The Perini Navi Group has signed an order for the second yacht in their 38m Racing Line. Hull C.2130 is due for delivery in 2015, and follows on from her sister ship P2 which launched in 2008.

Work on hull C.2130 is already well progressed, with the yard having begun work on the project on spec. Construction has now resumed at the Perini Navi Group’s Picchiotti shipyard in La Spezia.

Compared with her sister ship P2, hull C.2130 has been designed according to a brief for fast and easy sail handling through three semiautomatic Perini Navi electric captive winches. The sloop will feature laminated sails, with a carbon fibre furling boom for
performance and safety in all conditions. Her hull and superstructure are in Sealium, a lightweight aluminium alloy that is highly corrosion resistant. Thanks to widespread use of latest generation carbon fibre in the boom, standing rigging, spreaders roll bar and helms, the yacht’s displacement is 160 tons while its GT is 171 tons. The yacht’s deck hardware will allow for competitive performance with limited crew.

For the first time aboard a Perini Navi yacht a “Silent Night” system will be installed. This innovative system lets all on board systems run on batteries while the generators are off. The use of this system is ulterior proof of Perini Navi’s green attitude and their desire to look for innovative, high tech solutions. When the yacht is running in “Silent Night” mode guests can enjoy a full eight hours of complete silence.

The sloop has a different interior layout to P2. The interiors are designed by the
Perini Navi Design Department and are typified by a sporty elegance that aims to optimise space and storage areas to made life aboard even more comfortable.

C.2130 joins two other yachts in the Perini Navi Group order book. The second yacht in their 60m line, sloop C.2218, is due for delivery in 2014 and the first yacht in their 70m line is due for delivery in 2015. The third yacht in their 60m line is on hold awaiting a buyer and can be ready for delivery within two years. The Group’s production plans also include the delivery of the third yacht in the Picchiotti Vitruvius series, 73m Grace E.
