The Italian Sea Group, a global luxury yachting operator, today unveiled the new and innovative Perini Navi fleet, one year after its acquisition.
Three lines of sailing ships from: 48, 56 and 77 meters. The fleet, named “Genesis,” confirms Perini Navi’s ultra high-level positioning as a global player in large sailing yachts.
The project stems from the goal of creating a line of sailing yachts with the characteristic and iconic elements of Perini Navi revisited in a modern key by focusing on large spaces, brightness and sailing comfort.
The exterior lines of the “Genesis” fleet reflect two essential assumptions: the desire to reinterpret in a contemporary way the classic aesthetics of the “Perini Navi Style,” world-famous for elegance and sobriety, and at the same time express a current and timeless language projected into the future.
Clean lines blend harmoniously with elongated and continuous curvilinear gaits; glass surfaces expand to diffuse natural and welcoming light into the interior. The stern opens to the sea becoming a true leisure area with the exterior decks defined by an organic and supple layout.
By analogy, the main interior spaces also tend to be large and fluid; the different uses dialogue with each other in a direct but discreet way, maintaining the necessary functionality together with an open and dynamic spatiality.
A blue leather handrail, as a “fil bleu,” defines and becomes a new leitmotif of the future Perini Navi world.
“I am very proud of the new Perini Navi fleet and the journey so far over the past year,” – commented Giovanni Costantino, Founder & CEO of The Italian Sea Group.- “By transferring the comfort of motor yachts to sailing yachts we have succeeded in creating a harmonious synergy thanks to our already strong expertise expanded through the Perini Navi acquisition. The nautical world is showing particular sensitivity to Perini Navi and our established reputation for design, quality and innovation will help strengthen the Group’s expansion and growth strategy.”
The “Genesis” Fleet
The new 48-meter will be offered in two versions: regatta and cruise. The new generation naval architecture will allow even more comfortable sailing while the open stern, equipped with a transformer, will facilitate access to the sea offering great comfort especially at anchorage.
Management of the sail system will continue to be concentrated in the two control consoles, with a series of joysticks facilitating safe control without the need for dedicated crew. The deckhouse, which has been re-styled, will retain Perini Navi’s characteristic stylistic features: side epaulette, a round of glass providing great light, and an enclosed aft cockpit to offer more privacy.
The new 48-meter vessel will have new hull lines to offer limited heeling angles, double rudders and movable centreboard to reduce draft as much as possible and facilitate access to remote ports and bays.
In the interest of sustainability, it will also be possible to install solar panels.
The 56-meter, Perini Navi’s most iconic sailboat, will be revisited through a collaboration with Malcom McKeon Yacht Design, which, with a strong focus on sailing performance, will develop the naval platform and sail system, as well as contribute to the styling of the exterior.
The new sail plan, with carbon masts, will ensure comfort and sailing performance through the use of Perini Navi’s “sail handling system,” with concentrated and power-assisted sail rigging control in the two command stations on the flybridge.
The 77-meter will be the platform on which to install the FALCON RIG.
The sailing ship will have two masts that will give great advantages in terms of navigation and safety. With the electro-hydraulic mast-sail management system, sailing will be extremely easy. The new sailing yacht will be the first platform to have a true spa-beach club with terraces that can be lowered and connected with the aft beach.
With reference to other Perini Navi-branded projects, four sailing ships are under construction:
Art Explora, the world’s largest sailing catamaran (47 meters long by 17 meters wide), designed entirely (naval architecture and interior) by designer Axel De Beaufort, for delivery in August 2023. 60-meter ketch, Ron Holland naval architecture and interior by French designer Rémi Tessier, scheduled for delivery in August 2024. 56-meter ketch with naval architecture by Malcom McKeon and interior design by Winch Design, for delivery in July 2025. 47-meter sloop entrusted to U.S. broker Bruce Brakenshoff of Edmiston, to be delivered June 2025.
