The latest superyacht gossip – 10


A few weeks ago a 74m yacht was launched in Australia. Her launch was a real surprise as most people didn’t even know she was under construction. Silver was built by Hanseatic Marine to a design of Espen Oeino. The all aluminium yacht can accommodate up to 16 guests and has a top speed of 25 knots. After completion she will set sail to the Mediterranean and will be available for charter.

The American owner of the 49.8m Perseus ordered a new yacht at Perini Navi. The 38m sloop P2 (C.2104) is designed by Philippe Briand and with her low profile and fast looks she is very different from the owner’s current Perini. Besides the 38m version Perini is also developing a 46m and a 50m version with Briand Yacht Design.
