Hull C.2193, the first of the two yachts sold in the new-generation series of 60m sailing yachts built by Perini Navi, has arrived in Viareggio.
The hull and superstructure in aluminium were built in the Perini Istanbul-Yildiz shipyard, the Group’s Turkish base. Finishing, launching and delivery, scheduled for summer 2013, will all take place at Perini Navi’s base in Viareggio.
The new hull lines, that can be seen as a natural evolution of Perini’s 56m series, guarantee speed, comfort and ample spaces for living both indoors and out. Hull and superstructure in aluminium make for a gross tonnage of under 500 tons and a displacement of approximately 570 tons.
The ketch C.2193, designed by Perini Navi’s naval architects in collaboration with New Zealander Ron Holland, will have a sail control system designed by Perini Navi and a lifting keel that goes from 4.30 to 12.30m.
During the coming year the second yacht in the 50m aluminium series will be delivered in May and the first yacht in the 40m fast cruising line will be delivered at the end of the summer.
The Perini Navi Group is also currently constructing the third yacht in the 60m series and a 38m yacht in their Racing Line. Both these yachts could be ready for delivery in less than two years.
