Perini Navi refit recommences
NCA Refit and The Italian Sea Group welcome the 53m Jasali II as work continues at the Viareggio site…
Perini Navi has welcomed its first refit since its acquisition by The Italian Sea Group. Parent company to four superyacht brands, The Italian Sea Group confirmed the successful acquisition of Perini Navi for €80million at an auction in Viareggio in December 2021.
“I am extremely proud of this operation. We wanted to go further with the investment, but we arrived at the auction with the absolute determination of wanting to acquire all the assets based on our consolidated, expertise and new contracts, especially in the segment of large sailing yachts,” commented Giovanni Constantino, founder and CEO of The Italian Sea Group at the time.
Following its declaration of bankruptcy in January 2021, Perini Navi had been offered for sale at auction twice unsuccessfully, with reports from various interested parties, including Palumbo Group, Sanlorenzo and Ferretti Group, expressly stating that they believed the original asking price being too high.
The 53m sailing yacht Jasali II (pictured above) was launched in 1998 and is one of the iconic early large sailing yachts to be delivered by Perni. The refit is slated for a general survey and redesign of the exterior undertaken by the NCA Refit division of the TISG Group and supervised by the yacht’s Captain Danilo Lo Bianco. The refit of Jasali II is scheduled to be completed by April 2023.
According to an official statement, production of the 60m Katana has also resumed. The Italian Sea Group has affirmed that Perini Navi would make three large sailing yacht deliveries by end of 2024, including a 47m sloop and a 56m ketch. The new fleet will be made official in February 2023.
“I am very proud to have here today an icon of Perini Navi history, the 53mt Jasali II, an important return to the territory and a tangible sign of continuity,” says Giovanni Costantino, Founder & Ceo of The Italian Sea Group. “In 2023 we will complete the refurbishment and rebranding of this site by completing the TISG 4.2 investment plan, which also includes the expansion and renovation of the Marina di Carrara headquarters and the La Spezia site, where the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 production has been completely transferred.”
