The buyer in this deal was represented by Michel Chryssicopoulos of IYC, who commented “Admiral has matured in terms of client focus and has drastically increased its quality of build, positioning them as one of the leading yards in the superyacht industry. I strongly believe that this project will take the shipyard to yet another level. This project will reinvent traditional yacht design, hence project Metamorphosis.”
“Our shipyard is constantly growing both in terms of production and value” added Giuseppe Taranto, Vice Chairman of The Italian Sea Group. “Project Metamorphosis represents not only one of the biggest challenges faced so far but also the consolidation of our relationship with IYC, a partner of great synergies. With this new agreement, we are strengthening our position in the segment of megayachts from 60 meters up to 90 meters to demonstrate our full commitment to each owner’s needs and requests. Client’s support and satisfaction, teamwork and high-end performance are our key elements towards the achievement of a win-win result for everyone involved”.
