The Perini Navi Group has announced the launch of 60m sloop, Perseus3, the second in a series designed by the in-house team in collaboration with Ron Holland.

Perseus3 has been designed with speed in mind and features a lifting keel that can alter the draft from 4.3m to 12.3m, as well as Perini’s first carbon fibre bowsprit, which was included to facilitate faster sail changes and a larger sail plan. This comprises two gennakers, one code 0, one reacher, one blade, one spinnaker staysail, one working jib and a 10,000sqm main sail. 

On the deck the design of the captive winches offers a 35t pulling load and a speed of 110m/minute for manoeuvring the jib. Both the 75m mast and the 23m boom are made of carbon fibre. The re are two opening beach platforms and an infinity pool on the foredeck.

The aluminium hull and superstructure were constructed at the group’s Yildiz yard in Turkey, while the interiors were designed in-house. The layout itself comprises five cabins accommodating 12 passengers. The owner’s cabin is full beam, but can be divided via a removable wall. 

A third hull in this series is due to be launched in 2015.
