Imperial Signs 77m Sinot Design Project Blue Marlin
Imperial has announced that it has signed a new diesel-electric superyacht in collaboration with The Admiral Yachts, a brand of The Italian Sea Group, and Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design. The 77m superyacht, given the code name Project Blue Marlin, is set to be a masterpiece in her range and will be delivered in 2023.
Imperial has acted as the Broker and will continue to its involvement in the project as Owner’s Representative and Build Supervisor throughout the construction of Project Blue Marlin. The 77m superyacht will be built at the Admiral shipyard and promises to provide a perfect balance between traditional elegance and an astute use of new technologies and materials. One notable aspect of her design is the innovative diesel-electric propulsion system.
Paul Costerus, Sinot Yachts’ lead designer on the project, explained the studio’s multifaceted approach to the exterior design. “Blue Marlin’s distinguished exterior exudes both excitement and refinement,” said Costerus. “Her look is defined by a prepossessing sheer line, flowing gracefully from bow to stern in a ribbon-like movement. The exterior as a whole emanates a blend of both dynamism and motion, whilst maintaining elegance.” There are abundant exterior paces available to guests to enjoy the outdoors, including a 6-metre pool, while the superyacht will also boat a Spa, Dive centre, Gym and Helipad.
“With the remarkable reputation of Imperial and Sinot Design we are sure to achieve the best possible results for client’s satisfaction,” said Giuseppe Taranto, Vice Chairman of The Italian Sea Group Admiral. “We took a very flexible approach as we are convinced that customising a product and the attention to every detail is the key to the relationship with an owner. Every yacht that comes out of 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.”
More than the bespoke design, Project Blue Marlin has incorporated features to make her a more sustainable yacht and ensure that she is future-proof, as Imperial Director Julia Stewart explains: “Ecological consideration and environment impact are now priorities of our clients. Being involved with us with several years now, they understood yachting needs to evolve and follow a greener attitude. We are proud to improve the trend with the remarkable Project Blue Marlin, with Admiral as shipyard and the disruptive Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design teams alongside us to give life to a cutting-edge superyacht of a new generation.”
With Project Blue Marlin set to begin construction ahead of her delivery in 2023, we very much look forward to following her progress and releasing more details as they come.
