The company puts emphasis on quality and pays special attention to details when building yachts, thus embodying the best of what the brand “Made in Italy” represents.

"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, the company that dealt in wooden yachts, entered the yacht building market and made them under the Arcobaleno Super and the President brands. The first Admiral – the 18‑meter wooden yacht – was launched in 1966. By the end of the 1970s, Admiral started building yachts considerably bigger than the average 18-meter vessels. 34-meter wooden MAU MAU became the first such yacht, which, in addition to its length, could also boast the ability to reach a speed of 32 knots, and that was an impressive speed for a yacht of that time. Admiral staked on high-performance and safe yachts and started using light alloys: steel and aluminum yachts of the company guaranteed high strength and safety, preserving excellent speed characteristics. Thus, a 23-meter yacht from aluminum alloy appeared in 1982.

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