Work is "proceeding at full speed" on the fourth hull in Perini Navi's 60-metre sailing series at The Italian Sea Group's (TISG) Marina di Carrara shipyard. Launch and delivery are expected by the end of 2024, signalling positive development for the shipyard after its acquisition by TISG.
Originally known as Project C2239, the sailing yacht was started on speculation in 2016 in Viareggio and sold a year into its construction. Work resumed on the yacht in 2022. Once delivered, she will join sisterships Perseus 3, Seahawk and Seven on the water.
The build has been developed in collaboration with Ron Holland, who also oversaw naval architecture. Equipped with carbon fibre masts, booms and rigging, her sailing system has been "redesigned" to increase ease of handling and improve performance. She will also feature a "latest generation dynamic positioning system", allowing owners to position and direct the yacht without using an anchor.
Accommodation will be across five guest cabins and a master suite, with interiors styled by acclaimed French designer Rémi Tessier. While full details are yet to be disclosed, the shipyard has described the setting as "refine[d]", but "without the need for ostentation".
Power is expected to come from twin MTU diesel engines for a top speed of 15.5 knots.
