The hull of C. 2218, the second of two yachts in the new generation of 60m sailing yachts sold by Perini Navi, has been turned at the Perini Istanbul-Yildiz shipyard.
The C.2218 sloop, designed by Perini Navi naval architects in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland, has an aluminium hull and superstructure that will result in a full load displacement of approximately 570 tonnes for a less than 500 gross tonne vessel. The yacht will be equipped with the new generation Perini Navi sail handling equipment and a centreboard that varies the draught from 12.3m to 4.3m.
An in-house Perini Navi team is designing the interior, which will accommodate up to 12 guests in a full beam owner's suite and four cabins.
By the end of summer 2012, the hull will be transferred to Perini Navi's Viareggio shipyard for outfitting and is expected to be completed for delivery in the first half of 2014.
