Perini Navi Returns With A Sporty Sailing Yacht

The 47-metre vessel boasts an aluminium hull and carbon-fibre mast.

After a bit of a lull, Perini Navi is back with a groundbreaking new sloop.

The iconic sailing brand, which the Italian Sea Group bought for approx. $131 million last December, has returned from the depths of bankruptcy with a 47-metre vessel designed for the future of yachting.

Indeed, the sailing yacht’s engineering and tech appear to be at the bleeding edge. The vessel sports a sleek aluminium hull and a deep V-shaped bow that helps it maintain a steady heel angle, as reported by Boat International. It’s also equipped with a 200-foot carbon-fibre mast that supports a main sail and jib collectively spanning more than 13,000 square feet. The innovative new sail handling system, meanwhile, tracks and controls the sails via captive winches below deck.

Elsewhere, the sloop’s twin rudders can be synchronized through a “fly-by-wire” system for greater maneuverability when both sailing and docking. She also sports a re-engineered keel that allows her to easily navigate shallow waters. (This maximum draft is 11-metres when the keel is down, while the minimum draft is around 4-metres when it’s up.)

In terms of grunt, the yacht packs a CAT engine that can produce 533 kWh at 2,100 rpm and two main generators offering 86 kWh each. The vessel is expected to reach around 13 knots at full tilt and can cover up to 3,500 nautical miles when travelling at a cruising speed of 10 knots, according to Perini Navi.

With a beam of 10-metres, the new sailer has a volume of 390 GT and offers a lot more space than other yachts in her class. She can sleep up to 10 guests across four ensuite cabins and one supersized owner’s suite. The quintessentially Italian interior was designed in-house and pairs a bold colour palette with modern furnishings.

Elsewhere, the yacht sports a wide swim platform, a sprawling flybridge and a large bow housing a 21-foot tender. Of course, it’s also fitted with a dedicated crane to launch and recover toys and tenders.

The new sloop is expected to hit the seas in 2024. It’s certainly good to see you back, Perini Navi.
