The Italian luxury yacht shipyard Admiral has announced that its C Force 50 metre superyacht, Ouranos has been launched, a week after the unveiling of their biggest craft, the Quinta Essentia. See the pictures here.

The steel and aluminium yacht has a maximum speed of 17 knots and features a full displacement hull. It was launched at The Italian Sea Group shipyard Marina di Carrara.

The interior is a mixture of natural leather and refined joinery and was designed by Gian Marco Campanino together with the Admiral Centro Stile.

“I guess that M/Y Ouranos interiors express the contemporary lifestyle state-of-the-art without being overcharged of iper-decoration; “Less is More” is still current,” says Campanino.

Guests are accommodated over several spacious staterooms, including the master suite on the main deck. This features a private office and walk-in wardrobe. The three decks are connected by a steel and glass lift.

The main design feature of the Ouranos, according to Admiral, is the two saloons on the main and upper decks. These are virtually connected by continuous full headroom side windows which go from the main deck sideways up to the upper saloon ceilings.

The beach club, which offers in and out spaces, is described as the most iconic feature of the C Force 50. The very aft end of the yacht is an open terrace on the sea. It can be used both at anchor or when cruising. Two side opening hullports means the beach club can be enlarged, creating two other terraces.

The exterior spaces also include the main deck aft cockpit. The upper aft cockpit has been designed as the main exterior dining space, while the sun deck is the party area. It features a large Jacuzzi surrounded by sunbeds.

Ouranos is scheduled to cruise the Mediterranean this summer season before going on display at the 2016 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show.

The launch of the Ouranos comes just over a week since the launch of the 55 metre hybrid yacht, Quinta Essentia (see pictures below). This is the biggest yacht ever built by Admiral.

The Quinta Essentia has a low environmental impact as a result of several hi-tech features such as an advanced hybrid propulsion system which integrates two traditional engines with two electric motors. They are connected to variable speed generators. The system also boasts a traditional transmission with two shafts.
