Marina di Carrara sees the presentation of the 72-metre Admiral megayacht designed by Giorgio Armani – photos
- 14 February 2023
The Italian stylist and entrepreneur, Giorgio Armani, came to the Venice Film Festival, starting 9 September, with his megayacht, Main, a black 65 metre vessel, built by the Codecasa shipyard, right in front of the Arsenale Militare.
The choice of mooring space is no coincidence. Besides the fact that at Riva degli Schiavoni it is not uncommon to run into a superyacht or military vessel, it is also very close to the Arsenale Militare, the exclusive location of One Night Only, a fashion show event and party for over 500 selected guests, including Armani Ambassadors and Armani Beauties, who promote the brand. Godmother of the event was Italian actress Sophia Loren.
A prestigious occasion, which, in the past, has been held in Tokyo, London, Paris and Dubai, and now in the city of the Film Festival to highlight the connection between the brand and the seventh art. Applauding the Armani Prive collection, were models, celebrities from the big and small screen, musicians – all fans of King Giorgio’s incomparable style.
The Main and surrounding area welcomed guests for pre and post show cocktails. In addition, the Main was also the location of the ceremony conferring upon Giorgio Armani a Leone d’Oro. Presenting the award was the mayor of Venice, Luigi Brugnaro: an award given for this 80th edition of the Venice Film Festival.
Daily Nautica filmed and photographed the Main in Venice. Main is 65 metres long and is an architectural and engineering masterpiece created by the Viareggio-based shipyard, Codecasa, and launched in 2008. The interior is, obviously, by Giorgio Armani, who now enjoys working in yacht interior design, like in the new 72-metre Admiral, which will be built in partnership with The Italian Sea Group.
Main has elegant and sober lines, both inside and out, which are the perfect balance between beauty and functionality. The yacht’s bow is tapered and seems to be a sort of introduction to everything that comes after, concluding with the stern and its large, elegant staircase inviting passengers to step into the water.
The interior of the Main is the expression of Armani’s signature style: furinture is minimalist, with dark furniture, and décor in steel and teak. A true gem of the seas.
