Perini NaviYachts for Sale
Started in 1983 by Fabio Perini as Perini Navi to build sailing yachts, the Italian company today produces both sailing and motor yachts as the Perini Navi Group. All of the sailing-yacht activity (40 to 60 meters, 60 meters and larger, custom projects, racing yachts, and fast cruising yachts) falls under the Perini Navi brand. The motor-yacht brand is Picchiotti and includes the Vitruvius line of luxury expedition motor yachts.
Perini Navi Group production can be found in three locations: Perini Navi, Viareggio, Italy; Cantiere Picchiotti, La Spezia, Italy; and Perini Istanbul, Yildiz, Turkey. Each yard specializes in different areas. Viareggio houses the headquarters and the sailing-yacht division. The Picchiotti yard dates to 1600 and was acquired by the group to launch the motor-yacht branch. The Turkey location is the metalworking arm, where some of the hulls and superstructures for both motor and sailing yachts are constructed. The group collaborates with such naval architects and designers as Ron Holland, Nauta Yacht Design, Philippe Briand, Ken Freivokh Design, Dykstra Naval Architects, and more.
The group currently boasts 54 yachts on the water—52 sailing yachts and two motor yachts. On the sailing-yacht side, the most recent delivery was hull C.2173. While the most notable was the 289-foot (88-meter) Maltese Falcon, launched in 2006.
Designed by Perini Navi’s in-house team in conjunction with New Zealander Ron Holland, the sleek 164-foot (50-meter) ketch was built in aluminum and boasts a sail plan of 15,069 square feet (1,400 square meters), handled by 11 reel captive winches.
The Maltese Falcon made its mark with its distinctive stealth looks, three carbon fiber masts, automated square-rigged DynaRig sail plan, and sail area of 25,833 square feet (2,400 square meters).
Picchiotti, the motor-yacht side, has launched two explorer yachts, the first being the 164-foot (50-meter) Vitruvius Exuma and the second, the 183-foot (55.7-meter) Galileo G.
Exuma broke ground in 2010 for the inventive Vitruvius design by Philippe Briand. This rugged yet beautiful yacht boasts an innovative, sleek, and efficient hull, as well as a warm streamlined interior. The contemporary yet comfortable yacht accommodates nine guests in five staterooms and carries among other toys, a custom 16-foot amphibious jeep and a 12-foot Hov Pod hovercraft.
Galileo G launched in 2011 and carries Ice Class certification and an incredible 9,000-nautical-mile range. The yacht accommodates 12 guests in five staterooms, plus a gym that converts into a cabin.
Both the Maltese Falcon and Exuma are available for charter. Other Perini Navi Yachts that are available for charter include: Helios, Selene, Salute and Parsifal III.
