In 2007 the Perini Navi Group announced its entry into the motor yacht market and presented a new line of products which re-launched the Picchiotti brand. The new generation of motoryacht- the Picchiotti Vitruvius – was designed in collaboration with the French naval architect Philippe Briand. Briand was inspired by the hydrodynamics of sailing yachts in which their lines, distribution volume and weight are optimized to achieve the highest possible level of efficiency.
