Perini Navi has signed two contracts in August for the construction of a 50 metre sailing yacht, and a 73.30 metre motor yacht from its Picchiotti-Vitruvius® series.
The Perini Navi Group, which has entered the motor yacht market only two years ago with the relaunching of its Picchiotti brand, celebrates the third contract for the new Picchiotti Vitruvius series. The first two models, a 50 metre and a 55 metre, are currently under construction.
The two contracts, one for the Far Eastern market and another for the American market, reinforce the leadership of the Italian shipyard, which is based in Viareggio.
Delivery of the 50 metre sailing yacht, designed by Perini Navi in collaboration with Ron Holland, is planned for 2012, while the 73.30 metre motor yacht, designed by Philippe Briand, will be completed at the end of 2013.
The order backlog of the Italian group has weathered the current recession extraordinary well, and now amounts to EU 230,000,000, with 7 units under construction for delivery in the next few years.
Perini Navi also reports a turnover of EU 94,000,000, an EBITDA of EU 8,500,000, and a pretax profit of EU 7,000,000 for 2008 and expects further improvements for 2009.
