Philippe Briand has released more information about Perini Navi project C.2130. The project has grown from 38 to 39 metres, and this performance sloop is due be launched in July 2015. The yacht has been developed as a sistership to the highly successful 38 metre P2 launched in 2008.
Briand has modified a few of the characteristics of the original P2 design to better adapt the design to a full performance/cruising program. Changes include a furling boom, and the water ballast on the 39 metre has been neutralized, giving more usable space inside. The aesthetic roof design accentuates the yacht’s dynamic character. It houses an extremely spacious and well sheltered cockpit.
“The 39m is a very responsive swift and agile yacht. It has an appealing attractive design and size for owners looking predominantly for performance It is fully optimised and highly competitive in superyacht regattas as well as offering very comfortable cruising features. Once again my team and I are delighted to partner with The Perini Navi Group to further develop this successful design.” said Philippe Briand, Naval Architect
Last month Perini announced the design of another 39m performance sloop, Project C.2196.
