Perini Navi's 50m hull C.2173 turned

Perini Navi's 50m hull C.2173 turned

The latest 50m Perini Navi hull fabricated at the Perini Istanbul/Yildiz facility has been turned upright. After a little more than 5 months following cutting of the first aluminium plate, the 73 tonne hull was ready for rotation.

After mating to the superstructure, outfit work will continue in Yildiz with the hull and superstructure slated to depart Istanbul later this summer for final commissioning in Viareggio.

This 50 meter yacht, designed by Perini Navi in collaboration with Ron Holland, will be ketch-rigged with a swing keel and centralised servo-assisted sail-plan controls. The hull and superstructure will be built in aluminium with a mixed longitudinal / transverse structure. Main propulsion will be provided by twin diesel engines and the delivery date is set for 2012.
