Perini Navi sells 42m hybrid sailing yacht
Perini Navi has announced the sale of the first 42m unit in its new E-Volution line to an Italian client…
The 42m aluminium sloop is part of Perini’s latest E-Volution line, designed by Perini Navi designer Franco Romani with naval architecture by Reichel/Pugh Design. As alluded to in the ‘E-Volution’ name, the yacht will feature an innovative hybrid propulsion system that combines a main diesel engine with an electric motor. The system has been developed by the shipyard as part of its growing commitment to environmental sustainability.
The E-Volution concept moves away from Perini’s classic flybridge style and embraces more contemporary and flowing lines – the sleekness of the design is almost reminiscent of Perini Navi’s first motoryacht, M/Y Exuma. The design also includes a powerful but easy-to-manage sail plan, with laminated sails and carbon fibre mast, boom and rigging.
“The [yacht] forms part of a new range of products that we have been working on over the last year and is reporting notable success,” says Lamberto Tacoli, chairman and CEO of Perini Navi. “Innovation has always been one of the main values espoused by Perini Navi and we intend to continue to work on innovation in the years ahead, so we can offer our customers yachts that deliver ever better performance and have a unique style.”
As well as this new order, Perini Navi has various other builds underway, including a 60m sailing ketch, a 47m sailing sloop and two motoryachts over 50m.
