Sail-World.com : Seahawk arrives, first of Perini Navi 60m sailing yachts
Seahawk arrives, first of Perini Navi 60m sailing yachts


'Seahawk aerial'    .

The Perini Navi Group, known for their 40-60m sailing yachts, but probably best known among cruising sailors for their iconic yacht the Maltese Falcon, have delivered the first of their new generation of 60m yachts, Seahawk.

Seahawk sailing -  .. .  

With innovative hull lines and technological solutions, these yachts guarantee speed and performance under sail along with even more ample and comfortable interior volumes than previous yachts.

Seahawk has a sleek hull and superstructure in aluminium with a gross tonnage of under 500 GT and a displacement of 570 tons.

The variable keel length allows for a draught that goes from 4.30 to 12.30m. The ketch, designed by the naval architects at Perini Navi in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland, has a total sail plan area of 2.125 sqm featuring two aluminium masts of 62 e 52m.

The booms and spreaders are in carbon fibre as are the foils, head-stays and diagonals. And, for the first time on a Perini Navi ketch, carbon fibre has also been used for the standing rigging.

On the foredeck a new generation of fully recessed furlers for the head sails has been created by the Perini Navi Mast Division which has also developed the new captive winches installed onboard which increase manoeuvring power and speed.

Interior:
Only sketches are available at the time of writing, but the interiors, penned by the French designer Christian Liaigre, are said by the manufacturer to have a refined and extremely elegant contemporary allure with traditional maritime elements.

The three principal areas on Seahawk’s main deck- dining room, living room and office- are planned around a staircase, an element that unites the three levels of the yacht.

The lower deck has four en suite guest cabins and a full-beam owner’s suite whose original layout features two double beds placed diagonally across from each other and sliding walls that can be closed to divide the suite into two for charter use.
