On 1 April, Admiral, of The Italian Sea Group, launched its latest project, 50m M/Y Ouranos. Her launch swiftly follows that of 55m M/Y Quinta Essentia, the yard’s first launch of the year.

Ouranos has a full displacement steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. She has been commissioned for a repeat client and has been described by the Italian yard as showcasing ‘a perfect balance between traditional and innovative lines’. The interior was designed by Gian Marco Campanino alongside Admiral Centro Stile.

Ouranos’ interior expresses a design that is contemporary and state-of-the-art”, explains a Gian Marco Campanino representative. "'Less is more’ is still very current. Without sacrificing high-end finishes, the yacht establishes a new type of luxury that is based on purity and linearity. The sophisticated atmosphere and subtle colour shades make for a comfortable and luxurious interior. She represents a modern elegance, without being too glitzy.”

50m Ouranos

There are two salons, one on the main deck and one on the upper deck, of which the latter is full-beam and features a cinema corner and a bar. The accommodation comprises six staterooms and sleeps 14 guests. The en-suite master is forward on the main deck and features a walk-in wardrobe. The lower deck has three double guest cabins and two twins (with a sliding bed feature to make them doubles if necessary) with Pullman beds.

Other notable design features include a beach club that incorporates a massage corner, a gym and a day head; a glass and steel elevator connecting all three decks, and; a Jacuzzi with an array of sunbeds on the sun deck.

Ouranos will be cruising the Mediterranean in the summer and will feature at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show. She will subsequently cross the Atlantic and spend the winter in the Caribbean. She will be available for charter.

On the back of a delivery-less 2015, things are picking up for The Italian Sea Group. The group signed a new 63m project on 30 March and has two more yachts scheduled for a 2016 delivery, which, upon completion will take its tally to four for the year.
