ADMIRAL GECO’S LAUNCH, THE NEW 55 METER MEGAYACHT
Marina di Carrara, 4 June 2020. Geco was launched today, the new 55-meter megayacht charter of the Admiral fleet, the flagship brand of The Italian Sea Group, one of the largest conglomerate groups in international yachting for construction and refit of motoryachts and ships up to 140 metres.
Geco, an expression of Italian creativity recognized all over the world, with an extremely captivating and innovative design, is completely developed internally in collaboration with the Group’s Art Director, the Architect Gian Marco Campanino.
With her 55 meters, Geco is an authentic Made-in-Italy masterpiece of shapes, lines and innovative solutions: from the striking style of the bow to the revolutionary stern design which hosts, for the first time on this type of yacht, a “beach club” area which features high glass side walls designed to offer protection on windy days and a large sunbathing platform served by an ultra-modern staircase to facilitate access to the sea.
The exterior design is fluid, bright and sinuous: the lines dynamically flow between the tops and emphasize the rigorously hand-made details. The chromatic scheme, refined and sophisticated, follows and emphasizes the curves of the hull and the superstructure emphasizing the elegance of the exterior, decisive and rigorous.
The external areas of Geco, in perfect harmony with the design of the new megayacht, are characterized by the presence of important sculptural elements such as the bar counter, the sunbathing areas and the stainless steel stairs that connect the different decks.
The upper deck, of extraordinary beauty and functionality, sees the external-internal areas connected by a sliding glass door which eliminates the separation between the upper hall, the external hall and the dining area; the bar area is also designed without interruption between internal and external environments and the continuous dialogue between the spaces is represented by a long counter dedicated to wine tasting and cocktail service.
Another peculiarity of Geco is the heliport positioned in the front of the yacht which delicately overlooks the shape of the hull and presents a lounge area for unforgettable evenings in the open air. The sun deck features a Jacuzzi tub and an equipped gym area.
The refined and striking interiors reveal a “super glamorous” atmosphere that sees a timeless French allure mixed with more contemporary Italian design. French wooden boiserie, precious Italian marbles, bronzed metal details and leather walls create a decidedly sophisticated environment with an international flavor. The materials, from wengé wood, natural oak and golden Calacatta marble, give a unique feeling of elegance, in perfect balance between exclusive luxury and craftsmanship.
