Imperial is proud to announce the signing of an exciting new project: a diesel–electric superyacht. Throughout the build process, we will collaborate with the Italian Sea Group – Admiral and Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design. Code named Project BLUE MARLIN, this thrilling 77m vessel is about to be a masterpiece in her range. In addition to acting as Broker, Imperial will continue as Owner’s Representative and Build Supervisor throughout the construction process.
The idea behind this project was to combine the elegance of the nautical tradition with the use of outstanding technologies. Thus, with eco-sustainability in mind, the superyacht will be equipped with an innovative diesel–electric propulsion system.
“BLUE MARLIN’s distinguished exterior exudes both excitement and refinement. The prepossessing sheer lines, flowing gracefully from bow to stern in a ribbon-like movement, is what define the future superyacht. The exterior as a whole emanates a blend of both dynamism and motion, whilst maintaining elegance.” says Paul Costerus, Partner at Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design & Lead designer for Project BLUE MARLIN for both exterior and interior designs. Moreover, the key highlight of the distinguished exterior is the abundance of space. A 6-metre-long pool, spa, dive area, gym and a helipad complete this brief overview. The vessel also includes a 6-cabin layout comprising of a master area on main deck forward, a VIP suite on bridge deck next to the full-beam living area, and four guest cabins on lower deck.
“With the remarkable reputation of Imperial and Sinot Design, we are confident in our ability to achieve the best possible results to the client’s satisfaction” says Giuseppe Taranto, the Italian Sea Group – Admiral Vice Chairman. “We followed a very flexible approach, as we are convinced that customising a product and attention to every detail is the key to a good relationship with an owner. Every yacht that leaves our yard is an expression of her owner’s essential being, character and preferences. Something that is able to highlight his personality, and we’re very proud of that fact.”
Julia Stewart, Imperial Director, says about Project BLUE MARLIN: “Ecological consideration and environment impact are now priorities for our clients. Having worked with us for several years now, they understand that yachting needs to evolve and follow a more ecological approach. We are proud to enhance the trend with the remarkable Project BLUE MARLIN. With Admiral as shipyard and the disruptive Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design teams alongside us, we will give life to a new-generation cutting-edge superyacht.”
Project BLUE MARLIN is set for delivery in 2023.
