Perini Navi sells two new-build motor yacht projects
by Chris Jefferies
Italian boatbuilder Perini Navi has announced the sale of two new-build motor yacht projects in direct deals.
The first of which is a 52 metre steel and aluminium yacht to be built at the Pichiotti shipyard in La Spezia and delivered in late 2019, while the second yacht is a top secret project that will be built entirely from aluminium.
Fabio Boschi, chairman of Perini Navi, said: “The conclusion of two sales contracts is an important confirmation of the efficacy of our chosen path, focusing on our products and our distinctive quality.
“Despite the extremely competitive nature of today's market, we are confident about further developments of important ongoing initiatives, thanks also to the extraordinary reputation of our companies and the pride and competence of those who work with us," he added.
Information about the two yachts is few and far between at this stage, with no renderings of either released, but Perini Navi has disclosed some select details.
The 52 metre Pichiotti yacht will feature an expansive superyacht beach club, complete with spa area and gymnasium. Meanwhile the owner’s cabin will be situated on the upper deck with a forward-facing view.
The second order is far more secretive — not even the length has been disclosed — but Perini Navi does reveal that it is the result of extensive research into “eco-compatibility, noise/vibration reduction and… navigation technology to enhance onboard security”.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include a pair of 60 metre Ron Holland-designed sailing yachts, C2232 and C2239, which are both due to launch before the end of the year.
