Developed by naval architect Gian Marco Companino, the Momentum line is inspired by the great yachts of the 1930’s & 1940’s with traditional lines that have evolved into a new contemporary concept.
The Momentum line features all the luxury design elements one would expect onboard a yacht of this stature, yet never excessive which is a tribute to the great architect Mies Van Der Rohe.
Characteristics of the interior are integrated swimming pools, a beach club & spa completely open to the sea, vertical full-length windows for both the master & guest cabins, and glass is used throughout the superstructure inviting guests to enjoy the view from wherever they are traveling.
The M50 Momentum Explorer is a 499 GRT full displacement expedition yacht featuring a steel hull & aluminum superstructure. Her Caterpillar Acert C32 (1081kw @ 2100 rpm) gives her a 5,000nm range with 10% fuel burn margin at 11 knots and a top speed of 15 knots. Zero speed stabilizers and her steel hull assure complete comfort in any sea condition.
The M50 sleeps 10 guests in 5 cabins including a spacious master cabin located forward on the main deck with private balcony & office. Formal dining for 12 is just aft.
Both the main salon & sky lounge areas take advantage of the excellent use of glass creating inviting spaces with excellent views for when traveling to remote areas of the world.
The theme found on the entire Momentum series continues with the extended, open aft deck utilized for carrying multiple tenders and toys as one would expect on an expedition yacht.
Below the aft deck is the garage/beach club/gymnasium area complete with full bathroom. Fold down balconies are located both to port & starboard. Clients can configure this space as they wish and the options are endless. The space is completed with a large transom door that folds down with a retractable swim platform allowing guests easy access to the water.
The upper deck has a generous captain’s cabin, ships office, full bar, media room and a multi-purpose space with a bathroom that could be a sixth cabin, massage room, or library. Forward of the wheelhouse is a large pool surrounded by sunpads.
The sundeck is exactly that. A space filled with lounge chairs, sunpads, and a fire pit providing guests a great space to enjoy the best views on board.
Each Momentum Explorer is custom built at the request of the individual client from exterior hull & superstructure paint, to deck layouts, interior décor styles, and tender arrangements.
The interior décor renderings that are included in this presentation are only meant to give the client an idea of the space & styling that Admiral can create.
The design center at the Admiral Shipyard in Marina di Carrara is one of the finest in the world featuring thousands of swatches of fabrics, samples of the finest stone & marbles, leather, teak, wood paneling, suede. It is any designers dream. The shipyard welcomes client to involve their private designers to get involved in the project or the client can utilize the in-house team.

During the 1950s Admiral started their production of wooden yachts under the brand ‘Arcobaleno Super’, which then became ‘President’. The first ‘Admiral’, 18 meters long and made of wood in 1966 was the natural evolution.
In the middle of the 1970s, the ‘Cantieri Navali Lavagna’ launched the first 30-meter motor yacht made of wood. This yacht, until then rarely built by other shipyards meaningfully contributed to the growth of the brand.
Thanks to the huge growth of “Admiral” the passion for planning yachts began.
During the 1970s the historical vessel called “MAU MAU”, 34 meters long put to sea and thanks to its four powerful engines made a top speed of 32 knots.
“SAHARET”, “IPSUM”, “ERAF”, “KADIA”, “SAUDADE” and other several yachts more than 30 meters long, were conceived and built in a period when the average dimension wasn’t greater than18 meters. Having chosen the path of high-performance and high-safety at sea, building Admiral yachts required the use of light alloy and in 1982 the shipyard launched the first light alloy ADMIRAL of 23.50 meters. Since then the Admiral brand has been characterized by steel and aluminum yachts guaranteeing high solidity according to weights and contents, maintaining high-speed performances, whatever the sea condition in maximum safety.
In November 2011, Admiral was acquired by Italian Sea Group:
“The Admiral yachts range completes the Tecnomar portfolio and allows the creation of new synergies and growth opportunities,” says Giovanni Costantino, then Chairman and CEO of Tecnomar.
“The acquisition enables us, therefore, to broaden the offer and to increase the presence of the Group in the market thanks to a brand that maintained its great appeal intact among the Owners all over the world”.
“We are very proud of the acquisition”, underlines Giovanni Costantino. “We consider that the Group will be able to exploit to the utmost the growth opportunities”.
Admiral offers 11 different series in steel and aluminum with 32 models between 37 and 145 meters, planning, semi-displacement and displacement. Every new construction is customized to coincide with the expectations of each Owner, thanks to an important stylistic culture and a competent Centro Stile within the Group.
