Kenshō: An exclusive look on board Admiral's 75m showstopper

(Kenshō is available for charter with Y.CO) 

Years of research, a curious mind, a professional team and a couple of newcomers to the world of yachting have produced Kenshō, a yacht Sam Fortescue discovers under the Tuscan sun.

Gleaming in the golden light of a Tuscan evening, there is absolutely no mistaking the boat I have travelled so far to see. A much larger 140 metre Lürssen nearby should dominate the view at The Italian Sea Group's shipyard in Carrara, but the eye is instantly drawn to the flowing lines and metallic blue-green hull of Kenshō lying quietly in her shadow. It is apparent before I even step aboard that this is not a normal yacht.

Don't think for a second that Kenshō is small. She measures just over 75 metres from stern to slightly bulbous reverse bow, filling 1,989 gross tonnes. She is the most significant launch to date for the ambitious The Italian Sea Group.

While no such project can be successfully launched without efficient collaboration between many parties, Kenshō was an owner-driven project. His relentless questioning of the status quo and smart design work mean that all four of her guest decks are entirely given over to accommodation, with all the technical space fitted onto the tank deck. She offers seven guest cabins - two that can also be used for staff - and a vast owner's suite, leaving room for 23 crew.

But these are all just numbers. To understand what this boat is really about, how she took six years to create, and why her hyper-engaged owner chose to name her with the Japanese word meaning "seeing one's true nature", you have to step aboard. And step back in time to 2016, when the foundations for this project were laid.
