As the second new-build sale above 70 metres for IYC and Admiral this year (following the sale of the 72-metre project Metamorphosis in June), this marks the companies’ eighth collaboration since 2010.
Global Managing Partner at IYC, Michel Chryssicopoulos, commented: “We are very excited to start one more innovative project with Admiral. The shipyard’s management has demonstrated their passion and their constant striving to improve and innovate. The owner and the build team have full confidence in Admiral and are very much looking forward to a fruitful collaboration”.
“Project Visionary represents a further step forward in becoming a key player in the segment of megayachts from 60 up to 90 metres”, explained Giuseppe Taranto, Vice Chairman of The Italian Sea Group. “Our relationship with IYC is now fully consolidated and we are both oriented to achieve the best results in terms of owner’s satisfaction, shared values, performances and market disruption”.
At present, details remain scarce about this fully-custom superyacht, whose delivery is slated for the end of 2024. In other news, the Marina di Carrara-based shipyard has also announced plans to expand its dry dock facilities, thus significantly increasing its production capabilities.
