Perini Navi Sailing Yachts

History

Perini Navi was founded in 1983. Thanks to an ingenious intuition of its founder, Fabio Perini, this new naval design company created a revolutionary sail handling system that allowed just one person to handle the sails of large-sized sailing yachts.

This innovation should be considered as twofold as it revolutionised both technology and design. From the technological viewpoint, Fabio Perini’s invention of the captive reel winch, an automatic reel system guided by electronically controlled electric motors, allowed for safe and sure handling of the huge sail areas required on large yachts. From the design viewpoint Fabio Perini introduced new aesthetic and architectural elements to sailing yachts that allowed for greater space and comfort onboard compared with other yachts produced at the time.

Perini Navi owes its success and fame to the quality of construction of its yachts, to the perfection of their interiors and to their comfort and safety under sail. All of these combined have given life to a new generation of sailing yachts.

Through the years the need to increase production capacity, to build a larger number of yachts and expand the product line has resulted in the acquisition of new shipyards: not only Viareggio, but also La Spezia and Yildiz, Turkey. In addition, Perini Navi USA in Newport, Rhode Island offers an important commercial structure for services such as chartering and brokerage for those wishing to hire, buy or sell new or used Perini Navi yachts.

Perini Navi is operative in four market sectors: large sailing yachts from 40 to 60 meters (their core business,) large sailing yachts over 60 meters and custom projects (such as The Maltese Falcon), The Racing Line of sailing yachts, and finally the Fast Cruising Line of sailing yachts.
Since its foundation in 1983, Perini Navi has launched 51 sailing yachts and has several others in production. Perini Navi has more than 50% share in the market of sailing yachts over 45mt.

All of the sail handling systems are developed and constructed in the shipyard, as are the masts and the rigging. Exclusive Perini Navi software is installed on board and monitors their yachts while under sail automatically transmitting data to the construction office.
