Perini Navi Group: Sales contract for hull number one of the 69m sailing yacht series signed
Viareggio, December 9th, 2011
Three contracts signed by the Group in 2011
The Perini Navi Group has closed the year 2011 on a positive note with the signing of a sales contract on a new 69m sailing yacht. Two more contracts for 60m sailing yachts were signed last summer.
The new 69m yacht, the second longest of the Perini Navi fleet after the clipper The Maltese Falcon, will be delivered in 2015.
The yacht, designed and created by the Perini Navi Group with additional consulting from Philippe Briand, is the latest expression of the high standards of design, technology and quality that have always characterized Perini Navi yachts. Innovation, elegance and comfort at the highest levels possible are just some of the elements that have allowed the Perini Navi Group to distinguish itself in the years and successfully confirm the value of its brand, its team and of its products.
The interior layout has been designed by the Perini Navi Design Office and will be completed in conjunction with the American interior design studio PH Design.
At the end of the year 2011 the Group’s orders amount to about 170 million Euro, with six yachts sold and currently under construction. The Group has also invested in the construction of two sailing yacht hulls, of 38 and 60m, that can be sold and consigned within the next two years.
The past year has seen the launching of the sailing yacht Fidelis, the tenth yacht in the 56m series; of the 55m motor yacht Galileo G, the second launching to date of the Picchiotti brand’s Vitruvius® series; and of Clan VIII, the fourth yacht in the 45m series.
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.
