The Italian Sea Group Shipyard has announced the launch of the Admiral C Force 50 luxury motor yacht OURANOS, which, once delivered will be available for yacht charter in the Mediterranean. The launch ceremony has taken place on 1st April and represents the second launch of the year for the Italian shipyard Admiral Yachts.
OURANOS is being constructed for a repeat client and represents an outstanding vessel with striking modern lines and stunning interior. She is the perfect balance between tradition and innovation, between classic and marine lines, and modern and advanced design, not to mention the high specifications that she has been constructed to.
The full displacement vessel boasts a steel and aluminium construction with a maximum speed of 17 knots, which makes her one of the fastest displacement yachts of this size.
The Owner and his family are planning on using OURANOS privately, as well as make her available for yacht charters worldwide while starting with her charter availability in the Western and Eastern Mediterranean this summer. This is the reason why renowned technical surveyors and the crew have been involved throughout the entire construction process, in order to get a perfectly balanced yacht, from the technical point of view right through to the level of comfort offer on board.
The interiors are characterised by a new level of luxury, which is refined but not too lavish. OURANOS represents 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 entire interior design has been created by Arch. Gian Marco Campanino in collaboration with the Admiral Centro Stile, resulting in a pleasing mixture of natural leather and refined joinery throughout the yacht. OURANOS offers an interior with superbly reflects the desires and the expectations of a very demanding and highly experienced 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 hyper-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 colour shades make of this interiors something very cozy although definitely luxurious; precious materials and outstanding art pieces speak for themselves; without being a glitzy boat, she best represents the new ideal of elegance?.
The accommodation on board includes a vast Master Suite, located forward on the main deck, boasting a private office, a walk-in wardrobe, and a huge master bathroom. The entire suite is flooded with natural light thanks to the ten vertical and full height windows on both sides of the stateroom.
The lower deck, which is serviced by a glass and steel elevator, which also connects all of the three decks of OURANOS, boasts the rest of the guest accommodation, including three VIP staterooms and two twin cabins with sliding beds, convertible into doubles, with additional Pullman beds.
The common spaces include two large saloons: one located on the main deck and one on the upper deck. The main deck saloon, in addition to comfortable sofas and relaxation area, offers a dining area. The upper deck is spreading almost the entire beam of the yacht and boasts a cinema corner and a bar.
One of the most important design features of the yacht can be found 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. Perhaps the most iconic feature of the Admiral C Force 50 is her inviting the beach club, which provides in & out spaces to owners and charter guests; this is a completely 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 separated 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?s cabin which is located on the upper deck, just beside the wheelhouse, 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 double crew cabin find a place. The Admiral superyacht ?Ouranos? will be cruising the Mediterranean this summer, following which will be present at the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2016, just before crossing the Atlantic to spend the winter season in the Caribbean.
