Splendid at Sea

By Chris Boyle

OMPHALOS I CONCEPT / ADMIRAL TECNOMARExtreme, iconic modern style, automotive and aircraft inspiration…not phrases you might normally associate with a top yacht maker, yes?

But, to Italy’s forward-thinking Admiral Tecnomar yacht firm, high style is job numero uno.

Since 1966, the builder has launched 132 one-of-a-kind yachts that all share one important element: Incredible attention to detail. Take the Omphalos I 351-foot mega-yacht concept pictured here, for example.

The proportions are more sports car (or spaceship) than nautical; long flowing hull lines provide an eye-catching profile, while also allowing for ample, integrated deck space to bring the outside in.

Speaking of the interior, a sharp, aggressive prow gives way to a smooth, curvilinear aft and a unique ocular entry point into a series of four flowing, split-level decks.

Public spaces like the lobby and main saloon traverse two or three decks each. Owner and VIP accommodations are reserved for the mid-decks. While no price or launch date has been specified by the builder, one look at this unique vessel gives you an exclusive view into what the future of high-style luxury yachting holds.
