Tuscany-based shipyard The Italian Sea Group has announced that its 73.2-metre (240-foot) superyacht Planet Nine – its largest build to date – is now ready for delivery.
Previously known as Admiral Project 575 and launched in January 2018 at Marina di Carrara, the full-displacement custom motor yacht boasts elegant and welcoming interiors, as well as all of the top-of-the-range details and technologies required for research expeditions around the globe.
Planet Nine can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests across six staterooms – including a 300-square-metre owner’s suite, which spans an entire deck and features two separate cabins and a main lounge area.
The upper deck, featuring the remaining accommodation, benefits from an observatory lounge and a dedicated cinema room equipped with a 112-inch screen. There is also a luxurious beach club which includes a spa area for guests.
In addition, Planet Nine has a raft of technological extras, including a spacious helicopter hangar (capable of storing an Augusta Grande or similar) and elevators linking all five decks together. She also has an aft tender garage with two 9.75-metre Rupert Marine tenders and includes luxurious beach club with a spa area for guests.
Giuseppe Taranto, CEO and worldwide sales director at The Italian Sea Group, said at the time of the launch, "We are proud of this construction and are confident she will be a benchmark in her category. She is a yacht with a unique style that will attract attention in every port. Planet Nine is also a great achievement in terms of technology.
“[The interiors] recall the classic taste and the elegant atmosphere typical of timeless yachts, but with a touch of sober modernity."
Specific engine and technical details remain under wraps, but she is expected to be able to cruise long distances with ease.
The ice-classed explorer yacht, built to Lloyd’s standard, is not just the largest project the yard has completed – it is also one of the largest explorer yachts in existence. Planet Nine is currently listed for sale at the asking price of €85,000,000 and is scheduled to be delivered to her new owner before the end of 2018.
