Navigo Partner: Perini Navi

Perini Navi is a world leader in the design and build of superyachts, both sailing and motor. It was a combination of technical brilliance and near-perfect aesthetics that put Perini Navi in a class of its own. Industrialist Fabio Perini, unable to find the boat that he wanted for himself – a large sailing yacht which could be handled by one person – built his own. Since inception, the company has built 62 yachts – up to 88 metres and over in length. With over 50% of the world market for sailing yachts over 40 metres, Perini Navi’s track record is impressive. In-house design has allowed Perini Navi to implement its own systems and inventions.

In May 2017, the Tabacchi family entered into an agreement with the FAPER Group in which Fenix Srl acquired 49.99% of Perini Navi. Perini Navi is headquartered in Viareggio, Italy, with a metalworking facility in Istanbul, Turkey and an office in Newport, USA.

History of Perini Navi

Perini Navi was founded in 1983 by Fabio Perini, an inventor with a passion for sailing. At first, Perini Navi primarily was a studio for designing and engineering large luxury sailing yachts, but by 1988, the company began building its own designs.

Perini Navi's goal was to create large yachts that could be handled by a small crew, and to that end, the shipyard helped develop a computerised sail-handling system that would enable sails to be furled and unfurled with the push of a button. Following many years as a leader in the international sailing yacht industry, Perini Navi entered the luxury motor yacht sector in 2007 and since then has built three award winning motor yachts – Exuma, Galileo G and Grace E.

Perini Navi is renowned for the 88 metre sailing yacht Maltese Falcon, a majestic sailing yacht with three masts with curvilinear spars, naval architecture by Gerald Dijkstraand Partners, and an interior design by Ken Freivokh Studio.

In 2016, Perini Navi delivered the 70 metre Sybaris which debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show, winning the award for Best Interiors, and was later declared Sailing Yacht of the Year at the 2017 World Superyacht Awards hosted by Boat International in Florence.

Most recently, Perini Navi launched the 60 metre Seven, sistership to the 60 metre ketch Seahawk which was the first of the successful 60m series.
