This New 230-Foot Explorer Yacht Idea Has a Bonkers Observatory With 180-Diploma Views

Admiral wants to ensure seafarers never miss a thing on ocean expeditions.

The flagship brand of the Italian Sea Group just launched a new explorer yacht concept with extensive glazing on the hull and superstructure to maximize views. Christened simply Admiral Explorer 70M, the 230-footer exemplifies Made in Italy style and quality.

With a beam just shy of 43 feet, the newcomer has a substantial interior volume of 1,930 GT. The living quarters are spread across four decks and offer plenty of space for entertaining. The lower deck is dedicated to the crew, while the main deck caters to guests with two large cabins and two VIPs with en suites. The owner’s suite, which sits on its own separate deck, includes a large indoor-outdoor lounge and a cinema.

Billed as a “real jewel,” the explorer is full to the brim with top-tier amenities, too. Most notably, the bow area of the main deck features a luxurious observatory with 180-degree windows that provide seafarers with cinematic vistas.

The main deck pool, lounge, and helipad.


The main deck is also home to multiple lounges and dining areas, as well as a storage area for tenders and water toys. Speaking of which, the megayacht can carry a 33-foot limousine, a 33-foot inflatable tender, an 18-foot inflatable RIB, and three Jet Skis, no less. It is also equipped with a touch-and-go helipad that can double as another entertainment space if your chopper is in the sky.

Other highlights of the yacht include two pools (one forward, one aft), a plush foredeck lounge, a beach club with expanding platforms, and a glass-enclosed wellness area with epic panoramas. The bridge deck offers more views still, with a wheelhouse of more than 1,000 square feet overlooking all below.

As for grunt, the Admiral will be powered by twin Caterpillar engines that give it an estimated top speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots. The best part is that the go-anywhere cruiser has a sturdy hull that is suitable for short jaunts or far-flung expeditions.

Admiral has delivered 148 yachts since it was established in 1966. The Italian yard started off by launching a wooden 59-footer, but it now has a diverse fleet consisting of models from 164 feet to more than 328 feet. Admiral clearly hasn’t lost the ability to innovate, either.
