The History of Admiral and Yachting

Admiral officially began building yachts in 1962, however, the origins of the brand can be found in the 1950s when Cantieri Navali Lavagna started producing wooden motor yachts under the moniker “Arcobaleno Super.” The first Admiral yacht to make its debut in 1966 was an 18-meter wooden flybridge yacht, which was so popular that the shipyard began to build larger versions, including a 30-meter yacht based on the same design, which launched in the mid-1970s. The 34-meter MAU MAU also followed suit and was outfitted with four engines, which provided her with a top speed of 32 knots. Yachts in the 30-meter range were rare in the 1970s and Admiral continued to stand out as it launched five more 30-meter yachts, including SAHARET, IPSUM, ERAF, KADIA and SAUDADE.

In 1982, Admiral launched its first yacht using light alloy materials, which provided both high performance and exceptional safety at sea. Admiral is now renowned for its steel and aluminum yachts that provide high speeds, top performance and the epitome of on-water safety.

In 2011, Admiral became part of The Italian Sea Group in the Technomar portfolio, which provided the brand with the ability to expand its portfolio, broaden its reach and better serve clients around the world.
