First look: Inside the 60m Perini Navi sailing superyacht Seven

First look: Inside the 60m Perini Navi sailing superyacht Seven

To mark her triumph at the 2018 Boat International Design and Innovation Awards, the first interior photos of the 60 metre sailing superyacht Seven have been released by Perini Navi and Videoworks.

Seven was honoured for her lighting design — a feature developed by the yard working in collaboration with Videoworks and design studio Dante O Benini & Partners.

“The work that we did together with Videoworks was carried out in perfect symbiosis and allowed us to realise a very innovative system that avoids any kind of dazzling light," explained Benini. "When the sun comes in through the windows aboard Seven, it creates an absolutely natural play of shadows and light. This was what we wanted to recreate with artificial illumination.”

Working in accordance with the new DALI protocol, Videoworks tested every lighting feature in its technical laboratory to ensure a consistent level of dimming and stability in each area.

Maurizio Minossi, co-founder and technical director at Videoworks, added: “Yacht illumination systems have become truly complex. Our goal is to supply a solid and reliable technical package to sustain the creativity of architects and lighting designers.”

The follow-up to Seahawk and Perseus3, Seven features naval architecture from Ron Holland Design. She was designed to balance peak performance with comfortable bluewater cruising, while measuring in with a total interior of less than 500GT.

Her two Panamax aluminium masts — dressed with carbon-fibre rigging, booms and spreaders — carry a total sail plan of more than 2,000 square metres.

Speaking at her August 2017 launch, Lamberto Tacoli, chairman and CEO of Perini Navi, said: "The realisation of this project represents an important achievement for the shipyard, in which we worked in close synergy with the owners. This is also the first launch since Perini Navi entered into the partnership agreement with the Tabacchi family and is testament to how the company has kept its core values intact, while at the same time strengthening the brand's position as a world leader in Italian excellence.”

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 60 metre ketch-rigged yacht C2239, which is due to launch next year.
