Perini Navi Group launches 73m 'Grace E'
By Ellie Brade
The Perini Navi Group, has launched 73m Grace E, the new flagship 73m Picchiotti motoryacht that is the third motoryacht sold by the Perini Navi Group, at its Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia, Italy.
Like her predecessors 50m Exuma and 55m Galileo G, Grace E is part of the Group's goal of relaunching the historic Picchiotti brand name in the world of large motoryachts. Grace E has the same hull and superstructure design elements that both characterise the rest of the Picchiotti Vitruvius® series and assure efficient and autonomous navigation. Grace E has an advanced diesel-electric propulsion system with two Azipod propellers, that allow the yacht to reach a cruising speed of 16.5 knots. Grace E is also equipped with a variety of tenders for the exploration of the surrounding environment.
Ideal for cruising in the Mediterranean or in the Caribbean, Grace E has been designed for autonomous and energy efficient cruising in comfort and safety. Exterior spaces are divided over five decks. The Upper Deck, also called the Wellness Deck, has an area that is entirely devoted to wellness with a gym, a sauna and hydrotherapy equipment. The interior, designed by Remi Tessier, is elegant and contemporary.
The 73m yacht will be delivered by the end of the year. Her launch follows the recent delivery of 40m State of Grace, which launched in January 2013 and delivered in September 2013, and the launch of 60m Seahawk in May. At their Perini Istanbul-Yildiz shipyard the Group is currently constructing the first sailing yacht in their new 70m series, scheduled for delivery in 2015, and the third yacht in their 60m series, a yacht that can be delivered within two years. At their Italian shipyards they are also currently constructing the second yacht in their 60m series, the sloop C.2218, whose delivery is scheduled for the year 2014, and the second yacht in their 38m Racing Line. Grace E’s launching along with the launching of the first sailing yacht in their 60m series, both of which will be delivered within 2013, are part of the Group’s production programme for 2013.
