The Burgess New Construction team is working with The Italian Sea Group as technical managers for the build of the 65.9m (216.2ft) Admiral GC Force 66. Scheduled for delivery in early 2023, the motor yacht has naval architecture and exterior design by the yard's in-house team and interior design by British designer Mark Berryman working with the yard's team. With a steel hull, aluminium superstructure and volume of 1,200GT, she is being built to Lloyd's Commercial Register.
A large sun deck has a touch and go helipad forward with steps leading down to a 2,500-litre raised jacuzzi. Through sliding glass doors is a fully equipped bar, oven, BBQ and DJ station with a dayhead to starboard.
The upper deck aft features a bar, sit-up dining bar and the focus of the sun lounge aft is three deck skylights. Curved glass doors slide back to reveal an indoor-outdoor circular dining table for 12 guests. Moving forward, there is a fully equipped bar, a cocktail lounge and a lounge area.
The main deck is home to one of the absolute stand-out feature of this yacht: a huge winter garden that flows into the huge sunpad with sit up bar aft. The winter garden has folding doors aft and full height windows either side, the upper halves of which raise and lower to open or close the space. Sliding glass doors forward open into a main saloon that has folding bulwarks either side to give the space uninterrupted views.
Steps lead down to the beach club fitness centre open on three sides to create a connection with the sea. The focus of the space is a 1,000-litre pool with views through all three openings. As well as gym equipment there is a sauna, steam room, mud room, emotional shower, scuba diving equipment store and a dayhead.
She accommodates 12 guests in six cabins. The full beam owner's suite is forward on the main deck with a lounge area to port and a breakfast area to starboard. Port aft of the owner's suite is a VIP suite. The lower deck is home to two double cabins and two convertible cabins. She also sleeps 16 crew.
Twin 2,012hp Caterpillar diesel engines give her a top speed of 15.5 knots, a cruising speed of 14.5 knots and a transatlantic range of 6,000nm at 10 knots. Two pairs of zero speed stabilisers ensure comfort at anchor on arrival. Tenders of up to 7.5m and watertoys are stowed beneath the foredeck and deployed through shell doors.
