Here are some comments from the designer, Philippe Briand:

“When we have read the requirements of Admiral sail for the design of a new sailing yacht, we were pleasantly surprised and immediately motivated.

First of all, I admire all entrepreneurs who want to build sailing yachts as we all know the technical challenges are bigger than for motor yachts and the business side is also much tougher.

The Italian Sea Group team explained that they wanted to build a sailing yacht that would be a beautiful holiday platform for family and friends.

The team mentioned comfort, external deck spaces, a very protected cockpit, aft deck terrace, performance, smart lines and fun to use. Those elements are high on the list of many potential yachtsmen. There is to our knowledge no existing 38m sailing yacht, delivering all those features.

The key element lies in the naval architecture and structure of the hull. We have designed a beamier hull at midships and a wider section aft. This is the trend of the last successful generation of racing sailing yachts and those yachts have proven to be very efficient. The huge advantage given by this modern and fast shape is the volume and deck space created.

We used the volume inside to design an extremely wide and comfortable owner’s stateroom aft. The general layout offers two more guests cabins and a multifunctional space (office, salon, or third guest cabin). The crew quarters are LY3 compliant, with accommodations for 4 crew and the captain.

The layout of the deck space is novel. The cockpit is protected by a hard top, with a sliding bimini, and can be fully protected, with retractable windowpanes. The cockpit becomes the formal dining area on deck at night!

The large aft terrace is another feature of this 38m yacht. It procures a protected sunbathing platform with access to the sea and is also connected with the owner’s stateroom.

The exterior design is largely part of the Admiral‘s DNA. The yacht is dynamic and will be very responsive. Admiral sail Wave 38 will be a fast and fun sailing yacht and a meeting place for those who love wind and water.”

The Admiral Sail Wave 38 yacht will be rigged with carbon mast and carbon furling boom with provision for autotacking jib, slightly overlapping foresail, staysail and downwind sail.
