The 53 metre Perini Navi sailing yacht Jasali II has returned to her home shipyard to begin a winter refit and general maintenance work.
The refit marks the complete restarting of all production activities at Perini Navi's Viareggio facilities. It comes less than a year after the Perini Navi brand was acquired by The Italian Sea Group (TISG).
The yacht will remain at Perini Navi's facilities until April 2023. Work will include general surveying and maintenance, as well as a redesign of the yacht's exterior that will give Jasali II a fresh look and feel ahead of her summer charter season with West Coast International.
The work will be carried out by NCA refit brand of TISG and supervised by the yacht's captain Danilo Lo Bianco.
"I am very proud to have here today an icon of Perini Navi history, the 53 metre Jasali II, an important return to the territory and a tangible sign of continuity," said Giovanni Costantino, founder and CEO of TISG. "In 2023 we will complete the refurbishment and rebranding of this site by completing the TISG 4.2 investment plan, which also includes the expansion and renovation of the Marina di Carrara headquarters and the La Spezia site, where the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 production has been completely transferred."
Launched in 1998, Jasali II represents one of the original Perini Navi designs and marks the third Perini Navi yacht on the water measuring over 50 metres in length. The first Perini Navi, 39 metre La Numero Uno, was delivered in 1983.
Since its acquisition by TISG, Perini Navi has pressed ahead with a new line of Malcolm McKeon-designed yachts and sister brand Picchiotti has relaunched a new Gentleman's model. Perini Navi also reports that production on 60 metre sailing yacht Katana has been well underway since the acquisition.
