Perini Navi sailing yacht Sybaris delivered
by Chris Jefferies
Sybaris, the 70 metre Perini Navi sailing superyacht commissioned by Bill Duker, has been delivered. She will now head to Port Hercules where she will be one of the largest yachts at Monaco Yacht Show 2016.
Designed by Perini Navi, with naval architecture and sail plan optimisation by Philippe Briand, Sybaris has a sail plan of more than 3,000 sqm and boasts a new electrical generation system to help with sail handling.
She is the second largest Perini Navi to date (second only to Maltese Falcon), with a displacement of 927 tonnes and a total internal volume of 870 gross tonnes. Built in aluminium with a carbon-fibre rig, her two masts reach 72 and 62 metres respectively.
As Duker told Boat International last year, Sybaris is intended to allow her owner to live every day to the fullest and has been a dream of his since 1995.
Her interior, by PH Design, is a showcase of luxurious contemporary design and features only custom-designed furniture. “The interior is minimal, but not minimalist,” Duker said. “And every piece of furniture on board is art — every turn of the corner is art! I don’t think it’s possible to give a higher level of detail.”
Inside, she has a vast guest area with panoramic views from the main saloon, which is uninterrupted by structural pillars. On deck the 18 metre long flying bridge offers plenty of space for guests to relax or entertain. Sybaris can accommodate six guests in one master and two VIP rooms.
