Sailing yacht State of Grace launched by Perini Navi
by Malcolm MacLean
Perini Navi saw in the New Year by launching State of Grace, the first yacht in their 40m fast cruising series, at the Perini Navi Istanbul/Yildiz shipyard.
State of Grace was designed in-house by the Perini Navi naval architect team in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland and has sleek lines, with both hull and superstructure in aluminium.
The 1,192 square metre sail plan can be handled by just one person thanks to an innovative sail control system designed by Perini Navi and built by the Mast Division. The yacht has a 50m mast, furling boom and standing rigging, all made with state of the art carbon fibre.
The saloon is on two levels and has a comfortable dining room and ample living space. Four staterooms, including a full beam owner’s suite with a gym, have innovative layouts and can accommodate up to nine guests comfortably.
Built to ABS class and MCA compliant, State of Grace has a range of 3,000 nautical miles.
