Tecnomar Yachts Begins Construction of 131-foot (40M) Impero Superyacht

Italian luxury yacht builder Tecnomar announced the commencement of construction to the first hull of the 131 foot (40-meter) Impero megayacht line. The signal was given when the keel of the new vessel was laid in a ceremony with the owner in attendance. As is the tradition in the yachting industry, a special ‘good-luck’ coin was placed in the keel to bring forth blessing and fortune in construction and the hope of good sailing for the vessel.The ceremony took place at Tecnomar’s shipyard in late October. Her construction will be in aluminum and built to a design by Luca Dini. She is destined to be noted under RINA’s Green Plus certification, a step forward in best environmental practices. An engine package of twin 1,920 horse power MTU 16V 2000 M94s are expected to power her to a top speed of 19-knots with a very comfortable cruising speed of 17 knots.

“This ceremony represents an important step forward in the company growth process started in 2009,” says Tecnomar president Giovanni Costantino. “We are the only shipyard which implemented and completed a massive reorganisation and industrialisation plan in just two years,” he says. “Our fleet today is made up of 21 new models, and recently four important sales have been finalized — this 40m (131-foot) yacht, a 45m (148-foot) Impero yacht, a 33m (108-foot) Regale yacht and the first sailing yacht, the Silent 76 Technosail.”

The Impero line marks a new concept where space, comfort, natural light and safety are combined with state-of-art design, performance and new technologies for environmental protection.

In other Technomar news, the shipyard has announced the acquisition of Admiral Yachts.  Established in 1966, Admiral Yachts has become one of the most prestigious and widely-recognized aluminum & steel yacht-builder, building megayachts ranging from 32 meters (105-feet) up to 54 meters (177-feet).

“The Admiral Yachts range completes the Tecnomar portfolio and creates synergies and new growth opportunities” says Giovanni Costantino, President and CEO of Tecnomar Group. “The acquisition expands our offer and presence in the marketplace as the Admiral brand preserved his great appeal in the world yachting industry despite the financial difficulties over the last three years”.

“We are proud of the acquisition” underlines Giovanni Costantino. “We are confident the whole Group will take advantage of new growth opportunities coming up in the industry currently under massive reorganization”.

The Tecnomar Group also announces the upcoming acquisition of a private dock with state-of-the-art facilities for superyacht maintenance and refitting.
