Imperial signs a 100m superyacht Project 597




Monaco, March 1st 2021 – Imperial is thrilled to announce the signature of a new outstanding project in collaboration with The Italian Sea Group – Admiral shipyard: Project 597.
At 100-metres in length, 597 is ready to implement new standards in her range with an impressive exterior and interior design created by Winch Design. Imperial will act as Owner’s Representative and Build Supervisor throughout the build process, with an expected delivery scheduled for 2025.


Project 597 marks the third collaboration between The Italian Sea Group – Admiral shipyard. Boasting an exterior and interior design from the Winch Design studio, Project 597 has been designed with the intention to find the perfect balance between high-end quality standards and high-tech solutions with particular attention to eco-sustainability thanks to her innovative diesel-electric propulsion system, powered by Azipods.

Even though Project 597 is still at her earliest stages with an expected delivery in 2025, all teams involved in her implementation are fully satisfied by the results achieved so far and are completely ready to take on future challenges to gain the best final outcome. She is set to become a new Italian jewel to add to the superyacht industry.

Julia Stewart, Imperial Director, states “Project 597 confirms the strong and undisputed position of Imperial as one of the major brokers of the superyacht industry. We would like, first of all, to thank our Client who put his trust in us to develop and confirm this outstanding project, and we are really looking forward to commencing! Partnering with esteemed professionals such as Admiral and Winch Design on this project, with their proven track records, is another proof of the reputation Imperial has gained throughout the past 15 years to create a certain idea of exigence, of dedication and of detailed achievements within our industry.”

“Imperial is now a consolidated partner of ours with whom we are capable to share know-how, values, and purposes.” says Giuseppe Taranto, The Italian Sea Group - Admiral Vice Chairman - “597 Project represents our concrete step as a world-wide key player in the gigayacht industry as well as a fine example of our production capabilities, being able to offer the most incredible client’s experience. We are now fully integrated in the 60 to 100 metre segment and, for sure, comparison with Northern-European Shipyards comes at ease in terms of efficiency, quality and performances, while we surpass them for flexibility in accomplishing the most demanding client’s requests”.

Jim Dixon, Director, Yachts & Aviation at Winch Design, comments: “Embarking on this project brings equal measures of pride and excitement for the Winch Design team, and follows a huge amount of hard work already achieved. It’s a privilege to be working with the esteemed Admiral Yachts on the build, and again with the management team at Imperial. Project 597 is incredibly dynamic and will be a landmark for the industry. We look forward to working closely with all those involved and can’t wait to see her develop!”

Project 597 has an expected delivery planned for 2025. Additional information will follow in the coming months.
