Perini Navi recently handed over its 60th yacht to her owner at their Picchiotti facility in La Spezia. Dahlak is the yard’s second yacht in a 38 metre series together with the 2008-built P2 that was designed in partnership with Phillipe Briand.
A very pleased owner had the following to say at the handover ceremony: “It’s a profoundly emotional moment for me. This is something I have envisioned for a lifetime. The Perini Navi team listened and understood my requirements. I’m an owner who wants to sail the boat himself."
“This is an excellent example of how Perini Navi evolves with our clients. Building on our in-house expertise, our team has delivered the most innovative sail handling and stored power systems to date,” said Perini Navi's CEO Enrico Dell’Artino.
The features found onP2which have made her such a successful regatta contender have been carried over to Perini’s latest sloop. Briand’s hull shape and plumb bow are identical to that ofP2. These deliver a smooth and comfortable ride with a touch of sporty elegance. Dahlak has also been fitted with the same highly efficient lifting keel which offers the helmsman unlimited control during tight upwind and high speed maneuvers. The water ballast system on P2 has been replaced with an additional eight tons of weight in the keel bulb, managing to retain the stabilityP2has become known for.
