of the yacht is all about tenders and toys, placed in dedicated tender bays and operated by two cranes; the tender bays are separate by a central corridor, which brings to the anchoring and towing area.
The crew quarter completes the yacht layout and, apart for the large captain cabins which is located on the upper deck, just besides the wheel house, everything is placed on the lower deck, with further four cabins and spacious crew mess; this area gives also the access to the under lower deck, which is a long corridor connecting the crew to the engine room and provided with laundry area and cold store space.
The engine room also features another access from the main deck huge sideways, through a dedicated staircase. Within this area the engine control room and a further crew double crew cabin find place.
The Admiral ‘Ouranos’ will be crusing the Med in summer and will be then displayed at the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2016, just before crossing the Atlantic to spend the winter in the Caribbean.
