FGI Yacht Group will oversee the project throughout its construction. Frank Grzeszczak Sr., head of Sales of the Americas for Admiral Yachts and President & Founder of FGI Yacht Group, commented in a statement:
"After an extensive 3 years of shipyard research and searching for a yacht builder to entrust with the creation of his dream yacht, this highly experienced American owner of multiple superyachts finally decided to build with The Italian Sea Group's Admiral."
Giuseppe Taranto, Vice Chairman and CCO of The Italian Sea Group, concurred, adding, “The sale of the new 82 metre Admiral marks our entry into the US large yacht market, consolidating TISG position as a key global player in the mega yacht sector.”
Project Skyfall will be equipped with five decks, six staterooms and accommodation for some 28 crew members. The inspiration behind the project is to offer an array of amenities in one sophisticated package, pushing the boundaries of its class without compromise on quality.
At 82m in length and with a beam of 13.3m, Project Skyfall will become the largest superyacht ever built by Admiral Yachts when she is constructed, topping 75m flagship KENSHO. Skyfall’s Galileo design has been penned by the Centro Stile of the Italian Sea Group, the highlights of which include an extraordinary underwater cinema lounge and three swimming pools.
The Italian Sea Group recently made headlines as it completed the acquisition of the historic Perini Navi brand and assets for 80 million euros. The group's entry into the US market comes as no surprise as one of the largest Italian shipbuilding conglomerates continues to go from strength to strength.
