The Perini Navi Group has recently celebrated the launching of State of Grace, the first yacht in their 40 M Fast Cruising series, at the Perini Navi Istanbul/Yildiz shipyard. Following the 88 M clipper The Maltese Falcon, this is the second Perini Navi yacht to have been constructed entirely at the Group’s Istanbul shipyard.
S/Y State of Grace, designed in-house by Perini Navi naval architects in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland, has sleek lines and both hull and superstructure in aluminium. With just 220 tons displacement, this yacht is sure to perform brilliantly in all sailing conditions. To performance add the comfort, quality and safety features that have always been a distinctive feature of Perini Navi yachts.
The 1,192 sq mt sail plan can be handled by just one person thanks to an innovative sail control system designed by Perini Navi and built by their Mast Division. This yacht has a 50 M mast, furling boom and standing rigging all made with state of the art in carbon fibre materials. To guarantee performance, this fast cruiser has laminated sails.
The yacht interior spaces are spare and classic enriched with touches of contemporary flare. The main saloon is on two levels and has a comfortable dining room and an ample living area. The yacht’s four cabins, including a full beam owner’s suite with a gym, have innovative layouts and can accommodate up to nine guests comfortably. In the transom area, which can be reached along an elegant staircase, a hydraulically controlled platform gives direct access to the sea and a 5.5 M tender is stored in a semi-recessed well to keep the yacht’s lines harmonious and sleek. The interior design and layout are the work of Perini Navi interior designers.
Meanwhile, at the Perini Navi Istanbul-Yildiz shipyard work on the first yacht in the 70 M series, scheduled for 2015, is proceeding well while the third yacht in the 60 M series could be ready in the next two years.
In the year 2013 the Perini Navi Group will launch the first yacht in their 60 M series as well as the 73 M motor yacht from the Picchiotti Vitruvius® series.
