Perini Navi Group proudly announces the sale of a 60m ketch, hull number C.2232. This aluminium sailing yacht will be the third in the most recent Series of Blue Water Sailing Yachts created by Perini Navi.
This latest contract was signed with the collaboration of Fraser Yachts.
The interior, for the first time, will see the collaboration between Perini Navi and the Italian Architect Michela Reverberi whose timeless elegance and style will complete the innovative design of this 60m hull.
Following on the recently delivered Seahawk and the soon to be launched sloop Perseus3, C. 2232 has a sleek hull and superstructure in aluminum with a gross tonnage of under 500 GT and displacement of approx 570 tonnes.
Her innovative hull lines and technological solutions guarantee speed and performance under sail, along with uncompromised comfort and safety. At her racing debut in the recent St. Barths Bucket, Seahawk’s performance amply exceeded her predicted performances, much to the joy of her owners.
Created by Perini Navi Design Team, the vessel naval architecture is optimized in collaboration with Ron Holland and her two Panamax aluminum masts – dressed with carbon fiber rigging, booms and spreaders – carry over 2000 square meters of sail area. Sailing performance is enhanced by the unprecedented power and speed built into the latest Perini Navi Sail Handling Technology.
Highly optimized performance-oriented centerboard keel affords typical Perini Navi accessibility to shallow waters
Delivery of C.2232 is scheduled for 2016.
In the meantime the Perini Navi Group has several other yachts under construction at various stage of completion: the sloop Perseus3, the 2nd yacht in the 60m Series; the 70 m ketch Sybaris; the recently contacted 38m sloop C.2130, second yacht in the Perini Navi racing line and the 73m Picchiotti motoryacht Grace E.
With a fleet of 56 yachts on the water- 54 sailing yachts and 2 motor yachts- the Perini Navi Group is the world leader in the design and construction of large sailing yachts. In 2007 the Group also began to build motor yachts with the brand name Picchiotti, thus re-launching the historic Picchiotti shipyard acquired in the early 1990’s. The Group is made up of the Perini Navi shipyard in Viareggio, founded in the 1980’s by Fabio Perini who invented and developed a revolutionary automatic sail control system, and the Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia where the Group constructs its motor yachts and concentrates most of its refitting and repairing work. The Perini Istanbul-Yildiz shipyard in Yildiz, Turkey is where the Group’s hulls and deck structures are produced. Additionally, Perini Navi USA is a commercial division of the Group through which owners of Perini Navi Group yachts can arrange charters and find brokerage services for both new and previously owned Perini Navi Group yachts.
