The Perini Navi Group has launched a new series of 60 metre sailing yachts and has already signed two sales contracts for a total value of more than € 70 million. The two superyachts, a ketch – C.2193 – and a sloop - C.2218 – will be delivered in 2013 and 2014 respectively . The new line of 60 metre sailing yachts – created and designed by the Perini Navi Group – represents the natural evolution of the successful 56 metre series that has already seen 10 yachts launched.
The Perini Navi Group closed the 2010 fiscal year with an order portfolio of € 126 million, while by June 2011, thanks to the sales of these two new yachts, the order portfolio has a value of € 140 million spread over 7 yachts: a SY of 45m; a SY of 40m; a SY of 50m; a sloop of 60m; a ketch of 60m; a MY of 55m and a MY of 73m.
Notwithstanding a difficult market, Perini’s 2010 performance was positive. The Perini Navi Group closed the fiscal year with a production value of € 102,4 million, with a growth of 10,6% compared with 2009. The principal economic indicators were all positive and aligned with the Group’s expectations: EBITDA was € 13,1 million and EBIT € 7,7 million.
In 2010 four superyachts, three sailing yachts and one motor yacht, were delivered. These were the 56 metre ketches Panthalassa and Melek,Fivea, a 45 metre sloop, and Exuma, a 50 metre Picchiotti/Vitruvius motor yacht. On top of these deliveries, Perini Navi also signed a contract for a 45 metre sailing yacht in 2010.
In June 2011 Fidelis – the tenth yacht in the 56 metre series – was delivered and in August 2011 the second Picchiotti/Vitruvius motor yacht, the 55 metre C.2156, will be delivered. And by the end of the summer Perini Navi will also launch the third 45 metre sailing yacht.
