Monday, June 18th, at dusk, the new 32-meter Admiral, construction no. 115, was launched into the water. The christening ceremony, complete with the traditional breaking of the bottle and blessing by the priest, was attended by the ship’s owner and his family, the crew, CNL President Annamaria Jaselli Ceccarelli, Vice-president Laura Ceccarelli, General Director Francesco Ceccarelli, all of CNL management, and representatives from the technicians and skilled workers.
'It’s a moment of great pride,' declared Francesco Ceccarelli. 'Every time one of our vessels is lowered into the water, it is a great satisfaction for all of us who have laboured so passionately.'
Maurizio Magri, CNI Sale and Marketing Director, added, 'It is truly a time of great pride also because the Admiral 32 #115 is the first of four other vessels of 35, 32, 25, and 40 meters that will soon be launched. These are impressive figures for a yard that in only two years has doubled its production.'
The construction no 115 is a planning yacht 32 meters long, built from light aluminium alloy. It reaches a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots, thanks to two MTU 16V 2000 M93 engines, each with a potential 2,400 horsepower. Its V-shaped planning keel is the fruit of a collaboration between CNL and Studio Bacigalupo, while the rest of the structure was designed by Centro Stile CNL and Luca Dini.
The exterior lines are fully designed according to the shipyard’s traditions, but most innovative is the colour of the hull and superstructure: metallic bronze. This decidedly unusual choice is also reflected in the interiors, resulting from teaming CNL Interior Design Department and the owner’s architect, all of which plays on the contrast of light and shade.
The main deck includes a unique salon and dining area with the owner’s cabin at aft. The flooring is in dark-chocolate wengé, while the walls are lacquered in opaque white. In the owner’s cabin, wengé is found again in the bedside tables and the central cupboard while a central leather 'C' from the floor to the ceiling creates a decorative element. An elegant bathroom boasts wengé cabinetry and sinks of shiny curved nickel. The faucets are all in platinum.
The galley is found on the lower deck, connecting to the dining room through a dum-waiter. It separates the guest area, comprising one VIP and two twin cabins, all with wengé on the floors and wainscoting, and a wengé 'C'-shaped decorative element, from the crew area (with one captain’s and two twin cabins). The fly-bridge, which is also a secondary wheel bridge, is a spacious solarium with a sofa and lounge chairs. Garages are located in the stern and the prow, providing accommodation for jet skis and tender.
This is a unique vessel expressing the owner’s taste, in perfect harmony with the Admiral philosophy.
