In December the hull of the new Admiral 42 planning yacht arrived in Lavagna on a huge barge. Once it was unloaded, the hull was moved into the shipyard. The Admiral 42 was ordered by an European customer who wanted a motor yacht with clean and sleek lines.
Naval architecture of the project is done by the CNL technical division with exterior design by Luca Dini Design. The yacht is totally built of light aluminium alloy 5083. She is powered by two MTU 16V 4000 M90 diesel engines, each 3.650 hp to reach a max speed of 30,5 knots.
The yacht will be built under the regulations of the American Bureau of Shipping (“Maltese Cross A21 Yachting Service AMS”). Delivery is set for the summer of 2008, and for a while the yacht will be the Admiral flagship.
2008 will be a big year for CNL with the launch of 5 yachts : two 35-meter yachts , the 40-meter, the above mentioned 42-meter and the Admiral 44 with water jet propulsion. Also the first Admiral 50 meter displacement yacht will be launched in July of this year.
