Perini Navi retires Picchiotti motor yacht brand

Perini Navi retires Picchiotti motor yacht brand

Italian yard Perini Navi used its pre-Monaco Yacht Show press conference to announce that it will be retiring the Picchiotti name and bringing both motor and sailing yachts under the same brand.

Speaking at the Monaco Yacht Club yesterday (September 26), Lamberto Tacoli, chairman and CEO of Perini Navi said: “Picchiotti remains part of the family - it was not a decision against Picchiotti, but a decision for Perini Navi.” He also suggested the motor yacht brand’s name was not dead forever, adding: “We are thinking about strategies for a line in the future, it is a question of time.”

In a wide-ranging press conference, the yard also revealed that it has sold the fourth hull in its 60 metre semi-custom sailing yacht series, which will be the sistership to Seahawk, Perseus 3 and Seven (pictured above and on display at Monaco this week).

Other sailing yacht projects under development at the Italian yard include a new 42 metre sloop (pictured below), which has secured a letter of intent.

Currently known as the 42 Evolution, this new design boasts modern styling to match its cutting-edge electric propulsion system.

Sales director Fabrizio Sgariglia described the boat as “a very sleek and extremely fast carbon package,” with a transom that offers a “friendly approach to the sea” as well as a new keel system and a new generation of captive winches.
