Two Perini Navis 'grace' Monaco
The Perini Navi Group will grace the Monaco Yacht Show with two of its newest deliveries. The Italian custom builder will exhibit Seahawk, the first sailing yacht in its new generation 60m range, and State of Grace, the first sailing yacht in its new 40m line, in a world premiere at the 23rd edition of the show.
The 60m Seahawk is an important innovation, both in company strategy and in on board technology that guarantees speed, performance comfort and abundant space. Her aluminium hull and superstructure allow for a gross tonnage of less than 500GT and an optimised displacement of 570 tons. This ketch, designed by Perini Navi naval architects in collaboration with Ron Holland, has a total sail plan of 2,125sqm mounted on main and mizzen masts that are 62m and 52m high respectively.
Her boom, spreaders, headsail stay foils, diagonals and standing rigging are all in carbon fibre. A new generation of headsail furlers, designed and created by the Perini Navi Mast Department, have been mounted flush to the deck. The winches also are new generation for greater power and faster manoeuvring speed. Her interiors have been designed by the French designer Christian Liaigre who has created a 'refined and contemporary ambience with strong marine accents' aboard Seahawk.
The 40m State of Grace has also been designed by Perini Navi in collaboration with Holland. Her sleek hull lines and hull and superstructure in aluminium make for a displacement of 220 tons, which will assure impressive performance in all sea states. Her sail plan measures 1,192sqm and is mounted on a 50m mast equipped with a furling boom and standing rigging, both of which are manufactured from carbon fibre. The fast cruiser State of Grace has laminated sails for top sailing performance. Her interiors, designed by Perini Navi's in-house team, feature 'a pared down classical style enriched with contemporary design accents.'
