The Perini Navi relaunch proceeds at full sail

by The Italian Sea Group 22 Apr 2022 07:23 PDT

The Italian Sea Group, global operator in the luxury yachting industry, confirms the re-start of operations in the Viareggio and La Spezia production facilities in record time, and the new Perini Navi production plan.

The industrial blueprint designed by Giovanni Costantino, The Italian Sea Group Founder & CEO, entails that the Viareggio shipyards continue to be dedicated to the production of sailing vessels up to 60 metres, while vessels in the higher dimensional range will be manufactured in La Spezia and Marina di Carrara.

The strategy is clear: the Perini Navi brand will exclusively build large sailing yachts, respecting tradition and aesthetic lines, but "innovation" will be the keyword for design, sail system and propulsions.

The Perini Navi production plan already includes three deliveries, confirming the brand's prestige as an absolute leader for sailing yachts in the higher dimensional range, as well as the significant business capacity of the Group:

  • One 60 metre ketch which will be delivered by the end of 2023
  • One 47 metre sloop which will be delivered in the first semester of 2024
  • One 56 metre ketch which will be delivered by the end of 2024.

The new 47-metre sloop in aluminium is a Perini Navi by The Italian Sea Group sailing yacht, showing an evolution in style and design thanks to the Group's Style Centre.

The Perini Navi stylistic codes have been reinterpreted with a new energy, a bolder style and clear innovation in the aesthetic and functional choices which highlight even more the traditional comfort and wide spaces typical of metal hulls.

One of the innovations is the use of carbon not only for the towering 62.5 metre mast and the boom, but also for the diagonals, finishes, and deck accessories.

The dynamic spirit of this 47-metre yacht is further enhanced by the fly-by-wire system with twin rudders which allow for a better manoeuvrability at any condition and speed.

The delivery of this sloop is scheduled for the first half of 2024.
