First announced earlier this year, the 77.7-metre yacht Blue Marlin is taking shape ahead of her 2023 delivery date. Now with her keel laid at the Italian shipyard Admiral, the new-build project is the design work of Sinot Yacht Architecture and Design and is being supervised by owner's representative Imperial.Blue Marlin has been designed with an innovative diesel-electric propulsion system and a refined and pure exterior line that flows from bow to stern in a ribbon movement. On board, guests will find a 6-metre swimming pool, luxury spa, dive area, gym and a touch-and-go helipad. Accommodation is set to come in the form of six cabins, including a master suite on the main deck in the bow, VIP suites on the bridge deck next to the full-beam living area and four guest cabins on the lower deck.Photo: The Italian Sea Group“Blue Marlin represents the consolidation of our relationship with Imperial," commented Giuseppe Taranto, Vice Chairman at The Italian Sea Group. "With this new built, we are strengthening our position in the division of megayachts from 60 meters up to 90 meters demonstrating our full commitment in becoming one of the key players of this specific nautical segment,” he adds.
"This keel laying ceremony is a step forward for Imperial and our collaboration with Admiral and The Italian Sea Group," says Julia Stewart, Director of Imperial. "We are delighted to get Sinot at the design to create alongside us a truly remarkable superyacht that will raise up the level in the 75-80m range".
