During the press conference at the Monaco Yacht Show 2019, Italian yacht manufacturer Perini Navi presented new Falcon Rig Gallery, with seven yachts in build and an order book worth EUR 160 million.
Perini Navi' senior management presented their analysis of the first two years since the arrival of the yard’s new shareholders and management, and also outlined their main strategies and operational plans for the coming years.
Perini Navi’s order book is currently worth EUR 160 million, with three letters of intent also signed recently for a 92-metre sailing yacht from the Falcon Rig Gallery, a 47-metre E-volution sailing yacht and a 74-metre motoryacht. The yard also has a total of seven yachts under construction: two motor ones (a 53-metre and a 56-metre) and five sailing ones (three 42ms, one 47m and one 60m). In addition to that, Perini Navi delivered the 25-metre Eco-tender in August this year.
Production values jumped from EUR 35 million in 2017 to EUR 66 million in 2018 with Perini Navi expecting to end 2019 on a figure of 80 million. It has also consolidated its production areas and further strengthened the Viareggio-La Spezia-Turkey axis. Over the coming months, Perini Navi also plans to boost its coverage of the international markets by opening operational bases in Hong Kong and Monte Carlo.
Perini Navi Majority Shareholder Edoardo Tabacchi declared:
Throughout its history, Perini Navi has always pushed the boundaries of technological research and today is presenting the market with a series of innovative products that are absolutely unique in the sailing sphere. We have the largest output of 40-metre-plus sailing yachts in the world and have also just delivered the extraordinary Eco-tender, our research laboratory for sustainable innovation.
Falcon Rig Gallery
Perini Navi is also presenting its new Falcon Rig Gallery to the market at the Show. This is an entire product range spanning 56m to 92m models and inspired by the iconic Maltese Falcon the 88m clipper with which Perini Navi revolutionised the sailing world in 2006.
The aerodynamic efficiency of the sail plan has been optimised to guarantee superior performance. Automation, which has always been the jewel in the Perini Navi fleet’s crown, has been further extended with new generation winches, resulting in even simpler operation and easier handling.
Contemporary lines, generous volumes and new superstructures with an unmistakeable Perini Navi aesthetic characterise the entire range. The aft areas on all the craft offer hugely comfortable spaces which open onto a large beach area. The cockpit and saloon are on the same level and flow into one another to create a single open plan area, guaranteeing superb liveability both interior and exterior.
The Falcon Rig range spans the following models:
Specifically, the 92-metre, for which a letter of intent has been signed, has carbon-fibre masts, a 2,400 sqm sail area and an innovative arrangement concept dominated by a master suite which takes up the entire upper deck. Extensive use has also been made of glass, including for the main staircase which links all four decks, yielding exceptionally bright interiors.
Perini Navi Tailor Made
Perini Navi also presented “Tailor Made”, a whole new direction for the yard.
The yard recently signed a letter of intent for the first project, a 74-metre motoryacht penned by Argentinean naval architect and designer Horacio Bozzo.
The M/Y 74m Vanguard is the product of her owner’s passion for Perini Navi styling cues which Bozzo has skilfully reinterpreted and transferred to the lines and details of this motoryacht.
To reflect the creative, innovative spirit with which it revolutionised the sailing world, Perini Navi also presented the Perini Navi/Ora Ito capsule collection developed in partnership with the internationally acclaimed French designer. Ora Ito has transformed his vision of the Perini Navi world into a capsule collection that is a reinterpretation of the iconic 56m flagship of the yard’s fleet, producing two special designs in the process.
Italian builder Azimut Yachts has completed the Azimut Magellano 25 Metri and revealed first look images of the boat.
