Perini Navi delivers 60m sailing superyacht Seahawk

Perini Navi delivers 60m sailing superyacht Seahawk

Italian superyacht builder Perini Navi has delivered the first yacht in its new 60m series, the sailing yacht Seahawk.

Launched May 2013, Seahawk made her world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show in September along with Perini Navi's first in its new 40m line, State of Grace.

With a focus on performance-enhancing technology and sleek lines, the 60m line ushers in a new generation of Perini Navi yachts. The all-aluminium, ketch-rigged Seahawk features design in collaboration with Perini Navi's in-house team and Ron Holland. She boasts a gross tonnage of less than 500 GRT and a displacement of 570 tons.

Seahawk has two aluminium masts at 62 and 52m, and her sail plan totals 2,125 square metres. Booms, spreaders, foils, headstays and diagonals are in carbon fibre, and – a first for Perini Navi – carbon fibre is also utilised for the standing rigging. The Perini Navi Mast Division has also created a new generation of fully-recessed furlers for the head sails and new captive winches that increase manoeuvring power and speed; thanks to the new winches, Seahawk can tack in 42 seconds compared to the previous time of two minutes on previous yachts.

French designer Christian Liaigre is responsible for Seahawk's elegant yet traditionally maritime-inspired interiors. The focus of her layout is centered around the the staircase, which unites the three levels of the yacht. Seahawk accommodates owner and guests in four en suite guest staterooms and a full-beam owner's suite that has two beds on either side and can be divided by a sliding wall to convert into two VIP staterooms for chartering.

The next Perini Navi 60m, scheduled for a 2014 delivery, is sloop-rigged and will feature a 75m carbon-fibre mast, while the third unit, the ketch-rigged C.2232, is scheduled to be delivered in 2015.
