Philippe Briand unveils sistership to Perini Navi P2
by Laura Nineham
The performance sloop, designed by Philippe Briand, has been developed as a sistership to the 38m Perini Navi P2.
Philippe Briand has re-worked many of the popular features from the P2, updating these elements to refine the sailing superyacht for performance and cruising. A furling boom has been added, the water ballast neutralised to create more space inside and the roof houses a spacious and well-sheltered cockpit.
“The 39m is a very responsive swift and agile yacht,” says Philippe Briand. “It has an appealing attractive design and size for owners looking predominantly for performance It is fully optimised and highly competitive in superyacht regattas as well as offering very comfortable cruising features.
“Once again my team and I are delighted to partner with The Perini Navi Group to further develop this successful design.”
The two sister superyachts will meet at the Perini Navi Cup in Porto Cervo in September 2015.
The news comes a month after Perini Navi announced another 39m performance sloop, Project C.2196.
