Earlier this year, Admiral Sail—a division of the Italian Sea Group, which owns the shipyards Admiral and Tecnomar—introduced the Wave series of all-aluminum sailing yachts. Developed by the noted naval architect Philippe Briand, the Wave series will comprise yachts that range in length from 125 feet to 200 feet. Currently, the company has only released details about 125-foot version of the yacht, which is equipped with a carbon-fiber mast and furling boom.
Briand’s design features an especially wide beam that lends the yacht an abundance of deck space. The cockpit is protected by a hard top with a sliding Bimini element, as well as sliding glass side panels that can completely isolate it from the elements. At meal times, the cockpit can be converted into a dining area. Below deck, the boat is equipped with two guest rooms and an owner’s cabin, as well as a space that can be used for a salon, office, gym, or cinema, or converted into a third guest cabin. The owner’s cabin opens on to a large aft terrace with a protected sunbathing platform and access to the water. (admiralsail.it)
