Viareggio, May 28, 2012

The Perini Navi Group, world leader in the design and construction of large sailing and motor yachts, is pleased to announce that the 30,65 m sloop Xnoi (pronounced per noi - “for us”) has been launched. This sailing yacht has a hull, superstructure, mast and boom in carbon fibre. The launching ceremony was held on Saturday May 26th at the Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia.

The construction of this new yacht – designed by Nauta Yacht Design’s Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino – meets the changing needs of today’s yachting market and expands the range of Perini Navi Group products. This innovative project demonstates the Perini Navi Group’s ability to successfully undertake construction projects in carbon fibre.

The Perini Navi Group’s core business is the construction of sailing yachts of 45 to 70 m, a Racing Line and a Fast Cruising Line, special projects, and motor yachts from the Picchiotti Vitruvius® series. In addition, their extensive Refit and Repairs department benefits from the Perini Navi Group’s vast experience acquired over years of work in the nautical sector assisting all types of yachts.

With a fleet of 53 yachts on the water- 51 sailing yachts and two 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 and the series name Vitruvius, 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. Another division is the Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia where the Group constructs its motor yachts and concentrates most of its refitting work, and the Perini Istanbul shipyard in Yildiz, Turkey where its hulls and deck structures are produced. 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.
