A Dream Team

Delivered in July 2022, Kenshō is the result of a collaboration between the Owner, who personally supervised the project, French design studio Jouin Manku, which designed the interior, and Azure Yacht Design, which, together with, developed the exteriors.

The technical challenges of the project were addressed with functional yet elegant solutions that have redefined the boundaries of space, distribution, and luxury, projecting the owner’s personal vision into a new idea of the sailing experience.

From the exteriors down to the interiors, the narrative is fluid and contemporary. Teak, Marble, Onyx, Silk, Wool, Bronze, and Glass make up a heterogeneous set of materials blended together for a poetic and sophisticated result.

Kenshō flows in green

Consistent with The Italian Sea Group’s increasingly sustainability-oriented values, Admiral Kenshō has an innovative diesel-electric propulsion system, with permanent magnet electric motors that provide high efficiency and strong power with limited volumes. The propulsion system has five variable-speed generators, all equipped with particle filter systems to optimize consumption at any speed and reduce emissions into the atmosphere.

The design has been developed with a focus on the environment in compliance with the Classification Authority’s voluntary “ECO” notation. The hull has also been made by minimizing resistance through the use of azimuth propulsion and retractable stabilization wings.
