Kensho: interiors by Jouin Manku
The innovative Kenshō megayacht, delivered in July 2022, was born from the collaboration between the Owner, who personally followed the project, the French agency Jouin Manku, which designed the interiors and Azure Design, that developed the exteriors together with archineers.berlin
Technical challenges are answered with feasible but poetic solutions redefining the boundaries of space, distribution, and luxury, embodying the Owner’s personal vision towards a new idea of the sea voyage experience.
Kensho: exteriors by Azure Yacht Design
From the exteriors to the interiors, the narrative is fluid and contemporary: Teak, Marble, Onyx, Silk, Wool, Bronze and Glass, make up a heterogeneous set of materials combined for a poetic and refined result.
Consistent with The Italian Sea Group’s strategy, more and more sustainability-oriented, Admiral Kenshō is equipped with an innovative “diesel-electric” propulsion system, with permanent magnet electric engines that provide high efficiency and strong power, with limited volumes. The propulsion system is equipped with five variable speed generators, all provided with an anti-particulate system to optimize consumption at any speed and reduce emissions into the atmosphere.
The design was developed mostly focusing on the environmental impact, respecting the “ECO” notation of the IACS; even the hull was designed to minimize the resistance using an Azimuth thruster and retractable stabilization flaps.
