"Attention to details at every step guarantees efficiency and quality” is the Italian Sea Group’s and Admiral brand’s philosophy

In the 1950s, Cantieri Navali Lavagna, a company renowned for its wooden yachts, expanded into the yacht building market under the brands Arcobaleno Super and President. In 1966, Admiral, their first wooden yacht, measuring 18 meters in length, was launched. By the late 1970s, Admiral ventured into constructing yachts much larger than the average 18-meter vessels. Their first such yacht, the 34-meter wooden MAU MAU, boasted a top speed of 32 knots, an impressive feat for that time.

Admiral focused on building high-performance and safe yachts, and started incorporating light alloys like steel and aluminum, ensuring that their yachts were sturdy and fast. In 1982, the company launched a 23-meter yacht made of aluminum alloy.

In 2011, Admiral was acquired by the Italian Sea Group.
