The Admiral 31 ship with its clean cut lines has the particular characteristic of being entirely built of aluminium, a metal that adapts well to nautical purposes thanks to its mechanical features, resistance to corrosion and easy handling. The internal elegance of Admiral 31, the care taken with detail and the pleasant layout of space, make it an excellent product that contributes to reinforcing the Italian shipyards' good reputation.

Let's look at the main parts of the ship: the cockpit, vast and decked in teak just like the whole external bridge, hosts a dining area with table and chairs in synthetic rattan. There is an extremely wide stairway that leads from the cockpit to the fly bridge. Featuring an open, uncluttered space, there is a lounge with table, sofa, pouffe and sun lounger towards stern, a galley unit on port side and external wheelhouse at starboard. A large section roll bar holds up the aerials for the navigation and telecommunication apparatus as well as the lights. The walkways on the main bridge are wide and easily passable and the area at bow is well organised and equipped for mooring. From the large open bathing platform, the garage, that can hold a tender of 4.5m, can be accessed through the opening of the transom (there is another garage for jet-skis at bow). Let's move on to the interiors: the lounge, going in through the cockpit, appears to be an extremely large, bright open space furnished in modern minimalist style with three sofas, table and pouffe and glass dining table with armchairs. White, brightness and elegance are apparent everywhere: polished ceilings and walls, leather and upholstery. In contrast and leit motiv are the Cs in dark wood that surround the dining table and beds. The carpet is a warm hemp colour. Apart from the custom made furniture, the ornaments and furnishings are all, of course, from top designers. There are 4 cabins, two double and two twin: the owner's cabin is located on the main bridge while the others are on the lower cabin bridge. Naturally, they all have their own bathroom with separate shower. The layout of the galley is unusual, located on the lower bridge with an annex area for the crew, that includes two twin cabins and a double for the captain. The wheelhouse, upholstered in burgundy coloured leather is located above the galley on the upper bridge. Once again the Cantieri Nautici di Lavagna has managed to combine high technology, the performance of a good hull and the ergonomics of space with style and elegance that makes their work exceptional.
